Why is everything broken?

Well this is awkward.

Yesterday my riven tracker went down

Twice, actually.

It's a redundant system with a backup client in case one of them runs into problems.

But it didn't go down because of technical issues, it went down because a player went out of their way to contact DE to ask them to ban my accounts.

That person then proceeded to contact me on Discord to claim responsibility, and warn against continuing my operations on threat of future harassment.

So here's how that conversation went.

Apparently there's a whole cabal of underground riven traders upset with me and this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Well that sucks, now what?

This seems to be a deliberate, manual ban, which is more concerning to me than being banned by an automated system meant to discourage botting.

The responsible thing to do at this point is probably to try and get in touch with someone from DE to broker a peace treaty so something like this doesn't happen again. I don't want this to escalate into a conflict by simply ignoring it and continuing on with business as usual.

I will attempt to get an official verdict on this, and accept whatever fallout that entails.

In the meantime, I appreciate your support, but please don't do anything on my behalf that might stir up drama; I seek a peaceful resolution to this and that will only make things more difficult.
