If Seeking was some random Asian or Eastern European automatch player he would be banned already just because of the clips. He wouldn't have been allowed to respond to the claims either. Seeking recieved very preferential threatment and if you think this is wrong I suggest you start talking to people who got banned for map hacking before and ask them how many days/chances to form a defense against the accusations they recieved.
Wrong! Stupid! Ridiculous!
You are mixing up two completely different scenarios. ML is not Relic, ML doesn't ban players from the game, ML is a community funded effort and as such there is always some sort of collective decision about "big" actions. Suspending/Banning someone FROM ML has always in ML history been done via consensus of patreons.
Since Relic didn't see fit to help us out in a timely fashion, Sturmpanther and A_E took it up on themselves to publicly present the problem based on some very serious accusations in order to protect the integrity of the tournament and start gauging opinion of Patreons about the situation. Whether that was right thing to do or not, it is debatable.
Every single in-game ban thus far has been issued by Relic. Sometimes based on community provided proof or based on their own investigations. WE DID NOT HAVE THE LUXURY OF RELIC'S ASSISTENCE this time around and that was clearly stated when this whole mess started.
As part of the investigations into hacking, we discovered other proof and decided to act based on what we know 100% in order to avoid further controversy and splitting of Patreons' vote and Seeking was accoringly suspended from ML within a day and a half.
This has nothing to do with race, ethnicity, country or whatever color of panties Deadbolt wears. Please stop with "woke" liberal BS, you are plain wrong.
