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

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.

Support abuse

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.

Account sharing

Sharing of accounts is punished from 1 month to 1 year, depending on the specific circumstances.

Multiple Accounts

Multiple accounts are not permitted on FACEIT so the user will be left with one account active and any multiple account banned. 

Ban Evasion

If you attempt to make a new account to avoid a ban, then the new account will be banned permanently and your ban will start over. Repeated infractions can result in an extension of the ban length. Evasion bans caused by the sharing of hardware used on other banned accounts will not be removed. It is the player's responsibility to ensure hardware they use has not been previously used to breach our terms of service.

Boosting/Ladder cheating

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. 

Unsportsmanlike conduct

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 1 month. 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 30 day basis, so make sure you are here to play or expect to have to wait awhile if you keep abusing these bans.

In game bug abuse

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.

Griefing & Trolling

This means ruining the game for your team and can include giving away your team mates' positions or tactics. The ban can last from 1 Day to 31 days.


This ban is for calling your own team's positions to the opposing team. The ban can last from 1 Day to 31 days.


Spamming text binds repeatedly in-game. The actual content of the written spammed text will determine the length of the ban, which can range from 1 day to 1 week.

Danger Zone Teaming

Danger zone on FACEIT is a solo game. Players are not permitted to play cooperatively with other players in the match and must work alone. The ban can last from 1 Day to 3 Months.


All 3rd party software that is not allowed by the game publisher and that can give an unfair advantage to a player or team go under the cheating category. This is also not limited to just cheat programs, for a full list please read our Anti-Cheat FAQ.

FACEIT has its own anticheat and players that get caught by the system will be automatically banned. Anticheat bans are not generally lifted and are permanent. We can consider removing a ban after two years after the banned player opens a support ticket, and only if he has not evaded his ban at any point.

League of Legends is determined manually by our support team via replays from the match in question.

World of Tanks Cheat bans are determined by our support team via replays from the match in question and possible screen shots and account access from the WoT website. These bans are also permanent. Abusing matches for in game credit is also classified as cheating and will result in a permanent ban.

Smite bans are also determined by our support team via replays from the match in question and the game developer.

The ban length for cheating with a game that we host on our platform is 2 years to permanent. You may request to play again on our platform once this length has been achieved on your original account ban.

The Appeal Process

System bans cannot be lifted unless there were technical issues which can be linked to platform's malfunctions leading to the ban.

If your ban was issued by our team and you believe you have been wrongly banned, you can open a support ticket explaining your point of view and providing us with the necessary documents to prove your innocence. Our team will review your case and act accordingly.
