    We need a spot to collectively discuss the ban hammer that went out today for 7 day and 14 day suspensions.

    From what I have heard, some are justified, others aren't. Was this an automation that went rogue?

    Whats interesting is that a lot of warpers/afk scripters are still in game and not suspended.

    Let's use this as a place to discuss ideas, share our thoughts and compare the fairness of it.

    I saw a GM check on a player within 5 minutes of my petition of a suspected botter on Vaniki.

    As some might have noticed, there was a suspension today for the usage of third party software. For more information on this, please read the TOS for cheating software: or this forum thread: If you feel you have been unjustly blocked, please send a ticket into Customer Support following this information:

    Thank you.

    I appreciate the way you do your job.

    I do also.

    I do wonder at the decision to do this on a Friday before a three day weekend. Anyone who was "unjustly blocked" now has to wait until Tuesday at the earliest for Daybreak to start on their ticket.

    I doubt they care. I mean.. they still make you create a new account to appeal any sort of infraction on your real account. Pretty funny.

    They don't care. I've been wrongfully suspended and proved my case via email to them and they didn't lift it.

    My advice. If you are logged in and you got the email of suspension. Just don't log out. They don't kick people off the game that have been suspended.

    I’m just here to read the comments from all those super innocent high quality community members that got banned. Fight the good fight, comrades!

    want to bet in a few of the last waves member of my guild where hit and where kick form game the instance they where suspended.
  14. CatsPaws Augur

    Huh, they do all the time. Forum is not the game. Usually they plead their case that it was not a valid ban.

    Or maybe they just make a lot of "new" forum accounts and post

    At least they're cleaning up the botters!

    Its funny whenever these ban "waves" go out and the people come complain about it and call it "massive" and such, yet none of mine ever get banned, and at most I've known of 1 person that was hit. Maybe if you lie down with dogs you get fleas if you think this is happening "massively".

    It's allowed to discuss these items. Any system/game that prohibits its player base from discussing the rules that govern it is a very unjust system. We should be discussing how they operate since they effect us.

    I know dozens of players across guilds in yelinak that gave been booted for no reason

    New TLP server, tons of people suspended for using third party software.

    I just assume people suspended for “no reason” are lying 99% of the time. You could be suspended today on Yelinak for something you did in January on a totally different server.
