Disgusting. Needs reversing, No TOS broken and players being banned because of salty players who want the game to themselves. Shambolic decision. S
Incredible. Picking up keys and using them gets you hammered. Weird.
Its one thing if that Beul80 got hammered for that action, but these players are key players on multiple anomalies and just by standers.
Banning players with a proven track record is a harsh action to take.
I know 2 of them personally and would be surprised if they did something against the TOS.
Reverse the ban or show proof.
This game is rewarding snitching like in dictatorial countries.
my lesson learned: do not invest too much in the game, you might be snitched and banned without appeal or proof.
so much spoofers and mule-accounts are not banned and here Niantic plays hard? This is insane.
I cannot believe this is true.
I know @GoodGirlxXx and @4NG3LDU5T already for a long time. They are close friends.
Both dedicated RES players who love the game, the community, doing banners. They are trusted honest agents.
I don’t know @Migualiteit personally but I believe his story with all the evidence.
I hope their accounts are soon reestablished!
Well, it's just niantic being niantic...
Please reconsider the ban of @GoodGirlxXx and @4NG3LDU5T I know those players in real life. They would never ever cheat in any kind of way possible. They are honest old school players, and known in both communities. They are getting banned? For what reason? Please review asap since this is just not right!
Only beul80 was reported,..
Even i was confused when i heard that angeldust en moonlight had a ban,... i know them as legit players as well..
I cannot believe that @GoodGirlxXx and @4NG3LDU5T are banned. And this for no reason. Really sad that this is possible. After investigate this you will see that they did nothing wrong. Completely nothing. Please fix this. They don’t deserve this.
Please reverse the ban on @GoodgirlxXx and @4NG3LDU5T they are honest players and are always fun when you encounter them on their many bannering excursions. Players who do that won't risk their accounts. Waaaay too many hours of walking. In the past they were never afraid to talk up when they perceived injustice. Was it on res or enl part. It did not matter. And they were open for both sides to get proof in and get solutions. They would indeed be a great loss for the community on both sides...
@Migualiteit I don't know personally and I'm a bit divided ont that part:
- one side: he participated on a xf wedding starburst for us so he has shown he has a sense of community.
- other side: he defended in comms a player who cheated
I can't believe what happened here. Those players are the most honest and sweet people I know. Had some banners together and an anomalie. They are die hard and honest players. Please give them there freedom back!
Hearing the story from only one side, if anyone from the reporters is willing to explain please contact me on telegram @j00rtje, I find it clumsy at most. Yes, they shouldn't have linked to a most likely non legitimately flipped portal, but that fact by itself is not illegal.
So the question is, was the linking foul play? Maybe so, maybe not, but doubtful for a perma ban in my opinion. So please niantic, reconsider and lift the ban.
Nia, ook ik zou het zeer tof vinden als jullie deze beslissing willen herzien.
Het lijkt me wel duidelijk na al die berichten hier van zowel enlightened als resistance dat deze spelers daadwerkelijk thuis horen in het spel en een ban onterecht is.
Please unban Angel and Goodgirl! they are honest players with a heart of gold,
they have already meant a lot to both factions in their own way.
you made a complete fool of yourself with this ban...
hopefully such outrageous actions don't happen again soon
I was watching the linkstar on the Intel map when suddenly a wild, filty spoofer appeared. I don't understand why these other 3 got banned for his stupid action. Really ducks that you may or may not get banned for being somewhat close to where a ducking spoofer appears. I hope niantic takes a good look and takes the right decision here.
Thanks for the lively discussion on this thread. Based on the content of the discussion, I will be closing it for future comments. I appreciate your understanding.
I want to follow up on this to clarify a couple of things:
1) We cannot take certain types of inquiries via social media platforms (Twitter, Telegram, here on the forum, etc) - they have to go through the appropriate channels to be processed. Ban appeals are one of those things - they need to go through the ban appeal process. That is why this thread was closed. (I've been informed that the Agents have submitted their appeals. If that is not the case, please request that they do!)
2) I want to stop the idea that the banning of any Agent is a result of mass-reporting. That is not what happened in this specific case (it is my understanding that this doesn't happen in any case) and I don't want other Agents being falsely accused of doing something that made this happen. Please do not blame other Agents.
