I ask this because my account has recently been banned for 'Abuse of the Economy' and I've been using a VPN to log in from my university where WoW is blocked. I haven't bought gold, received large amounts of gold or items from anyone and honestly cannot figure out what else might be the problem.
When using the VPN it logs me in from a Chicago server and I live in NY so I'm wondering if this is the issue. Has anyone else ever had this issue and if so were you able to dispute your ban successfully? Is it better for me to call blizzard support and talk to someone on the phone and try to explain or should I submit an appeal online? Or am I just SoL? =/
I did read through the ToS this morning and didn't see anything regarding using a VPN, but perhaps I don't fully understand how a VPN works or what it is, any insight anyone can give would be very much appreciated =/
