You tried to bring up this BS argument to me on discord and I immediately destroyed it... now you're trying to bring it up here too?Hoch wrote: ↑Mon Jul 08, 2019 8:09 pmI guess we have to ban all the players who report bugs now. Whether or not they were testing something, if they found a bug, they were clearly cheating.
If a player stumbles upon an exploit to solo Kirin in 1second and then reports it without having told Godmode, then it's fair game.
if I stumble upon an exploit to solo Kirin in 1 second and then report it without having told Godmode ahead of time, I'm now banned.
You seem to completely ignore the FACT that you were told you could do these things ONLY if you told Godmode about it in the first place. Outside of that scenario, you literally cannot argue against a ban. It's flat-out cheating at that point, and not "white-hat".
Yes, it's still cheating. The fact that you cannot understand this is baffling. The reason you were unbanned was because you agreed to only do this kinda thing IF you told Godmode about it (which you didn't follow)
It is when you're using packet injection to end the synth early, allowed you level up at a much faster rate than usual. Again, dunno how you can't understand that.
As the pic above talks about, you WERE caught cheating. 3 times.
1st: considered OK cause you came forward about it quickly...though I wonder about the exact timeline... You said "started testing and initialized final script". So after the first test you didn't see that it was exploitable? Maybe shoulda brought that up to someone? How long did it take from the time you found out that it WAS exploitable, do the time that you went to talk to Godmode about you "testing and planning to bug report it".
2nd: You obviously know that using packet injection to end a synth early and thus progressing at a much faster rate compared to other players is against the rules. You DIDN'T tell anybody about this. Godmode had to bring it up to you cause he noticed that you leveled crafting quickly, you TRIED to hide the fact that you were cheating, and failed at hiding it. THAT'S when you came forward about it. At this point you were given the chance to test
things SO LONG AS YOU TOLD GODMODE BEFORE HAND
3rd: You were duping Vile Elixirs to test how VIT and Shield Skill worked. You were banned for this. There is literally nothing you can say to argue that you weren't cheating based on your very own definition of what cheating is (which honestly is pretty inaccurate). You didn't tell Godmode you were testing this, you were caught red-handed by a GM.
You continue trying to argue that you being banned wasn't fair (or at one point in our conversation, that Godmode wasn't "innocent"). I don't understand why. It's pretty clear what everyone's opinion on this is.
