    Default Banned :(

    Yell at me if I shouldn't post this here but several weeks ago I tried to get into the PCG TF2 server only to find I had been thwacked by the righteous hammer of banning. I made a little comment on the steam group asking if there was anyway I could see why I got banned since I'm not a hacker, nor a racist biggot, and I don't have that foul of a mouth usually. Since that didn't work I'll try it here, anyway I can get unbanned? Steam ID is Avenger2099, display name is Bonin.

    VAC banned or Server Ban, if it is the former there is nothing to do but buy new copies of all your VAC enabled games...

    Server banned, if I was VAC banned I would probably... I dunno kill myself or something. God that would be horrible.

    I've seen Buck and co. kick and ban the odd player, but they usually have a very good reason (and that reason is usually immediately apparent to everyone else on the server too). So, chances are, you deserved the ban. That's the most likely scenario, based on how I've seen the PCG server operate.

    I imagine it'll be at the discretion of the likes of Buck (who I've seen on the server most often) or whichever admin it was that banned you to decide whether or not to allow you back on.

    Ultimately, it's PCG's server, and they can run it any manner they see fit.

    See the thing is, I wasn't online at the time of the ban, unless a friend logged on as me which is highly unlikely. My guess was that they were doing some mass banning and I just happened to get lumped in on accident.

    Do you like the use the word "faggot"? I've seen the ban hammer swiftly deployed for such an offense.

    Only when describing my dinner. Apparently it's the northern word for meatballs.
