I tend to believe that there’s a lot more to something than the vast majority of us know about, and that a decision to ban, i.e. losing a customer, is something that isn’t done lightly. I don’t know the specifics, so I’m going to assume there was either an infraction or a mistake. I don’t know which, because I don’t work for PG and I’m not a banned player. So, I reserve judgment because it’s not mine to make.
I do know that when I feel frustrated and don’t have an explanation, and I come onto the forums or one of the other groups and find information to fuel my feelings of unfairness, that I tend to have to check myself, because there are two truths: playing this game is a choice I make; and I only have control over my own choices and behavior. If I can’t move forward with some degree of positivity, I need to take a look at why I’m still playing this game, and what I stand to gain from feeding into negativity and victim-like behavior and discourse.
I’m not saying love it or leave it, I’m just saying there is usually less « evil » stuff going on than you might think, and that there really are options in how we all behave, and what type of energy we choose to put forth in this game and its community.
We had a teammate who found a glitch, pointed out the glitch, and got banned. They’re back. Getting back into game involved direct communication with PG. Player and PG, as a result of that communication, came to a resolution. Let’s hope the players who feel they were unjustly banned will take the same action. None of us knows the details, so I’m inclined to leave this in the hands of the players and PG.
