Pvp guilds Openly selling arena&rbg rating

Arenas
Just came back to game from break and noticed on three different servers i play on Tich,kt,daggerspine That several top end pvp guilds are openly selling mainly rbg and some arena rating. Im not naive i know people have been selling rating for long time but several of them arent even hiding it. Then my friend just told me earlier in the season a bunch of players had several things stripped from them for exploiting including achievments. Only problem is the reform the team and are instantly given all there achievments right back can blizz crack down on this already???
Smart players sell over skype.

Nothing blizz can do about it, well, nothing they are willing to do about it.

Yeah i was standing next to some guy in ogrimmar the other day who was in no malevolent and a green weapon and all of a sudden he got 1550,1750,2000,2200 in threes and fives in seconds. what else is new...
I recall Blizzard mentioning while its not in the spirit of the game, there is absolutely nothing rule breaking about selling titles as long as its for in-game items / currency and not for IRL money. I know it often comes to IRL money and those you report for three weeks, see nothing be done, put them on ignore and go on with your life.

You can't hack your mmr to be 2200 in seconds.
The way I understand it, it's totally legal to sell carries for in-game currency, and since any negotiations regarding real-world currency are handled in skype, blizzard can't prove any breach of ToS.

Those were probably legacy achievements. He must have just faction changed or something.
PvP is tough stuff.
blizzard has said multiple times in previous responses that there is nothing wrong with selling rating, as long as it is for in game gold/items.

it is against the ToS to sell a carry for IRL money, but that is usually agreed upon over skype and can never be proven.

basically you just have to live with it.

Blizzard won't ban top players. You have high rated arena players streaming piloting, account sharing, etc without any need to worry


Not necessarily true. There was a wave of bans around February for account sharing and numerous top players/streamers (Filo & Cdew to name a couple) had accounts banned
