I am registered on S4 League since sunday 18th April - 2010, 03:27, when I registered on this game using Alaplaya.
The last five times I had logged in on S4 League:
- 11th September 2017
- 08th May 2018
- 16th July 2018
- 31th July 2018
- 07th August 2018
This can be checked on S4DB:
I have stopped playing S4 League on 2016. Since them, I had logged in on it a few times, when I missed this game so much that I couldn't refuse to play just some matchs.
Well done. The IP unban has been released a week ago, a lot of friends were talking about playing some matchs, like the old times. I decided to enter on the game again 30th November.
I think I tried to play all day. But I was getting DC every 15 minutes, so I think I just have finished 4 or 5 matchs.
After getting one more DC and then trying to enter 10 times, getting the classic "The Connection with the game server has been terminated" every time I entered on the server selection screen, this error appeared:
Apparently trying to enter on a broken game is a violation of the service. I submitted a ticket for Aeria, requesting a explanation of what was happening.
My account was suspended for just trying to logging in the game. But Aeria explanation was a bit different:
They said I was banned for "hacking" (?). Why would a veteran use any kind of cheat on one of the few times he enters on the game in the entire year?
So could you, Aeria, kindly explain what kind of hacking I am being accused of? It is not fair to just ban people without providing any proof of allegations.
Please, I kindly request you to check the log files and tell me what kind of hacker I have used. Because I haven't used any. This is not fair.
I've already submitted a "Ban Appeal - I didn't cheat" for Easy Anti Cheat support. This was the response:
Therefore, if I want to get back my account, I need to request a review from EAC.
But EAC is requesting a number that Aeria can not provide me "due to technical issues".
Basically I am being banned without any explanation and without any possibility of challenging the legitimacy of the judgment.
I am wondering how much people are getting these bans randomly and will not appeal, will just sit and accept this Aeria's lack of organization and commitment to the players that made this game alive for so many years. I was looking at S4DB posts and it seems a lot of players are on the same boat as me, getting banned randomly and without any proof or clear explanation, and without any possibility of review.
So, it seems this is the end of my journey on S4 League.
