    It certainly seems to be the case, that they are telling you spesifically to not join pvp again. That sucks. They probably reached a climax amount of complaints towards you and now they wish for it to stop. Just be glad they didnt just ban all your accounts. They seem to still want you playing, just not in pvp. Time for a "timeout" apparently, untill things maybe gets better explained later on.

    Personally i had a blast soloing AV etc back in days. But i stopped when they removed /follow, as i didnt dare to "circumvent" the removal by instead using iwt on stuff. Too afraid of getting a ban. Damn now i miss the good old days

    As I said in my initial response, we'd look at exploitative behavior which may be circumventing the previously removed of the /follow command, especially in connection to Zone/Area Disruption.

Your activity, then and now, has proven extremely disruptive, impacting the zone and stability or the area and you were asked to stop.

    Overall policy has not changed. That isn't to say the various elements of it aren't continually discussed, but when a policy shift happens we tend to see posts made by Community letting the playerbase know.


    For example, the update to In-Game Advertisement in the Looking for Group tool.


    I think it is time to lock this one up.
    I'm beginning to see a pattern emerge.

    I am amazed that it took so long for the gms on US to decide for a ban of multiboxing in battlegrounds after you did so many of them.

    Some of our german multiboxers which have also played bgs got told to stop. One did not stick to it and even got punished with a six-month ban.
    That was already at the beginning of legion I think.

    Anyway... at least you can still do some open pvp :P

    I've found a little bit of success doing arenas with 3. It's horribly clunking but it brings back the good ol times. Did 8 matches and won 6 of them. Granted it's in low ratings bracket.
    My random thought to all of this, would be terrible if its completely gone. It's bad enough follow doesn't work.

    Check out the official forum thread he had. It was a targeted action on him, not multiboxing in general.

    Reading it looks like yes, confirmed to be specifically him.

    However arenas are another matter. They aren't BGs you share with randoms so I don't see how a votekick could be abused there. That they mentioned arena should be concerning. Maybe the instanced PVP flags all look the same? IDK.

    OP could easily be win-trading in Arena.

    I guess that might be possible.

    Nah check all my toons. Haven't done any Arenas at all. Not sure why you would make such an assumption anyway, pretty strange.

    It wasn't anything specifically targeted at me, according to the supervisor that contacted me. I don't know who Vrakthris is at Blizzard or who is higher up there. But he was talking about something completely separate it seems, or trying to cover up and disguise this one with something else. In the phone call I was told no multiboxing in BG's and Arenas for anyone, at all, and I even mentioned "There are plenty of other people multiboxing BG's" and the reply was that I should right click and report them. He also mentioned this in the in-game chat. I asked just to make sure and he said everyone.

    Nothing Vrakthris talked about was ever mentioned by the supervisor in any form. Which is why the ticket screenshot literally says not to do BG's and Arenas. If it were for anything else, that wouldn't be the result. The result would of been probably a ban or a warning to stop some sort of behavior. So Blizz is being really fishy.

    I suspected they were probably just saying that because there was no announcement and because I had been targeted before. This confirms my suspicion that it was directly targeted at me due to the amount of complaints and they were just lying because they knew I hadn't broken any rules and that it wouldn't be right to arbitrarily target me. You can do BG's, unless you win. That seems to be more accurate.

    Its not a big deal. I prefer the open world, but I am pretty annoyed at how I am being treated lately by Blizzard after nearly 15 years without having broken any written rules.

    Yes, it was an assumption (it wasn't masked as anything else), but is it really all that strange to come to that assumption? Really? I mean... You wouldn't be the first mass-multiboxer to do such a thing.

    It seems pretty clear cut - They're just tired of your shit and the problems you're apparently causing for others. Even in the reddit thread you created (and have since deleted) there's someone who was in a battleground with you showing a video that they were flagged as AFK (look at their debuffs) by you and your guild, and for what reason? They weren't contributing? What they show in their video says otherwise. They obviously weren't AFK since they have almost the most damage done on the leaderboard for their faction, and you had to abuse the votekick system for that, which I doubt (look out, another assumption) is the first time that's happened.

    You can try to claim innocence all you want, but Blizzard was about to hand you another suspension until someone, for whatever reason, stepped in to stop that. In addition, what Vrakthris stated in that Customer Support forum thread also doesn't help your case one bit, and if you were playing by the rules, nicely, Blizzard wouldn't tell you, specifically you, to stop doing battlegrounds and arena—it's as simple as that.

    Stop abusing the system, stop disrupting others' gameplay, stop causing issues, and stop dragging the multiboxing playstyle through the mud... FFS.
