Ban Appeal: static Username static SteamID64 76561198095812226 Banned Location Unturned Banned Date Mar 16, 2019 at 3:30 AM Official Reason Organised griefing/stealing Requested Reduction Not a permanent ban. I understand even if I was unaware doesn't make it right, so I can accept any length of ban that wouldn't override getting my base scrapped for inactivity. Explanation Hello, I'd like to appeal my case. First and foremost, I am fairly new to the game. I played Unturned a few times back in 2014 when there was only PEI map. I only recently got interested in trying this game again. With that being said, I admit that I'm guilty of not reading the server rules and I'm guilty of using the stealy wheely automobiley on a unmarked locked vehicle. I'm aware that this appeal is only for me but since my two other friends were banned for the same offense, I will mention their names a lot during this explanation since they were there. My friends (HaxorHayZeus and Webbie) and I have been playing awhile on JPH's PvE Hawaii server. I state this because the person who accused us painted us like we were a group of misfits out to do harm (grief) which is far from the truth. In our short time on the server we have established a small island base west of Waikoloa. We joined this server to complete our Magma achievement which last Friday proved to be unsuccessful. We weren't able to break down the hidden cave entrance that is in Junkyard. If there is a way that you guys can look at the in-game store inventory, you should see that on March 8-9 I bought a lot of military ammo boxes because the video guide we were following stated that you can shoot it down if you don't have a RPG. That was last Friday, so the events of today are as follows. We came back to the server with the idea that maybe to get past the wall it might be triggered by an Unyielding questline. So we returned to do some quests and figure it out. Before we were banned, we had been on the server for roughly six hours. We were there before it restarted and rejoined when it came back. In that time we had spent scrapping to upgrade our ten maple crates into ten metal wardrobes to make more space. We are aware that we can just buy metal scrap from store but what's the fun in that. Once we completed that task, we sent off to do some Unyielding quests. We were near The Akoni doing the starfish quest and ukelele quest. We spent roughly 30 minutes trying to find the starfish. If there is a way you can check the in-game store inventory, I bought a flashlight a few minutes before the ban because using the civilian nightvision was making it really hard to see underwater. Once we found the starfish we made our way to the small island where the ban happened. The play by play: > HaxorHayZeus and I noticed the unmarked locked boat near the shore > I approached it and used the stealy wheely on it, the animation wasn't even finished when the "owner" started shouting at us calling us thieves and a lot of other things > In our shock, HaxorHayZeus and I had got on the boat but once he started shouting bloody murder, we quickly got off the boat left it unlocked and tried to explain that we weren't aware that there was a rule that you can't use the stealy wheely. Though the person was not having any of it and started accusing us of being griefers. > That's when Webbie arrived on the scene. He was still swimming over to us since he had actually gotten on The Akoni ship. That's when the person started saying "She's coming for you". > We were confused, so we just walked away from the person and left the now unlocked unmarked boat alone. Though the person kept telling us stuff via the area chat. Once the admin joined and asked what happened, the person spun a slightly different tale. Yes we had unlocked the boat but like I stated it was unmarked it had no metal sign/placard stating it had an owner. I of course wouldn't unlock a marked vessel. Like I also mentioned, I was unaware of such a rule because I hadn't read the server rules nor that using a stealy wheely on a locked vehicle was wrong. I clarified to the admin that I was unaware of that and even stated that I thought all vehicles spawned locked, why else create a tool to unlock them. The person then stated that we shot at the boat which is a lie. The only shots that were fired were by Webbie who was on The Akoni ship killing zombies for exp while we searched for the starfish. At that point it became clear that this situation was a bit suspicious but I'm not going to humor a conspiracy. I will note that the admin who joined also acknowledge that this person knew a lot about bans and such. Evidence Sadly I have no evidence since everything happened so fast. > Got accused > Admin joined > Person spun their story, a few words were interchanged > Permanently banned Additional Information Thanks for reading at least you get to read our side of the story.
