World of Warcraft Unfair Players Being Hit By Blizzard’s Ban hammer

It seems that some World of Warcraft players don’t know what fair play is. Many of them – even members of top raiding guilds – have been involved in the bad practice of clearing dungeons in exchange of cash, but Blizzard’s ban hammer is about to hit them so hard.

The company has kept track of this kind of activities and will keep monitoring them even closer, in order to ensure fair play and competitive integrity.

We’ve recently taken action against a number of accounts that were actively participating in and/or advertising the sale of in-game raid or dungeon clears in exchange for real-world currency.

Such behavior is a clear violation of the World of Warcraft Terms of Use.

Of the players affected, many were members of top raiding guilds. We want to be clear that everyone we’ve taken action against had illustrated full knowledge and intent to violate the Terms of Use.

Going forward, in order to ensure fair play and competitive integrity, we’ll be monitoring these activities much more closely in order to make sure that the rules are being followed. This includes selling services for real money, account-sharing, and other violations.

Note that while selling assistance with obtaining items, achievements, PvP rating, or other in-game benefits for real-world currency is against the Terms of Use, selling those things in exchange for in-game gold is perfectly legitimate.

Players should not feel as though participating in a “gold run” is going to result in negative action taken against their account.

But Blizzard has also been busy in other ways. The company, as a matter of fact, has recently changed the way World Of Warcraft Tokens work, and you can now use the in-game Gold to get Overwatch loot boxes and Hearthstone cards.

These Tokens were introduced to provide players a good way to buy subscription time in exchange of World Of Warcraft gold, while giving others a good alternative to purchasing it from third-party websites.
