Gametracker does not de-rank for using 'bots'.
One of the most frequent causes of de-ranking is fake players.
I am not aware of any server being outright IP banned simply for using fake players.
Repeatedly being de-ranked could result in an IP:port ban however and...
The Not Ranked ('NR') status may however be, or become permanent for the IP:port combination.
Multiple abuses by from a single IP may result in an IP ban or constant 'NR' status.

There are to my knowledge quite a few 'NR' servers using fake players at the bottom of ranking lists.
Not all servers have been added by their owners, and therefore not all 'NR' servers are specifically attempting to break Gametracker ranking rules.

Hint: I do not accept (or reply to) personal requests for re-ranking or unbanning.
You must use the forums please.

There are both IP and IP:Port bans. We cannot guarantee you would remain unaffected by other servers on your same IP. For example, if there are too many issues on the IP, the entire IP may be banned.
I am retired from GameTracker after 11 years and will not be responsive for support requests.
