The end of this video is particularly satisfying...
If this video sounds like a bit of a rant, you would not be wrong. War Thunder sim is currently suffering systematic abuse by those who wish to circumvent War Thunder's broken progression and economy system, regardless of the negative impacts this has on the greater community.
This video exposes the ways that people abuse the games mechanics, and outright breach the game rules (https://warthunder.com/en/community/gameRules/).
As a result of exposing cheaters in the past, and due to my channel now gaining some popularity amongst the sim community, I have literally recieved hate mail, horrific messages, threats of DDOS attacks from those who abuse this game and don't want to be caught. So yeah, the matter has left a bitter taste in my mouth.
Am I deterred? No. I love this game, I really do. And I believe it is important to raise awareness about this issue. Like me, if you want to see improvement to the game, please - PLEASE - make your voice heard on the official forums. It is the main place where you will be heard.
