On top of that, we were able to find the reason why gbt2008642 was using kill aura for the swamp spiders. He was using it to get Emeralds very fast to sell to freshblood032’s shop:

Duping
As for the duping ban, a machine was found in a mega farm partially owned by GBT. It is used to change the color of concrete powder and sand. It essentially allows the user to create, say, black concrete that uses expensive ink by swapping white which uses cheap bonemeal. According to the server rules:

Minecraft is a very open game, which means there are many things that can be exploited. Using exploits or glitches is not allowed in our servers. Duping, exploiting a glitch or plugin to create items, is also not allowed.


Gbt abused this game bug to swamp one type of concrete for another. While it may sound harmless, he was able to circumvent the entire use of dye and the entire crafting process. This is clearly an exploit and an unfair advantage compared to those who need to get the dye and craft normally.

We have logs of him placing concrete and red sand and then picking up concrete and normal sand from the collection chest. The machine only has one use and quite evidently was used to abuse the glitch.

The machine used is an exact replica of this duping machine shown on Youtube.
Recreation of this machine in-game will cause the builder to be banned for duping, as well as an account reset.



Ban time

Based on previous bans, kill aura is being classified as the same ban time we place fly, speed, jump, etc.

The Rules wrote:Any mod that gives an unfair advantage over players that don't use it is not allowed. That includes Xray, Nodus, and MobRadar, and any other third party clients.


The Rules wrote:Flyhack:
A 3 month ban.


The Rules wrote:Duping, exploiting a glitch or plugin to create items, is also not allowed.


The Rules wrote:If there is a glitch with a plugin or aspect of the server that can lead to an unfair advantage for a player, report it immediately to staff. If it is not reported and instead abused for ones benefits, the player will be banned based on the duping punishment.


The Rules wrote:Duping:
A 1 month ban, and the player loses all their items, property, and money.


3 months for kill aura + 1 month for duping = 4 month ban time.

Gbt was also banned twice before:
viewtopic.php?f=298&t=7586&p=60369&hilit=gbt2008642#p60369
viewtopic.php?f=298&t=30727&p=317252&hilit=gbt2008642#p317252

This adds +40% ban time, making the total ban 168 days (5.6 months). Gbt will also lose all property, items, and money in accordance with the duping rule.
