    Default Ip Bans issue

    An ex-friend of mine who was permanently banned for breaking a few rule, one which saying some sexual contents. A few days later, i see him using an alternate account to play, adding on, saying that his ban was injustice and unfair. The thing is, he's ban evading right now and plus he was permanently banned, why can he still play? I thought permanent bans will also revoke their ip address from playing Growtopia. Is this a bug?

    (Ban evaders should get ip banned too, as there won't be any reason for moderators to ban them even if they can come back and do more harm.)
    I, Growonos Giovanna, have a dream.

    ban evading really isn't that hard, widespread videos of methods to do so are circulated on youtube, all you'd need to do is search it up.

    vpn + some virtual account app

    for pc edit some registries in regedit (I think?) some more steps idk I'm not hacker expert

    boom you have evaded device and ip ban!
    ip ban again? vpn !
    they should really try to fix this (idk how they would go about it because its really a problem in most games

    virtual space means different device for the server and vpn means different ip address for the server

    WHICH means when combined, the server thinks you are different person with different device

    ban evading is too easy for people yet very big problem for most games including growtopia if ban system exists

    Based on what I've heard, using a diffrent device or location to play after being banned is definitely ban evading, and ban evading is no doubt illegal. Either way, I'm afraid this isn't exactly the right place to discuss about bans. To do that, you would have to contact the support team via email at http://growtopiagame.com. Good luck, and may the force be with you! .
