403 when connecting to the Master Server. Have I been banned?

So I haven't been playing for a while, I came back and tried to play online but I can't search for any rooms because my connection to the master server has been rejected. I am getting a "Master server error 403: <!DOCTYPE html>", so I made an account on this forum to get some help.

Also, I have not changed the master server link in the settings, it is all default. I have tried reinstalling and restarting.

And any device on my network cannot connect to the master server either unless I use a VPN.

Have I Been banned?

which I assume are servers in their respective categories.

Do such thing happen consistently or only sometimes? Actually being banned would have shown a different error fyi.
I'm back, had a few things keeping me busy. Also restarting my router with a new IP seems to not help, for anyone still curious
