Kicked for taking a transport unit of the administrator Seriously, if you want to do this, call the Council on this issue. I didn't merge the game with this strategy, especially since Most of my drops paid off

If anything you should have been kicked sooner. I'm surprised nobody paused the game to votekick you after the first unit you picked up.

I'd be 1000% mad if you did this to me.

But why TiniSpider? My drops helped the team. I don't see anything wrong with helping other players do more damage.

Because they are not your units to fuck with.

Okay, I get your point. I'm afraid we won't agree on them. I consider the dispute over.

While the transported units did make cost in terms of raiding and mex denial, you should not move peoples units without their consent or even telling what you plan to do.

Now, there is few cases where I would argue picking up units without further notice. These cases are:
1.Trying to save stunned commander or other high value unit, such as Strider from assaulting enemy forces.
2.Taking Snitches, Imps or other suicide units that aren't contributing much to drop them on approaching enemy assault/shieldball.

Given that I was all alone on the right flank and about to fight a 1v2 abducting over 50% of my units by value to go raiding with them is not "helping the team", whether they made cost or not.

The fact that you thought you were helping the team is irrelevant to whether your actions were acceptable in any case. If I had thought you were helping the team by abducting my units I probably would not have objected, and hence there would have been no need to kick you.

I asked you not to take my units several times, then warned you that I would kick you if you continued, then you just kept going. I don't consider myself or any other admin obligated to ask for a second opinion when the issue is (a) obvious and (b) the game will be improved much more by prompt action than throwing around bans afterward.

If you'd done this to somebody else and I handled their report you would probably have been banned, and then banned for even longer when you made a smurf, so count yourself lucky. Abducting your teammates' units without active consent is one thing, and is occasionally reasonable. Abducting them when they are EXPLICITLY TELLING YOU TO STOP is another.
