Let me start by saying this isn't a Q_Q thread. I'm looking for genuine advice and opinions, regarding a tragic case of organized win-trading.
This was the Vindication Battlegroup, season 13 (Tyrannical).
The story leading up to the end of the season is this. It was a primarily Spanish/Mexican dominated BG, and we dominated. The top teams put up a good fight, however we were running Ret/Hunt/Priest and we never lost a series to anyone there. Until DDoS master Wizkhalifax got involved.
He threatened/tricked/conned our priest into giving out my IP address. They even went so far is to find out my other partners and my own IP through Arenajunkies, which we soon discovered and remedied.
I went as far as to borrow a Cisco ASA (Hardware firewall, from school, I am studying Systems and Networking) to protect myself from the attacks. That really fucked them in regards to trying to DDoS our team down.
We proceeded to queue, me not changing my IP intentionally. The retards queued ridiculous comps such as double priest feral and double priest hunter as they were sure they were easy wins. The ASA protected the attacks, and they got farmed.
We continued on throughout the season, farming their counter comps, (ele disc feral, fmp, rmp) literally anybody and gained a healthy +100 point lead by the end of the season.
Now, here we are at midnight and the servers shutting down. Our team waits online, and in the last 30 minutes of the season, the DDoS lord Wizkhalifax literally LEAVES his rank 2 team (he has R1 in 5s, you can guess how he got that), joins the team being PILOTED (A hunter/feral) and queues INTO HIS OLD TEAM, gaining 100+ points to pass us in the last 30 minutes.
By the time we could react, we sat in a 10 minute queue and servers went down, thinking "There's no way they could have gained 100 points that fast". Well, blatantly wintrading and losing games to yourself as fast as possible made it possible.
We ended the season 2730, them at 2731.
We know the other two players were pilots, as they EMAILED us earlier in the season asking for a tie because they didn't want to fight us for Rank 1 because it was a PILOT. We declined in good spirits of fair play, and because they could not win a match against us with my DDoS protection.
I quit the game after the GMs, after 5+ tickets and 20+ calls, told us the matters were investigated by their hacks team and nothing would be done to change it. It took them 3 weeks to get back to us.
I come here, as I have heard rumors of players making tickets for months straight and getting a GM with a brain to investigate the matter and have tables turned.
If anyone has any advice on the matter, I hear there is an email appeal but am unaware of what the email is.
Thanks for reading if you got through it all
-Dominated a BG
-Got DDoS'd, got a hardware firewall to protect myself from DDoS
-Farmed rating back, dominated again
-Wintraders BLATANTLY traded games against their old team to gain +100 points in 30 minutes
-Lost R1 by 1 point, Blizzard hasn't delivered justice but I hear they may still, if the proper steps are taken
