While normally we do not discuss account bans in detail, as you have come on the forum to discuss this in public, we will respond in kind. Let me assure everybody that the last thing we want to do is ban players - after all, why would we want to make games, and then not let people play them? But, there are cases in which a user is cheating and we have no choice but to remove them from the game.
So, you won the most recent Revenge Raid, and were awarded with the Battleship hull on January 1st. Congratulations! The problem, however, is that you now have 50 battleships (no, that isn't a typo). I've provided screenshots of your base below, showing your fleets as well as the build times of the most common type of battleship that you've built, which takes 7 days and 15 hours to built. While you've spent credits in the game in the past, you have not spent anything since the most recent Revenge Raid. Building 50 of these battleships would take a grand total of 381.25 days, and it's been 4 days since the end of the event.
I think the evidence speaks for itself.
Here's your dock:
And here's the shipyard with the most common loadout of battleship that you've built:
I want to make sure that our players understand we do look for cheaters, we will remove them from the game, and we'll ban spenders - while we do appreciate people spending in the game, that doesn't mean they get to cheat. Oh, and the Battleship hull has been awarded to the runner-up in this sector.

Hulls - most of them
Limited Hulls - most of them
Weapons - most of them

I had fun reading all the comments in this thread. One thing I haven't seen anyone comment on is that he "paid" for making all 50 ships (presumed from the example fleet) veteran ranked, which is also a hefty amount of creds to do so.

We do not want to have a "wall of shame" to publicly call out players. For privacy reasons, we prefer to handle these issues one-to-one.
This particular player chose to bring his issue to the forums (probably because he thought he'd get the community behind him by complaining he was banned unfairly). As he chose to address the issue in public, we responded in kind.

are you 100% sure , did he spend money to build them all and it has just glitched and not showin up on your side or what ? as you all should know this game is full of glitches , just hope you really did investigate it properly ..... other wise $5000 on a game just to be banned ... certainly would not be happy about that dont think any 1 would be
