My goodness.. did you all simply forget what happened at the end of season 11?

Blizz came out with big promises then too, stating that win-traders and exploiters would not get their titles etc etc. Well guess what happened? Although a select few were made examples of and ended up not getting their titles, the vast majority of them got their titles anyway.

What makes you think it will be different this time around?

I'm kind of sad that the bans are taking THIS long to come into effect. And there's still a lot of players with the gear/achievements/teams active.

Yep, no bans yet on my server, they deleted their team, but they all have their achievemnts and mmr still.

sigh
When will the penalties be applied?
UPDATE: November 14

"These, and all, exploitative activities are absolutely prohibited. We will investigate the situation carefully, and players that have been found to have participated in exploitation will be subject to the appropriate actions against their World of Warcraft accounts and characters"

"After that’s resolved, we'll assess the ladder and determine whether it's the right course, or even feasible, to make further adjustments."


Yeah, Blizzard is oh so careful. Please. The RBG Ladders have been bugged with exploiters for the last year, full of people from season 10 and 11, and the statistics on Eye of the Storm bugged. Take one !@#$%^- look at the top 15 alone. 3200 at 3-0? Why haven't they been insta-banned? This is a joke.

In addition to the measures already discussed, as a result of the rating inflation that occurred due to the exploitative activity, all Team Ratings and MMR above 2200 will be reset to 2200 during the upcoming maintenance.

Please note: Conquest Point caps should not be affected by this reset. Point Caps will return to the appropriate levels relative to rating the following week.

To clarify is this for arena only or does this include rbg? Rbg groups exploited as well.
