VIVA has its own Discord server! Do join if you haven't already! : )
First things first...
If you've been banned from our servers, chances are you've done something we really don't like.
The following things are not tolerated:
- Abusive behaviour (e.g. randomly flaming folks)
- Throwing "hacusations" around
- Racism, sexism, homophobia, anti-Semitism, etc. (everybody is welcome here)
- Using hacks or software to gain an unfair advantage (this kinda goes without saying)
- Posting links to illegal software, warez websites or pornographic content
We're not overly sensitive and some of us get called noobs a lot, but there's a line which, once crossed, means you're no longer welcome and we'll use the ban hammer.
Appealing a ban...
To appeal your ban you'll need to:
- Provide your exact soldier name used on our servers
- Acknowledge what you did
- Understand why it was wrong
- Convince us it won't happen again
If you can't do all of these things then the chances are you're staying banned.
As part of your ban appeal we'll probably ask you some questions or challenge the things you've said.
How you reply to these questions and challenges will have a big impact on whether we lift your ban.
We may use third party tools like BF4DB to assess your statistics if the appeal relates to a ban placed for cheating.
If deemed necessary, we may also require you to stream your gameplay or provide video recordings of your gameplay for review.
We will usually let you know the outcome of your ban appeal within 48 hours. We're not in a rush though, so if it takes longer then you'll just have to be patient.
NB: If you've never posted on our forums before then your first post will need to be approved before it is visible. Do not post repeat threads as these will just be deleted.
What we won't hear ban appeals for...
If you are on a PBBans or GGC banlist, or have been permanently banned by FairFight, we will not take any steps to let you on our servers.
You must appeal your ban with PBBans, GGC, or EA (e.g. for FairFight bans).
How not to appeal a ban...
Step 1: Appeal your ban with a half arsed story...Quote
i writing this topic to apologize for my cousin who play on my account without my acceptation, when he was at my home
Half-year ago i wanted to play and i saw message : ,,ban : cancer remark'' i was really shocked because i'm not hater or someone like this.
i want to apologize for this situation, and ask for unban. and sorry for my english, but i'm not really good at this language
Step 2: Be a complete dick on our servers...Quote
