I got a 72 hour suspension and all of my Vengeful gear removed 2 days ago, due to "Arena Exploitation-Win Trading".  I sent in a well written response to try and defend my innocence.  To my surprised they reverted the decision but perma banned me for acct sharing/disrupting essence of wow.

For those who thinks this is fishy you are silly- I originally was given the 72 hr suspension like everyone else...then I sent an email explaining someone was on my account that I did not authorize while this took place, then they checked my IPs I guess and noticed this guy has been  playing/farming on my account.  So we both got the ban stick.



Moral of the story: Do not win trade, Do not sell points to win traders, Do not share account info, and DO NOT BUY GOLD.

Seems like they're cracking down in classic all-at-once Blizzard style, similar to when they raped me of 80k honor when I was gearing up this character and also took half the gear I already had purchased... although I WAS afk botting honor in AV so I was more disappointed that now I actually had to play in the battlegrounds for the next few weeks.  

I feel for you, but it is nice to see the win trading being cracked down on.  At this point it's out of control.
Where have all the cowboys gone?

I understand that they have to crack down on win trading.  So I don't mind the fact they deleted all of my teams(I can get them back easily).  But, the fact that they deleted ALL AND I MEAN ALL of my Vengeful gear makes no sense.  I had 5/5 vengeful for about 4 months now.  I even had it on my old server Ner'zhul.  Why can't they just deleted all the gear that was obtained THROUGH win trading?

You shouldn't of been win trading in the first place, the whole point to take all your vengeful gear is to teach you a lesson. Get point's like every other legit person out their, by earning them ffs.

Reread my post please. And stop posting ignorant replys. I did not win trade on the 2v2 which I would have recieved gladiator from. A friend win traded 10 games using my acct,his, and friends in game in 3s. Believe me or not thats fine, I don't have problems recieving rating legittly.  My account was perma banned for the reasons above.

But, I will have a problem regrinding all the gear that I had for 4 months, because of one little incident.

Something like this happened to one of my guildies. He says he has never win-traded in his life before. Pretty weird, and they never explained the evidence against him, or who else participated in the win trade. This happened only a few hours ago.

Sucks for those who didn't win trade. Good riddance to those who did, I couldn't care less if your 2s was legit.

Meh, I think taking away shoulders and weapon would be sufficient in addition to inability to attain a title this season.

Idc either. It wasn't me who even did this. I honestly think, once they stop this mass banning Blizzard will give me all my gear back.  Once they check the different IP's when the win trading occured.
