Respected Admins!
I am an engineer from Pakistan and have a profound knowledge in coding and software.
I joined the TDM war server for COD4 a month back. I played multiplayer cod4 many times and I liked the environment and tough players there. I started to improve on my skills and was not aware of the rules.
I was first banned for using "stfu" to Psyclone Admin. Psyclone is a good player and a nice person but he misjudged the situation and I wrote his name by mistake when I was writing to another person. Anyways, the confusion caused the first ban.
Then I appealed and psyclone lifted the ban because the situation was not clear and it got clear on forum.

After that strange things started. I got banned for using "hack". I appealed to the forum but my post was deleted with the proof which I provided. I was banned for 13 days from Game and 10 days from forum.
When the ban was lifted I again provided proof of me clean playing for the last 4 games I played on 24/7 War server and FFA Server.

The proof is still there.

Today I was supposed to be unbanned and I tried to join the server and a message is displayed saying I am blacklisted.

I live in Pakistan and here genuine games are hard and very expensive to buy. Plus I play on Laptop. I have downloaded the game from online sources and applied a key from a keygenerator. I do not know if my key is matching with someone else but I have proof of my playing but no one is very serious about this stuff.

Due to lack of proper management on the site and also for banning rules, I have suffered for 16+ days. And I am sure there are lots of people out there who have been falsely banned due to a possible DUPLICATE KEY issue.

The server administration team who are responsible for coding and scripting and modding should come up with a genuine way to ban a person based only on reported cheating or after spectated and recorded by someone. The ban should not be automatic from server.

I am sure the ban is automatic and punkbuster might detect false positives but the best way is to spectate and record and reported suspicious hacker.

I am well aware of Wall hacking, Wall Banging, Aimbots, Chameleon Skins, Fullbright Map Hack, DVAR Hacks, AimAssists etc and the different variations that exist in the internet. I am not going to lie because I am a Muslim and our religion teaches us to never lie. I have used cheats and hacks in the past 4 years back but this time, common sense tells me that cheating and hacking is for kids.

A psychological factor involving hacking is this "A person who has faced many difficulties in life and failures have become his personality would find shortcuts to fraud and cheat his way to gain his motives" Basically it means that a looser will hack.

So the main suggestion here is that the admins should be more concerned about people achieving 100+ kills in a 20 minutes round than those with 10+ kills in a single round. (Check my stats on your serve)

If a person cannot achieve 5+ kills per round, common sense is, he is not a hacker possibly.

I have done my efforts to put forward 4 demos of my proof after which I was banned but no one seems to be interested in seeing those demos and lifting my ban and clearing my status in the gaming society.

It is a shame for me and I have made a whole lot of deal of this thing in the past when I challenged all the admins of h4x to prove me guilty of hacking. Because I wanted a clean gaming career and now I am blacklisted.

Just because I am from Pakistan or I am a Muslim or I am person with strong and clear conscience and I come up to the forum to provide proofs and discuss these matter cannot be the reason to blacklist me.

I am astonished I saw players with 100+ kills and they come back again to the server. No matter how well the PC setup is, no one can see people behind walls and I saw many "professional" players killing and seeing me behind walls like they know where I am.

I am a mature person I am 29 years old and saying all this is just to let you all know so that you can improve the banning rules on your server so that your server can rise and shine to the top in the gaming community.

I am so depressed right now. I am leaving h4x. and COD4. Let this message be a reminder to all of you admins in the future that due to your loose rules and no check and balance you have taken happiness from a the life of a stressed person.

Psyclone Bro, I always admire you. Keep it up.

Please take some time out and watch my demos for reference. Thank you.

(Also PM me how to unjoin the website forum. I hate COD4 and everything now. This server has filled hatred in me and took happiness from me>)

Hi Naeemullah, I appreciate your concerns and your kind words for me. You do realize that we admins do not get paid for monitoring and administering the servers, we volunteer our work. You have some valid concerns but at the same time we can't spend all our own money for the pleasure of others, although we do ;)

You yourself have said that you do not pay for your own game. I personally try to donate more than the cost of the actual game to keep our servers running every month. That should tell you something right there. If you ever check the donations, we admins are the ones that actually donate to keep the server running. We are not offering a paid service, in other words if you want to play and have fun on our servers, you don't have to pay. So therefore it is unsettling to me when players complain that we are not doing our jobs.

If we ban a player for hacking and he shares the same CD key or IP as you, unfortunately you get banned as well, the solution to this of course is to purchase your own CD key, that would solve everything! So you see it isn't our fault this happens. WE do however try not to permanent ban players that share their CD keys but then we get complaints that we let hacker back in. You see what a conundrum that causes?

We do not rely solely on our software (which cost money) to monitor our servers although it helps. You are right about scores, if I see a player with a high score I am going to look at that player, what you don't see is, we look up that players stats and look for anything out of the ordinary. One thing a good admin has to do is distinguish a very good player from a player that is cheating. A lot of these player that others complain about have literally thousands and thousands of hours playing, they are good because they have a lot of experience :)

You are right about duplicate keys, there are keys that have over a 1000 players using same key. We do our best to make sure innocent players don't get banned as well. Once again, the solution to this is to buy your own key.

I respect your knowledge and professionalism, I am sorry you feel the way you do and feel you were wronged by us admins, but I promise we do the best we can do, some of us have jobs and lives outside of this game. I am sure if we actually offered a paid service, things would be better, but that is not the case, this is just a game for people to entertain themselves and have fun with ;)

There are plenty of servers to play on, I know ours is the best ;) but you can't blame us for you not wanting to buy your own game.

Thanks for the feedback.

P.S. We do use Facebook and this forum for correspondence, the admins have the right to put in personal information or not. I personally I have got harassed and stalked through Facebook from angry people. You really can't expect everyone to put all their personal information out there, especially when most of the crazy angry people don't.
