Bans Reasons: Detailed Explanation
Inappropriate name/Avatar Bans
You will receive a default name change. If you wish to change your name after this you will be required to do so in our shop for 1000 FACEIT points. Inappropriate avatars will receive an automatic one week login ban. If not changed after the ban, the ban time will increase accordingly
Verbal abuse is any sort of trash talking, racism, sexual harassment, offensive religious comments conveyed to others. You will be punished accordingly depending on the severity of the abuse. These bans have a time span of 1 day to a permanent ban.
This includes the support chat, support tickets and emails. Any excessive amount of spam or impolite requests will be classed as support abuse. These bans can last between 3 days to 7 days.
Sharing of accounts is punished from 1 month to 1 year, depending on the specific circumstances.
Multiple accounts are not permitted on FACEIT so the user will be left with one account active and any multiple account banned.
If you attempt to make a new account to avoid a ban on your main account then the new account will be banned permanently and the main account’s ban will start over. Repeated infractions can result in an extension of the ban length.
Any method of boosting, this includes elo boosting, illegitimately gaining ladder points or abusing the ladder system will result in your account being banned. The bans range from 31 days to permanent.
Anyone being abusive towards team mates or opponents in regards to personal conduct in game. Anyone seen to be acting in an inappropriate manor on the platform. The ban ranges from 1 day to 3 months.
Intentionally throwing matches
This can include: Intentionally feeding, intentionally not completing the games objectives and the like. Depending on the severity of the offence will decide the length of the ban ranging from 1 week to 31 days.
Leaving or AFK
AFK bans are assigned to a player that fails to join the game once the server has been spawned. Once the game has started, it is forbidden to leave, if a player does the system assess a leaver ban.
These bans range from 30 minutes to 2 weeks. The system is automated and identify's behaviors of players dodging matches and will assess longer bans accordingly. This also holds true for leaver bans the more often you leave and ruin a game for your team mates the higher the likelihood of being banned that much longer. These bans are assessed on a rolling month basis so make sure you are here to play or expect to have to wait awhile if you keep abusing these bans.

This category includes the exploitation of known in game bugs for your own advantage. The ban can last from 1 month to 3 Months. Most severe offences (e.g. removing textures, removing smoke grenades, ...) will be considered as cheating and may be detected by our Anticheat and thus will result in a permanent ban.
