So I just downloaded the beta and of course I went straight to the Giant Bomb Official Classic. I played for about 15 minutes (with only one other person in there with me) and I was starting to write a chat message about how bad I am at the game when out of the blue I get a message saying that I had been banned from the server. When I try to join now I get a message that I can't join because my IP has been banned.
Now to be clear, I had not said anything in the chat at that point, my username was not offensive (same one I use here and everywhere else), and I was using the default car/horn (and I wasn't honking at all). The only "behavior" that they could have had a problem with was that I am really bad at the game. Of the three tracks I played, I only finished one. Also I wasn't really paying attention to the chat so if there was a warning there I didn't see it.
Has this sort of thing happened to anyone else here and do I have any recourse to dispute that ban or at least find out why I was banned? Also do any of you have any other ideas for why I might have been banned? I've never been banned from anything before and to be banned so seemingly randomly is especially upsetting.
