    So, I was recently playing on an amazing server with quite a few guards and other prem members. When suddenly, I network disconnected. Normally, this isn't much of a problem to me, I just reconnect and it works fine. But when it disconnects my computer (Laptop using network via wifi), it obviously cuts off my internet. So, I was disconnected from the server. After reconnecting to my network and gaining internet access agein I reopened KAG and discovered that attempting to reconnect to the server returned that I was banned. For no reason. Help? How can I fix this problem? I did nothing on the server to warrent a ban, and all the guards online where friendly and nice to me, likewise in reverse.

    What you are seeing is most likely a ping banned, which only last 5-7 minutes, and can be removed sooner by either and admin unbanning you or the server restarting, as long as an admin or guard did not freeze you and kick you, you did not need to worry about a pro-long or permanent ban. :)

    In such a case it's best to contact the server admin if you are banned only on that particular server.

    There is also a possibility, that you disconnected and server missed that event, so that you looked like AFK player. Others might have kick-voted you, which also results in a ban.

    With the new build, ping bans are now only 2mins. :)

    Finding that I had the same problem, I just wanted say "thank you" for this bit of information- I began playing last night, and was more than a little disappointed when I found myself being "banned" from active servers left and right. :rollseyes:

    Just wondering what would happen if you got frozen and then while frozen got disconnected because of a bad connection or something other than you purposefully leaving?
    Probably a small risk of something like that happening but it would be very annoying if it did just like it would be terrible to get VAC banned in Steam because of an account hack. Couldn't find anybody on the forums complaining of this happening but hey it could still happen.

    I'm sure that has been used as an excuse but that doesn't mean it couldn't happen to someone. Is there no way for a guard to see why someone left a game? In Altitude it says if someone left a game or got disconnected its a very nice feature.

    Apart from that, if you get disconnected when you're frozen you're only banned for a short amount of time.

    And not globally, just on that server. Just like you would get banned for a short amount of time on that server if you're not frozen..

    That was hell of a necro post, and I don't really think even on topic. Closing.
