Fair Play Update: Ban Wave, Verified Mods, & Terms of Service


The intense Iron Age clashes on the Global Map have ended. The event was competitive and bravely fought, but sadly some players—in and out of the event—may have taken things a step too far. Following the event, we feel that it is important to remind players that we have zero tolerance for cheating. Fair play will always be among our top priorities.

The Spirit of Fair Play
World of Tanks has always been open to modifications and customizations, as long as they align with our Fair Play Policy. However, we do not approve of unwanted, cheating, and harmful software that manipulates gameplay and provides unfair advantages. We will do our best to keep the gaming environment as fair as possible.

Our Terms of Service and Licence Agreement
Violations of our Terms of Service and the End User Licence Agreement are not tolerated, and we actively work to stop cheaters who use harmful and unwelcome software.

Penalized, Warned, & Banned Accounts
Today, we have taken another step in this direction and placed a massive ban wave across all servers. In this wave, we’ve penalized 2,920 accounts in the EU region: 2,070 of these accounts have received their first warning, and 850 have been banned permanently.

Verified Mods
This ban wave will be followed by others in the future, so be sure to visit the Mod Hub to find all the verified and newest mods for World of Tanks. The Mod Hub is the safest place to download various mods for World of Tanks, without worrying about policy violations.


Let’s play fair and enjoy the game responsibly!
