  1. Let's not focus on cheaters'/false bans "problem" for a sec, but on CoC and ToS violations leading a ban lift. I think Matt did 2 huge mistakes talking about "multi-year bans" when someone could have been banned literally this year or 3 weeks ago, and above all the disgusting use of the word "mistakes", meaning racist/whatever remarks, multiple attempts to ruin others' game experiences, death threats and many many many more examples of "breaking the rules" scenario , are considered... simple mistakes. We are not talking about something "subjective" (take this term cum grano salis), like "Omg, 90% pop is cheating/I bet my life he's legit, unban my friend" and so on. A scam is a scam, ethnic slurs are ethnic slurs, menacing someone to kill him/her irl is something serious even if we aren't snowflakes, and they are the first examples I am thinking about. So, again, where's the zero-tolerance Matt was talking about at the beginning of his journey on APB? I think we understimated this problem, considering I keep reading (even if interesting) replies about cheating. Or maybe it's too late (2 am) and I need to got to bed...
  2. "We didn’t JUST unban cheaters. We unbanned players who violated our terms and conditions, such as selling items online or bad conduct in game. A multi-year ban for those kinds of mistakes seems punishment enough. We believe in second chances. This is it. It is an opportunity for everyone to start fresh, respect the rules, and enjoy what is coming." A smart move to use the plural, meaning, in the far future, no matter how (much) intentional cheaters/exploiters/people breaking CoC and ToS will keep... doing what they were doing to be banned, they will be unbanned over and over and over and over and over and over and over. I guess the famous bulgarian-english cheater was right typing: "WE ALL KNOW getting banned after the first time OBJECTIVELY doesn't count so we can keep cheating". Congratz, you showed again you are only 1-2 steps above prostitution. I hope you will teach your children (but I hope you're not a parent, at this point) the meaning of ethics and morality, and the difference between "educere" and "instruere" (a good reason to learn some latin, applied to real life). But seems you desperate need money coming from a bigger playerbase (don't worry, it's a cheap but always useful and working strategy). One question: what you were thinking, years ago, when you said: "We are not going to tolerate any kind of behaviour or action against our terms and conditions"? Too bad I'm disillusioned enough this post will be deleted after 1 minute. Absit iniuria verbis! (P.s.: What I typed DOESN'T APPLY TO PEOPLE FALSELY BANNED, ofc)
  3. And this explains - or it's one of the main reasons - for this one: https://steamcharts.com/app/113400 Considering they "need to sell numbers", it is/was/will be convenient to go on with these not-so-regular unban waves (and I am not morally judging ipso facto)
  4. Yes, please! Release names too! I do miss to login on sites like FFbans as Ante Pav... and "politely" comment about banned cheaters.. I mean, to read interesting convos and explanations about their bans. On a serious note, Dota shows ban stats on (not so) regular basis too, and I can receive notifications about banned people I reported without revealing names.
  5. "Silly" referred to the flag as an object or for what it represents?
  6. I basically should check 210+ terms only to hope to not get reported/reprimended/banned because I genuinely thought I used a neutral number (i.e: in my case, considering I was born in 1988, I can't use my "nickname + 88" on my car anymore). If I use any number, that, according to that site, will EVENTUALLY be added in the future because marked as racist/linked to white supremacists, I risk a ban. If I want to type "100% legit player" on my car, or use any forbidden number in my clan name (i.e: "100% pro") I risk a report and a ban ("100%" is in the list). Same for any Internet meme like Pepe the Frog because would eventually be appropriated by white supremacists/alt right. Same if I add "Ford Orion", because this last word is "flagged" in that site. Honestly, as you can read, I answered "AGAINST" OP complains, but I begin to think you - as LO - are goin' beyond EULA/CoC/ToS/my-way-or-the-highway/whatever if we fall into this kind of... stupidity. Btw, there's an interesting tho' ambiguous disclaimer in that site: "All the symbols depicted here must be evaluated in the context in which they appear. Few symbols represent just one idea or are used exclusively by one group. For example, the Confederate Flag is a symbol that is frequently used by white supremacists but which also has been used by people and groups that are not racist. Similarly, other symbols in this database may be significant to people who are not extreme or racist. The descriptions here point out significant multiple meanings but may not be able to relay every possible meaning of a particular symbol". Maybe you - as LO - can begin to use "common sense" and evaluate every single case before judging or take sudden and - repetita iuvant - eventually wrong decisions. And no, I don't think you are "promoting" "cancel culture" and I hope we will never reach that point. It would be a shame and a tragedy.
  7. And? What does this prove? A sort of prescription hypocrisy? Times change, world changes, people doesn't change (well, debatable). "My way or the highway". Or ask 'em, ALL TOGETHER, to look closer and deeper about this (not so interesting) issue, persuading them to change their minds.
  8. This reminds me the good ol' times (not really) when the kekkest thing I witnessed was a "wonderful" showcase of Pedobear vans just when (incredibly) GMs were on, and players offering free candies in district chat without risking anything (no warning or bans considering the same people were daily playing). Anyway I agree: "their" game, their rules, even against common sense (if any). I hope a "Hello Kitty" flag I have in mind is not going to have the same problems. And remember: "The right to discuss is a privilege—it is not an entitlement you earn by playing the game". Hehehehe
  9. You reap what you sow, dear "Mr. Pirbu". Btw, playing the smart "alpha male" role, showing your (pumped) muscles, taking selfies all the time, mocking others because "You ALL KNOW WHO I AM and I can do it" (not mentioning buying followers on IG (and you're not even - what was the term you used? Oh yeah - smart (repetita iuvant) to hide it)), and then complaining as your were still virgin, doesn't underline your sensitivity and intelligence. (not mentioning your previous ban...Uh? What you say? You weren't "him"? I apologize in this case!) On a (more) serious note: You didn't express your 2-cents only, like you pretended, but facts or, worse, speculations, hearsay, interpretations, lies (if we take granted what that person - who was him? I can't remember, LilyV2/LillyVanilly/whatever - said on these forums: "Everybody lies"), generalizations (dozens of players? why not hundreds? Do you know the exact amount or are your guessing? In which ratio are there "silvers, casual players, veterans never accused of toxicity or worse (do you know if they used alts as well?). Did you really contact "multiple of the banned players"? In which %? How do you know they are telling the truth? How can you say - for sure? - "they remove from the game that last healthy part that you had left of it" (sic). Do you think they are telling what exactly happened because the mighty Darleenko contacted 'em? About the "I'm not here because I'm a "streamer"and think I'll be better served, but as a player" part and the "Che Guevara" role you're impersonating: sorry, sir, it doesn't work this way, irl. It's called "pars pro toto" and linked to what you've done, how you acted and reacted from when you appeared "here" (read this last word in the widest possible meaning, not "on the APB world" only). I surely don't like some harsh comments about you, but, as I say, you surely aren't that unharmed snowflake. Read this (IF, in your case) unfair "accident"/false ban, a chance to reconsider your future behaviour and to leave behind/elsewhere that "unpunished", arrogant, irreverent (mind you, I didn't type "disrespectful") dimension of your soul. Absit iniuria verbis! (Side note: I'm "disillusioned" enough to say my reply will be deleted for (alleged?) derailing within an hour or two. I hope you will read this in time!
  10. So, basically, it's not a "goodbye", but rather than a "farewell" (to arms).
  11. Probably the only decent thread we'll see this year.
  12. @JellyTOP I really like and appreciate your efforts and time spent to "develop" this "new mode". You have a lively mind. Congratulations, and feel free to upload more images and/or show more ideas (not zombie-related too). Unluckly, keep in mind none of them will (almost) achieve something at the current state of the game.
