Blizzard is coming out with new warden program, or so I hear, and supposidly another ban wave is coming to. If you don't know what I am talking about, it happened last september, blizzard must think we have fucking money to blow on new TBC cards and New games and monthy cards. They find the stupidest things and ban people for it.

I can say with confidence, I am no cheater, I haven't, and a never will. It takes the fun out of the game. I can also say, my Friend who was a 70 Tauren druid hasn't either. He was one of the most appreciated and well-liked druids on the server, had a way better rep than I did. He healed/tanked/dps'd, did whatever was asked without problem. 2 weeks ago, he was terminated. Banned, permanently. Supposidly, he was "caught" using 3rd party cheating type tools over 6 months ago. He's had the account since him and I went and boght them 3 weeks after the game was released.

It's not that big of a deal, I know that it's just a game, but I and he commit alot of time to it, and for someone to be canned for false accusations is really not fair. I sent emails in and petitioned, our guild petitioned. No luck. This kind of stuff reminds me of like back in the days of the French revolution, when someone could be gullotined for someone something someone may have made up about you.

Does anyone else have any of these feelings?

Warden is already fully operational. They are simply giving it a tune up. I was also banned for no reason whatsoever. They even told me in the follow up email (6 months later) that they couldn't tell me why they banned me. It is the most retarted thing I have ever seen. Blizzard is very unprofessional on how they are handling cheating.

Blizzard support is rediculous. They won't let me update my email to a new one after I lost access to my old one, without confirming the update on my old email. Now GMs keep in game mailing me saying "check your email". Nice one, dipshits.

They are idiots. I asked them for help when their site wouldn't accept my credit card number to digitally buy TBC. I sent them a email clearly saying I checked the number on the card multiple times. They sent me a email back saying CHECK THE NUMBER. If you have any further difficulties, call Blizzard on *number* during USA PST. And I'm in Australia. I stayed up till 3am to call them and when I got on with someone, the stupid lady said she couldn't hear me.

Take it as a sign from God and appreciate it! You've broken free (well, forcefully and of no choice) of the virtual second life that eats up so much of our free time and money and other shit.

Anyway, to hell with Blizzard and all who still play WoW. Been there done that. People being wrongfully banned has been going on since 2004. It should be printed on the box; "Play at own risk, you might one day be banned for no reason". I think in the general WoW community though, most players see this hidden warning. ;)

Haha. Giz, you finally quit the game? ;)

I left it around June last year.. sometimes I still want to play it just for the social aspect of the game.. or just to have something to sit back and chat with random people. But then I play a quick game of CSS or something, just for a quick fix.

I might go back to it one day, but Id play it a helluva lot differently, much more casual, and play it much more gradually..

Oh what the hell am I saying? That's impossible with WoW.

So they are still banning people for no reason? How pathetic. I think the community has become so filled with over-endorsed 12 year olds that Blizzard is trying to cater to there every need. Reminds me of Counter Strike..

"OMG U HAX" *reports*

And Blizzard lacks the sense to investigate and keep things simple and dirty.

Heh, I've been playing since day one and finally hung in the towel.. not because of being banned.. but the game is getting stale. It seems like in the programming aspect, the origional makers (those of you who remember beta remember all the neat things they had) left to make vanguard... then 'team b' took over... now blizzard is announcing a new game. MMO or not, chances are that team is being given the opportunity to work on the new game paving the way for Team C. yeah, no.. thanks but I'll quit now before it's completely ruined from all aspects and reasons that I signed up to play with. However, since we're on the topic of banning.. I was banned from the TBC beta because I said "you're reported, bitch" to a player that was griefing mobs into me because they wanted to kill them. The embarrassing thing was that I had a friends and family invite, not a traditional invite.

Blizzard makes great games, but the people who are responsible for WoW-support are the worst I've seen from any company so far.

I stopped playing because I got tired of the game though.

Problem I found with the game was, there is just no love for the casual player there. The way Blizzards system works, (The more hours, the good reward) is leaves those who look for casual play completely screwed on the balance scale.

I would've stuck with the game if I had the time for more of those raids.. I loved them. The teamwork and the epic scale of some of them. Hell. I might buy BC and get that druid sitting on 40 somewhere..
