To start this post, I would like to share some of my background. My name is Kamaro.
My account was created in Winter 2020. And I personally am a victim of domestic violence.
Around the Summer of 2020, prior to the creation of my account, I met a player named.
We both watched a specific Realm of the Mad God Streamer, and he had told me about the fact that he had gotten arrested. We were able to find his mugshot through Google using only his in-game name, and he shared it with his friends who inevitably shared it as well I had shared it with a few people at the time myself, including a DECA Employee. A few months later, I was streaming on Twitch, this streamer came into my chat with a few of his friends and started chatting in my stream with ill intent. I then put the pictures on my twitch overlay for a few minutes until they left, they were my only viewers at the time. This streamer is a DECA Partner and sent the screenshot to the DECA Partner Discord.
He told them that this was something that I had been doing regularly and that I had called him something which I hadn’t. He had blamed me for another user in my chat having a username that he didn’t like, and accused me of creating the account and being the chatter whilst simultaneously playing the game. He told them that I regularly share his name and that by showing his mugshot, I had put his family and friends at risk, and he accused me of doxxing him as well.
None of the above claims were true, and none of them were substantiated with any evidence. I have the screenshots of the messages sent in the Deca Partner Discord, as they were leaked to me. Toastrz replied saying that he had permabanned my account and that he would ban any new accounts that I would play on. Often, players are unable to view what evidence was against them, but I was, and It was limited to a single screenshot of my twitch overlay, and his words. I had no way to defend myself in this situation, and he could have said anything and it would have been taken at face value, as he did.
I have tried appealing this ban with evidence proving that I am innocent of multiple of these claims. Each time, I have received a cookie-cutter copy-paste response saying that the decision is final. My account has now been banned for over a year, and there’s nothing I can do about it.
I’d prefer if we didn’t name the other player, as I don’t want him getting harassed.
The other player that found the mugshot photo’s with me was never banned and continues to play the game.
If DECA Partners are just able to get whoever banned with only words, this is a dangerous precedent. The level of evidence required for a player report should have to meet a certain standard, no matter who it comes from.
TL;DR: Toastrz/DECA banned me through unsubstantiated false rumors, without any evidence. And even after proving myself innocent through my own evidence VIA support, I’m still unable to get justice.
