Default User 'Fasttrack' is now banned? On what grounds?

Yo!

I would like to know on what grounds my teammate has been banned.

Some are aware that he previously had an account, and has created a new one AFTER deleting his old account.

So what gives? Why is he banned? I can see no legitimate reason to ban him.

URL: Fasttrack @ HWBOT

Explain....?

Obviously, it's for fast tracking his way into the top 3 of his league only 3 days after creating his "new" account

Nope, it was because he supposedly denied being who he was ... as if it is of any importance! He should be able to remain anonymous should he wish to do so.

The account was not made to rise to the top of the ranks as fast as possible. It means nothing anyway.

so your saying people from elite/extreme/apprentice/enthusiast should all be alowed to make new accounts so they can beat on the new rookies and novices? seems unfair to me and that's my argument. i have nothing against making new accounts(im not sure why you would need to), but just bump yourself to the appropriate league, don't cheat new guys with less skill.

There's no control over which league you end up in when you first sign up, is there? I honestly don't know. It will eventually place him into the correct league in which skill plays NO importance. Your 'skill' is based on your cooling, and nothing more.

he could have easily requested a mod to place him into the correct league, theres also a drop down in your account settings(not sure if it works) to pick your league.

bottom line is he created an account and began subbing as a rookie even though his previous account was not of rookie status. to me that's cheating the people in that league.

while i can see the need to defend a friend, i cannot for the life of me see the need to ignore the obvious.

So all that was needed is to put him into the correct league, not an outright ban.

I'll ready the pitchforks.

From what im told, he was contacted in private by mods and still acted as if he was a brand new member with no relation to his previous account. AKA he wasnt trying to be placed into the correct league at all, he was trying to pass himself off as a new member to stay in rookie league.

Never mind, I guess. He's out of it anyway. He can't be bothered with all of this. Life is too short for bunnyextraction.
