Let me start off a few years ago lets say 4 roughly i was playing GMOD trouble in terrorist town.

All was good till i randomly died and was kicked from the round.....why? because i shot someone and killed them (RDM) and it was in the logs....you might say well that's deserved and it would be if i actually did it.

I never fired off a shot .....i tried to argue my case to the moderator but memory serves correctly i was threatened with a ban...i have never played since kinda ruined the game for me :S

I was punished in League for being a good player a few seasons back Riot capped me at like 5 points a win from literally winning to much despite my w/l ratio getting bigger and bigger with way more wins than losses which now would push you thorugh the ranks faster but back then they made it hard getting to diamond to the point I lost interest until the next season. It was there stupid way of preventing paying people for elo boosting.

I had been temporarily banned from Nexon games due to knowing "too much" about their system. They believed I was an employee that was leading information that would have been a violation of an NDA that employees signed.

Funny story - after it all got cleared up, I was hired at Nexon America for a few months before I moved to England.

I guess Killzone Sahdow Fall for me. Rarely, i got kicked out from the multiplayer because of "being a passive player". Whenever that happened, it's only because i paused the for too long, about 1-2 minutes. The only way to prevent this is to be in the safe zone and move a bit. That's it.

Other than that, nothing else comes to my minds. I never been banned.

I bought a PS4 just for FF15. What a terrible waste of money. One of the worst FFs to date.

Banned from BF4 for shooting the owner (In the game, duh).

And the one that actually stings on multiple levels, back when Aion was new, I got permabanned for playing too much. Apparently farming for 12+ hours a day during holiday was botting, even if it wasn't, and NC support wasn't open to reviewing logs to see if I actually did anything wrong, just settled on "Nope, u has to be bottin" cuz no way u play that much.".

Oh yeah, also got banned off Warcraft, shartly after it first released, for taming a creature that should not be tameable on Hunter. Well, thatnks Blizz, so you are saying that you made a mistake, therefore I have to pay for it. In restrospect, it's funny and I don't really care tho.

I called the QA staff of a game useless..
Truth be told though, they kind of were..
players found more obvious bugs than they did..

I never got banned in on an online mmo but back in the days of Xbox 360 I kept getting kicked from groups in multiple different games. I was really good at a couple fps and just messed with people rather than playing so in the community people passed around my name and every time I would join a game I would get kicked. Whoops?

That's the mischief I like to see. No harm no foul, really.
And really it's like half their fault for not realizing someone would do this and planning accordingly


Personally, I have received like 1 warning in League but it never amounted to much.
I learned early on that if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all.

I have broken (kind of, the key is missing, but it still works just fine) my keyboard in a fit of rage.
