The authenticate link ain't working so I'm doing this manually Byond account/character name: Omnitricks/Edgar Christopher Banning admin: ErikHanson Ban type: Catban Ban reason and length: Decided to blow up two welder tanks because a dude was trying to wrench a youtool Time ban was placed: 12pm GMT 11/3 Round ID: 27201 Server logs: Edgar Christopher fires the double-barreled shotgun! Dan is hit by a beanbag slug in the chest! Edgar Christopher fires the double-barreled shotgun! Dan is hit by a beanbag slug in the chest! Dan says, "Why" You close the maintenance hatch of the YouTool. You put the screwdriver into the toolbelt. [Obvious intent to prevent the clown from sabotaging the machine so I can use it, and obvious display that I was keeping it at stuns] Dan puts the wrench into the mechanical toolbox. You break open the double-barreled shotgun and unload 2 shells. You load 1 shell into the double-barreled shotgun. You load 1 shell into the double-barreled shotgun. Edgar Christopher fires the double-barreled shotgun! Dan's left arm has been violently dismembered! [Clown brought in a weldertank knowing that the only method I can stop him from ruining the machine was through my beanbag shotgun] Dan painfully crawls forward! Dan has robusted Edgar Christopher in the chest with the mechanical toolbox! [Escalation to actual attack by clown from something dangerous he had obviously, knowingly brought into the equation in the first place] Dan has thrown the mechanical toolbox. Edgar Christopher fires the double-barreled shotgun! Dan is hit by a beanbag slug in the chest! Edgar Christopher fires the double-barreled shotgun!2 [Logs don't show this on my end but I'm sure someone can pick up that the clown was dragging a welder tank with a lit welder in hand, this was done while he was rushing me with the obvious intent to welderbomb] Dan's clown suit starts to fall apart!2 Dan's left leg has been violently dismembered! Your side of the story: Clown started unscrewing and unwrenching the youtool, obviously, so he can hide it somewhere until he can get his hands on a coin which is a shitty method. I stunned him to fix the youtool but before I can use my coin, Clown started unwrenching again. I backed off to reload my shotgun and also so clown can't slip me and he grabs a weldertank just as I was to shoot him because I completed my reload. Boom. If his injuries was really that important, he could have went to medbay to get healed. I already gave him room to do so without interference because my intents is obviously to use the youtool but he escalated it with the toolbox (which I eventually got off of him and hid in an escape pod) I went back and clown was bringing out weldertanks into the hall again which I just stood and watched until the point he lit a welder in hand and dragged the welder at me to welderbomb. Why you think you should be unbanned: I started with non lethal. Clown was the one who brought in the dangerous elements of weldertanks knowingly when he also had his own means of keeping it nonlethal (peels and pda) which is an obvious kill/banbait. While I left him enough room and opportunity to fuck off to get medical attention, he instead decided to make it physical with the toolbox. From the logs it would be obvious I was keeping it non lethal and to seperate him and myself from offending materials. The weldertank which killed him was a result of him further escalating it with his own attempts at welderbombing which would have had him kill himself anyway. Tl: dr; obvious case of kill/banbaiting by the clown and valid escalation to the conclusion of the clown's death (at least on my part) as he was the one to increase it at each stage. I don't know who the clown is either but take this as a banreq of him for the same since he instigated, escalated, lost and got an admin to ban me.
