Is it possible to get banned from spycrabbing?

    I'm not really sure what happened, severe interpunction failure above, making it pretty impossible to settle the correct meaning.

    Spycrab "general" 1:1 rules:
    - Settle the bet
    - Have a MM / Admin on the server to observe/MM the bet.
    - The first to do 3 spycrabs LOSES.


    If no trade happened, and there is not enough proof of:
    - the bet
    - the spycrab outcome
    Then any report will be denied.

    I even believe we're not looking really into them atm, due that we highly recommend using a trade admin on the server to do the spycrabs if for anything valuable.

    Some servers have a way to control this better such as mine I have a map on that has private "lockable" spycrab rooms to avoid disruption. I also require people to use chat when agreeing upon wagers vs using voice that I can't monitor or save logs of and I advice people to screen shot as they go along if its something of a large wager for sure.
    The rules are murky to many as there are no universal rules so that is why I stated the above about having logs and screens to verify what is going on thru the whole process. So with this situation (which by the way is hard to understand based on how you typed it all out) it sounds as if there wasn't much to it and won't be aside from this post that you made so I wouldn't worry about it.
    Knucklejoe and SilentReaper(SR) like this.

    ehh it was most likely one of those toss up trade servers using a cheap minecraft map.

    Leaving mid-way a Spycrab gamble is considered scamming, so is not paying. Report anyone who does do either of these with proof ;) If they leave mid-way, it means they know they will lose and they are trying to get away from paying you at the end.

    Well in all fairness seeing as they both died the spycrab should have just been reset instead of one person claiming they won.
