We all know what has been going on with the account bans and gear removal for win trading. We finally have an official blue post about the issue. If you are unfamiliar with what is going on, check it out here: http://www.arenajunk...ead.php?t=21903

Important thing to note is that if you feel you have been wrongly banned, make sure to contact them. There have been reports of it being reversed upon further review. Hopefully, this also means they have done all the bans they are going to do for now, so if you still have your account you are probably safe.

Official Blizzard Quote:

In our continued efforts to support fair gameplay in World of Warcraft and to provide a positive experience for players, we have taken steps to ensure fair and enjoyable competition in the Arena by actioning players who have exploited the Arena system to gain artificial victories to purchase Arena gear. Our support team identified several hundred of the most abusive win traders, and action was taken against those accounts in the form of a 72-hour suspension, as well as removal of all Arena gear purchased in the current season.

We want to emphasize that this action was not taken lightly, and was only done to address the severity of the problem. Win trading goes against the spirit of World of Warcraft and hurts enjoyment of the game for all players who earn their victories by competing in a fair environment.

Blizzard Entertainment has always taken a very firm stance against win trading, and additional in-game updates will be made to limit this abuse in an upcoming patch. Additionally, we will continue to closely monitor the Arena system for any signs of win trading or other abuse.

If you were among the players actioned for win trading, but feel it was done in error, please contact our account administration team at [email protected].

Thank you for your support and best of luck to you in all of your games in the Arena.

Good news. We were contacted by Nethaera about becoming part of the Blizzard Fan Site program, and it looks like we have been approved. We see this as a great opportunity to start giving very focused feedback to Blizzard about the state of Arena and PvP in hopes of continuing to make the game more enjoyable for us.

The way we are going to try and do it is creating weekly feedback threads focused on a specific topic to pass along to Blizzard. The first one will be focused on the arena tournament and can be found here: http://www.arenajunk...ead.php?t=21326 Back to Top
