This bot ban thing...... While evidence may exist that several people broke these “rules,” you have to take a step back and consider this which is “Why were there so many people doing this?” If players were never warned in the past, that’s essentially InnoGames indirectly saying that it’s “ok” to do such practices. Banning someone without a warning is a harsh punishment for something that several people were supposedly doing. That’s equivalent to you going to the grocery store and picking a grape from the bag to taste it. You’ve been doing it for years (hypothetically) and consider it ok. Now picture you’re home getting ready for bed only the have the cops bust down your door and arrest you for stealing grapes. You get sentenced to life in prison because of your actions. Pretty harsh isn’t it? InnoGames is governing this game like a damn 3rd world country right now. Just give the guilty parties a warning and then ban them if it happens a second time. You’re going to lose more players (including myself) than it’s worth by sticking to this ban for future worlds. All players banned, regardless of tribe, should be reinstated immediately and given a warning. If you respond to me, please do so in this thread as I want it to be public for everyone to read.
