Hello everyone. I'm sure this is just round 2 of the mass bans that happened a few months ago but it seems that I've been caught in that net by association. It's been a great run with this game and I'm glad to have made many friends in game. From my self diagnosed addiction to the game in 7th grade to now (about 10 years? damn), it's weird to imagine how much more time I will have now. It's a pity that I had just finished getting all the HP Bayld for Idris the night before I got banned. Maybe that's SE's way of playing some cruel joke. I wish you all luck in the future as this game reaches its end.

Best wishes, Fobby. Sorry to see you go.

I haven't been using any cheats since my suspension, but I wouldn't be surprised if somehow got caught in the same net.

I'm sure they're just taking GM calls and doing a guilty by association check on anyone with a mythics or ergons. For what it's worth, it was fun playing with you, Fobby. Best wishes.

yeah... i guess having 3 mythics, empy, and ergon would be a red flag for definitely cheating

If you weren't actually botting and got accused of it, I feel genuinely bad for you. I really wonder honestly if ANY sort of investigation is actually done or what...

On the bright side, addiction broken, so it's not all bad. Still waiting for mine, as I'm to weak to do it myself.

Just call SE and talk it over with them, since I'm sure by this point in the game, they probably want your continued income. Worst case is that you have cemented closure, best case is they do the ol "We'll investigate further" routine and a few months later you might get your account unbanned.

Nothing to lose but time you would have put into XI and a phone call to Cali, you know?

There's a Kanye West joke in there somewhere.

LOL just isn't a good enough response to this post, I don't know what is, but laughing my *** off isn't good enough either... have you ever talked to SE customer support... I'm gonna guess that you have not.

I haven't really done anything with you in years since we were in the same ls and did ballista together, but sorry to hear that you got banned Fobby. Good Luck with getting an explanation from SE (you'll need it!) and Good Luck with whatever you do next in life!

Sorry to hear that :/ If you need an account you can always use mine. I hardly play this game anymore. I have a geared THF/WAR/BRD/poverty BLM.

So they do 1 and done bans now?

I've come back to the game every few months over the past year, but I played a lot ~ 4 years ago. I remember your name but we rarely spoke. Sorry to hear you got ban't :(. Best of luck to you.

Old sayings are just bad analogies.

At least they're trying to do away with the botting/clippering with a serious consequence. If you didn't use any of it, that sucks and I feels for ya ... but if so that's your fault.

Way to be judgmental in a 2 month old thread. Hopefully dude has moved on by now.

Is there any reason left to bot/clip anymore? Everything is so braindead easy and accessible as opposed to the old days. I can't imagine anyone still doing it for "convenience", game is already QOL'd down to the lowest degree.

Yes and no. There are a few good reasons, but they don't justify it's use. If you want to use them or associate with those who do, have at it, but be prepared to accept the consequences like a man as Fobby did.

It's odd, I don't get their punishment decisions, it's certainly not a 1 and done thing as I only got a 72hr ban for what I assumed was my Clipper use, hence why I've stopped using it.

Which is largely because I was using it to let my mule keep up with me but I suppose I got a bit carried away and was flee-speeding everywhere.

Might have laughed if I got jailed and a GM just said "Sir, do you know how fast you were clipping back there?"

What's the point of using flee-speeding? just teleport with maint flag on then turn it off to avoid being caught. Flee speeding around is stupid.
