So I was on a server and got banned. OK, they say it was my stats. My the junky player that reverts to ramming. Upon further investigation the admit I was not banned based on cheating or stats and that they had the entirely wrong. they picked my account because someone has the exact same name with but has a few letters that are capital i instead of capital l. My guess is it was someone I reported to evenbalance. Anyway that account is a totally different IP and GUID. Then they finally admit they had a totally wrong account. Then they say oh it was because of an associated IP/account.
On their link it is clear they are banning a lot of people because of associated accounts.
This is not name shame this is me asking for help. It is the BF4DB folks and I am not sure how they can legally take away your right to play based on a GUID that is not even yours.
They in turn say now that I was banned because of an associated account.
How is it possible that someone can take your usage rights away based on what they believe is an associated account. Yes, BTW my family has many accounts.
So if we are going to start banning and blocking accounts based on IPs or associated accounts that would wipe out a ton of accounts.
You pay for a license key.
You do not cheat.
You get banned because they say another account which has not been played on in 2-3 years has a similar IP and was banned by punkbuster?
I do not care if I have 100 banned accounts, if I pay for a new one that does not give you the right to ban it.
These guys even admit they had it wrong, but still say because of the associated IP and account I am banned.
Discrimination much. What is this ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Germany and everyone gets a pink star.
