The OP of that reddit post is using Hakabase mod pack. A few weeks ago, some players got suspended for using an unfair mod in the Hakabase.

My mods are all from the Hakabase modpack downloaded from the official forum.

So far, I believed it's safe to use the WoWS Multipack as all mods are verified, approved & compiled into pack by WG.

The mod that i noticed not in the WoW Multipack verified version is "Running Lights" - iirc thats the one that tells the opponent that if the target is moving forwards, backwards or stops. I think that the person on Reddit issues is a result of that mod in particular.

crap, that the mod I use the most (light indicator that tell ship move forward/backward/stop)

the problem is player don't know which mod are fit the bill for ban

 

change in script???

what is script? what it mean to change it?

simply tell enemy movement considered as change script??? isn't it only see the script?

man, I'm confuse now.

 

mod that I use most of the time is 'fog remover/anti glare' 'ship moving indicator' and 'angle indicator'

Aslain's mod pack has been given the green light by WG. Aslain himself checks with WG to insure nothing being added to each update of the modpack is 100% ok to use, so that players will not have any issues that will come back to bite them later via suspensions and bans.

However even in the latest Aslain release, that I use myself, the running light/speed indicator is still included in the mudpack.  :Smile_amazed: I honestly don't really find it all that useful. I got on fine without it. Might be a good time to re-install Aslain's modpack but remove the running light/speed indicator.

More than just a bit useless when people, like the WOWS player in the reddit link, get stupid robotic generic responses from WG, to serious mod questions regarding their account which they have sunk such a large investment of time and money into.

If something in the official and approved modpacks can get you banned, WG please tell people for goodness sake!

Funny how ban doesnt have a unified list of dos and donts for every region. So far , i have seen completely unjustified ban on something with no clear guideline on mods.

Pray how did the average person tell if a mod had script in it or not. NOT every person is good with computers or are experienced in this area. They use safe mod pack and still got banned ? Wait what ? SO WG IS TELLING PLAYERS NOT TO USE MODS RIGHT ? Then clearly cut the line and tell us upright about it. END OF THE LINE.

@Spotter summoning thee to give us some insight about this , there is no WAY everyone can distinguish such a grey area.

As far as I know, all complaints about wrong/unclear bans start from NA server and not Asia/EU. I highly suspect that WG is experimenting some kinds of anti-cheat tools on NA before applying to other servers and it just doesn't work there in the first place.

I agree that vanilla is 100% safe, but then why even have WG approved modpacks? What is the point if something in it can get a player banned for breaking the rules? Absolutely absurd that players doing nothing illegal get suspended or banned and then get no response from WG as to why their account is suspended or permanently banned! :Smile_amazed:

If a customer bought an expensive network locked smartphone with an expensive monthly plan and got their service permanently cut-off for using an app that they were told by the provider was ok to use on that network, do you think the customer would be happy? If when calling the providers customer support all they get is a generic "sorry we cannot do anything" response do you think the customer would be happy? They have done nothing wrong yet have a product they have spent money on that is completely useless and unusable. Not the best example but you get my point. No one would stand for such shenanigans.

Many game features we have now have come from mods originally and were officially added to the game. Plus WG says they support and encourage the modding community in WOWS.

Either support mods and be clear and upfront about what is ok, or make it an even and fair playing field for everyone and ban all mods altogether.

Typical WG. Ban first talk later.

Lucky I dont use mods. 

The WoWs Mod pack is verified and collected together by World of Warships, the mods you see in it are safe to use
