The issue is that several players have been banned for no reason, and appeal wtickets are all closed without any explanation. We had to harass livechat support for 1+ week to get an internal mail adress to send the logs.
For instance, my GM Aomey, who is 100% legit, has been permabanned for 2 weeks already, he doesn’t even know what he did to be banned in order. Some other people like Nazboz have been unbanned already.
Sorry but the QoS regarding this is the same as patching : mediocre
Ah if only that were true, the botters we’ve been reporting for weeks might have actually been dealt with, and I would still be willing to log in and play the game.
This is the important bit, basically you guy’s do not know what is going on with that side of the game, so it would be really nice if we could actually raise our concerns over the complete lack of professionalism exhibited by the team in charge of appeals without our threads constantly being closed.
I know you guys get a lot of crap from us @Ulver and believe me I appreciate that you’re just trying to do your job in a corporate monolith that doesn’t give you any say in what goes on, but it’s only going to be made worse for you guys if we can’t actually get anyone higher up to address the issues we are experiencing.
I have submitted reports on cheaters and been sent back ban appeal denials, it’s as if they are not even reading our reports.
I’m going to start adding other experiences with the appeals team not reading the ticket or giving inappropriate responses to this post. If I add yours you don’t want it here let me know and I’ll remove it, or you can reply with your own.
This is the last time I bothered to file a report on a botter, I received a ban appeal denial;
And I must stress that this is a complete and utter lie based on other people’s bans, their appeals, including my own permanent ban for cheating yet I never did anything to warrant that ban. There are screenshots of people who have forced name changes, company names too, because they get mass reported. Innocuous names too like Adam, Bob, or even “Some Company Name”. (It’s literally a tactic to get a free name change btw).
Stop touting that “mass reports don’t result in bans or punishments”.
Lies and lies and lies,just say the truth your a peon and you know nothing of what they are doing,also adress this issue to devs/support teams…start play your own game to understand the players and what its going on in game!!!
Been banned for almost a month man, every other appeal contradicts the one before. A majority of the live support chats also are common in nature where they differ in the extent of help they are “able” to offer. Maybe it’s they are told it’s not automated but how much can basic AGS support know about moderation if they claim they aren’t able to access the information at all. Telling them the truth about the automation to the people who have no control over bans could just mean more of a liability issue than necessary. The people to blame are the moderators who don’t truly investigate appeals and the ones who put the system in place. At the end of the day, all we can do is speculate what’s going wrong behind the scenes. Best of luck to you man!
User @Dedaoff has done a much better job of compiling evidence and screen shots in their thread here;
If you have evidence showing the incompetence and ineptitude of AGS please go and add it to their thread, Thank you.
I’ve a bad enough problem with anxiety and depression due to my real life issues I don’t need this shit making me feel worse, It takes me a good while to write these replies and it leaves me shaking and exhausted if i’m not in the right frame of mind. So I’m probably not coming back to update much more. AGS wins, I’ve gone to play something else.
I’ve gone back to modded Minecraft PVP in fact, at least in massive public servers the volunteer moderators actually have a damn clue about the game they are moderating and know how to investigate reports and ban cheaters. Hell the one that came to investigate my “worryingly quick” progress when I joined the server asked me how long I’d been playing modded MC for, and when I replied I started with the first Buildcraft release on Bukkit he said he was only 3 years old when that came out. So this kid is 13-14 and has a better grasp of customer support and game moderation than the people AGS are hiring.
They literally ask us to use third party hosting for evidence, pastebin for logs, Imgur for pictures, and youtube etc. for video. They do not have any way, anywhere, for us to upload information directly to them.
Still there are People which are using bots to farm and still there are People getting banned for nonsense , go get all these bug users out and these bot using scrubs make this game playable and remove People’s bannes which are nonsense otherwise this game will die way to early. Next days are way to important to let people stay playing the game or continue playing the game so get your ass up devs and work more effective. I spend more time in forums and in conversations about the game then playing the game. I like the game and it got potential to be very good but if you keep annyoing Player it will die.
