"I was banned for doing like... one thing against the rules and I got banned. Why so harsh?"
Because there are rules for a reason. They protect the gameplay of the server, and if you got banned, honestly you deserved it. Sit out your ban, and move on. ZSU Gaming and its admins have zero tolerance for breaking the very simple rules that exist on our server.
"I was banned - how can I get unbanned?"
We welcome appeals where you believe that you have been unjustly banned. However, all our bans require evidence to be presented in one form or another, and we have many tools/metrics developed over the years we have hosted Squad to make sure we have evidence of rulebreaking. If you believe there is the potential for an issue to be misconstrued, please raise a ticket on our Discord - discord.gg/zsu - however please note that a "I didn't do it" will be greeted with evidence of you doing what you were said to be doing. This may increase your ban time.
"I want to report an admin for admin abuse - how can I do this?"
You may raise a ticket on our Discord - discord.gg/zsu - however please note that a "I didn't do it" or "this admin has it out for me" will be greeted with evidence of you doing what you were said to be doing. This may increase your ban time. If you are unhappy with our response, you may refer your complaint to OWI directly.
"I have a ban from ages ago on your server. Can I have it removed?"
We do not lift bans solely for the purpose of cleaning up your SCBL record, which is the only reason you would want a ban removed. You were banned for a reason. Learn from your mistakes. We use legacy bans to determine player risk within the game, and we will not remove this. Do not ask.
