It doesn't include Rated Battlegrounds at this time, and this is primarily aimed at the recognized Arena issue.
We're looking into RBGs though.
So, what happened to looking into RBGs? Lol.
They decided to only look at the exploiters, but not actually give them any punishment.
The fact that they are looking into it means they are aware of what is going on but unsure of how to approach the situation. If you watch any high rated RBG stream or queue RBGs above 2200, you are bound to run into these teams quite often and get free rating. With all of this happening it may become harder for them to tell the cheaters apart from the legitimate players. The fact that it has been allowed to go on for this long means that it has become extremely widespread. I hope the punishments for this are just as bad if not worse than the arena ones.

After this, they need to fix the exploit that allows wintrading to occur reliably.
They need to fix the issue first, and then action the exploiters after.
Why can't Blizzard fix these messes DURING the season or at least the xpac the problem is in.
It almost makes me want to join in on the abuse since clearly they DGAF.
It's possible that they are studying what the win traders are doing and creating a way to effectively find every one of them and mass ban. Not a very good way to control the damage it's already done to the system though.
I noticed somebody openly advertising "LFM RBG WIN TRADING" on Oqueue today and opened a ticket to report it. I wont mention the toon's name or realm in order to not break ToS but I do hope the rest of you will report any type of activity of this nature.
2 months later you defintely have a response to us
Blizzard you're so busted for not giving a damn about your players who play fair.
It is funny how people who have never been over 1750 in arena are now all GMs and HWs and they all get it in one day.
