Hi, was banned over a year ago for tking and was instructed to wait a while before appealing again. Given the elapsed time, would it be possible to lift the ban now please? Will behave this time! Thanks.

RE: Ban Appeals
Thank you for your reply - I sincerely can’t recall prior warning, especially not that I would receive a lengthy global ban, so it must have been a while back. However, I have an atrocious memory and trust that perhaps there was a brief discussion once in the past, and again apologise for the most recent incident.
I must say, though, I do think more adequate warnings would be appropriate for future offenders. It is fair to enact punishment for tking - ignorantia juris non excusat, after all. But, it seems a disproportionate punishment, give the nature of some of the other offenses people are banned, and later forgiven, for.
Anyway, thank you for your time in reviewing the case. It’ s been fun, but this heavy handed ruling has completely ruined the game for me, so it’s time to delete and move on to pastures anew.

Who banned you: Valind
Reason for ban: Teamkilling
I was playing on a Black Knight server last night (03/09/16, 23.30 GMT) – there weren’t too many people on, and everyone was being goofy. Teammates were cutting each other’s legs off and whatnot – no one was complaining.
A player later joined and I believe I may have shot his leg off. He didn’t take well to this and killed me. This began a back and forth that culminated in him typing something along the lines of “admin plz come and ban him he tk”.
Valind logged on and said he/she was going to give me a global ban. I have to believe it was based upon this incident alone. He/she claimed I have broken numerous rules in the past, though I have never received a warning or been even spoken with a Torn Banner admin before.
We had a conversation, which was fairly casual, where I said genuinely couldn’t believe intentional teamkilling was against the rules, as team damage is a game mechanic. I didn’t mean to appear contrarian, it just seemed odd that would warrant a global ban on official servers. Having actually read the rules, I stand corrected.
I do apologise and acknowledge I should not have carried on the tking, which was childish.
This does not detract from my own behaviour, but the gentleman who complained about me began the round I was banned in by killing me. It seems odd that I would be banned at his request.
I do not wish to question Valind’s judgement, but I have put almost 380 hours into this game and, to my knowledge, this is my first incident. In the grand scheme of things, I felt this was not quite a significant enough event to warrant a global ban, without fair warning.
Anyway, thanks for your time!
