Account wide achieves. If I had 22 this season on my dk I would have the gear on lol. Didn't leave a team. Everyone else is farming exploiters, why can't I?

If Blizzard wanted to promote fair play they'd fix the rampant CC in Arena/PvP. No wonder people are exploiting lmao, blizzard doesn't see that groups are skipping the teams that have massive CC. I'd cheat too if I knew how. FIX PVP!!!

If you cannot strip achieves/reset MMR should actually come out and say so.

Rather than just stripping gear and giving temp bans to people atm and making more people rage =/

Exactly what we needed. It's still going to be strange with rank 1 teams who weren't exploiting this (directly) sitting at 3k where the next team is 2600. We'll least that's fixed the right way GJ blizzard.
90 Human Warlock
Yes further adjustments needed, look at the obvious ones who got the MMR AND left the team to remake it
90 Human Mage
Thank you blizzard, good steps in the right direction
90 Undead Priest
Good show blizzard, although 3 days is a light suspension, removal of achievements was a desire I thought you would never go through with.

Although your developing philosophies have changed little, your desire for sportsmanship has evolved very thoroughly, I thank you for this.

I hope this is account-wide and not only to the exploiting character. Does anyone know if it is acc-wide?
I'm more worried about the people that aren't going to get penalized because they are innocent under a technicality. Such as those that intentionally queue'd into teams using the MMR exploit.
