Niatic has given a second chance to some players banned from Pokémon GO, and they can get their account back. See if this is your case
When Pokémon GO was launched in Brazil, many gyms were taken over by strong players in a matter of hours, indicating that many people were using illicit techniques, such as Fake GPS, and even bots to capture Pokémon.
Honest players detested, however, the Niantic he started banning cheating players and today you can play more easily. Unfortunately, in the midst of this wave of bans, some players were banned by mistake.
There were also those who used map apps that showed the creatures around. According to a statement from Niantic these players have been forgiven and can return to the game with ease.
Those who have been unjustly banned can fill this form and explaining the reason for the ban was unfair, and waiting for a response from the developer. Those who acted illegally will continue to be banned.
Check the statement made by the CEO of Niantic in full:
We continue to work to ensure the integrity of the game and the health of our servers by blocking unauthorized access and often banning infringing accounts. This includes blocking bots, illegal operations and even user accounts associated with these activities.
Some players may not have realized that some map apps did more than just show the Pokémon around. Each user of these applications can be used as a data collection tool by the creator of the software, and even send such data to him without knowing it.
These applications have a similar effect to a DDoS attack on our servers. As a result, we had to ban some of those accounts that were using map tools, confusing those that were blocked. In this case, a small number of accounts were affected.
As a result of some changes we made to our infrastructure, we were able to unlock this small number of accounts. Map applications that take information from our servers still violate our terms of service and can result in a permanent ban.
Accounts that were created solely to obtain information will not be treated the same. Accounts that used apps or websites to remotely capture Pokémon, fight or place creatures in gyms or get resources on PokéStops will not be unlocked.
Our highest priority is to provide a fair, fun and legitimate experience for all players; therefore, continuing to expel these players aggressively is something that will still happen if they appeal to this type of activity.
John Hanke, CEO of Niantic.
With this attitude, Niantic gave a second chance to players who cheated lightly, and even without knowing it was wrong, after all, no one reads the terms of service, is it?
