Can't join the gamezzz

Postby Emma_Stone » 18.12.2012, 21:20

Yaooo..
A very odd and strange problem happend to med recently.. for about 2 day ago i just couldnt join any game for what ever reason.
When im spelling the game name and presses enter the game could not be found.. And i know im spelling it correctly... Have i been banned? Does anyone else has or had this problem that could help me?
I have tried to creat a new accout but that did not work either AND i can join other games like WmW, line tower wars etc, but not battle-ships xfire............. verryyy strange indeeeeeed

Just to clear matters about this ban:
You got banned for using maphack - The first 10 minutes of your last game got reviewed and it was enough to reach a verdict. Another player in the same game but in the opposing team was banned too for same reason.
There were many occurences where there was suspicion of maphack usage and in about half of them we gave you the benefit of doubt. Following are the times and moves/clicks that were taken into account:

Highly suspicious moves by player 'emma_stone' (time of replay): 7min34, 8min50 and 9min39

Clicks through fog-of-war by player 'emma_stone' (time of replay): 3min 33, 3min58, 4min38, 4min45, 7min45, 9min04
(Note that these were the definite proofs needed to confirm maphack usage and these are the really obvious clicks e.g you clicking a trader in his base while are in yours- There were 16 other occurences when you clicked through fog whereby u were given the benefit of doubt )

Okey! Yes i admit i was using map hack at that time! First i was using the map hack with another accout named terra.fritzl as a "fun thing" when i played against a friend and the map hack was left..
Anyways, so im IP-BANNED for life? That means i cannot play any battle-ships anymore unless i get a new IP?

I cannot understand why people say they are using it for fun
really if i would hack your bank account and rob all the money for fun what would you say then?

i wouldnt even have fun winning this way as the game wouldnt be competitive and i would know that i dont really deserve that win

Yess, i agree with you El-Trickser.. I was not proud neither did i deserve winning a game while using MH...
But i did it only couse my friend had played Bships so much more than me, and i thought i would be fun to kick his ass and he does not know what's happening.. "kick his ass", take that with a pinch of salt.

You still have not answered my question.. Am i "IP-BANNED" for life? CAN or CAN'T i play anymore?

I am not the one to have banned you and as a consequence wont be the one to remove this ban.

Positive point i that atleast you admitted using it.
Negative point is well just using it. Even if you used it with other account for 'fun' you still used it on main account AND on that terra.fritz account too on bships league

Maybe we can review the ban in 2-3 weeks, but then the question is how much time u used it? one game? Ten games? this is still to be known

its up to say_no_to_war if he unbans you again

if it would be up to me i probably wouldnt remove bans for maphack as i cannot really believe that they wont do it again...
especially because it was not the first time i heard that its just being used "for fun"
but thats just my point of view and its good that its not up to me to decide if you will be able to play in a couple of /weeksmonths/years again, as my view about those things is narrowed

Im gonna be as truth telling as possible couse i really wanna play again.. Ive played more or less 5 games with MH on the Terra.Fritzl account and perhaps 5 games with MH on Emma_Stone and more than 150 games without.

You should have a fixed time, like a month or more if a player uses MH and so he can see it.. And if he does it again it would be like 3 months ban etc...
So its easier to see and so you dont have to go and ask for a couple of days.

Well, i should not have used maphack again if i knew i was going to get banned so easily and for a much longer period than the first time.

Anyways, i realy liked this game couse there is no haters in it. Atleast not when i was playing it.

But its up to Say_No_To_War.. i can accept some banned months but not a life ban, i just want to have a decision.. If i can play more in some weeks/months, or if i would have to change my IP but thats just a pain in the ass.

Well... gj by our admins finding another maphacker. Of course every maphacker only used it only very few times. And didnt know it could lead to a ban. blabla. Sry but everyone sais that - and its true only for some. How can we know who sais the truth?

If there are no consequences even more people would cheat.

I also guess, you know that using cheattools is never allowed. I dont know any multiplayer-server where its allowed to use such malware. On bnet in normal games you can even get your cd-key banned. Permanent, forever, to go and rebuy a new wc3+roc key.

"2. Permanent ban reasons (2 admins decide that):

2.1 Use Cheattools, such as Maphack, Custom-kick and any other game-influencing programs."

Of course this perma-ban can be lifted again, if the admins want to do so and think that you dont cheat anymore. But how can we say that? Maybe we do that in a few days, for the holidays or later. Your banned since 14.12.12. So it should last for 2-4 weeks at minimum.

Note that if you or anyone using your ip maphacks again you will get a permanent IP-Ban.

Btw some maphacks used to have hidden trojan horses in it, so maybe do a virus scan with an up to date scanner.

According to the bots you are not banned anymore. (Account Emma_Stone was the one i just checked) If there is still issues joining the games, let me know here and I will see what I can do.
