One night I finally talked my brother into playing PokeMMO, and we got all the way to Mt.Moon and decided to call it a night. I played a couple matches of Dota with him, and then I went back to log on PokeMMO before bed. It was then that I found out I was banned. I knew I never cheated, but the reason listed was "Prohibited 3rd Party Programs". I thought to myself, how can I be banned for cheating when I wasn't even online? I'd understand if I was shiny hunting or something but I was literally just working my way through Mt. Moon when I logged off.. The only third party thing I could think of was "Floating Counter App" which I had read about in a PokeMMO staff member's post here: I realized that's he's staff, and that's no real reason to be banned, so I made a unban request, waited weeks before I could get a single response, and then the person clearly didn't read a single thing that I wrote. He completely ignored my plea of innocence and said that I instead admitted to using third party programs, and that my remorse changed nothing. All I wanted was for someone to read what I wrote, and tell me why I was banned. I accepted mistakes could happen and waited weeks just to be heard, and then was just ignored and given a copy pasted response. Since then, I have been unable to respond to the ticket, create a new ticket of any type. Effectively I have been ignored and sentenced with no way to respond. I mean, Look at my first ticket VS his only reply. My Ticket, His only response, and for transparency here's Everything, my first post to my last. I created a ticket and repeated numerous times that I've only ever used my account on my tablet, and that I've never automated any programs or used any third party software EXCEPT for "floating app counter" which I learned about on a PokeMMO forums staff post (https://forums.pokemmo.eu/index.php?/topic/113018-tool-shiny-counter-for-android/). It doesn't do anything but overlay a button over the game and when I press it the counter goes up. It's not hacking or cheating anything, but I wanted to know for sure if that was why I was banned, and not by some mistake. So I admitted that I used it, and the person responding to the ticket said that I admitted to cheating and remorse changes nothing?? The only Third Party Program I have ever used is "Floating App Counter" which is the only reason I brought it up. And if he didn't just ignore my entire post, then that means that is the third party program that I was banned for. I reiterate, in the past 2-3 years I've only ever played pokemmo on my tablet, and if you could just check that, that would show you I am not a cheater. I have had my account since 2015, I have never cheated ever I wouldn't even know how to do that. All I do is log on while im watching netflix, shiny hunt, and log off and I dont even do it that often, I was just starting to get back into the game and the community then I receive this ban, then I practically beg for an answer why, I wait weeks, and then the guy doesn't even take the time to read my ticket and takes my plea of innocence as a admittance of guilt. I waited weeks to get a response trying to understand why my account was banned, what I could have possibly done having only EVER logged in on a android tablet, and the response I got after weeks was that I admitted to using third party software and even though I'm remorseful it doesn't change anything??? They clearly didn't read a single thing that I wrote over those weeks, that, or an APP that was suggested to me by a STAFF MEMBER is the reason I was banned. (TechnoVortex's Post I linked) I ONLY admitted to using an app called Floating Counter App which is just an overlay button to count how many encounters I have done... its how I keep track of my shiny hunting and it's only effective if I press it manually with my finger inbetween every encounter.... so it makes no sense to be banned for using it. It's basically like having the notes app overlaying ontop of the pokemmo app and counting by typing in that, but instead it's just a button... and I learned about it from the PokeMMO staff themselves!!!! SHINY COUNTER TRACKER, POSTED BY POKEMMO STAFF ON THE FORUMS! The full context I just feel like I'm being railroaded. I never cheated, I got banned. Being a long time member and donator, I accepted that it could possibly be a mistake and waited weeks for a response after proclaiming my innocence and even bringing a good argument to my defense (having only ever played on an android tablet), to instead be clearly ignored.. do your players mean absolutely nothing to you guys?
I just wanted to catch rare pokemon... As did everyone else... And you profited off that same feeling in others.. And you had your staff close and lock threads for years.
It's wrong.. I was wronged. I can't even be sure I'm playing a fair game anymore and I genuinly advertised and contributed it thinking you were a community of active devs who cared, but the opposite is what I've seen.
Wow. Just learned about the shiny scandal back in 2015... I bought donator on my account back in 2015 in an attempt to help me catch shinies, but after hundreds of people telling me the system was rigged I moved to [Edited by staff as mentioning other Pokemon MMOs is against the rules]. I wanted to come back and try pokemmo anew and it turns out all those people were right and I just wasted my money on lies in 2015 and I just did it again when I don't even know if you guys learned your lesson and changed the system. If your still punishing players for looking like cheaters and penalizing people who specifically who shiny hunt and look like bitters by changing the static chance to something per individual, then your still just robbing people blindly.
Additionally, Why is the only thread I needed to create an account to see the same one where you all admit to your wrongdoings after being caught and then closing the thread before answering what you were gonna change about your system built on years of lies? You bet if Nintendo knew exactly what you did your little loophole wouldn't be enough to stop the shutdown. You promised a service you were actively lying about. The evidence is so pronounced, yet all you do is say sorry and post emoticons and no answers... I want an apology for the wrongdoings from 2015. The thousands of hours and dollars people wasted because of a lie that helped line your pockets.
Can you do that for me? Can you show us things have changed and admit to the falsehoods instead of simply dodging them? What happened to no bullshit... Just games?
Own up. No bullshit. Just games. Confront it and make it right.
