Some Pokemon GO players are having their bans lifted

Some Pokemon GO players are having their bans lifted

Niantic has been handing out bans like hotcakes lately for Pokemon Go, resulting in a permanent disabling of accounts. "Accounts which used apps or websites to remotely capture Pokémon, battle or deploy on Gyms, or harvest resources from PokéStops are also not being unbanned". Players who used third-party apps to spoof their location and visit pokestops etc will remain banned.

The article continues below. Niatic compares this to a DDoS attack on their servers, which if that happens, ruins the game for the rest of the users. However, to be on the safe side, "Pokemon GO" players should use the Pokemesh app from a dummy account and not their main account to avoid any future ban. That's right, High Council of Virtual Spaces of Iran made a decision to ban Pokemon Go because they considered the game as security threat. Niantic's team started issuing bans based on whether players were using tools that were against the the copmany's terms of service, said John Hanke, chief executive of Niantic. "This includes blocking bots, data scraping operations, and banning end user accounts associated with those activities".

A few weeks back Pokemon Go founders announced that they would be handing out lifetime bans to all players who used third party applications in order to get one up over their opponents.

Remy joins Crystal Palace on loan
Palace are still looking for their first win of the Premier League season and will be counting on Remy to hand them a boost. This post was syndicated from Punch Newspapers.

Niantic remedied this situation by adjusting its terms of service, allowing players banned for the aforementioned reason to resume catching them all.

However, the company has also clarified that it is still vigilant about the cheats used for the game and accounts whose sole objective was to scrape data are not being unbanned.

Niantic is taking mercy on a select group of Pokémon Go players who have been banned. But even these users need to understand if they keep on using Add-on maps which generate data from the Niantic server will be banned again.
