Only wanted to teach a lesson shouldn't have been banned: IGP: Al Capone

  1. Votekicks last only 30 minutes. Did you wait at least 30 minutes to make sure your “ban” is not just a votekick?

It has been a week since I was kicked so it’s safe to say that I was banned and when I try to join an server it says Error: Banned
2) What is your in-game player name? Please include it in the subject of this topic as well.

Al Capone
3) What server were you playing on when you got banned? Reminder: We can only help you with bans that took place on servers.
It was on infiltration

  1. Why were you banned? Lying severely decreases your chances of getting unbanned. If your “little brother” got you banned, tell him to make an appeal, or accept responsibility on his behalf.

There was another hacker on the server and whenever I started a votekick, nobody voted even though he severely spawnkilled me and my teammates. I then turned on hacks to give him a taste of his own medicine, but then got votekicked unfairly for rapidly killing him.
5) Why should you be unbanned?
I have now deleted all of my hacks and play sincere like I always did before that hacker joined, next time I see a hacker I will just point him out, try to votekick or leave

  1. When were you banned? Best approximate date and time, please.
    I’m not completely sure but it was around Friday the 22nd at 6pm approx.

If you were votekicked for hacking, you weren’t votekicked unfairly

You were banned on the 23rd for using Aimbot. We don’t accept retaliation as an excuse to cheat, so you were banned fairly. This ban was not a result of a votekick - an admin banned you. I’m not entirely sure how active he is, but I have sent him a PM notifying him of this appeal, and he will get back to you whenever he is around.

Hello Al Capone. While I was not the admin who banned you, I have reason to believe that you are not telling the full truth. Was this really your first time aimbotting? Were you really just doing this to get back at another player who was cheating? I am giving you one chance to be honest. Use it wisely.

I am quite active.
I can contemplate your mind set for turning on hacks, though it is not proper justification for doing so.
If ever you needed an admin we have /admin and an IRC channel.
We have video evidence of you using hacks prior to this encounter so I shall not be reverting your ban.
Eyeless we watch, mouth less we speak.


I understand that it was not a just way to reply to the hacker, and like I said, I have now deleted my hacks. Yes Charles, I was hacking to get back at the other hacker, because I do not find the game as fun when you are hacking. I would not hack without a reason to do it, and now have no chance of hacking because I deleted the hacks. Yes I did play fairly before this hacker came along and only hacked if their was someone like him, but never joined a server with the intent to hack. I now know that I can contact admins if I see a hacker and will do so if you would be kind enough to un-ban me.

If this was your only time hacking, then explain this.

This is a video of you, on the infiltration server, two days prior to your ban. Here is proof.

You were cheating, a full two days before you were banned. Yet, in your appeal, you claim that this was your only time hacking and that you had never done it in the past. However, you have changed your story to say that you had done this every time another hacker came on the server. It doesn’t matter though, because there were no players hacking at the time besides you, and therefore are lying either way. Telling the truth is important, and hopefully you will learn to tell the truth, play honestly, and notify the admins on other servers, but not here. As Jyrome said, you will not be unbanned. Have a nice day.


Like I said, in all honesty, I turn on hacks when their are other hackers. I go on spectator and watch them but if you guys want to be so serious about a friendly game that’s supposed to be fun, go ahead. I just hope that you give other people that are in the same situation as me more of a chance to play Ace of Spades, and that you aren’t so serious about it with others. There are lots of hackers on your servers and I understand that you want to get rid of them, but for next time, might I suggest a 2 strike system, where when you catch the person hacking for a second time after you warned them, then you can permanently ban them, maybe some people like me actually realized their mistake and change back to playing fairly. This is a nice and friendly game that shouldn’t be taken as if it was MLG or something. Please take my ideas into consideration.

Just sayin, this thread reminds me of something unpleasent that happened in the past

I hate cheaters, but I hate cowards more. Those who attempt to shadow the truth or win by treachery deserve none of the amnesty we provide to those who come clean.

I did come clean and admitted to hacking, how does that me a coward in anyway?

You have hacked before, and you aren’t telling the whole truth like Charles has said.

I am telling the whole truth, I have hacked before and admitted to it. But like I said I never join a server with the intent to hack.

Admittedly, you didn’t explicitly state it was the first time you hacked, but you phrased yourself as if it was a first offense. I guess that’s us reading between the lines too much, I apologize for the accusation. On the flip side of the same coin, you didn’t explicitly state you were hacking before either, and framed your argument (2-strike system) as if it were your first offense.

This appeal in general has a few things wrong with it.

  1. You never apologized for hacking on our servers and ruining the experiences of innocent players. In fact, you went out of your way to tell admins how to do their jobs, in a way.

  2. You put us under the impression at first that this was the only time you had ever hacked; however, in fact you have hacked frequently in the past. You claim that you would go back to playing sincere “like I always did before that hacker joined”. That was far from your first time hacking, so therefore you were intentionally misleading us.

  3. You pretty much blamed your actions on the actions of someone else (the “hacker”) instead of taking responsibility for them, like it says you should in the appeal format. Describing how you “gave him a taste of his own medicine” implies that your actions are justified because he was doing it too.

All this rolled together with the fact that there is a video of you hacking on a server that had absolutely ZERO hackers on it (besides yourself, of course) leads to your being permanently banned.

There are many other servers out there for you to play on and enjoy yourself on. However, you must think us idiots to allow you back on the server after you have hacked continuously against a large amount of players, a majority of whom were innocent. Cheating is never okay, and covering things up to make yourself look better isn’t either. You haven’t shown remorse, taken responsibility for your actions, or told us the full truth, and that is why you are staying banned. (Not to mention the admin who banned you has already made up his mind.)
