What you guys are saying is right, but that doesn't change the fact this is all so a REQUEST sub-forum and what I'm requesting is to extend this policy to also give those banned permanently their warning mainly in reboot as their won't be a change in the economy(since their is none), only server activity. I understand those hacking should be banned but I'm still going to push this request until it gets formally denied because I have nothing better to do at the moment. It still seems like a plausible scenario as those accounts would still be kept off rankings allowing players who compete through ranks or want to keep a legitimate guild what they want, increase the population even if its only by 1, me, and if they'll still be flagged by GM's as per their current policy. Granted it then provides them more work but it would still have the possible outcome of players coming back and continue playing without infringing the ToS this time around.Part of the problem is that unbanning people that have used hacks or bots to train is allowing people that have levelled characters extremely easily and quickly to still use those high level characters that they cheated to earn, which isn't fair on players that legitimately earned their levels through lots of grinding and hard work. It'd be letting everyone get away with blatantly breaking the terms of service, and I wouldn't think it likely to ever happen.
So this isn't a real suggestion but more of a ban appeal for your personal account because other people are botting more than you did and they haven't gotten perma'd yet.I have to agree with this. If people playing exclusively single player or private multiplayer games want to use cheats, mods, hacks or anything else you'd like to call them, that's totally fine. They're only affecting their own gameplay experience or that of their friends, and if that's how they'd prefer to play those type of games, they're free to do whatever they want with their time. But any form of cheating in a public multiplayer game like an MMO deserves to be dealt with harshly. At that point you're always going to be negatively affecting how someone else plays or is able to play the game, and that just isn't fair, nor is it fun for those players affected.
Funny thing is that the slap-on-the-wrist was the old policy and supposedly the new one was gonna be stricter (with permanent removal of rankings etc). It just hasn't been enforced a whole lot lately from the looks of many maps...
Don't do the crime if you can't do the time, mate.
