  • Can I legally *technically* ban evade?

    EDIT: Rebooting my phone removed the ban. Dude 2 replies below helped more than support.

    Before you scream that it's illegal, please, read the story.
    My device/IP got banned by some dude that I have never heard of. After messaging with support, they told me that they do not have the power to lift the ban and I must buy a new device or wait 590 more days until I can play again. Note : my account is not banned and was not involved in any suspicious stuff.
    So, would I get banned for using certain programs to go around the device/IP ban on my phone?

    that is technically ban evading and since it is the same device id say that that is illegal and considered ban evading.

    wait i thought that if that happened you were supposed to contact support??? have you tried to contact a moderator?
    im 90% sure you would get banned if you did that just because even though its not your ban its still evading a device ban

      I have had the same issue some time ago, i just restarted my device and boom, the ban was lifted..

      You can also try to reboot your router for a different IP address, see if it works.

            sometimes what they say is true

            "every tried turning it off and on again?"

            sounds stupid but sometimes it solves the problem

              ???
              I got autobanned for no reason a few years ago, and after emailing support they managed to unban me. From what I've seen support is basically useless nowadays.

                Don't make me remember the other times I had to deal with support...

                  If the account doesn't belong to you in any way or/and you didn't login to it, you're free to play. Have fun

                    Hey Vale,

                    Though the topic is closed, thought I'd help clear this up a bit more.

                    I don't know if you remember the response I sent you, but I told you to restart your device about a month ago when you first reached out since it's simply a WiFi issue. You were never banned to begin with. Moving forward, please stop spreading false information about what we tell you!

                    Many thanks,
