PSA: Dupe Bans Have Begun

Recommended Posts

   Hello, as you all know Minecart26 was banned for talking endlessly about the dupe he created yesterday evening. No one was really surprised by this because he did start the issue, and was being very open about it. However this forecasted future events. A few hours after Minecart26 was banned I was alone on the server with one other player, and I needed some obsidian for a build project. So as everyone does I duped it, but as I was finishing the last boxes of the obsidian, I was suddenly banned by the console. This leads me to conclude an anti dupe console plugin has been installed into the servers console, but the .jar is still vanilla. From the way I was banned, I assume that if this console bot sees you leave and join too fast or too many times in set period of time, it automatically bans you. Now here is the bad part: Viper is not accepting appeals for dupe bans.

    My advice to players who are not banned: stop duping IMMEDITELY or you will suffer the consequence's as I did. I would also advise destroying any current stashes because I have a feeling in game enforcement may come very soon. Furthermore, I also have a feeling that a program might soon be developed by admins to search for and destroy and chests full of duped items in the world. Finally, for now I would definitely keep any large quantity of duped items out of your inventory and your end chest, because it is possible for admins to look at the player.dat files and see who has duped quantities of Items, and who does not. Furthermore, be sure to destroy any large duped build at your base made out of OP items like beacons and ore blocks. I would like to think that builds made from non op items are most likely safe, even if said Items are duped, however I would not know.

    Their is little that can be done for me, but please please please, heed my word and don't let this happen to yourself.

         P.S: Bans apply to both your IP and your account, so do not think that duping on a alt will save you.

Hey Nv Doom I was banned as well, And I figure every other player related to us has been banned as well, I was wondering if we banned players should move to a diffrent server, any recommendations would be much appreciated.

Right now I'm trying to go the path of being unbanned, but at the moment my hopes are slim. My appeal has been denied so my only hope is to play on a alt once my ip changes. I have heard that they do not ban your alt unless you mess up again.

Also Idk what the process is for second appeals, they might let me make another one and actually look at it in a month or some other large amount of time. Our highest hope might be when the map resets, then they may actually let us be unbanned, but don't count on it.

Change your profile location to banned to spread the word.

Hmmm Ted was saying you guys might get a second chance if you filed an appeal so thats not good to hear :(

Our only choices at this point:

1. Change our IPs and join on alts, don't dupe, and hope to not be banned.

2. File a second appeal later

3. Do something good for the forums or other servers to redeem ourselves (idk if that would work)

4. Wait for a map reset

From my experience, Maybe Or might, Is a slanted way of saying probably not. 

 

Our hopes are not high :(

Still, at least we are not in this situation alone, since we are both banned. Its too bad though because the end floor really cant  be built now.

Glad to see the admins are doing something about the people that are duping.

if this triggers you, let me tell you.

 

HOW MANY TIMES HAS IT BEEN STATED THAT DUPING IS BANNABLE?

All people that played here have duped, there are just people that stopped, and destroyed their duped items after it was declared duping is bannable.

Green it has been bannable from day one. Just not enforced until today. And as for those who have stopped and destroyed existing items...... they don't really exist, even if they claim they do.

false. The admins did not really know about the dupe until it was widespread, and then made it illegal, it was legal before that. Don't question my knowledge, you weren't even on the server when the dupe first came around.

I can read the date of the rule board, duping has been illegal since that post was made.

Green this was made in 2013, you of all people should  know that if you duped at any time it was still illegal, even if it was not widespread.

While it is ಥ_ಥ to see 2 of our favorite players go, I think that it was justified and will send a message to all players. Players will now know that rules are being enforced, and therefore all duping will cease to happen. I just wish the admins made examples of different people. I would say that anyone who may have a dupe stash should destroy it, and let the server go back to legitimate gathering.

Well to be fair one of the people they hose had a alt so at least that's good, but poor sweet little ol Solomon, he's out of commission.

    • Never expected to see you here again
    • Those were fun times weren't they?
    • For those who may or may not remember me, "Hello!" I'm Jack, I started playing on Vipers lair out of interest; following 2b2t's popularization of 2016/17, under the name TheHolyJack. I guess you could say that I was curious about anarchy servers and tried my luck and finding one that had a somewhat friendly and active player base... incomes vipers lair: from the first moments I joined I met a player, this players name was Alpha (I think) and he was pretty damn well nice to me, he introduced me to a community of people who were friendly enough to take me on as building apprentices (Nauga) and other activities such as having strange poem battles haha. After a few months of playing ( or more? ) I started to really enjoy these people's company. Fast-forward some time and I came to realise that these people were genuinely happy to see me on the server; something I've yet to come close to ever since. To put it lightly I stopped playing Minecraft after I had to do my exams (Some of you may remember how stressed I was haha; thank you for the supporting messages, I passed everything with flying colours!), I simply forgot about it, during that time visited Minecraft again, I don't remember when this was but I decided to visit VipersLair to see who was on (I'm sure you know where this is going...). The server wasn't online. perhaps some maintenance on the server or it was just my connection, so I got to this very sight and find out the bad news. I was pretty hurt, to be honest. Though I came to realise that it wasn't exactly the server I missed, It was the people I'd met, those people who I remember would be; Alpha, Nauga, PrayedGerm(ComradeGerm now, probably got the old name wrong), Greengaming and I'm definitely sure there were others who I can't seem to remember at the moment (Sorry guys!). I miss you guys, it has been a while though would be great to have as many people as possible meet up on a discord server or Minecraft Server, perhaps both one day just for old times sake :) I have some old screenshots to share if anyone is interested? This would mostly relate to Nauga. For anyone who remembers me, please do comment I would love to chat! Feel free to add me on Discord at JackTheNothing#1361
