CollaideAnd no, in many cases when you break lesser laws you in fact do get the punishment before (i.e. parking tickets) and you appeal them afterward. (Just like VAC bans from etf2l, you could get unbanned if you could prove they weren't from tf2)
Even those lesser crimes in question still have recorded evidence that will be sent to you or shown to you if you appeal.
This whole argument is dumb anyway as there is no way to appeal this ban because they are refusing to share information with Jeven. If he appeals blindly they're gonna tell him to fuck off.
CollaideWhat matters more than your personal pride (it's a video game) is the effect of allowing people to cheat because "he aint the type to do it", "he put in work", "he cared about the game", or "b-but he's my friend :("
Jeven is nothing more than a TF2 acquaintance the same way the rest of the community is. I would write the same nerd essays and participate in these discussions leading nowhere if it was one of the people that were being toxic to my team the past seasons. The ban is just iffy with no context.
Also, those arguments are in the same category as saying "The AC team has years of experience" "The AC team doesn't do false bans" "The AC team are perfect".Not to discredit the AC team of course, but this way of thinking is dumb. I'm basing my arguments for Jeven on personal experience and you are basing the arguments for the AC team on their authority. If you think about it both are invalid and it brings me back to "Innocent until PROVEN guilty" and "the burden of proof lies with the accuser, not the accused".
