I have sent out a PM to all team leaders/server admins with the protocol for the trial:
All Team Leaders should discuss their decision with their respective team and only one response per team is needed.Vogue is accused of disobeying her Ladle 84 ban. Given the evidence provided, is Vogue guilty of breaking a Ladle rule or an offense against the tournament and community? If so, how many Ladles should they be banned for? (0 - 12)

Basically, none of us realized that Capone, who started this game as Shock, did not own the account [email protected] Based on the screenshots that I am going to provide you from the recording, that you can verify for yourself how Wild West was duped into this.
At the beginning of the game, Capone came in and logged in as [email protected]
At about 2120 on the recording, Capone changed his name to Vogue and logged in as [email protected]
Then Liz pointed out that everyone should look at her ping. She had to use an Aussie VPN to play.
Cadillac, one of the two Wild West Team Leaders then proceeded to kick Liz from the team and subbed in someone else to play.
I think that this clearly shows what Liz did to fool the Wild West team into allowing her to play. It also shows what Wild West did in response once they knew what was going on.
Obviously, it's pretty impossible to completely ban somebody from the Ladle, as we all already knew. But, I would imagine that it makes it a lot less fun to play through a VPN. From now on we should all be watching pings of our mates to see if they are abnormally high, and for other signs of impostering. Of course, if the imposter is determined enough, they may continue to flaunt their ability to beat the rules.A receipt will be sent to you after a response is given and will be posted anonymously on the trial topic.kyle wrote:Basically what compguy mentioned via screenshots is consistent with the logs on liv. The IP address used appears to be us based, but that is not always accurate.
If I am missing anything feel free to correct me. The voting will end a week from today (August 14th).
