May 2018 Ban Wave


#664

Potential scenario:

Ice flak super hits and disabled shield. Then almost immediately after, u got hit by a dark flak super and a fire flak normal. That could kill u :man_shrugging:


#665

No probably about it. It for sure does.

What it doesn’t do is disable passive, impact pre casted spells, or fire on a dragon that is not an eligible target (currently cloaked or similar spell)


#666

I suppose the brightside to anybody banned and mistakenly leveled their ember is they get to start again with a level 1 ember.


#667

Agree. Necessity to exploit glitches is a sign of weakness.


#668

Thank you for that info. I’d much rather assume a tower had an ability I hadn’t known about then someone was nefariously changing tower stats behind the curtain.


#669

You know, it seems like the number of random invites I get has increased since the ban wave. What used to be only 5-6 in a day has quickly become 20+ daily invites. Makes me think that the teams all lost a lot of players, perhaps due to the ban wave? Whatever the case, it’s super annoying having important team mail shoved to the back and risk being deleted because of all these invites. Can I interest any PG employees in looking at this thread? Specifically that last bit.
Idea to make recruiting easier and to block unwanted invites because we NEED this!

I know I am not gonna make friends here, but I would like to ask @PGJared to lookup the ticket 1162859. Two days ago one of our officers was banned and there is no response from anyone untill now to that ticket, other than the usual first response. I’ll let him speak for himself, he tried contacting @PGCrisis following my advice, but for now nothing has come up. It’s frustrating for someone who runs 12 hours a day to get the tokens needed for his first Obisidian - as he did last event - and be banned for it. In the last week he had 3.0 M medals because of all the runs he did. Please, don’t get me wrong, I am all for the bans ! But when innocent people get the ban with the crowd, I find it hard, especially for the team. IF @PGJared can look the ticket, look at the facts and give him a verdict before this week event starts would be great ! Thank you !

Jared wrote a while ago if u tag any PX here in forum to check Tickets regarding Bans he will put this Ticket in the very end of the Waiting List.

so now you probably wait longer. just wait till someone answers u


#672

Jared stated if it was done at the same time. This has been two days now …


#673

That’s a bit of misinformation. He said if you send a ticket and tag PX team at the same time, THEN you’ll go to the back of the line. If you send a ticket, you feel it isn’t being handled correctly, and they aren’t escalating it, then you can ask for PX involvement.

my bad. im heading back to my corner


#675

I’m not sure two days is sufficient time to wait in this case. There are doubtless numerous ban appeals in the system already. I think a week would likely be safer before pestering Jared about it. Simply because I wouldn’t want the ticket to be moved to the back of the line.


#676

2 days for an initial response?? That’s more then a sufficient time to wait.


#677

Just to let you know, it is not me who’s banned. I always kept a decent conversation and will always do, whatever the context. It was also my initiative to write today here, in the forum, not the one who’s banned.
The person who’s banned, I know him since my first days in game, since the begining, he was always an officer and always there for everyone. I thought I had to do something for him. If I am in the wrong, I ask @PGJared to disregard my message, but don’t put the ticket at the back of the list because of me.


#678

The ticket was submitted and received a response from an agent in under 4 hours. (I never know whether to use less or fewer in that situation. I lean towards fewer because you can count hours. Anyways…) Once they replied and asked for it to be reviewed again it was placed in a queue to have a specialist team review it. That team has a large number of bans to review.

See above. The initial response was delivered in just under 4 hours.

Don’t worry. I’m not going to do that. Their ticket will retain its place in the queue.


#679


#680

Less than 4 hours.


#681

I love that we’re all discussing grammar now. I should really create a pedantry “pet peeves” thread at some point.

We should get back on topic now…


#682

Put ensure and insure on the list please. And moot/mute.


#683

Add initialism vs acronym to the list as well.

On topic: is this the last ban wave as pg is transition to a more “nip it in the bud” approach or are there a few more waves coming?
