I got muted. Please explain

So it seems i got muted on ceonss for some reason. yesterday when i left the server, i could use the chat, today, nope. not the main and not even the team chat. tried while spectating, but same. tried it on a different server to see if the problem isn't at my end, but no problem there

Hey Zoner,

You have probably got the same game ID as another player who has been muted. I'm sure the boss could give you some more info (and possibly a solution) once he has a chance to read your post.

Meanwhile, other people who might also be experiencing the same issue are urged to come forth and let us know about it. If the fallout proves to be wide, this muting should obviously be undone in favour of a more suitable solution. We're sorry for the inconvenience, Zoner.

ah, there's your problem. Around about half the players playing on ceonss are using shared versions of the game all with the same game ID. Once one person is muted/banned everyone with the copy is.

Just wnodering: Why did you never bother to get your own key? Sharing a key with countless other people is bound to get you in some kind of trouble.

Would you believe me if i told you that it's like impossible to get a copy of UT in serbia? it's an old game so noone is bothering to get it. I actually bought it last year, only to find out that i was opened and the key is banned, told the store to send me another key, they said that was their only copy, so i sent it back

Wow, that's weird. Can you get it off of Steam or something?
