    BLC Restriction & Auto-bans Update
    [​IMG]
    Ghost Client Update

    What is this?

    As many of you are aware, there are hacked clients out there that allow people to hack with very acute adjustments to their game to give them just enough advantage without being blatantly obvious. That is why the Brawl Staff Team is glad to announce a new addition to our protocol when it comes to approaching these situations...... BLC Restriction. We can now restrict a player to only be able to join Brawl's servers if they are using the Badlion Client. This is not only for single players, but can also be used on entire servers as well for competitive events in the future.

    How and when does this happen?
    Here is a quick rundown; When a player has a large amount of suspicion, recordings and allegations against them, the staff team will review it all and come to a decision on whether or not they believe the player is using a ghost client. If and when it is decided that they are using or may be using a ghost client, the staff will enact this protocol and restrict that player's main account to BLC and all other alternate/linked accounts would be permanently banned for extra measure. This restriction will last for as short as 6 months but it could be longer based on the situation.

    Why make this change?
    We know that it is tricky to figure out if someone is using a ghost client with no doubt, they are made to be very hard to track. Implementing this new rule allows for us to have a better way to handle these sticky situations and try to avoid those few false permanent bans that may inevitably happen.

    FAQ
    You can create an appeal on the forums and list the account you wish to play on. Any alt account will also have to use BLC though.

    No, if a player is found to be bypassing a BLC restriction it will be treated as a permanent ban across all their accounts.

    Badlion Client is an all in one Minecraft launcher with built in client anticheat, FPS improvements, mods, and much more. While there are other clients, this client has a built in anticheat which makes it nearly impossible to cheat while using it.

    Continuous Auto-Bans Update
    There are a few players that receive numerous auto-bans within a very short time without any of them being false or successfully appealed. It is not right if someone is able to continuously play our network illegitimately while staff are not present and not be punished. Due to this the staff team has decided that once a player has 15+ auto-bans within a 1 month time frame, they will be restricted to BLC. This restriction will last for at least 1 month.

    if you get autobanned 15 times in a month you're not legit lol. in my 3 years of consistently playing here the worst case i've seen in a month is like 6 for one player, so anything above 10 should be a good indicator that something isn't right (other than the anticheat of course). of course i still advocate the systematic approach, but having multiple autobans in the same month in any size is already sus, let alone 15.

    Yeah seriously it should be 5. 15 is NEVER going to happen. Max i had was 4 within 1 hour and then no more for 2 months or so. Maybe you can make it so no matter how many bans within 1 hour it always counts as 1. Also downloading and playing on blc isnt too bad since its just for a month.

    currently on CTF, there is a common theme with necros getting autod for criticals.

    The main reason why is most likely critting someone out while they're withered. Bot detects it as crits. It has happened to people a lot like

    Why are you partnering with a client-owned by pedophiles? And forcing users to play on a client that is owned by pedophiles?

    They only force you them if you force them to initially ban you but they are so generous to give you a 2nd chance.
