Unappealable Offenses

If you were banned by our Enforcement Team for the following offenses your account will not be unbanned under any circumstances:

  1. Game exploits (meshing)

What to Expect

Typically, we are able to respond within several business days but this can vary depending on our current ticket volume. Do not submit multiple tickets as this will be considered spamming the ticket system. 

The enforcement team will only review one ban appeal for any ban incident. Make sure to have all the relevant information you need when submitting your ticket.
