would this lead to a perma ban?

 

 

It may very well.


Indications are that it is not treated lightly.

My concern is that 64m would be a red flag to WG and that they would deem it as unlikely to have so much. I'm not entirely sure if that amount is considered a small sum in game standards.

 

WG is not seeking out players who have nn millions of credits in game. Many people have ample millions around to buy their next high tier vehicle(s) and equipment.  

 

Key difference is, did you accumulate yours in live battles, slowly over time? over the course of many week and months? 

Or did you accumulate yours in training room battles over a very short period of time? over the course of hours or days within the past couple weeks.

​Or just play Ru 251 a bit. That one drains credits faster than flushing them down the toilet! 

 

Hmmf...Funny! (...but sadly, true enough, perhaps.)

Really, I make way more credits in Obj 140 than Ru 251.

So now everybody who doesn't promote it and doesn't try it leaves 20-75k on the table ... brilliant.

even though its against eula, why wont they just take all the creds away and then ban for a week? Then in that time they can work on a patch.

Short answer yes.

 

If someone got banned for this would it be permanent or temporary?

I don't mind.  At least I won't have the nagging fear that WG may one day EMPTY MY GARAGE or worst yet PERMA BAN ME.

My best guess would be punishment fits the crime. If you accidentally did it a few times and stopped prob nothing. If you grinded out like 500k+ I'd expect something, maybe a few days. If you went and did like 50m credits perma ban could be coming.

This.

 

 

You are not seriously suggesting that it was intentional to allow players to print unlimited credits right? Because it is a bug and you will get in trouble if you abuse it. Trying it out once to document and send in a report of it won't get you in trouble, but if you magically have +5 million credits.....you won't have any leg to stand on if you get hit with a ban.

 

I really hope WG goes after the offenders with a vengeance. As someone who has played other MMOs that fell victim to unlimited credit bugs I can attest that nothing screws up the game more than stuff like this. It's impact is minimized because of no trade/economy but there is an impact due to players having tanks that were clearly not earned which means more people playing in tanks they don't know or tiers they are not really ready for.

I'd feel pretty sorry for anyone who did this without realizing what would happen. Luckily I saw the comments coming into this post after a few goes and warned my fellow clan members and a few online friends not to do it, but you could easily get a few mil deep very fast.

Your argument fails. A very skilled player, who cannot afford a premium account nor premium tanks, coupled with the crippled "credit profitability" system that Wargaming has put into place since 2.7 or 2.8, may be much better a much more skilled player than one who could have "bought his way" into higher tiers.
