Round ID: 21221
Ban Reason: metagrudging
Appeal Reason: it’s a little difficult to put into words how … upsetting this ban is. but per usual I will MAKE SOME TYPE OF EFFORT to try and keep it clear and short.
I’m warden on a ling round. coraline (ling cmo), was mass-birthing teratomas. at first, there were only a couple, so i didn’t do anything (do ur thang tumor baby gurrrrrrrl), but then they started to multiply so i started killing them. after some (maybe 15?) minutes of fighting, I kill the last two teratomas (the last two that i was fighting). after i had killed the teratomas, i was near crit. but, bc i was alone i was able to take the moment to heal myself. but then… BOOM. two teratomas rush in before i was healed, and kill me.
though it’s speculation to say that the two teratomas i just killed immediately respawned so they could kill me, it’s obviously the truth.
“You cannot attack players over events that occured in a previous life. This includes ghost respawns, and new rounds. When you are cloned, you do not know who your killer is unless someone else tells you.” (quotation from rules page on the beestation wiki)
i don’t need to say much here, the teratomas metagamed to kill me.
so what did i do? i GOT EVEN MOTHERFUCKER!! i respawned as a teratoma and aimed to kill every teratoma on the station. i think i killed 3 or 4. i stopped when perishedfraud sent me a message saying something along the lines of “metagrudging as any sentient being is against the rules.” i felt a permaban was imminent, so after me and perished were done talking, i went after two more teratomas and died in a minuscule blaze of glory
a permaban for this is flat-out ignorant, meaningless, and honestly kind of hurtful. i haven’t had a note or ban for 2 months, i didn’t instigate the rule break, and i was playing as a teratoma, the only antag i know of who’s description is to do “whatever the fuck you want.”
i’m not trying to say that i was justified to metagrudge the teratomas as a teratoma, but i wasn’t fully out of line either. it’s difficult for me see the justification for a permanent ban…bc what i did was nowhere near grief nor was it something i instigated. i was retaliating
in the ban reason for this it says i should “Appeal on forums after a while if you care.” if u can’t tell, i didn’t wait. as soon as i was permabanned i wrote this appeal.
why is this ban hurtful? i have almost 900 hours on this server with a clean record that’s been sustained. i’m a goddamn regular! A DAMN STAPLE. and suddenly i’m banned…forever?
i gotta be honest, i like this server (900 hours remember that) and i do NOT want to be permabanned. but … i can’t make an apology for this shit. that’s all
