Heads up guys this may sound like a rant.
Why not spend $$ on a decent game?
The company running it, Hirez is evil.
I played GA for almost a year - ign - TheLover
Gave $102 to Hirez in the process (game+3 90day boosters), Yes at the time I felt it was worth it.
After nearly 1000 hours, collected nearly every epic item, one day I tried to log in and it read 'Your account has been banned'.
Their responce to my enquiry was

Your account was banned for violations of the terms of service related to cheating. Our anti-cheat systems detected the use of a third-party program on your account.
After additional review of the evidence, we stand by the ban. We appreciate your understanding in this matter.

Basically they accused me of cheating and banned me.
Well I assert that I dont cheat, wether you believe that is not the point. Naturally my responce to that was

I am 100% legit and swear by it. I would like to see your so called ' evidence ' that i cheat, also please state what cheat that you have identified me using, and when i used it. this is a ridiculous accusation that i cheat.
Hirez seems to have ignored this, they wont even show me their evidence of my violation of their terms of service, how else can the accused party try to defend his case if he doesn't know exactly what he's accused of right?
My 2nd attempt to request evidence has been closed within a day of my posting.
Also posted on their official forums under the official account issues section to see their evidence, but those posts have been removed. According to their forum rules all account issues can be posted there except those regarding bans, bans have to be resolved privately using their ticket system.
I admit to have used hacks in other games, offline,online,mmo and have had my fair share of bans too. One time for sticking an eraser on my keyboard on cabal and went to sleep. But all those bans I received were fair, the game companies even sent screenshots of evidence etc.
Hirez seems to think their anti cheat is so perfect it can never be wrong.
I guess theres always a first time to being banned for being a legit player.
FIY I actually took the time to read their ONLINE TERMS OF SERVICE AND USE AGREEMENT due to this ban.
