WonderKid's Second Ban Appeal
In Game Name : WonderKid
Job of Character: Kaiser
Staff who banned you : Blaise
Reason For Ban : Apparent links to char "Mohr" who chargedback via paypal
Why should we give you another chance? : I wanted to reply after Blaise replied and closed the thread. Even after pm-ing him, I have failed to receive a reply. For the record, check my track records and you will realise that all my eqs are farmed by myself and built by myself. I have spent months playing this game slowly building up my character. All of a sudden, I receive a message that I got banned because of someone I have barely even spoke to, in game. What I dont understand is that, I never even had any Aries points transaction with Mohr of any sort. How does that make my account liable for a ban? I have always been playing at a LAN shop, else at my friend's place. If you were to look into my account, I barely even have mesos or Aries point. Even if I have aries point, upon tracking, it will lead to donations made to the site. After writing a nice and polite appeal despite being wrongfully accused, I get a short reply and that thread is closed. How is that justifiable for someone who has spent so much time on the game, painstakingly building up my character and stats? All I ask is that you GMs look seriously into the appeal. Looking back at my in-game transaction history would be more than sufficient to prove my innocence. Yet, I cannot do anything about it now? If i did engage in illegal activities which breached the ToS, then fine, I accept the ban like a man. But now, I am getting banned for no good reason. You have just voided me of any rights of speaking up, the moment you closed the thread after the reply. This really makes me question the credibility of the administrators here. Gaming itself is for fun, to relax and enjoy socialising ingame and what not. Competitive player would of course, strive to build their characters stronger and better. All I can say is that, you have officially breached the trust of players who spent so much time and effort on this game. I'm pretty sure i am not the only one out there who has gotten banned for no apparent reason. If you were to become a GM, the responsibility is to facilitate a healthy gaming environment within Aries itself. However, through this case, you have just proven otherwise. Ignore this post if you must, for all I care. I am already done with this server considering how I am actually voided the freedom of voicing out my concerns. Giving me a pathetic reason which a 3 year old would also tell that it is wrong, only shows how much of an authoritarian culture you guys have. Last but not least, thanks for banning a player who has actually bothered helping people out in the game, making me feel so helpless at the unjust done. If you are that lazy to look into appeals on a case by case basis, I would give you a suggestion: Don't take up that GM role.
Image of ban message*:
You were banned when a HWID and IP Ban is issued out against the player Mohr who apparently plays at the CC which you yourself also played at. When a HWID and IP Ban is issued out, all accounts which have the same HWID and IP with the account the ban is issued on will be affected. We are only aware of this issue when the employee of the CC came and inform us of the situation. Which is when the IP ban for the CC was lifted and thus all of the accounts which are banned along with Mohr's chargeback and is currently linked to the CC's IP address are being looked into and once no association with Mohr is determined, will be promptly unbanned.
Hi Elyx, I sincerely thank you for the prompt and much more detailed reply.
Some queries I have to your reply are:
The CC that I play at, had an IP ban for about a week or so, as of recent, the ban was lifted and I do notice patrons playing AriesMS here. Hence, I suppose that from this gesture, the CC is cleared of the IP ban. Elated at the situation, I tried to log in to my account, only to face another disappointment.
Some points that I wish to highlight are: I have never dealt with Mohr in DP before, an easy investigation into the transaction records will show that I have never bought or sold Mohr any DP. This runs in conjuncture with your message of Mohr charging back, to which I assume anyone who has dealt with him in DP will be sadly implicated. (since the purchase of Aries Points have a direct correlation to Paypal.) As such, I am really puzzled as to why I am even involved or implicated.
What are the chances that I will get my account back? After this 1 week, I am truly sick and tired of having to 'stalk' the forums, getting short and non informative replies, sending out long PMs to justify myself, but only to be disappointed that it was blatantly ignored. I understand that this appeal may serve as annoyance to you, but i ask simply of you to be empathetic of my situation here. Just imagine having painstakingly building a character, only to be banned as part of collateral dmg which is almost unavoidable(no one in game, could ever find out if the person he is dealing with, does a chargeback at all). Please understand the distress coming from my end. I played this account for long hours and suddenly all my efforts are going down the drain, I am sure that is something worth feeling distress over. Please do keep me in the loop at the very least to the progression of the investigation. In the case which I am unfortunately unable to gain access to my account ever, please do let me know too, so that I can just suck some thumbs and move on from this wronged situation. Thank you and have nice day!
