BOT Hunter By System98, Locastan & St0rmshadow

System98, Locastan and St0rmshadow prepared for you something quite interesting. A mod, that will identify known botters on your and enemy team. The mod is really simply – whenever one of those assholes is in battle, it will identify him in team roster like this:

The best part is, the botter list doesn’t require any updates, it’s updated automatically. Requirements:
To show the little boticon besides the playername in battle you will need XVM with activated clanlogos in the config. If you don’t want to install XVM, you will miss the little icon, but still see the fantasy clan [BOT!] if a convicted bot is found in your battle.


- Storm confirms, T49 will come this year (SS: T49 LT is a project to upgun Walker Bulldog with 90mm)
- Sheridan appearing in WoT? “No chance”
- Storm is not happy with the fact that a tank can “disappear” when not moving and “reappears” when it starts moving again, he thinks about changing this somehow
- vertical aim aid will be optional (SS: as in, you will be able to select where you aim horizontally too, I can’t remember how this damn thing is called)
- Storm states that various way of fighting illegal mods and software like CRC checksums and memory detection are “not easy to implement and not effective”, they are apparently easy to bypass
- there will “relatively soon” be a “big new mode for clanwars”
And a big change:
Developers decided to remove the 12th battletier in 8.11 (SS: If you don’d understand what that means, refer towotwiki). The reason for it is that “it is really cheap means of reducing the tier 8 waiting times and giving additional incentive for grinding tier 10 vehicles”. Apparently, this was a player idea, that got considered and was found good.
(SS: effectively it means tier 8 vehicles will see more of tier 10′s in their battles, this will not affect tier 8 premium vehicles)
- it’s possible that open-topped vehicles might be nerfed (by 2,5 percent or so), but their crew get an “open-topped” skill bonus to compensate (so people don’t complain about not being able to use the ventilation on them)
- KV-5 will not return to the ingame shop apparently

“Camouflage is a coefficient. As an example, take 0.5 – that means that a tank with 400 meter viewrange will see the enemy with 0,5 camo factor at (400*0.5) = 200 meters. Movement and shooting increase this coefficient, while camo net and camo skill reduce it. Specific values won’t be disclosed, for individual tanks they can be found quite easily in training room.”
