Automatic Teamkill Kick

Ban message -AUTOTK_edited.jpg

You have been banned for multiple team kills - Even though this may have been accidental.  Despite it saying it is a kick this is a ban - (OWI do not let us customise this message).

OWI (the makers of Squad)  force all licensed servers to perform an auto team kill ban on team killing above a certain number in one game, which we can do nothing about.

We get to choose the ban duration, and ours is set to 10 minutes.  However, Squad does not reset the ban until after a map change, so your teamkill ban will expire after the next map change, as long as 20 minutes has also passed - Sadly, in some cases, that may mean up to a 1-1½ hour wait.
 
As this is not a 'real' ban, it will not affect your players reputation.  AutoTK bans are deleted once spent, unless admins think that the actions were deliberate.

We get to choose the number of TK’s that the ban kicks in for.  It’s a really difficult balance between ignoring accidents by commands with arty, friendly mine hits, etc., versus getting rid of trolls and incompetent players. We don’t advertise our threshold (for obvious reasons) and do change it every so often to throw off trolls who try and work it out. 

If you still do not understand your ban you can raise an enquiry HERE.

These type of bans cannot be appealed as they are temporary. 

"Name Banned" Bans.

Ban message -Name banned_edited.jpg

If you have been banned with the message "NAME BANNED CHANGE BEFORE RETURNING" then your player account has not been banned, but you have joined our servers with a name that is considered unsuitable for a public space.

You may return to to our servers with a more suitable name, and continuing playing.

Appeals for these sort of bans are not accepted.  As it is your name that has been banned not your player account, you are not prohibited from playing on our servers, so normal appeals are not warranted.

Neither do we engage in discussions over our decision process on what is and is not acceptable, we leave that to your maturity and common sense.

If you find that you are unable to select a name that is acceptable to us, then you should find other servers to play on.

Message:  Kicked via communitybanlist.com/banned

The community ban list - https://communitybanlist.com/ is a service that collects bans from multiple game servers and allows server owners to set weights against these bans - Current, expired, nature of ban, length, age etc.

 

J4F will assign our own criteria to players who have been banned on different servers and we may withhold access to our game servers for players with multiple and/or serious bans.

 

The easiest way to remedy this is to visit  https://communitybanlist.com find which servers you have been banned on and appeal the bans directly with the banning organisations.  If you get your bans removed or reduced then there is a good chance that our weighting system will allow you to join J4F servers.

You can appeal directly to us, but this will be more involved and require you to get the banning organisation to provide us with the information regarding your ban(s).  We will treat each case on merit.

To find out what bans you have recorded against you visit https://communitybanlist.com/banned and enter your Steam ID - that will tell you which organisations have banned you and the status of those bans.

If you still do not understand your ban you can raise an enquiry HERE.

If you wish to appeal, then you can appeal your ban HERE.
