That doesn't seem to fit what you are describing....a simple mouse macro

Are you able to be extremely more specific for us please? A screenshot of the support ticket would be helpful as well.

What was the exact specifications of your macro too?

I dont mean to question you so harshly but I find it exceedingly unlikely that a simple macro that has gotten no-one banned in 6 months would cause you to go from 'good standing' to 'account closure' without a warning message first or anything.

This is the ticket that I got, unless they ban me for refreshing the AH as I flip it. I will have to see on the appeal. There are only 2 thing that they can ban me for 1 is refreshing the AH 2 is Razor macro that loops itself.

whats funny is if you have a 6 key roll over keyboard (6KRO) it's SAME as a macro with no macro whatsoever. You can hold down 1 2 3 and it will continuously send 1 2 3. Up to 6 any keys it will do this.

About half the gaming KB's are 6KRO's

No i use a deathadder razor macro that loops itself, I think this was the cause of the ban as I did an uber run right before i log off and went to bed.

This has got to be a scam....earlier this evening a got a pm from "blizzard01" and it clearly was someone pretending to "gamesmaster" telling me to go to a website and "verify my account information". The person just made this topic to try to make people paranoid....why else would you still be able to view that CMs profile? This is clearly a fishing attempt....report so Blizz can take care of it

I've been using mine for months. I guess with the crap latency to Australia they are still waiting to recieve about 10 billion keystrokes from the last week )

Sad to hear that GbpUsd. Definately appeal and see whats going on.

You've been offline 6hrs 9mins according to my list.

Damn what a nice toon. Such BS. '

No my point was you could be banned for using a KB with no macro whatsoever just cause it functions like one. I'm sure they have a program that sniffs your keystrokes and when they look to repetitive it throws a red flag and they assume macro program.

Give customer support a call. Similar thing happened with a friend; Waiting for ticket takes forever, whereas a phone call can get it resolved pretty quick.

anyone uses the same macro as mine? I'm using deathadder macro. Unless they ban me for refreshing the AH(by hands) which the ban message does not describe it.

@skyQuake was your friend suspended or banned?

Why would you buy another copy of the game and start two new characters within six hours of being banned?

I'm using a Deathadder macro with 0.001 delay. On repeat whislt key pressed.

Why not have 2 accounts.. good way to play the AH. I won't go into detail on that lol.

I use this as mule for the AH.
@Aph That is so much faster than my delay, i think mine was like .005. I hope this can be resolved, this is like losing a cheap car and insurance isnt covering it :(.

My bans probably fell out due to packet loss to Austraia...

I very much doubt that its the macro. No idea what else it could be though.

Might be this. The warden might see this and assume you're an AH bot.
