The ban appeal looks identical to Glubmans since we were both in a call and tried this together.
As the reason for the ban wasn't very clear I'll give a run down on what happened:
1) Chapter 1, The fuck up
Moat made an update to the server which broke decons very badly, and posted a message saying something along the lines of 'Don't decon items, deconning is broken at the moment' - some people, including me, thought it would be fun to see what happens when you decon items so we tested with high-ends, worns etc, it turns out that deconning Extinct rarity items gave planetary/cosmic decon IC values, this information was quickly spread like wildfire through the servers.
2) Chapter 2, The fuck up begin bad
So after finding out about this exploit, AND AFTER it was shown that if you do the exploit and give the IC you obtain to a staff member you won’t be banned (I would use the discord search function to show this message but I can’t find it, it was somewhere in ‘lounge’ on the MOAT discord) I decided to test if it works, it does work!
3) Chapter 3, Me fucking up
I use the glitch to try and get a mutator of the rarity of the item, so if I decon an Extinct high-end, can I get a high end mutator, cosmic/planetary mutator or even an Extinct mutator (they might have been added with the decon glitch so I thought I would give it a try)? After deconning around 60’ish items of different rarity I couldn’t get anything to drop, just a bunch of IC. I bought a bunch of Detective tokens to try and get mutators since mut drops are pretty rare.
4) Chapter 4, Me also fucking up (a little)
I think it was at this point Moat removed the message listed in Chapter 1,I tried to buy different mutators and trying to get mutators from deconing mutators. That was the entire plan.
The other part of my plan was then to message staff to have my IC removed but I was perm banned for ‘hope it was worth it’.
Now to my discord ban;
I didn’t tell people about the exploit, I told people not to decon Extincts at the risk of getting perm banned, if you ban me for this then technically you could ban Moat and all of the other people in the discord as he/they was the person who announced that you shouldn’t decon items right now, both of us told people to NOT do something, but unlike Moat I actually said what the consequences are, I specifically mentioned Extinct rarity because if you tell people they cannot decon any items (worns included) then players with auto-decon would fear for their lives that they exploited without knowing and would be banned, and if they don’t have auto-decon then would players just have to horde hundreds of worn items in their inventory thinking if they decon just one of them they would be punished - which is pretty ‘dumb’.
I did do the exploit yes, with the plan that I would hand over all my IC to staff/ delete it by buying crates and deconning the items over and over (this is a legit way to delete IC as crates almost never give profits - talk to pretty much any moat.gg player and they will confirm this)
Also just as another point I would like to make, please don’t wipe inventories over this exploit, people (for the most part) only gained IC from this, they didn’t duplicate items or anything. I didn’t use any exploited IC to buy any items from players.
Have you read over our rules?:
Do you regret doing what you did?:
Do you promise not to break any rules after your ban?:
