I was called a hacker in Freemode, because I chose not to use the event aircraft to collect the checkpoints, instead I called in my Hydra. I collected nearly all the checkpoints and somebody said they reported me for hacking. I obviously did not cheat, I just beat the system. Did it piss someone off? Yes it did, so they retaliated on me. Do I get banned just because of a sore loser? No. It has to be proven that I cheated, which I didn't.
