N9mkOik botting

Yet again, we have exposed another botter among us: N9mkOik

It will come as no surprise to many. A lot players had a watch on him early on, since he quickly started doing top ranks while his name was still unknown. We already obeserved him when replay-bots started to become popular, but there never was definitive proof - until now.
Ironically it was N9mkOik himself, who brought him to our attention again when we moved a presumed legit rank from a fakename to his name. In his mind he was innocent as it wasn't actually him who passed the finish line. He only created a botted save-game and then gave it away.. However, after further digging we found more cheated ranks: For the record, N9mkOik has multiple times complained about botters, accused us of not punishing them hard enough and even wanted to review runs to help us spot them.

Ban forever
This shows he is not only a botter but also a hypocrite.

As a consequence, he will be name-banned for 2 months. The length of the ban will be increased should it be deemed necessary.

We estimate that he actively botted from 01.01.2018 to 30.04.2018. Due to the amount of potentially cheated relevant ranks (104 rank 1s and 34 rank 2-5s), we have decided to take special messurements. All of his top 5 Dummy, Solo and Race ranks he made during that time were deleted.
Allthough it may seem contradicting to our philosophy of not deleting legit ranks, this is the only way we can preserve the integrity and competitiveness of our rank system. Manually verifying ~150 ranks is simply not possible.

I also want to use this opportunity to quote my old friend Magnet:

You thought you were earning victory, you got defeat. You think you're earning respect, you're getting despise. And don't even get started in the common argument: "oh, but others are doing it, even pros!". No, real pros are not doing it. Some fake pros might, but we'll find and expose them.

Ban him forever.

Even him said it.

You should also hide him from the rank lists.

that's pretty ironic coming from you, given how borderline cheating you've been..

and to answer we actually thought about it but deleting tons of possibly legit ranks also sucks. there's no "fair solution", i've checked a lot of the demos outside of these time zones and they all seemed legit.

and yes it's really disappointing

Totally Fake News, botters can be catched in other ways, also replay bots.
teehistorian is probably the worst thing after New Hooktroughs and SDL2, it takes the fun out of finding Speedrun Tricks when you know that the server is always watching you.

Even if he botted 2-3 maps, it doesn't change the fact that he is still the best solo player of all you guys.
Even in ddrace he is a very strong player, for example "Aimlicous" is 1 of the hardest maps and he rechead last part with Vendetta. Mb he did a mistake but he is still one of the best solo racer. I botted on Aim 4.0 too but im still one of the best ddrace outside there.
