Avoid These 7 Mistakes When Applying for an Activision Ban Appeal

Hit with a ban from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4?

You’re not alone…

..a lot of players shoot themselves in the foot by messing up their appeal. You don’t want to be one of them, right?

But what if I say you can get your Activision account back?

All you got to do is avoid some mistakes when going ahead with the Activision ban appeal.

Picture thisgetting your account reinstated and returning to the game you’ve always loved playing.

Read on as you’ll find the 7 worst mistakes that put a dent in your appeal process, giving you the best shot at getting back into the game.

So, why wait now? Let’s get started:

Mistake 1: Not Understanding Why You Were Banned

It’s important to understand why you were banned. If the game is Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and the reason for your ban is “use of an exploit”, then Activision detected that you were using a glitch or bug in the game to gain an unfair advantage over other players.

If it was because they detected someone using your account as well as their own, then they probably won’t unban both accounts unless they find out who was using yours and tell them not to do it again (or else).

If you were banned from a game for using an exploit, then it’s unlikely that you’ll be unblocked since that’s against the rules. If you weren’t aware of what was happening and it was just a glitch in the game, then there’s a chance that you could get unbanned.

Just make sure to contact Activision Support directly about this and explain why they should unblock your account.

Mistake 2: Providing Insufficient Information in Your Appeal

When appealing a ban, you should provide a detailed description of your account, including the following:

  • The name of the game(s) you were playing when your account was banned.
  • A description of the violation, including what happened and when it occurred. Be sure to mention any other players who were involved in this incident if relevant.
  • A detailed description of the circumstances surrounding the violation (e.g., why did someone else intentionally cause harm to my game?). If applicable, include screenshots showing proof that no hacking or cheating took place on your behalf; otherwise, explain why these things aren’t likely possible given what happened during gameplay at that time (e.g., “I didn’t have enough time between rounds for someone else’s character model change”).

Mistake 3: Being Disrespectful or Combative in Your Appeal

You should be respectful and avoid being combative or aggressive in your appeal. Activision is a large company with many employees, so it’s important that you don’t come off as condescending or threatening to the decision-maker.

Don’t use profanity in your appeal letter; this will only make your case look worse than it already is!

Also, don’t question the intelligence of whoever reads through your application—it’s unfair and won’t help you get unbanned from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Multiplayer Mode!

Mistake 4: Filing Multiple Appeals Simultaneously

The fourth mistake you can make is filing multiple appeals simultaneously. This can lead to confusion and delay in processing your appeal. It’s better to file one appeal, wait for a response, and then file another appeal if necessary.

You may be tempted to file multiple appeals because you want to get your account back as quickly as possible; however, the appeals process is automated, and the system may not be able to process multiple appeals simultaneously.

In fact, Activision has said that they won’t even look at any additional information until they’ve responded to your first request!

Mistake 5: Failing to Acknowledge Violation of the Rules

In your appeal, you should acknowledge and apologize for breaking the rules you violated.

You can also explain why it’s important for players to follow the rules. For example, suppose you were banned for cheating on Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.

In that case, it will help your case if you explain how much time and energy went into developing your skills as a player so that other players have an enjoyable experience playing with or against you.

Finally, make sure that future behavior will be different from past behavior by stating exactly what changes have been made since this last incident occurred (e.g., “I’ve stopped drinking alcohol during playtime”) or explaining how things will be different going forward (e..g., “I’ll stop using voice chat”).

Mistake 6: Not Providing Evidence to Support Your Case

The final mistake many people make is not providing evidence to support their case. If you want to prove that the ban was unjustified, you must provide Activision with proof of your innocence. This can include:

  • Screenshots of the game (showing no signs of cheating)
  • Evidence that the other person was cheating or breaking any rules (such as being abusive)
  • Evidence shows that the match was played privately, making it impossible for anyone else to join.

If you do not have any of these types of proof, then you must provide Activision with a good reason why the ban was unjustified. This can be very difficult if you do not know what happened during your match.

Mistake 7: Not Following Up on Your Appeal

The last mistake to avoid is not following up on your appeal.

When Activision bans you, they email you instructions on appealing the ban. You have 30 days from the date of this email (not from when you were banned) to submit an appeal and explain why you deserve another chance.

If they don’t hear from you within 30 days, they will assume that you don’t care enough about Overwatch or gaming, in general, to warrant unbanning yourself so easily.

If Activision does accept your request for another chance at playing Overwatch online without getting kicked out again, then great!

But if not…then what?

Well, if it’s been less than 90 days since being banned and/or making an appeal request, then there isn’t much else we can do but wait until our next opportunity comes around again sometime next year.
