BattlEye - Global Bans
If you are receiving a dialog box that says you are subject to a BattlEye Global Ban you must be aware that City Life RPG have no power or influence over these bans.
A Global Ban is issued by a third party Anti-Cheat Software Engine. No one associated with City Life RPG can overturn a global ban nor can we appeal such a thing on your behalf.
If you believe you have been banned in error, please visit the BattlEye Support website

If your appeal is unsuccessful and you have repented and wish to continue playing ArmA then you will require a new copy of the original software.

NOTE:
Don't bother appealing if you have actually cheated. You will waste everyone's time and will end up in the same position you are now, banned.
