Friend Banned 30 minutes into playing?

Recommended Posts

Iniquityy

Hello, I recently talked one of my friends into purchasing the game so we could play together. He just bought the game earlier today or yesterday and was able to play for the first time about an hour ago. Only about 30-45 minutes into the game he was banned. We are unsure why as he just started and his name isn't inappropriate.

 

The message left for him was "Your account YikersBuddy was blocked for violating USER RIGHTS AND BOUNDS OF USE OF THE GAME of the Licence Agreement."

 

If any staff could shed some light on any reason he would be banned just moments after logging on for the first time that would be greatly appreciate.

Thank you for your time.

Did he have any shaders on or any software playing in the back that could be potentially listed as bad juju?

They've said they won't ban for shaders. The game just won't boot with current reshade version.

Did your friend buy a key from a sketchy source? Not to accuse but is it possible your buddy also picked up some...let's say, performance enhancement as well? Or has been banned in other BattleEye games?

Either way they probably won't do anything here, try a support ticket maybe? But they probably had a reason.

You're completely wrong, and absolutely ridiculous

@Iniquityy Did your friend use any form of AHK, any macros? Scripts running? Bat files? Does he use visual studio?

To be fair, the whole " banned by mistake " thing gets more and more impossible to be accepted currently. It used to be a good excuse when there was no 3rd party anti-cheat and ppl blamed it on the BSG anti cheat, but nowadays its a bit harder to believe.

Main reasons for your "friend" being banned may be : - where he bought the game ( resellers, or bought the account from someone...not allowed )

- Possibility that he was actually cheating.

If he bought a second-hand account, selling/buying accounts is a violation of TOS, this could be the reason.

For everyone who seemed to think he was in fact cheating or broke TOS; he was unbanned this morning. He was banned by the system thinking he was hacking, but the manual check doesn't occur until after the fact. He found this out after placing a ticket and contacting support.

 

Thanks for your not so helpful criticism anyways :)

Replying to both of you, yeah from what i understand he had something that could've been falsely identified as hacks. He was unbanned this morning after contacting support.

 

I appreciate the actually useful response rather than trying tot ell me me and/or my friend was lying.

#Manual checks done by competent people are best checks .

Thanks to BSG for being reliable and trustworthy in their ongoing fight against cheaters .

 

Good thing this situation was cleared up .

Stay safe,

sneak well .

And then get banned for multi account if he would create topic -> repeat = another ban etc.
But still, that friend must be not smart enough, if he forced you to create TOPIC on forum, instead contacting support on his own, even with multi account -.-.

That's actually really good to know.  It was always a unsung rule that the bans are manually checked then players get banned.  I wonder if this has something to do with BattleEye?
