(at the end of this post there are email exchange between NC account administration team and me.)
In the past few days there were many posts on the forum supporting me, some got locked, while others were deleted. I would like to express my appreciation to those who believed and supported me. For those who doubt me, I understand your feeling, and I wish this post from me would put your doubts away.
I want to emphasize first that I, through the years of playing this game, have never used any outside software to achieve anything illegal in game. Many people who spent time playing with me can attest to this statement. Secondly, I was accused of using third-party software in game. This is the only information NC has provided so far. There is NO further explanation at all, NO time, location, and specific violations are presented. When I asked for the information so I can defend for myself, I was told that the case has been closed and the decision will not be changed. When I asked for people with experience of accounts being banned/suspended, I was told all the information had been provided to them. I was therefore very confused by this double standard from NC.
I know many people may not trust me entirely, but just ask yourself this question, if you are in my position, with 17 million AP and many other valuable items saved through months of hard work, would you take the risk of using 3rd party software or any other illegal means in game? Would you run the risk of your account being banned and all your work over the years gone? There is absolutely no advantages for me to use any illegal means in game because that will undermine all the works I have done. This accusation, not only is it false, defies basic logic.
The above is the basic summary of the current case. At this stage, whether I get my account back is of secondary importance. The most important objective for me now is to defend myself and prove that I, like most of the players, are honest and do not cheat.
This section is devoted to refuting many of the theories regarding my ban.
1. Using hacks to solo instances.
I do not solo instances at all, I ran with legionmates for udas, eso, and besh. Ask any people in my legion and they will attest to this. I understand people might get this idea of me soloing instances because I seldom appear on lfg, the reason I never recruit on lfg is because I always have people to do instances with me in legion.
2. Using radar, and other pvp related hacks.
Any people who remotely know me will know that I never go out of cities and towns except fort defense and Besh. And in Zikel, the chance of encountering an asmo inside fort during siege time is nil so there is no point using radar or any other pvp related hacks. Also, when I go to besh, I always run with group, given the protection that I was getting there is no point using hacks.
3. AP Trading
My career kill is somewhere around 1200, so no I cannot be possibly doing AP trading.
I rarely gather or farm, in the case that I do gather, I gather during dredg waiting time. All the aether I collected are either bought or coming from my other character.
As of right now I cannot think of any more theory regarding my ban. As you see above, none of the current theories make any sense at all. For those who have other theories, please think if it makes any sense in my position to do so.
