A ban is thé only correct decision in this situation. Thé "lost key" story is rather creative I must say but there was enough time to think of something.
Nobody of all the present agents from both communities witnessed his move in any way?! What are thé odds.
Yes, I was an active member for this starbust.
Small anekdote. We (my son and me) waited for more than 1,5 hours in 30 degrees at our first target and then a few minutes before thé action this happends.
Result is that my son is disgusted and doesn't want to join anymore for Future events.
There were 2 teams standing guard at the entrance asked the guards if they let anybody in.
The answer was NO!
And if you are a experience player you always make a picture if you do a action as this.
How quickly this discussion goes to something having to do with vanguards and not the player’s actions.
“Working your way into a closed parc, by telling a small lie to a guard about a lost key, is not spoofing....” Seriously? The appropriate name for this is cheating.
Deflect, deflect, deflect.
And yes, the magnitude of the consequences of said cheating DOES come in to play here.
How on earth does a grown up believe it is okay to make up a lie, to illegally enter a park to play a game, playing with someone's job in the process... IF that is what really happened... Regardless wether he speaks the truth or not, both situations are just sad.
Or is the more sadder part that a part of the RES community in Belgium thinks his actions are somehow just or okay? Come on...
He should have known better! And I am disappointed in so many RES players that I've seen or met in real life defending his actions. There were a lot of RES players that night taking up the fight the RIGHT way.. kuddos to them! Too bad this puts a damper on all of Belgian RES...
