Hammerpoint's database has been breached fairly recently. There is a relatively high chance that your account's information was stolen. If you don't change your passwords often, a hacker likely used your account to cheat on.

If you didn't buy your account from Hammerpoint (aka, you bought your accounts from another player or website), there's a high probability that you purchased an account that was already hacked on.

All of my accounts are from pre-alpha (I have 5+). None of them have ever been banned or hacked. I change my passwords on a weekly basis.

A lot of people weren't banned for no reason, most likely for what p h d stated earlier. I was permanently banned as well, I had not played this game for months so it must have been for the reasons that p h d cited. This is what I have to assume because they have not told me why and according to their service 'agreement', they really don't ever have to.

"Service is provided by OP Productions at its sole and absolute discretion, and may be terminated or otherwise discontinued by OP Productions at any time and from time to time, for any reason or no reason, without notice pursuant to the Terms of Service and neither OP Productions nor any of its affiliates, licensees, or contractors will incur any liability to You as a result of such termination."

As such, all I can do now is warn people to not buy this game unless they are willing to risk their money. Sorry that you had so many problems with it, but you really are not missing much, other than the money you spent on it. I feel bad for the other legit players that still enjoy the game, because over the last few months, the server count has been reduced by 50% and that cannot be good for them in the long run.

You should check out The Dead Linger. It is still in alpha and in it's very early stages, but the devs are much more likeable and the game has great potential. There is also State of Decay and DayZ standalone, depending on whether you like PVE or PVP styles of gameplay.

Consider the following scenario:

A person buys an infestation account. They play for a little while. They get bored. They decide to mess around with a hack of some kind. Boredom continues to set in and eventually the person no longer wishes to play the game. They sell their infestation account to a third party reseller. Meanwhile, to no ones knowledge, the account has been flagged for hacking. Then some one else comes across the third party seller and decides to buy the flagged account. Afterall, the account is cheaper than buying one directly from Hammerpoint. The new account owner logs into the account for the first time and as soon as they load into a server, they are banned. They are immediately outraged and remember all the negativity they have previously heard about Hammerpoint, and, without stopping to think and recall where they bought the account, come to the conclusion that Hammerpoint must be at fault for falsely banning them. After all, they didn't do anything wrong. They quickly decide to head on over to the Infestation community hub and let everyone else know how wrongly they've been treated and how much of a ♥♥♥♥ty company Hammerpoint is.

I believe the majority of these stupid ♥♥♥ "I did nothing wrong but was banned, gotta tell the world" threads on here are started by people caught up in the above scenario, along with all the people who did cheat and got banned and are just posting bull ♥♥♥♥ in an attempt to convert more Hammerpoint Haters.

I do appreciate your point of view, Cipher88101. While I don't necessarily agree that a legit player's money is at risk by playing the game, I find it refreshing to read an opinion that is not composed of inane drivel. As far as the reduction in the number of servers, I believe that was part of a financial strategy. Fewer servers mean that the average number of players per server increases. This makes looting more dangerous due to the higher chance of running into other players. As a result, it makes the purchase of a safe, PVE server all the more appealing. It also saves Hammerpoint money on the number of servers they host.

The picture you quoted is a ban resulting from FairFight. Punkbuster bans don't prevent you from logging into your account, but rather repeatedly kick you from servers with an "error" message. Knowing that and after reading countless other threads like this, I'm not sure if I completely believe you. I'm aware that you probably don't care if anyone does. That said, I think your best option would be to move on to a different game. I am not sure what you hoped to gain by starting this thread (though I have an idea); nobody here has the ability to review your ban or do anything about it.

If people don't like the game, I wish they would just uninstall and play something else. No body that enjoys Infestation cares that you don't. Nobody on the community hub can do anything about your "unfair" ban. These threads are getting so ♥♥♥♥ing old.

Is this a joke? There's no way you're serious.
