December 2015 Player Bans
Yesterday was probably the most ridiculous and infuriating day I’ve ever had with Wartune. The details of everything that happened would be a bit exhausting to write out, but in short, I was unfairly given a 5 day punishment ban from the game, because they thought I used a game exploit that I didn’t use. I’m no longer banned, but I missed registering and playing in Titan War because of this, as they didn’t start lifting bans on R2 players until very late night. Needless to say, I won’t have Titan War videos for this month.
Really this is not about missing Titan War. One month won’t kill me, and that itself isn’t enough to upset me. It’s that this is a special level of stupidity and incompetence on the game’s part. Despite efforts to get in touch with someone that could give me some real answers, I haven’t gotten any info on what criteria they used to determine who was to be banned. This is what their “official” communication through the forum has said so far:
They claim the bans were not conducted by any particular publisher, which is a roundabout way of saying, “you should point your blame at the developers from 7Road, not us”. I think that it really doesn’t matter who screwed up; people are upset and many see this as the last straw.
As for myself, I’m still the midst of finding every way I can give them hell about this issue. While I was banned I didn’t feel like playing, and even though I have my toon back now, I’m not feeling enthusiastic about things as I usually am. To make things clear, I will continue to blog and vlog about Wartune, since DolyGames has built a following through the game and I want to respect that. I have long held a love/hate relationship with Wartune, as I’ve met a lot of wonderful people through the game and do have a lot of fun, but it’s a monthly, if not weekly and daily, battle with poor programming and slow response times from developers. Considering what awful companies run Wartune, I do not want it to continue to be the number one game the DolyGames promotes. Cosmos and I have talked on many occasions about wanting to spread out more and cover different games. So as DolyGames grows and Wartune no longer is the majority of what we put out, I hope that you guys continue to enjoy and support the time and effort we put into making fun, quality content about many games.
