I`m too good at WoW according to Blizzard

You can get in trouble for being too good at this game.

As some of you are aware, I`ve been farming ore and herbs and selling them at extremely low prices on the auction house. After saving up 7k worth of goods (about 14k worth at normal prices), Then posting them all at the same time. I was banned shortly after.

The reason.

Apparently I was using a bot, or I (Person with very little programming knowledge) changed client side files to give me an advantage over other players. I got banned, and warning saying I`m very close to the consequence volcano.

Do they want me to farm worse? I fail to understand your logic blizzard.

Sorry for being good at your game.

(Checking in game mail now, It better all be there blizz.)

Blizzard doesn't throw out bans just for the heck of it. Even so, this isn't the place to dispute such claims because your story will only be heard by Arathorians. If you feel you've been wronged, I suggest you put in a ticket or rewrite this over in the Customer Service forums which I will link.

Also, I haven't heard of the consequence volcano since Vanilla. I <3 that they still have that around.

Well I was just interested in this whole case really, however I feel as thou I have been wronged but I don’t feel the need to complain about it this time around I can understand if they were worried about me using a bot. Just it seems as thou they banned me without various reasons and it would appear I was banned on a whim.

I`m posting a various amount of items that I farmed today with my brother, If I`m banned again then I might just have to go further then resolving the issue.

Thanks for the link :)

Yep to ban them before they realize they are being tracked and can stop using the bot. Same thing they do with hackers on SC2.

Actually, one of my accounts got a "permanent" ban for using bots and buying gold. I did neither. It was also on an account that I rarely even logged in on.

Of course, after Blizzard "investigated" it, my account was restored.

Who knows what their rationale for banning accounts is. I didn't even have 100g on that account, so if I was buying gold and using bots, I sucked at it.

they did that to me also. took about 3-4 days for them to figure out that i was not using a bot and got all the herbs by farming myself. they said they could only comp me in time lost on the game and nothing else. well when they did that, 4 days later i had to restore my payment options to what they were before they credited me the 4 days.
