Attention Commanders! This is the list of players who have been banned or suspended in This Means WAR! These player's accounts were investigated for suspicious account activity and enough evidence was found to warrant Customer Service action. These measures are for the purpose of protecting other players from malicious activity that results in a bad player experience. No one likes to go up against cheaters, hacks, and glitches in competitive video games.
Please review the This Means WAR! Anti-Cheat Policies for more information: http://forums.tapzen.com/discussion/4972/this-means-war-anti-cheat-policies/p1
A few players have appealed their bans and suspensions. We're taking the time to review Combat Logs, Error Logs, Crash Reports, and our own experience in matchmaking. I will be updating this list if any of those appeals are successful. So far only 1 players has successfully appealed their suspension. blah
has been a dedicated member of this Community for longer than I've been on the forums. When his name showed up on our list I was quite shocked. However, I didn't let my personal biases towards him get in the way of doing what was right. His account had been flagged for crashing other players and we determined this did in fact happen. Players who have expressed knowledge of the problems in the game are given less leniency by our team, as they have no excuse for being ignorant of the problems they themselves complain about.
However, after discussing the situation with blah
we have determined that his excuse for the bug was for experimentation purposes for understanding the bug and not for abusing it. I dug deeper into the logs and determined that Blah does not have a deep history of questionable play. His reputation on the forums as a helpful Community member for solving technical problems and being a voice of reason during heated debate appears to coincide with this assessment. He explained why his account was bugged when Customer Service found it and apologized for the incident. It appears to have been accidental. Blah also provide valuable information that provided more clarity on the bugs that are currently in the game. Since this was Blah's first recorded / reported offense I have decided to lift blah
's suspension. He will receive the standard warning of a 10 Medal loss.
We're still processing more appeals. I will post any updates in this thread.
We've spent the week reviewing all of the information avaialble to us detailing the activities of the players appealing their Suspensions / Bans. Here is what we've come up with:w0lft
are having their suspensions lifted. After digging through their logs we have determined that their is some ambiguity in their records. While some players listed here have obvious red flags, these 2 players records are much more muddled. We have decided to put these 2 players on a watch-list. They will both be fined the standard 10 Medals.marc
was found to be in violation of our cheating policies. However, due to issues with the language barrier and his Alliance members vouching for his return, we have decided to give him a second chance. Marc's Ban will be downgraded to a 3-Week Suspension. His Medals will be restored to his highest Medal count - 1000. JackSparrow
has been given a second chance based on his reputation in the Community and his willingness to admit his limited wrongdoing. His ban will be downgraded to a 3-Week Suspension. His Medals will be restored to his highest Medal count - 1000.
All other players listed were found to be in violation of our policies multiple times. They were properly warned, acknowledged that they would discontinue their activities, and then proceeded to get caught again. This concludes our investigations into these players accounts.
Many suspensions have been lifted today. Please avoid using exploits when playing This Means WAR! valterkenzo and slavyan were found to be in violation of our policies this week and have been suspended.
