Hello again :)
Dear Torn Banner,
Dear Official Admins
my name is “Nein, mein Kaiser”, I’m here in the ban appeal section for the second time, something I’m not really proud of.
Steam ID: STEAM_0:1:17823110
Server you were banned on: All Official Servers, even Hordetown :/
Who banned you: Unknown
Reason for ban: Not sure, I can only assume…
My problem is the following:
I got banned April, March maybe May 2015. Not sure actually.
Most likely for the same reason I got banned before: I happen to share a friendslist with people who thought spawnkilling was exciting. Maybe there’s another reason I got banned but since no one ever said a word to me, I must assume this is a repetition of what happened to me before. Let me explain:
Watch this video:
I used to be and still am “friends” with some of the “heroes of Agatha” but I never took part in their professional spawnkilling sessions. I never participated in “toxic behaviour” like they did, although I have to admit that I didn’t exactly try to stop them from what they did and more than once I was “supporting” their toxic behaviour, for instance by laughing (voice commands) at the poor souls they spawnkilled.
All the spawnkillers in the video above are banned for a good reason and obviously this video functions as evidence to why they are banned. But there’s no “Nein, mein Kaiser” sitting in the spawn. Not in this video nor any other video. It never happened. Not a single time! I’m not a bully, I’m not a meany, I’m not insulting people (except for of course laughing at other people’s misery by pressing xx2 is considered offensive). For most parts I’m a defensive player who loves to just talk (voice commands) and parry-riposte! I don’t sit around in the spawn to troll people. There’s a German saying “Mitgefangen, Mitgehangen” which sort of translates to “we caught you with them, so we’ll hang you together with them”. I get it. But if that is the case I’m still wondering why it is such a big deal for an admin to text me and settle things from Kaiser to Admin. It’s not like I’m not listening to or ignoring warnings by an admin. But no one ever said a word to me.
If I have to delete these people from my friendslist in order to get back my freedom: So be it. But I want to make clear that you understand that I don’t even know these people! Everyone’s got a couple of friends in their friendlist who you add because you played a round or two with them and it turned out to be fun. When I met these guys they weren’t the d*cks they are now. They were quite okay. But obviously they got bored with the game. I didn’t, I even own a ton of custom skins. Why would I risk wasting all that precious money by spawnkilling…?
I didn’t and I don’t! And yet I’m here again for the second time trying to regain access to official servers. Who ever thought “Hey let’s ban ‘Nein, mein Kaiser’ again” should feel free to not only explain to me why he or she banned me but in my opinion he or she should also inform me about my misbehaviour straight away and be able to provide evidence for it.
I hope this explained my position well enough. Now, I don’t say the admin’s point of view is invalid. I’d just like to actually get to know the responsible admin’s point of view on why I am banned and what I am supposed to do to get this fixed for me.
Thank you all for you patience,
Nein, mein Kaiser
