    Why Permanent Suspensions are Completely Justified,

    First off, Ban Appeals all bans can be placed under review, if a person feels that a permanent suspension is unjustified, they can email support.

    Heya! We do understand it can get really frustrating when you get banned and we are definitely open to re-investigating and re-evaluating your punishment provided that we find enough proof through our investigations.

    To ease everyone's mind allow me to clarify some points mentioned:
    1. If you believe that you were banned unjustly or you want submit a ban appeal, you can report such incidents to us and we'll look into it carefully and then handle it. Here is how to submit a ban appeal:
    https://support.ubi.com/en-AU/Faqs/0...count-sanction

    "In the event you genuinely feel the ban is not justified, please LET US KNOW - we will be happy to investigate further."

    2. If you believe that a certain moderator is misbehaving feel free to report the moderator to us together with details and if there is a proof include that as well. We will look investigate and act on it if necessary.


    Also, thanks everyone for sharing your thoughts regarding this concern. I shall mention your insights about this to the team and see if this is something that we can take into consideration.


    Secondly, perma bans prevent illegally obtained or duped items from resurfacing, when you perma ban an account you permanently remove those illegally earned gems, through autofarming, or those pwings gotten by duping. By doing this the team can hinder the progress of illegal activities like selling growtopia items for real money.

    1) Mods/Ubisoft doesn’t punish innocent people. Stop saying it, if it happens by accident we always correct it. At no point is it beneficial for us to ban innocent players who have done nothing wrong.
    2) I recognize a lot of the ban situations you have mentioned. A lot of what you players are being told is far from the truth. There’s a lot more that goes into these permanent bans.
    3) Permanent bans are very acceptable for a variety of cases. Autofarming, phishing, casino owners and so forth are all generally involved in the selling of items for money (which is also illegal). Why would we want to give these people a second chance to redeem themselves? We need to ensure these things aren’t occurring or items can’t be transferred to other accounts in the future. Keep in mind this is a small fraction of things we permaban for.
    Finally, The system just works, Funny right? No but seriously the perma ban system works since it is PERMANENT, a permanent ban legitimately stops a hacker, bot, duper, mod impersonator, or NSFW content spreader dead in their tracks, and YES a perma ban, even for the first time is justified for these offenses, SERIOUSLY!

You can't fact check anything. All you can do is take a persons word on a story then expect other people to take your word without any way to prove anything.

    A fear of the game dying is not a good reason to let people break rules and avoid appropriate actions taken against them. The game surviving in reality is based on players spending money. I would assume strongly that Ubisoft was more interested in how many players were spending money over how many players were actually playing when they purchased Growtopia.

    If your that worried about the game dying you should go spend money. When the income dries up the game will die.


    If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

    Edit:Let this thread die this topic need to die due to its irrelevance, seriously any person in their right mind knows that permanent suspend are always justified...

    No, it does not work. My device/IP got banned by someone that I don't even know and support said that they won't be lifting the ban. So is it really justified and fair to me, who did nothing wrong?

      Dude, they( As in Support )already responded to this, they are not lifting the ban since it’s a legitimate threat, if the ip ban does not affect your account, then just play using cell data or other alternatives, it’s also possible you are lying and have committed atrocities, I AM NOT ACCUSING YOU OF ANYTHING, either way, if you account itself is not banned you should be fine, or just request a new ip from your ISP, my isp auto changes all ip’s periodically. Secondly your ban is not a perma ban, it’s a 554 or 2 year ban M9 your agrument is INVALID.

      No I’m not exaggerating, let me explain by not banning the rule breaker the WHOLE community of growtopia is affected meaning that simply put, you are collateral damage.

        First of all, i think you misunderstood my point.

        SUSPENSIONS ARE IMPORTANT AND MUST BE INLUDED AS PART OF THE GAME ELSE IT WILL CREATE CHAOS.

        2ndly,
        Does super broadcasting a NSFW content 2 word phrase as a joke deserve a permanent ban?
        Does boosting in 1 tournament deserve a permanent ban?
        Does some scamming/ drop game deserve a permanent ban? (Sometimes given suspensions)
        Does autoclicking/ auto farming for the very first time deserve a permanent ban? (or even wrongly accused)
        Does sharing account with your friend or cousin with intentions of promoting the game do so much harm deserve a permanent ban?
        Does hosting a roullete game which does not involve betting deserve a permanent ban?
        Does involving in a drama through SBs deserve a permanent ban?
        Does pretending to be a mod AS A JOKE deserve a permanent ban?
        Is it fair to be suspended for accusation of ban evading because ur sibling was banned and you get suspended because of using same wifi?
        Is it fair when your friends whose a hacker, passes you some illegal duped items and you dont even know what's going on. Then you get suspended for being accuses of helping a hacker?

        Not to mention, some of the reasons for their bans could even be falsely accused. They COULD be innocent.

        These acts are definietly wrong, which i do not disagree but the extent to which they are punished through a suspension is TOO HARSH. This acts deserve a punishment such as a super long ban such as 360/730 for them to reflect on what wrong they did and hopefully will turn over a new leaf. However, if they repeat their offence, they will be suspended. As for exploiting, IAP frauding, casino hosting, they deserve perma bans with no 2nd chances

        I hope you will have different perspective of things now.

          Well were annihilating our bad players... and were also annihilating the total amount... and were also supporting how games die.

          And now how do we fix this game? Well lets see we now come to the conclusion of complaining about changing between perma ban to a 1 or 2 year ban which is practically permaban which basically means that someone probably wont get back into the game in the end. And this protest of changing it to a long term ban instead of permaban would theoretically be of benefit but really..? Such big changes...
          O how little

            1 - 2 year ban is already a lot as you know. Some people played the game for years and spent hours on it. They might be willing to even come back after 1-2 years

              Does super broadcasting a NSFW content 2 word phrase as a joke deserve a permanent ban?
              If done repeatedly yes, we all know that 10 year olds plays this game, there is a limit. NSFW stuff must be enforced including racial slurs etc.
              Does boosting in 1 tournament deserve a permanent ban?
              If done repeatedly yes, people were caught boosting on multiple occasions this banned. MOBAs games also experience such problem and growtopia isn't the only one dishing out such punishments.
              Does some scamming/ drop game deserve a permanent ban? (Sometimes given suspensions)
              Yes, if done repeatedly. We have been warned time and time again. Everywhere you go you see the no scamming rules.
              Does autoclicking/ auto farming for the very first time deserve a permanent ban? (or even wrongly accused)
              wrongly accused can be appealed through support. No autofarming is currently being enforced across all bfgs, one using must know the risk.
              Does sharing account with your friend or cousin with intentions of promoting the game do so much harm deserve a permanent ban?
              for this one I haven't experienced it or seen it yet so idk.
              Does hosting a roullete game which does not involve betting deserve a permanent ban?
              Depends, if you purposely make it look like a casino set up, u can be legally banned for attempt to waste mods time.
              Does involving in a drama through SBs deserve a permanent ban?
              Yes, as I say again, kids are playing.if you create drama be prepared to get ur megaphone taken away / duct taped and be banned, commiting multiple times will result in a perma ban
              Does pretending to be a mod AS A JOKE deserve a permanent ban?
              Yes, impersonating will result in a ban to perma banned. We all know why it's dangerous.
              Ban is mostly for warning, perma banned is for those that goes too far to collect personal information, hacking etc.

              Is it fair to be suspended for accusation of ban evading because ur sibling was banned and you get suspended because of using same wifi?
              Yes, it's the best way to keep out alts, but you can log in to your account on a different wifi which will prove your innocence. So you let your sibling do illegal stuff while on the same wifi, both are bad imo. I always reinforce what guest do with my wifi when they come over.

              Is it fair when your friends whose a hacker, passes you some illegal duped items and you dont even know what's going on. Then you get suspended for being accuses of helping a hacker?
              Ban appeal is there for a reason. And there are logs to check.

              Not to mention, some of the reasons for their bans could even be falsely accused. They COULD be innocent.
              Ban appeal exist.

              These acts are definietly wrong, which i do not disagree but the extent to which they are punished through a suspension is TOO HARSH. This acts deserve a punishment such as a super long ban such as 360/730 for them to reflect on what wrong they did and hopefully will turn over a new leaf. However, if they repeat their offence, they will be suspended. As for exploiting, IAP frauding, casino hosting, they deserve perma bans with no 2nd chances
              You think autofarmer deserve a 2nd chance but not casino hosters?

              I was a casino hoster, I have been banned for 60 days. I was given a 2nd chance. I greatly thank Ubisoft for where I am rn.

              Currently all I can see is your super biased perspective.


              I hope you will have different perspective of things now.

                  No thanks. I’d rather have newbies who abide by the rules than Long term players who don’t.

                    I hope you will have different perspective of things now.
                    Ok first of all, please read recreates counter to this, he clearly explains why they are permanent suspensions, Also what I don’t think you realize is how serious of an offense autofarming is, by autofarming you are lowering the value of gems and wls due to the fact that these gems were earned illegitimately, the reason autofarmer accounts even for the first time, are perma banned is so that those illegally earned gems don’t hurt the economy.

                    Also hosting a drop game/scamming for the first time gives a 60-365 day ban depending on the type of scam, repeated offenses will result in perma bans.

                    SB,ing NSFW even once, is a perma ban to prevent others from doing it, FYI, Broadcasting about fake gem sites also falls into this category.

                    All perma bans are 100% justified, any “accidental” bans will be appealed. FYI, people who get permanently suspended commuted some atrocities and should be permanently banned.

                    Hey but wait? You say people can change right? Some people can change not everyone, and most likely not the majority. However everyone can change through outside influence, a simple ban will not change a person behavior, lecturing and social interactions will actually change a persons behavior, a solitary ban will not do this, meaning that even after a long ban the same person will most likely continue the same illegal behaviors.

                      My permanent suspension was not justified. Support said I was selling accounts. I have no memory of selling accounts or doing anything related to that. I asked support to look further into it and show some evidence of their accusation. They just closed my case with a, "We won't be replying to anymore emails about it."

                              They hold back evidence so that other people cannot circumvent their current detection systems.
