Tickets / Investigations:

  • Admin Observed via Server Logs

Took advantage of an exploit during Double XP weekend without advising any members of staff on the issue. Also advised multiple other members of the community of said exploit. This resulted in gaining a magnitude of experience and build points that have dwarfed the current player base regarding those that did not take advantage of these illicit means. When presented with the current punishment options that are laid out by the rules of the server:

General Rule #3:

  • Do not abuse in game glitches or mechanics in any way. (I.E. Dragging someone into a car to fit more than what could usually fit into the car, using the sit emote to glitch past walls or barriers, etc) If you find a bug, report it in discord. - This server is in live development, bugs will happen. Things will break. We appreciate your patience as we make the server better than ever. Exploitation will not be tolerated and will result in a perm ban from our server.

The staff team resigned to not permabanning any of the members who took advantage of the exploit but gave them two options.

  1. Take EXP Disfavor (50% reduction in EXP gained) until you next level up.
  2. Have your level reduced to 20 and continue from there.

Fieldmedic made his initial choice but then decided to become defensive against the reasoning for such actions and decided that venting his frustrations was the more appropriate. As such, the Discipline Team was called forth, and Fieldmedic was given a hearing. During the hearing, he comes in under the pretense that the other admins and I had already made up our mind and that we should “get it over with” and ban him. However, that was not the case as, in all hearings, the choice for punishment is never final until all information is on the table. Fieldmedic was given his chance to speak and was subsequently given three options in the end.

  1. Take EXP Disfavor (50% reduction in EXP gained) until you next level up.
  2. Have your level reduced to 20 and continue from there.
  3. Permaban

Fieldmedic, of his own accord, has chosen option 2.

Investigative Team
Haven, Hito, Kat, Lux, Bowie

Outcome
Reduction to Level 20

Addition Administrative Outcome
If Fieldmedic chooses such to continue or rekindle his venting/ranting on the decision made, his choice of reverting to Level 20 will be revoked, and a permanent ban will thus take its place. He will also be on permban probation for 6 months.
