Most players have been falsely banned by GWEN before. No anti-cheat is far from perfect so there may actually be some instances where the code catches legit players and QA thinks the ban is correct. This is very fuming to wait out, knowing you did not cheat yet still got penalized. Ban waves are harder to provide proof for from your end because they do not punish on the spot. Although I am no anti-cheat developer, I do not know in what time from does the waves finally execute the ban but logically, it should not be more than a week. With that in mind, there is a method to gather evidence for false bans in the form of a wave. Always record while playing. I recommend using a software that does not take up a lot of space. Nvidia GeForce would not be a very good option because an hour of footage is already a few gigabytes in space. You have to be forced to delete some recordings, leaving room for false bans to thwart you of your entertainment. The next step might be tedious but it is to display progress through your level every time you log on and before logging off. This makes the appeal process easier for forum ninjas so that they do not have to do the math of experience gained through online time and games. I cannot guarantee this can work but I hope it helps! EDIT: Only use this method if the GWEN metadata determines that you were cheating.
