[Unban Appeal] Ethan

Username: Ethan
SteamID: STEAM_0:1:244774784
DiscordID: TrafficBlocker#0001
Which server did you get banned on: VA1
Which Staff Member banned you: LiamBird723
What was the reason for your ban: Purp RDM 4th
How long was the ban: 168 days

Explain what happened/lead up to the ban: I threw a incendiary grenade right at the beginning of the pre-round towards, the water on minecraft city. Addi purposefully walked into the fire then reported me after the round had finished. I profusely apologized as I was just trying to test out the new rolls of timing and elasticity on my grenade. He did not accept my apology and chose to try (and succeed) to get me banned approximately 10 rounds later.
Why do believe you should be unbanned?: Addi was the only one to go into the fire as it was far from spawn,  this was the only time I had even come close to "rdm", Addi as far as I know didnt even die and Addi has frequently expressed he does not like me and earlier said he wanted to "get rid of me". Screenshot included down below also indicates players walked into the fire multiple seconds AFTER it had been thrown which indicates it was purposeful.
Confirmed Witnesses: none - i wouldve clipped it but he didnt even die

I'll just go through some of your points one by one:

"I threw a incendiary grenade right at the beginning of the pre-round towards, the water on minecraft city." If the fire had been in the water I wouldn't have been hurt by it.

"Addi purposefully walked into the fire then reported me after the round had finished." I was bhopping around and ended up passing through flames, there's nothing intentional about that.

"I profusely apologized as I was just trying to test out the new rolls of timing and elasticity on my grenade." The first time you did it you responded to the report with a joke, and then did it again a few rounds later after being told not to, so at this point it doesn't matter that you apologized for the second one.

"He did not accept my apology and chose to try (and succeed) to get me banned approximately 10 rounds later." Yes, it takes time to get bans finalized.

"Addi was the only one to go into the fire as it was far from spawn" "Screenshot included down below also indicates players walked into the fire multiple seconds AFTER it had been thrown which indicates it was purposeful." Like I said, when you're bhopping and someone throws fire everywhere you're bound to pass through it. That's why you're not supposed to throw grenades randomly as an innocent or during preparing.

"Addi has frequently expressed he does not like me" I didn't know who you were until this week and my opinion on you was more or less neutral until 2 days ago when you sent me a video on discord of a woman starting to undress, when you started PMing me in game semi-ghosty things to do while I was alive and you were dead, and when I started seeing how often you called people "retard". The first and only time I actually expressed that I didn't like you was this afternoon when I said you were annoying me.

" and earlier said he wanted to "get rid of me"" Actually, what I said was "Why are you trying so hard to get yourself removed?" as a response to you intentionally trying to bother me. That's not an indication that I wanted you gone, just me saying that your behavior was unacceptable.

 

Anyway, it doesn't matter that you didn't actually kill anyone with the grenades because you were told after the first time you threw a grenade randomly during preparing that you can't do that but you did it again anyway, and that shows your intent to cause trouble.

Ban Upheld With Modifications

It is apparent after speaking with multiple parties that you were asked to stop, and you did damage players (two of whom reported you) with your preround shenanigans. This does fall under our Purposeful RDM definitions.

However through internal discussion we have determined our Purposeful RDM ban times need adjustment. Previously our structure was as follows:

12 hours -> 1 day -> 1 week -> 3 months -> 3 months

We are revising it to be the following:

12 hours -> 1 day -> 1 week -> 1 month -> 3 months

This means your ban time will be reduced from the original 6 months (for two offences) since the ban, to the new time of 2 months (minus any time that has passed).

In the future, I ask you put in effort to keep the server peaceful and laid back, I don't believe those two to be mutually exclusive. As I am sure you were well aware you have a bit of a ban history, and any further RDM bans would be 3 months so please be careful and courteous with other players. Due to previous circumstances I want to make it clear that any form of alt evasion will not be tolerated. All said, I hope you can return conflict free when the ban time has elapsed.
