Link to the source of punishment (report/post): S1: KoS in unkown location as a result of spawn teleport bug - 09/10/2019 18:49 or 18:50 ( I hope I have done this correctly)
Why the verdict is not fair: N/A - Sadly due to work commitments I was unable to reply to the original forum post / thread sooner but acknowledge I should have done.
Additional statements/comments explaining your point of view: Further to the original string I had been playing for a few hours and was working with two others whereby we had successfully repaired and were travelling in a truck, despite numerous environment threats we were successful in moving to what we thought was a safe area to stop. It was very dark and while we were running some brief storage admin my companion had spotted another player that had jumped into the drivers seat of our vehicle. I was on the bed of the truck at the time and while the situation was brief heard his two warnings to said player to leave the cab. I was temporarily panicked, first at the fact that someone was in the cab of the vehicle and two that is was complete darkness. Despite the server issues on the evening, which again I acknowledge, as I wasn't seated I was worried that should the player have driven off I would have have been left on the road, I followed my companions warnings with my own which on not receiving a response resulted in my shooting the player from the truck bed. With hindsight I could have perhaps waited longer for a response but given that two were ignored and I was the only member of our active group on the vehicle I decided to take the shot. Not long earlier before these events I saw a server communication from a local group/faction saying that all vehicles must be checked / registered which again made me suspect we were being hijacked. I sincerely apologise to the player involved as I heard no voice comms and can appreciate their frustrations on feeling they had been killed on sight. From my POV however this was not the case, I feel that we gave sufficient warnings and took the shot for the reasons already expressed.
What would you like to achieve with this appeal: I'd like to remove my ban.
What could you have done better?: Waited longer for a response, and despite not recording the incident now see the importance of doing so.
