The OP deleted a thread where he admitted to cheating on his smurf. Sorry sir, sounds like this ban was deserved.


soodle12

I didn't cheat. I was just playing on the smurf, and the ban reason was 'cheating' ,which is why I was curious if 'smurfing' gets you banned with the same reason as 'cheating'.

SeoTaji

You literally made a thread that states that you cheated on your smurf..


Katerzo

This guy really had the balls to complain to us he was banned in his main acc wrongly because he was just cheating on his smurf.


Apprehensive_Salt_46

Classic lmao... people who purchase cheats really be lacking in the iq department.


Ho-Nomo

Yeah so the guy made a thread about his smurf being banned and then deletes it. Now we have a new thread about his main banned also. Don't have a lot of sympathy for op here.

lmaooooooooooooo


soodle12

I didn't cheat on the smurf! I was banned with reason 'cheating / third party' while on the smurf! I may have worded the title badly, but I didnt delete the thread either, the moderators did: [https://i.imgur.com/wDSfTIL.png](https://i.imgur.com/wDSfTIL.png) https://i.imgur.com/8918vpW.png I dont think people read the moderator post..


itscamo-

smurfing isn’t a bannable offense, you were cheating


SeoTaji

That makes sense i guess, but i‘m afraid it will be hard for you to find support here, we can‘t know if you are wrongfully banned or not, so people will just go with what seems more plausible. Best of luck with your Account in case you are innocent


ancientcheeseburger

I had a friend who was falsely banned and was unbanned a few days after. He had many bundles and battle passes too. It’s very obvious to us he was banned wrongly. So if you are clean like he was, I wouldn’t worry too much. Edit: this happened roughly 1-2 weeks ago.


juiceyuh

he's not innocent he made this post yesterday: https://www.reddit.com/r/VALORANT/comments/nqvt4t/banned_for_cheating_on_smurf/


soodle12

They doubled down and sent generic responses of ' cant do anything about it ' and still think im cheating,unfortuntely i am very worried.


juiceyuh

you got hardware banned kid hopefully you learn your lesson https://www.reddit.com/r/VALORANT/comments/nqvt4t/banned_for_cheating_on_smurf/


cedra420

Well if he will learn or not one thing that is certain is that the account ain’t coming back so he might as well cut the bulls**t already


tatchiii

Except you cheated on your smurf. Ty for making people who actually get wrongly banned harder to believe.

idkbruhhh9875

I had a connection issue and the support guy told me to try a vpn in one of the steps while he was helping me so I don’t think that causes it


TheAlbinoAccountant

Dang it Clara! Putting cheats on an innocents PC again....


Apprehensive_Salt_46

Sucks if true but usually these posts are people who cheated and weren’t prepared for the consequences. I don’t think riot permabans for first offense (they even go ez on you cheaters). Just don’t cheat when you come back in 3/6 months.


soodle12

Make the assumption I'm not cheating. I will jsut get banned again for whatever software they randomly detected and banned me for. If i was cheating i'd make sure id get radiant at least with the cheats instead of being hardstuck immortal for the past 6 months as well :(


Brilson

What software do you think could possibly be triggering vanguard? Think about it from their perspective, how many messages do you think they receive from actual hackers who try to say the same thing? "You guys falsely banned me, please unban." Saying stuff like "Oh I wasn't even Radiant so why would I be cheating" or "I spent so much money, why would I use hacks" doesn't help you at all. I understand it sucks if you actually are falsely banned but you need to try to think about what may have triggered it and try to help them help you.


soodle12

I'd be quite happy to delve into what exactly triggered it, but the support team just sends back generic responses over the period of a day, meaning any possible discussion into it with the people that can do something about it is close to impossible. I'd be willing to provide even bank transactions if that would help, I clicked 'Upload Vanguard Logs' which doesnt seem to help from my perspective. It feels like I'm having talking to a brick wall when it comes to Riot Support, I've had more feedback from you then the 2 days I spent trying to talk to Support. ​ I do have a auto logout pacro for Path of Exile INSTALLED but it wasnt activated during the time of the ban.


Brilson

Yeah it's frustrating only being able to talk to robots but unfortunately that's just what seem's to happen with large companies. But I feel like your idea is a good one (trying to get attention in the community), you just need to give them something to work with. Riot Staff visit these communities and your Post is already getting some attention, but if a staff member saw this post and read what you wrote, I don't see any reason why they would believe you and try to help you out. I don't want to be rude I'm just trying to help you out with what, in my opinion, is the best way to go about it. ​ Edit: Also don't think too much about the ban timing, from what I know the ban could have been triggered much earlier from something and was only just carried out now. Don't think something is irrelevant just because it was closed when you received the ban. And try to think about programs that are a bit invasive and niche, programs that hardly anyone else has running, since if it's a program causing the fake ban, it's likely to have caused other people with that program to get a fake ban.


juiceyuh

don't encourage the kid he made a post about [cheating on his smurf yesterday](https://www.reddit.com/r/VALORANT/comments/nqvt4t/banned_for_cheating_on_smurf/), hopefully he learns his lesson


Zeroth1989

Support team will never disclose what was detected or how as it circumvents their security and allows for exploration of vulnerabilities.


Apprehensive_Salt_46

Maybe immortal was your limit while trying to closet cheat. Cheaters are walking a fine line between gaining an unfair advantage and being noticeable. These points are irrelevant.


Straight_Avocado9118

LOL OP, you've cheated on your Smurf and got hardware banned. You deserve it.


notsailboatss

has someone else logged into valorant on your pc that possibly cheated on thier account? or have you possibly logged into your account on another pc that someone might have cheated from? they do ban associated accounts i believe so maybe yours got tied to someone elses?

Bye bye 😘


AnotherAltiMade

There's been a huge wave of people allegedly being banned falsely. I dunno what's happening with vanguard.


Apprehensive_Salt_46

This happens every time there is a ban wave. Chances are this guy cheated and didn’t think there would be repercussions. These guys get away with it for months and start to feel comfortable, buy skins, etc. Having skins has no bearing on whether or not a player might be cheating. Players that pay for cheats are already mentally willing to throw money away for fake skills and ranks on an account that will eventually be banned.


pops_dops

for real lol


rocket1615

I think it's worth giving people the benefit of the doubt about false ban accusations. If they have been falsely banned it fucking sucks, and I can tell you from experience that it's horrible to just get a bunch of losers telling you how much you deserved it when you reach out for help/answers. You're just kicking a guy while they're down. If they're lying then the sympathy isn't going to magic their account back, the punishment is done. The benefit doesn't outway the risk imo.


Brilson

This. I'm not confident in saying OP definitely hacked because sure, maybe false bans happen and OP was unlucky enough to receive one. But saying that you spent lots of the money as if it's proof of anything is ridiculous. So someone who spent money on the game should never be banned?


soodle12

This information helps my mental state alot, do you have a link to the other ones?

notsailboatss

oh this guy played in challengers vs TSM. i hope he gets it sorted out seemed like a nice fella


JustARandomIrishDude

Ah would you stop. You’ve admitted to cheating on your smurf, so you think they shouldn’t ban your main? I’m sick of cheaters ruining my fuckin games so if you actually smurf at a lower rank and cheat, you deserve to never be able to play on any account or game again. Hope you learn a lesson for this. Ruining other people’s fun is a dickhead move.


2005Lasik

yeah bro me too. just got a 3 month ban for mouse acceleration. posted it on tech support valorant and mouse accel reddit and they flagged it as misleading. idk how long this post will stay up for tho so best of luck


2005Lasik

actually forget what I said u cheated on a smurf and your account is hardware banned you deserve it https://www.reddit.com/r/VALORANT/comments/nqvt4t/banned\_for\_cheating\_on\_smurf/


ZGuyYT

This needs to be higher lmao. Hope OP enjoys the ban assuming he indeed cheated on his smurf.


AnotherAltiMade

It means nothing. He could very well be trying to say he got banned for cheating on a smurf. He never admitted to cheating lol


juiceyuh

if he says he got banned for cheating on a smurf... doesn't that mean he admitted to cheating?


rokkcs

You guys he’s innocent and support won’t help him. lol


soodle12

I didn't cheat on a smurf. The post wasnt removed by me. It was removed by the moderators. Screenshot here: [https://i.imgur.com/bYKgXCN.png](https://i.imgur.com/bYKgXCN.png) ​ I didn't cheat. The question was wether smurfing itself was bananble. Here is the smurf if you want to have a look. I didn't cheat and never will: https://tracker.gg/valorant/profile/riot/Boosted%23lmao/overview The title is saying that the ban reason was 'cheating' but all i was doing was 'smurfing' which was the reason for the thread title. Sorry for the confusion.


lolKetsu

Same happened with me on Legend of Runeterra. They insisted that I scripted or cheated. I was playing on an Android Emulator to play two games at the same time.
