    Hey,

    I have been playing social dlc with my friends for achievements. I left the match and got banned immediately. Both my account and console. The friends I was with wern't banned to the best of my knowledge. I can only assume that the Banhammer thought we were XP or skill boosting, or that my connection has unknowingly caused problems.

    Is there any way to check which or appeal against the ban i dont deserve?


    Thanks

    They wouldn't dish out a console ban for a simple exp boost... No way. There was defiantly something else to it, either you did something that you defiantly weren't supposed to, or they flagged your account for something.

    Have you done anything in the past that might cause them to watch your account? Any forms of cheating?

    Types of violation include, but are not limited to, the following example actions:

    • Manipulating network conditions to give yourself an advantage, or to the detriment of the experience for other players.
    • Modifying your Xbox 360 hardware or Halo 3 software in any way.
    • Skill or XP Boosting, deleveling, cheating, habitual quitting or any other type of unsociable and unsportsmanlike behavior.
    • Impersonating a Bungie employee on Xbox LIVE with intent to defraud or cause harm to other players.
    The following things will not result in a visit from the banhammer:

    • Lag (poor or intermittent network performance).
    • Occasional disconnects due to inconsistent network conditions.
    • Playing with the same group of friends over and over using the party system as long as this is not for the purpose of boosting.
    • Losing games over and over again as long as this is not for the purpose of boosting.
    • Winning games over and over again as long as this is not for the purpose of boosting.
    • Being polite, courteous and refraining from hate-speech and racial slurs.

    Tell Microsoft this. Or DoS them. Either way is fine.

    if you truly did nothing wrong then you would be on to M$/XBL support super quick to resolve your issue as it would be unfair and expensive.i think your full of crap and shouldnt cheat if you cant handle the ban.
    the only reason you can get a console ban if you never cheated is if you bought the console 2nd hand from someone who was about to get a ban and your just unlucky...but still you would call M$ as you paid for the account and xbox.<_<

    Thank you for trusting in me :tongue:

    But I kid you not, I did NOTHING to warrant a ban. As i explained, i was playing a social playlist, got save this film achievement, came to lobby and then..... BAN.

    My console was brand new. I do not know how to manipulate networks not that I would if i could.

    I have 1 question for you. Have you called XBL support yet? That is the only way you are going to get your console and account unbanned. If you have not already then that just proves you are not telling us the whole story and must have done something really bad.

    guys get off his case he's a new member with a question. I'm sure something is up, m$ will tell you why you were banned if/when you call. From there, argue.

    Out of the ones that you can get now lol. My mistake for putting that. Check gamerscore to confirm :thumbup:

    Ok I called MS and they just kept giving me a link to an account suspension forum.

    1. The link doesnt work. http://forum.xbox.com/1386/showforum.aspx

    2. I wasn't banned by Microsoft, I was banned by Bungie, so I doubt that the forum will help.

    Called again and they kept repeating that i should contact bungie, but bungie have no communication service over bans. Called again and they were talking about the rep system, and my rep being under 50 % (oops <_<). I thought that if your rep got bad enough, they banned you completely from Xbox Live, not just one game.

    ANOTHER EDIT :biggrin:
    I have been messaging Shiska over at Bungie.net, and he sent me infomation which supposedly shows I was boosting with people who i dont know. I could understand if it was for the one i filled with friends, but from what he sent I was banned for playing in Rumble Pit with people who i didnt know, but they had guests who wernt playing. I can see how that would be interpreted as boosting, but i'm pretty sure they wont overturn the ban.
