I was wondering, if in the future I ever get banned from the combine will I ever get to play again? Or an even better question, can I ever use that same name and/or e-mail address again? I have a friend who was banned and he seemed very confused about the whole thing. Like, he didn’t know what he did wrong! Just how strict are you guys? please answer the best you can.
Depends on the circumstances of the ban. Some bans are temporary, some are permanent. In either case, if you are able to return then you must return with your original account (same handle and e-mail address), because creating a new account results in an illegal multi.. which will get you banned a second time. :P
If your banned friend is confused, he should send an e-mail directly to the individual who banned him. Bans are announced on the Sim News, and the news is accessible while logged out, so he should have no trouble finding that information. Else we can look up the name of the person who banned him here and can give him the relevant contact information.
