    Weird temp bans...anyone else getting these?

    I'm getting weird temp bans the last few days. I get them often, but they only last a few minutes at most, which is much shorter than tbans usually are for me. (edit: eg, in the time it took me to post this, the ban cleared)

    I also am quite sure I'm not joining games too fast, as I've been running tower with an untwinked zon in NM, and it takes me a while to do each game.

    Anyone else noticing any weird behavior like this on the server lately?

    I haven't been getting them. Oh wait, I switched to SP...


    Could be that the warden or whatever distributes those bans is random.

    It's an attempt to prevent botting. If you join games too fast/often, you'll often wind up with these, same as doing runs of the same thing over and over. They just wanna make sure it isnt a bot doing these things.

    At least that is what I have heard.

    Yes I know what temp bans are usually for...like I said, I'm sure I'm spending well more than the 5 mins per game that you need to to avoid tbans. And when it has happened before, it's never cleared itself up 2 mins later, it always takes between 5 to 30 mins for a "regular" tban to clear for me, if I've been muling too aggressively or something.
