    Nice work Saatana, great evidence, I think the entire video seems highly suspicious, he rarely spots and yet seems to know the whereabouts of any incoming enemy, tracks them through trees/cover etc. Knew there were enemies remaining in spawn after his team had moved on, including chasing one down, only to stop short of where the enemy was waiting for him, 40mm the building etc.

    I have upgraded this to a permanent ban but invite other admin to offer their opinion.

    I like the video and as moz said it is great evidence, I thought that he was a clean guy...guess I was wrong...other than me being better Chriss than saatana the video proves that he was indeed cheating and a permaban is fair with no other excuses that maybe Geo can say

    Upon request I took another slower look at the video - putting it in 0.5x speed, the middle bits that at first seemed as though he knew where the enemy were, they were actually spotted if only very briefly, either by him, or someone else, including the part around the shipping containers. Though, that still doesn't explain the beginning and ending, which weren't spotted, yet look highly wall-like. If nearb himself joins the forum and can provide a satisfactory explanation i am willing to revisit this but if he's not willing to vouch for himself i see no reason to unban.

    Hello, I am nearb I want to talk about the subject of my ban, it is true that it seems that I use wallhack but it is not like that since I am in its servers always eh played the same way, it is but I take years to play battlefield and it is not Presumed but over time I was improving and if it is true that it seems that I use hack but it is not like that, I just want you to know that I am honest and I am good to play if I remove the ban I am going to be very grateful and if it is ok its decicion and I will accept it, thank you very much and apologize for the misunderstanding.
    To and to Saatana tell him that I am Argentine and I speak Spanish and if I did not answer in the chat during the game it is because I deactivate the chat to be able to see better

    Hi nearb, okay, thanks, appreciate your participation - while the evidence does look highly unusual in places, i'm willing to concede it may have been intuition or simply being very thorough/cautious. I'll unban you, though we will keep a close eye in the future, enjoy :)

    Unban him just like that? Without providing evidence that he is actually not cheating? Well.....

    There was doubt behind the scenes as to whether the evidence was clear enough & several well known players spoke to me on his behalf. I was hasty in my first review of the evidence - the video is long and my time is short. When asked to look further into it, i decided it was better to air on the side of caution.

    I asked nearb to participate to both determine whether he was earnest and caution him. Parts of the video do indeed look wall-like, as i said in my statement, but in the interest of being as fair as possible, it's not 100% certain. You would want me to review it with an equally open mind if it were you on the other end of the ban, yes?

    At the end of the day, due to being able to create unlimited accounts, the threat of being banned and losing your rank is actually a better deterrent than being banned.

    This is not to say that i tolerate hacking, but rather, i must be fair, I've been wrong before, it's easy to make an error, and if i am wrong now, he will be caught out in the future.
