In Topic: Thoughts On Blizzard's DQs

18 August 2016 - 09:50 AM

I actually haven't played this game in a long time, but I do sometimes keep track of what's going on and stumbled across your video Glinkz, was interesting to watch and you made some solid points.

Here's what I think; going to Blizzcon makes you an ambassador of the game, wether you like it or not - you're not only representing yourself or your team, but the game aswell. Some would argue Blizzard shouldn't care less/more during such an event about banning 'cheaters' - but it's insanely hard to track down each and every single person on a active arena ladder that's consistenly changing and so are people's characters' names. Take Jamie for example, he changed his shamans name. There's tons of players transferring to different realms changing theire names or even changing the class they play on (like you said yourself Glinkz, sometimes you had no clue if it was theire character, or an alt or whatever). It would be too demanding to track down proof for every player on the top tier of the arena ladder so you could ban them. Instead they're looking at theire 'ambassadors' - the blizzcon invitees - and look at what wrong they did so they don't set a bad example.

One player is more disgusted with wintrading (like myself) while others are more disgusted with account sharing.
But when it comes down to what should be punished harder/more, to be completely honest, it doesn't matter. It should all be punished equally or it should not be punished at all - there's no grey area in between, I believe it's as black and white as that.
