    Admin who Banned you: Panda

    Reason of Ban: Metagaming

    Your Explanation of the Situation:

    So, I own up to what I did.
    Here's what happened though. We were on a number of maps including ttt_whitehouse, ttt_freddy/roy the ship (forgot name), ttt_summermansion. Me and NotNobody were being really friendly to each other and I don't know who started it but we started to just gift each other T weapons. Sometimes we were both inno and it was AFTER I got it from a dead T or likewise for him but most of it was either me being T or him being T. There was one instance in which we were both Ts but that is acceptable. It never dramatically changed the round (I don't remember it affecting the rounds much if any at all). There was one instance on Summer Mansion when Panda and I were Traitors together. I gave NotNobody a knife at the start of the round but it didn't affect the round. Panda killed him and then I killed Panda. Panda told me in Discord that that is technically Meta and asked both NotNobody and I to stop which we did immediately after being told. It was dropped then and NotNobody went afk and (was kicked) and I kept playing for a while. Fast Forward a couple hours and I was told not even by Panda that I was banned for metagame for 1 month.

    Why you should be unbanned:

    So I own up to what I was doing was WRONG but I do want to say it in my eyes isn't/wasn't even that bad. It didn't affect the rounds from my POV, I was steadily fixing a relationship with a fellow longtime respected and we weren't like telling each other who the T's were or anything.

    I have been playing Arcadia TTT since the end quarter of 2016 and although I have left for extended breaks numerous times, I have always loved it here. I know that my rule following has been a bit bumpy here but I feel like I have matured heaps since I started here. However, I have always been a respectable and respected regular of the server and never have I been banned legitimately. This ban breaks this streak that lasted nearly 2 years. I feel terribly sorry and upset and disappointed that this happened and I ask for your forgiveness.

    Disclaimer: Writing now, will fix in the morning when I’m more awake.
    Another Disclaimer: Grammar and writing will probably be wrong and I’m not to familiar with the forums so there will be mistakes.

    It was on summermansion when started to notice that you and NotNobody were metagaming.

    It could’ve effected the round quite heavily if I hadn’t actually headshotted NotNobody, because if he had killed me or even had gotten away from me, he would’ve known who the traitors were and could’ve easily just won the round for the innocents.

    You did stop and I thank you for that.

    The reason I didn’t tell you was because the server was pretty full at the time and I forgot to tell you afterwards. The reason it took so long for the ban to be put in place is because at first I personally didn’t think it was ban worthy but after talking it over with the other admins we decided that it was worthy of a ban.

    Whilst it didn’t do too much harm at the time, it had a lot of potential to do harm especially during that round on summermansion as it had many different outcomes especially since I didn’t know that he had the knife until after I had killed him and when you had confessed to giving him the knife where I told you that it was metagaming.

    Whilst what you did was wrong, I do believe that you should be able to play on the server again.

    Will give more evidence if required.

    ACCEPTED / CLOSED

    It's as clear as day that you metagamed. Usually in a lot of cases we would have simply denied the appeal. But since you are super-sincerely apologetic, owned up to your mistakes, have drastically improved your behavior recently, promised to not do it again, etc. we have come to the decision to unban you now.

    However, this has gone towards a Respected Strike as compromise. Be warned that this is your second respected strike, out of the standard three. Another strike and your respected will be taken.

    Thank you for appealing and being patient. See you on the server.
