To preface this I do not actually know if I am banned but what I do know is that I can no longer access a server I had recently been able to. From what I've been able to find from google, these forums, and from other players is that there is no messaging system in the game to let players know. If there is such a thing as independent server maintenance that was happening on the time of this post then obviously I'm wrong on this but I didnt see a server status thread open.

Name under which you were banned: Conscript Orlaf
Which official server(s) are you banned from?: Anvil Gaming Studios Official NA1 - Army Battlefield (I'm only assuming this is so like I stated)
What was happening when you got banned: There was a massive spurgging out in the all chat at the time with other players talking about rules and out-of-game politics that I did not, for the most part, participate in.
Did you break any other rules prior to your ban? (this may include any prior bans, or any other rules you were or were not punished for): I dont think I broke any rules at all as I wasn't participating in the political talk that was going on in the chat. All I believe I did was ask a prodding question to get specifics on what was and what was not allowed under the "no politics" rule taht was stated by an admin and say peanut gallery phrases like "dayum", "^", or "goteem" while dead or playing an instrument and the banter was reaching fever pitch. I guess maybe you could say thats spam but it was maybe a handful of times in chat and certainly not enough that I would classify as spamming.
Time and date when the account was banned: No idea. Maybe between 2am september 6th to 2pm september 7th.
Timezone: Central Standard
Which Administrator banned you? (If you know): I would assume Getty since he was on at the time.
Why should you be unbanned?: Because I can remember the only two times that I actively engaged in the chat spurgfest that was happening. One was when the admin said that "no politics, slurs, or (this part I forget but it was something along the line of offensive speech)". To which I asked "So can we not play the ISIS theme, a known meme song, anymore as we charge? They are a terrorist group and therefore political", to no response and then continued on playing my drums and enjoying the chaos in chat and in the game. The other time was telling someone else whining in all chat about the  political talk to stop complaining about it and it would, likely, stop. If it was a permaban whatever, if it was a tempban it doesnt matter either at this point. I bought the game, thankfully, for only $20 and got my money's worth on the first day and then some, but the entire shitfest that happened that night couldve been completely ignored and the 4-5 people would have eventually left or settled down while the other 140 kept on doing their thing and having fun. But no. The admin had to come in, stir the pot even more, and make it much larger than it was initially. We apparently cant have fun, ask admins questions on what "politics" entails, play some memes, or even say jokes without someone crying to get an admin on to regulate the situation.

If I was wrong on this being a ban then fine but regardless of the status of the supposed ban or server status the actions of the mod that night soured the game for me to such a degree that even after logging on and trying out the naval combat, which was pretty fun in itself, after a single round I couldnt continue after playing it every single day for hours after I had only bought it three days ago. Seriously, 31 hours logged in only 3 days with a full-time job and a family. Had a handful of friends that I was singing this game's praises to in order to get them to join in, but after today that's over.  Fuck you if you banned me and still fuck you if you didnt. Enjoy the power you have on an alpha game's forum while it lasts asshole.
Assuming your steam profile is: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198024302810/recommended/589290/ , you were never banned from the server. As such I am deleting this unban request.

Name under which you were banned: Freddy
Which official server(s) are you banned from? eg Anvil Gaming Studios Official NA1 - Army Battlefield: From all of them, can't seem to join any
What was happening when you got banned: I think I teamkilled a few people and probably used abusive language
Did you break any other rules prior to your ban? (this may include any prior bans, or any other rules you were or were not punished for): That was my first and only ban
Time and date when the account was banned: I honestly don't remember, feels like it happened over a year ago
Timezone: CET
Steam profile link (This must be provided so that administrators can easily identify your in game profile for potential unbanning): https://steamcommunity.com/id/thebutterlord
Which Administrator banned you? (If you know): No idea
Why should you be unbanned?: I believe the initial perma ban might have been a bit too harsh as I hadn't had any prior bans before that, and I didn't receive any warnings. It's been over a year now and I think I have "served my sentence" and I've learned my lesson, and would really like to join the rest of the players in playing the game seeing as I only have 4 hours of game time. I really enjoy the game, and I realize I might have ruined the session or maybe even the day for some players on the day I got banned however I'm sure those players that I TK'd have long forgotten what happened but here I am a year later still not being able to join any games and suffering. Have mercy on this poor bastard and please unban my stupid ass.

Name under which you were banned: Anal Comes Standard x5
Which official server(s) are you banned from? eg Anvil Gaming Studios Official NA3 - Army Battlefield, and seemingly from all servers by IP (except naval battles what)
What was happening when you got banned: Aggressive behaviour regarding clan recruitment in gamechat
Did you break any other rules prior to your ban? (this may include any prior bans, or any other rules you were or were not punished for): First ban, maybe broke the rules about language used, before said ban
Time and date when the account was banned: September 16th sometime after 6pm EST
Timezone: ADT
Steam profile link (This must be provided so that administrators can easily identify your in game profile for potential unbanning): https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198123581448/
Which Administrator banned you? (If you know): Reported by jBob, assumingly banned by Getty, not sure.
Why should you be unbanned? I had discourse with an admin, and now know there are other routes for airing grievances for the game, and to not use gamechat to do so. I will amend my behavior, but if my words aren't convincing, I have obligation to not get banned permanently to the person who purchased this game for me to play with him. Also, serving no previous bans, I don't think I deserve a permanent ban going forward.

You aren't getting unbanned until you put this in a proper format. Edit the original to accurately reflect what happened and I will look into it.

What was happening when you got banned: After the Prussia release, there was a discussion about the "For the Kaiser" bullshit, the devs put in their trailer and in the game and on media etc.. I joined in and said that the reason why it said "For the Kaiser" is simply because the devs were lazy, know nothing about history and clearly did no research whatsoever. The post got deleted without trace and shortly later I noticed that I was banned from all official servers.
Did you break any other rules prior to your ban? (this may include any prior bans, or any other rules you were or were not punished for): Not that I know of
Time and date when the account was banned: Around beginning of July 2018

Which Administrator banned you? (If you know): Probably the Devs?
Why should you be unbanned?: I want to see the new maps they added and maybe play the game I helped to make.

Restating an important rule regarding unbans, there should only be ONE unban post per ban. This does not apply if you had a previous ban, were unbanned and received a new one. For those who haven't received a reply that are longer than a week or so old, you were banned for hacking or this was addressed elsewhere.

Which official server(s) are you banned from? NA1 Army Battlefield
What was happening when you got banned: A lot of memes were being put in chat that were edgy and people started to get kicked, so I joined in.
Did you break any other rules prior to your ban? (this may include any prior bans, or any other rules you were or were not punished for): No prior bans or kicks before tonight

Which Administrator banned you? (If you know):No clue
Why should you be unbanned?: I have played for a long time and have been a good player before tonight. I got excessive with the role play as Ben Shapiro and triggered various players and angered the admin by inciting people to join in with me.  If unbanned, I will refrain from such extreme role play in the future.  If not, thank you for having a fun game with a great community.  I actually really do respect you guys for producing a decent indie title that does not bore me and I look forward to playing.
