Ban Message (Gyazo/imgur or copy and paste):
You, or another user of this computer or connection (Evafan) is banned from playing here. The ban reason is: Core 2- vaid hunting Max capped the cult before halos, admitted to knowing it was against the rules and said “I hope I don’t get bwoinked” in dchat after doing it. Extended due to intentionally breaking server rules and the mass damage caused. Round 19161 This ban (BanID #27343) was applied by Horatio22 on 2022-03-04 14:35:53 during round ID 19164. The ban is for 7 days and expires on 2022-03-11 14:35:53

State your appeal: Regarding me maxcapping the cult, I agree that I broke Core 2 law, and I accept my sentence, but I didn’t do it intentionally, as the ticket states, but from my misunderstanding with the rules. I WAS planning to maxcap the cult, but because I thought it is always valid to hunt down, just like wizard/xenos/spiders and so on. This wouldn’t have happened if I double-checked the rules before doing this.
I should have clarified it with the admin or checked the rules before doing any damage, and I’m sorry for breaking the round for anyone from cult because of my ignorance.
For my defense: The message in the ticket “I hope I don’t get bwoinked” was my genuine worry in Dchat if what I did was breaking the server rules. Again, at this point majority of the cult was dead (from my maxcap) and nobody said anything regarding my actions, so I carried on, because I thought I didn’t break any rules.
I would’ve tried to Ahelp it once I realised what I did was against the server rules, and try to get myself a fair sentence. Lastly, majority of the station was already depressurized due to atmos sabotage (by cult), alongside mass power loss aboard the station (also by cult), and the shuttle was already called (albeit slowed down by cult magic). Lastly, I too early maxcapped because I got blocked by a juggernaut, and didn’t want to die, because that would mean the maxcap would be in cult’s hands, which would put me in even bigger trouble.
Again, I’m sorry, as I said above, for my actions. It wasn’t my intention to break the server rules, and this whole accident is from my own incompetence, rather than malicious intent.

Ignorance isn’t really an excuse to break rules, especially when you realize it yourself right afterwards. This ban is outside of progression, though, so I’ll lower it to 3 days from the time of the ban.
