Prike Appeal (Complete)

Post by Prike » Fri Feb 08, 2019 2:40 pm

Hello, it's been a while since i stopped taking games serious regarding some personal problems. Recently i got back into gaming especially the ones with achievements and i wanted to join the community but unfortunately i have a dent from the past and now here to come clean.

So few years ago i think, when i just started with the achievements i had this problem with a bugged achievement in a small game and out of all frustration i used a tool to unlock that one certain achievement which i regret a lot but eventually came clean and was back on track until one day got convicted again for another small game which i actually don't remember cheating, i'm guessing i did something for personal benefits when i didn't think much about achievements. So since i wasn't sure how to explain it and i had already took my second chance on Astats I just left it like that and had to back away from gaming due to being new at the University but tried to make some time and play or maybe get some achievements if i like the game.
Recently I actually started playing and have a list of games i'd like too 100% and in it for sheer satisfaction of unlocking achievements after hours of grinding. Thought i could the community for better experience and would like to make an appeal.

Discord: Prike#1620
Steam: https://steamcommunity.com/id/therealprike/
Games:

- Dr. Langeskov, The Tiger, and The Terribly Cursed Emerald: A Whirlwind Heist: After the game just released there was an achievement where you have to find some pretzels but the achievement wouldn't pop so .... i used an achievement unlocker but relocked it and got it.
- GUN MONKEYS: as far as i remember i may have unlocked some of their achievements with 3rd party software but not sure why, i've relocked them.

I'm really sorry for taking too long to make an appeal. A traditional holiday came up and had very little time on my computer (I'm from Mongolia). Excuse my bad english.

Really appreciate everyone taking their time for me to make things better. Thank you!

Can you link me to your old or current AStats appeals? What other games were cheated in the past? What exact "unlocker tool" did you use?

Thanks for appealing.

I can't seem to find my own appeal post, did they made any changes over the years? https://imgur.com/a/rTIHCAc
I think it was SAM and no there are no other games.

Yep - they have had a few hacking-related takedowns of the forum there and had to start a new one - any estimate when your old appeal was posted? Which games did you cheat in the past?

After your old AStats appeal, why did you continue to use SAM?

I did not continue to use SAM. I think it happened in 2016. The second accusation which was few months after i appealed for one bugged achievement (on https://store.steampowered.com/app/409160) and took my second chance, was made by another moderator and that was the end. I wouldn't call it cheating since it was for something i did way before i started hunting achievements but failed to realize it. Eventually re-locked all the achievements on that game(https://store.steampowered.com/app/239450/) to let it off my chest.

Okay, so to be clear:

In the past you cheated Dr. Langeskov with SAM and also probably Gun Monkeys with SAM. You appealed on AStats but only mentioned Dr. Langeskov so later when your Gun Monkeys cheating was discovered, you were perma-banned for not mentioning ALL cheated games in your first AStats appeal?

Any other games from your past you want to mention or think are strange? Any idea at all what happened exactly with Gun Monkeys?

How about RE4's Krauser boss fight and bottle cap challenge mode achievements?

Many strangely close-together stuff in Metro 2033 as well?

I honestly have no idea what was i doing with Gun Monkeys and the unlock dates were in 2014. When I was appealing on Astats i had only one reason and that was the Dr langeskov game. I didn't try to hide or even remember anything about Gun Monkeys.
They didn't permanently banned me thought, i remember they had a rule that a person can appeal only once so i didn't appealed again and asked the mods to disable my profile and i quit the whole achievement hunting stuff but still did it on my favorite games.

CSGO - It's pretty much self explanatory after how many hours i spent on the game.
Payday2 - I've never played Payday 2 that serious especially for achievements, used to download it a few times for the sake of a friend's request to play co-op. Last time i remember launching the game, bunch of achievements i've previously had unlocked re-popped up again. That i don't know why but i have never messed with this game's achievements nor i had any reason to. The game's really weird.
Metro 2033 - Used to play pirated version a lot until i got internet connection and discovered Steam. Achievements are simple enough alongside the sequels. Now working on Metro Exodus.
RE4 - well that's weird. My all time favorite game. Spent many years on emulated version of it before it got released officially, also on PS3. Know my ways around really well. I did complete the challenge at the shooting range and unlocked all bottlecaps.

If it's necessary, i can re-do Metro and Resident Evil 4. Gives me a reason to go through the games again (after i finish my currents runs on other games because of low disk space). This does not mean i've cheated, i'm just willing to do it if it's causing problems.
