Saturday, 06/02/2021 @ ~6.30am Less than 12 hours after receiving my Conqueror's title @ a 1280 light minimum. The date and time I received my first ever ban, permanent ban, on Destiny (that's between Destiny 1 & Destiny 2). I'd like to start by saying I am a 3rd and final year University Student studying Computer Science as well as what I'd like to classify myself as a curious CyberSecurity Analyst (since this is the field I'm looking to get into). Understandably, I will have programs running not just in the background, but almost always my devices; laptop and main PC are stacked with IDE's, a bunch of debuggers, network analysing tools plus a dozen other tools used for development. I occasionally have OBS open and running if and when I need to record my gaming or otherwise record my display - such as sometimes, recording my lectures. Usually when I am gaming I have at least a couple programs actively being worked on compiling, analyzing or running some tasks in the background. Gaming is the what Netflix is to others, is to me, rest, enjoy and take a slight break from study. I've specifically tailored my firstly built and owned main PC (6+ months now), to what my use-cases require me to do. Yes, I don't exactly have a server at home, but needless to say, having 8+ core system & 48GB ram minimum is "a bit overkill" for a regular user. Hence I am pretty used to using most of my PC's resources and capacity to essentially multi task. So, what I believe (may) have happened. One of more of these programs are not particularly friends with Bungie's anti-cheat system which I admit, accidentally picked Destiny 2 as the game to run a progress scan on (multiple times in the past too), had posed what it thought as a threat & hence the ban. I'd like to clarify, none of the programs I use can permanently affect the game either client side, or server side as that's not what they're capable of, *at all*. However what I did, was completely an accident, you can notice the time this happened. 6 days later, here I am waiting on my [b]appeal [/b] to be responded to, and by recommendation of some buddies to post a thread on reddit about this. So I'm wishing somehow this changes the outcome of my situation, thanks for reading, bless you all, and don't do the mistake I done. I am sorry for my actions, and it's unfortunate for what I've done, but given my record, my actions will not done of ill-manner or any parlous reasons. Thank you for taking time to read this, Warmest regards to you all.
