    I've put in a steam support request, sent Valve an email, and posted here. My next step is to try and post to Reddit as it seems like they pay more attention to that than this.

    Dota 2 Ban Appeal

    Hi Valve,

    I just recently received a 10 year ban from Dota 2 for "boosting, account sharing, or other matchmaking abuse." I can assure you that I have not been cheating in any way shape or form. Linked is my Dotabuff, ( I sport a sick 48% winrate over the lifetime of the account and a 46% winrate over the last month. Not exactly godlike performance.

    I can provide any other evidence required. I have traveled to a few different places this year and played Dota in 2 of them, St Louis Missouri and Norfolk Virginia. I played in Norfolk 8/17/2021-8/22/2021. I can find the dates for Missouri as well if needed.

    I trust that this issue will be resolved soon. I have been a loyal customer since Dota was in beta and continue to spend large sums of my disposable income supporting the game. I understand that players can sometimes become frustrated and report based on that frustration, but my MMR has not increased significantly and I would trust any sort of matchmaking abuse system would take that into account.

    Thanks in advance,
