unfair pickup ban

Post by blondie »

epsy banned me a week for "can't stop the sacasm"

I was not being the least bit sarcastic. Epsy simply chose to interpret complimentary comments to players as being sarcastic. Whatever personal vendetta epsy has against me, I ask that the other pickup admins reverse this ban, as it is completely unjust and unfair.

I tried all available methods of clarifying the issue directly with epsy, but he is adamant in his version of the events and is unwilling to reverse the ban. He is unable to provide any sound reasoning for the ban, and it is a complete abuse of power. Here is a transcript of our conversation: http://pastebin.com/RKri2u4p.

I can confirm that I was not offended by Concord's words. He is a very polite player who is always trying to help newer players in the community and often offers helpful advice to everyone in need. People rarely even compliment others as much as Concord does, so I think we could all learn something from this kind-hearted man.

History shows that all pickup bans are unfair.

In all seriousness I'm not sure what was up with Concord today. He acted a bit strange and seemed very sarcastic, but I wasn't really bothered much by it. I do realize epsy was probably tired of having to deal with him because I guess some people were making a big deal out of it on irc? I wasn't paying much attention honestly.
tl;dr Concord probably didn't deserve a whole week ban (no ban in fact if things were left at whatever happened in-server), but definitely shouldn't be disrespectful with the admins and such.

Oh and thanks to epsy for trying to stand up for me, or against conc's sarcastic attitude in general :D

I wasn't being sarcastic.

I know I don't get to choose the tone in which my text chat is read, but by the same token epsy doesn't get to ban me because of his interpretation of my tone. He's putting words in my mouth, and punishing me for what he thinks, not what I say.

When I complimented nanu for beating me in a 1v1, epsy says, "well, 1v1 win isn't that impressive. You were being sarcastic."

epsy has not provided any evidence to support his ban. guilty until proven innocent. I appreciate the support in trying to repair this injustice, sinewav, nanu and gazelle.

He's an 2014 AvE All-Star though. I have no shame losing to an All-Star, insa.

in other news, espy still hasn't provided any evidence of wrongdoing.

Just so everyone is clear, pick-up is and has always been a private server system and part of hashpickup.net. The site clearly states what to do in case of an unfair pickup ban:
hashpickup.net wrote:I think I was wrongly banned, what should I do?
Speak to a staffer in #armagetron.pickup.ops.
It even has a helpful Feedback link for just this situation.
