We and other communities / clans have experienced an issue with IW4mAdmins Anti Cheat. According to its main developer Raidmax it seems like when a player kills a bot the offset of the bot is somehow parsed as the offset of the player. Which causes values that are impossible to reach for legit players and then causes an automatic ban from the Anti Cheat.
All AUTOMATIC BANS caused by OFFSETS have been deleted.
We are sorry for the inconvenience caused by this to the affected legit players!
We are currently trying to figure this out together with RaidMax.
Every single one banned wrongly during that process will be unbanned ASAP!
