Banned for "Hacking"
« on: November 11, 2020, 11:29:13 pm »
So I was banned for hacking today, not exactly sure why. If it was because I got in a glitched spot on hue that isn't hacking that is just getting into a glitched spot which I would be happy to show you how to get in. If that's the reason I feel like I should get a warning first instead of an initial ban because I didn't know that was not allowed and if I did then I would not do it (have not been banned from any other server so far in this game for getting in glitched spots). However my friend who I was playing the game with said the admin said that they banned me because I was "making wide 90 degree turns" whatever that means. I will tell you that I play on a widescreen monitor on the max resolution with max fov, and I enable the peripheral whips. So the extremely wide field of view and the white dots of the peripheral whips make it very easy to scan an area for enemies especially when I am in an elevated position like I was on apache snow when I was banned. In addition to that, if you are camping a spot, you should never only look at 1 direction because then you will get flanked or miss out on potential kills; it is necessary to continuously check you entire field of view and potential flanks which means constantly turning to where you think enemies might be (if you can't already see them with the peripheral whips which you usually can).

If there is not compelling evidence against you, the ban will be appealed.

Ah I think I see, yeah you mentioned getting in glitched spots. This is cheating (specifically: glitching) by our definitions. And we ban people without warning for this type of behavior. Basically the people who have to be told that this is bad behavior are people we avoid, and actively look to remove. I'm sorry you feel that this is unjust. I feel for you, I do. And I understand that it's not the most fair policy, and I might criticize such a policy on official game servers (hosted by the game company). However, we are a community owned server, and we are a community that puts maturity first. Part of our definition of maturity is having the awareness to recognize when a behavior is obviously inappropriate. Technically, team killing is "allowed" by the game; as is griefing and other such behavior. Cheating is one of the behaviors for which we have a zero tolerance policy. I appreciate your honesty, and it might be different if we could not reasonably support intent. In our years of experience, people who are willing to cheat in even these small ways generally exhibit other aspect of poor sportsmanship.  And our policies reflect our strong stance on moderation, and providing a server as free from bad behavior as we can manage.
