Re: Play WoW? Come in.
Well, guess what? I've come back for more advice, but this time it's regarding a ban.
My younger cousin's account got banned today after a week-long fiasco with Blizzard. First, he got a 72-hour ban for "Economic Exploitation," which neither of us knew the definition of. I found out it meant using illegal programs to help level you, OR throwing off the balance of money in the game. (???)
His account was cleared after three days, but we couldn't log on anymore. Not even with his new, reset password. I emailed Blizzard about the situation and wanted more info on WHY he got banned. Their reason? Totally unrelated, saying that the account was played on by someone else. That's not even true, and isn't the initial reason they used to ban him!
Fast forward to last night. My cousin was sleeping over for the night and tried logging into his account when we noticed that his main character was GONE. That's right...GONE. Not there anymore. We freaked out, he changed his password, and I emailed Blizzard AGAIN regarding the situation and a possible situation where his account was being hacked.
Want to guess what happened just a few hours ago? We logged back in and found almost every SINGLE ONE of his characters off the account. His old characters, his mid-level ones, and even the new PRIEST he started (the one I initially told you all about) are all gone.
So, while I'm trying to figure this out, he gets kicked off the server. At this point I immediately knew that someone was messing around with his account. But guess what a login showed us?
"This account has been banned and can no longer be used..."
Can you say "WTF"?
