How can my mom know my playtime?

Yeah, listen to yo' momma :)
Even though it might be very annoying for you that she keeps track of your game time and sets limits for it, she really has your best interests at heart.
You can talk to your parents about how it makes you feel like they still don't trust you though, and maybe get to understand each other a little better on the subject and work out ways so you *do* feel trusted. I'm sure they do, maybe just not on the gaming so much yet.
I tried to do things to make them ''happy'' and i took responsibility but then one day my mom said that it wouldnt work... Then a couple of weeks after that they said that if i, stopped playing in and all normal things i have to do i could get my own responsibility when im older... I hate to wait on things in years i dont even play wow then and when i start raiding its not going to be easier to stop playing in time! But its hard for them to trust me because i played a lot to much before i played wow i was like 8 and it happened when i was 9 to so they havent got to trust me in 3 years even if i dont do anything like that... I just dont like to be watched over
Everyone takes "years" to grow up. That's how life works. ;-)
Let me just mention something here:
You say your parents don't trust you, and on the same page you are asking about ways to SNEAK AROUND behind your parents' backs, and get around rules and limits they have set for you.
It sounds to me like your parents have good reasons to not trust you. The very fact that you created this thread shows that they have good reason not to trust that you will abide by the house rules, and be responsible.
If you are that obsessed with the game, it is probably affecting other areas of your life, and your parents see it. The more you push to spend more and more and more time on the game, the more they feel that your priorities are not straight.
The more you try to sneak around on your parents, the LESS trust there will be in your relationship. You obviously don't trust them to have your best interests in mind, and to do the best they can for you. Otherwise you wouldn't be fighting them so hard as to ask complete strangers how to get out of the rules your parents have set in place.
They obviously don't have evidence that they can trust *you* to do what is in your best interest. Otherwise they wouldn't be needing to be strict with how many hours you play, etc.
I agree that the best thing you can do is chill. Don't let a video game be the biggest thing in your life. And don't lie to yourself that you are doing everything to try and be on the right footing with your parents. If you're going to sneak around, you're going to sneak around and misbehave, but don't try to act like you are keeping your nose clean when you aren't.
People eventually see through other people that are being fake, and it isn't attractive. ;-)
Quite true, all of it.
I am a mother. My son is almost 11, and I know with absolute certainty when my son is being genuine, and when he is trying to be manipulative.
No decent parent would allow themselves to be manipulated by a kid; ever. If you messed up, and are now facing the consequences of your actions, this is good. Every choice you make in life has a consequence. Accepting those consequences is called maturity.
It may seem unfair to you, but these are life lessons to prepare you to wear your big boy pants.
If you try to make amends with your parents for the right reasons, they will see it. It probably won't change the consequences, but this is good parenting.
Be grateful you have parents who love you enough to care about the kind of adult you are going to turn into.
And for the love of god, go outside and play.
