Any opportunity to inspect the evidence underscoring my ban?

One way is that a friend of yours could show it, eg. via discord-screen sharing option or similar ways.


Another option is that you can simply download the material regarding the evidence on the internet and use the so-called “Replay-Mod” on yourself, afterwards. Open your Browser and type “game.thelotus.tv/yourgameID” in your address bar to download the replay. You can figure out your associated gameID on your banscreen. The gameid is composed of eight signs although large and lower case plus numbers could occur (eg. AKFq86Sf).

Subsequently, click on the field “download replay”.


Please consider that attempting to join on the network with a different account is also considered as ban evasion and will be avenged accordingly!

How do I report a player?
  • Chat offences: If a player behaves inappropriately in the chat, you can create a chat log with /cl . You can then send this to a supporter or moderator, create a report at lts.link/report or submit it in the Discord ticket system.

Note that only messages in public chat are penalised (not via msg/party/clan)!

  • Lobby: If a player conspicuously violates the rules, you can report it in the Teamspeak support, write to a team member in the lobby or report the player with a recording in the HUB at lts.link/report.
  • In-game: Here you can report the player who is not following the rules with /report . It is also possible to report the player in Teamspeak support as long as the round is still running. If the round has already ended, please create a report in the HUB under lts.link/report.

You create a report in the HUB by clicking on "User Report" on the page lts.link/report under the item "Create new ticket". Then enter all the required evidence and click on "+ Create".

How and when do I submit a de-banning application?

Unbanning:

  • If you think you have been unjustly banned, write an unbanning request at lts.link/unban in which you prove your innocence.
  • If you are permanently banned for client mods (your online time < 10 hours), you can also create a ban request. This should be honest and include a detailed apology. Depending on how long ago you were banned, you will either be banned immediately or your ban will be reduced to a total of 30 days.

To apply for unbanning, you have to click on "+ New topic" under lts.link/unban.

Wo kann ich einen Entbannungsantrag für meinen (gebannten) Minecraftaccount erstellen, wenn ich im Forum ebenfalls gebannt bin?

(Dies geht natürlich nur dann, wenn dieser Bann zu Unrecht war.)
