    Well you sort of do lose out on honour. The honour you get from 10 people in WSG is so dog that in the time you camp for 20 minutes you could win a whole 2 matches and get the win bonus.

    I don't see how it's fun to absolutely destroy people with basically no opposition whatsoever. There's no challenge in that. It's the most fun when both teams are close to each other's skill level.

    You have to be careful with Blizzard. These days with Activision calling most of the shots they ban for anything and everything they feel like. Got banned in Wrath for making enough money to buy the 25 Saronites I needed for Shadow's Edge. They said I was exploiting the economy by buying low and selling high. (Hello Capitalism?)

    A technicality is all they require to make your life a living hell.

    While it'll eventually one day bite them in the tails form of negative reputation, it sucks for people who have friends and play the game for them. Especially when some of the Devs clamor on to level 1 alts and troll the hell out of your forum posts. My advice to people is to watch the game credits and if you see Blizzard Devs working on other titles, in 10 years- buyer beware.

    That's how it used to work. Each subsequent kill on the same person within a short time period would yield less and less honor.

    If you got banned for this my account would have been at least ones in 8 years. Yet it has never been so i don't think this is true.

    When I've lost three or four battlegrounds in a row due to team ineptitude, I relish the opportunity to graveyard camp the enemy team if the opportunity should arise.

    That being said, I don't AFK in the corner of the map in those situations... I'm usually the one death gripping them off their GY.


    -Going out of your way to help the enemy team win.
    On another note, I've actually had this happen. Blatently. Some idiot joined into a level 90 BG wearing level 80 greens (all of the same name) and did nothing but rush into mid and die repeatedly. Reported for both helping the enemy team and suspected botting.

    There's also the chance that they'll break the GY farm and comeback to win the game.

    Granted it was only a 3-hour ban but it still sucks that this would happen with a service I'm paying for. Opened a ticket but of course it will not get answered for a couple days. My main concern is that this ban will not get erased from my record. I've been doing BGs in this game for years now and nothing like this has ever happened.

    I'm wondering if this happened to anyone else? How does Blizzard usually handle these occurrences and are they good about removing bans on an account history?
    Well, im not the big PvP fan. But, ive done some BGs every now and then. And from what i see, without judging you at all. Are you yelling at people, calling them retards, or idiots or something?

    Do you have a /spit macrod in to ever offensive ability that you got?

    Stuff like that is what i see in almost every BG i join.
    That and bots

    Again, im not judging you for doing that. I just hope to see some ban waves going on soon, against people doing stuff like taht
    Main(s) since Vanilla: Enha sham / Hunter. Alt since TBC: Warrior.

    they wouldnt ban you for afking without messaging you first if you were online. At least thats how they did it when i was coughafkingcough . I caught the message and just responded, and all was well in the world of afkcraft.

    I haven't seen that in years. Since they added the auto-report function.

    Were you grinding AV a lot during the AV CTA and defending towers a lot?

    Happened to me, I was not AFK (And never would AFK because I'm paranoid as hell) but apparently people see my low damage (Defending towers but no Horde come, so no damage) and start reporting me AFK. During the weekend I got the debuff a couple times and had to run out of the tower just to go fight and clear it. Never got fully kicked out of the game, but still got the email.

    If you've genuinely done nothing wrong, contact them and you'll get unbanned.

    just going afk from time time probebly not.

    but auto run then(alt tab)release spirit(alt tab)then auto run again till the bg is over. then do that a few matches and you will have a ban for using a automatic running addon or program. happened to me a few times till i got a final warning......

    and blizzard should really flag a account for a xh suspension. and let it kick in when you want to log on. not when the gm logs on.
    so funny to see a 3h ban at night time...

    iam gonna assume you were afk leeching and boting in these bgs which is good becouse it shows blizzard is finaly taking action to this behavior thats been ruining bg after bg.

    they have been taking action all the time. its just most people don't tell it on the forum.
    i had a sustension in tbc for doing it.

    Yeah I got banned twice during AV weekend, once for 3 hours and once for 3 days. I was taking my DK directly to my boss (I'm alli) and just death gripping people into the room. But people always say 'report the people up north', mainly targeted at AFKers in the cave, but I always get reported, too.

    Never been banned before this week, Blizz must have changed the way to hand out bans.

    Yeah this happened to me as well some time in wotlk I believe, 3 hour ban because I got a certain amount of deserter buffs during a day.
