Mount Changes for Cross-Battle.net Transfers
Several of the mounts involved with this either completely went against the intention of it being removed (Battle Tank) to devaluing the work or either those who earned it while it was current or those who are still farming it weekly now. (Invincible, Mimiron's Head.)
From the looks of things this was a bit worse than the typical exploit seeing as how one or both parties lied about their identity to do this. I see no reason why there are still people running around with these rare mounts currently after doing such.

thats because i wasnt trolling and im sure everyone would agree. the comment made towards blizzard was opinion but i dont see how anyone could see it differently. i wont repeat what i said but id love to know the thought process behind allowing these ppl to commit fraud/account buying/mount duping and what u plan to do about it. if this is it im sure me and others would like to hear y ure allowing them to get away with it and keep all the mounts. we got an explanation for the firehawks and we want one for this.
I transferred my main account off my old Battle.net account. I guess that means I'd lose all my mounts now and get branded a scammer. Even though that was the account that originated all the mounts.09/17/2012 07:17 PMPosted by AnimusI was going to transfer one of my mains over to my secondary bnet account, but now I guess it's pointless. Once again exploiters screw over people who are genuine players.
I've told you to report them, Kim.
That's all you can do. What happens - or is happening is not something that will be discussed in public and is not subject to debate on the forums.
I'm going to garner the guess that you can't retroactively ban someone for doing it because there's no way to tell if it was done "illegally"?
"Illegal" = against term of service.
You also seem to be laboring under the impression that a report is the only way exploiters are caught - far from the truth.
no im not under that impression at all. im under the impression that nothing is going to be done about this as its been over 3 weeks (think that is when the patch hit) and mop is in a few days. when mop hits all hope of anything being done is lost. not doing anything about it is the same as saying its ok which is a contradiction because you hotfixed it so people couldnt anymore. it makes absolutely no sense.
Go down the list look at their battle-net achievements and feats of strength. Big flags are scarab lord.. crusaders mounts.. and vanilla collectors pets... especially when multitudes of these were earned on the same date. Pretty easy to get a good idea of who was exploiting.
Crap like this is unacceptable and ruins the game for legit players.
You should punish them by giving everyone all the mounts ;D Hey, when everyone has everything.. people will feel as if they have nothing at all.
On my other battle.net account which I only pve with I do have a few nice/rare mounts that would've been nice to have on my paladin since she never gets a shot at it since I only gear her pvp. So now I couldn't have the pvp mounts xfer over from the get go and now I can't have the pve mounts either. I can see why people are QQing and uproaring about it.
I will also like to mention, like another poster said on this thread, I payed $25 for a transfer for another toon into my pve account and I NEVER saw a warning or disclaimer about mounts and pets not carrying over. I'm not going to complain about the $25 since I payed for a transfer and I did get the transfer, the problem that I have is that e $25 for the transfer was to achieve something that is no longer offered and that is wrong.
WTB Huge pop up window at character transfer page spamming that mounts and pets will not carry over. It is on the FAQ though but how many of us read he FAQ before doing a transfer?

Not nearly enough, apparently, because things like this have been happening since.... basically forever.
