I'm not trying to get myself unbanned immediately or anything like that, let me be clear. I only want to at least attempt to get a smaller ban time as I feel the length of my ban was a little extreme for my offense.
So, my gang-mates were being engaged by GPD in Sofia. This was a pretty typical situation, and because I was right down the road, I figured I had to go help them. I came there in my ATS HEMTT, and I thought about yelling "Put your hands up or be shot!" immediately after getting out. I stalled that however, assessing that I had no cover at all. I then slightly increased my distance from Zephyr. After getting into cover, I said "GPD put your hands on your head now or be shot!"
It can be argued that I said it too quiet or something like that, but here's where it gets interesting.
In the report against me you get all 3 of the GPD's videos from their perspective, and after analyzing the evidence along with some of my friends, we noticed that you can actually hear me from the person who was drastically farther than Zephyr, Exotic.
In this video, at about 0:43, right after Exotic says "just shoot him, shoot him," you can faintly hear my voice. If you are wearing headphones, you should definitely be able to hear it.
This shows that even though Exotic was DRASTICALLY farther than Zephyr, he could still make out my voice, even though it doesn't seem like he acknowledged it. This makes me suspect that at some point Zephyr muted me in-game, making him not able to hear me at all no matter how far or close I was talking.
I also wish that Zephyr had attempted to contact me in TeamSpeak about this incident before making a report about me, as I would of gladly compensated him as well as the other officer who was killed for their gear, as this was most definitely an accident.
Also, Merkopotamus, you mentioned in your response to my report that I haven't been trying to clean up my act. This is all I have been trying to do. As far as I know, I have never RDM'd anyone before, and I have been playing absolutely legitimately since I've been unbanned. I have never tried to wrong anyone in the server unjustly, and have tried to conform to the rules as best as I could.
As I said, I'm just trying to lessen my sentence here as this was a complete and utter accident, I guess I must have misenterpreted the distance from Zephyr to me, although you can hear me in Exotic's video.
Given the chance, after my unbanning I would immediately compensate both Zephyr and Exotic for their losses.
Thank you for reading, and I will respect your response no matter how it concludes.
