Blizzard, Activision, Vivendi, w/e they're called these days, I'm starting to think that these bans are all an elaborate plot to sell more copies of a fail game. Think about it logically.
The "Ban wave" that banned a bunch of botters, n thats great, but it banned even more of us who just wanted to legitimately grind gold for big upgrades cuz we have time off for the holidays.
You've got to have noticed that they tell you a list of reasons it COULD be that you got banned.. they then invite you to buy another copy of their game if you want to keep playing.
"Oh, right, well- we KNOW beyond any doubt that you hax, and we dont make mistakes, but feel free to come back and play by buying another copy, the digital-download version of which costs $60.00 USD + Tax"
All this seems like to me: a strategically timed "Before Christmas" sales tactic. Let's ban a bunch of people who are now on break n have actual TIME to play, call it botting, hacking, or just plain UNFAIR advantage, and perma-ban them so they run to mom n dad n beg for more copies, or pull out their christmas bonuses, and the likelihood of them selling another copy is exponentially higher, because it's about 10 days from one of the biggest, now commercialized holidays on the planet.
Well played, BlizzaVision. Well played.
props for trying to make an intelligent comment, but your reading way to deep into it. They are not going to ban anyone that has not edited the program files in any way. Enough with these conspiracy theories.
