    The OP may be lying. However, I've experienced something similar.

    I was recently banned for buying an Inscribed Red Fan for 4000g through a trade window.

    I even appealed the process and was given an automated response stating that they still believed I had been buying/selling gold and/or botting. They would not undo the ban.

    Only after being persistent in asking for further proof of my accused offense did they have someone actually look into it. Turns out you can be a 'false-positive' on their automated banning process/program.

    Guilty until proven innocent.

    I hope the OP can do something about his situation. Blizzard will more than likely win. Good luck.

    I'm not talking out of my arse, the fact you decided to go logical fallacy on people shows how you have something against them.

You'd be better off doing that to EA then Blizzard.

    so, to your credit got fucked because of some guy who was botting but only got a ban for how long? was it a perma ban? i doubt it. but instead of taking it in stride, you go to a lawyer and HE tells you to drop it, and you take that as a threat? a threat of what exactly? and by outcome you might not like means AKA you will lose. plain and simple. you would lose. but no no go on and keep it up it'll make a good puff piece on reddit.

All it took was one call to Activision/Blizzard and asked for the Legal Department. I received a return call from Rod Rigole with in 1hour. Per the EULA you must inform Blizzard's Legal Department and give notice to seek "Informal Negotiations". These can not last more than 30days. If you still haven't reached an amicable resolution, the next step is "Binding Arbitration". At that point, Blizzard pays for an arbitrator in "Your Area" to hear the case. There are no legal fees. This is what you agree to every time you click I Agree on patch day. In the End, the arbitrator is a neutral 3rd party. At the end of the day, I will do whatever I need to do to prove they are wrong. I was not botting, buying gold or anything else. The only thing I did was buy herbs from a seller in /trade.
    If the arbitrator sides with them (99% likely given the terms of the EULA) they CAN ask the arbitrator to award them damages equal to the costs they incurred dealing with your quixotic attempt to "prove them wrong". The bottom line is that Blizzard can terminate your account at any time, for any reason or no reason at all. Under normal circumstances, they would not just randomly kill an account. But if you force them into legal proceedings, they can and will fall back on that. And you will lose.
    All this complaining is simply further proof that Blizzard could send each and every player a real-life wish-granting flying unicorn carrying a solid gold plate of chocolate chip cookies wrapped in hundred dollar bills, and someone would whine that Blizzard sucks for not letting them choose oatmeal raisin.

    This is what happens when you have a passive/aggressive angry nerd who doesn't confront issues in their day to day lives. People like this rage against percieved "bullies" online, but rarely do shit else. This dude is so full of shit.
    Perfect example of why "community" forums are poisonous to the health of a development team. These developers are wasting hundreds of hours trying to stem the tide of incessant bitchery that would never, ever abate so long as these entitled, unfortunate human beings don't get their way.

    Anyway...I don't agree with either you or Blizzard. They are being a bully and you are being a whiner. There are much better ways to deal with this situation

    I feel like someone is breaking the law in there.
    Hey, thanks for renting this flat for 4 years, giving us £28,800, as well as all the minor fixture you did to the flat. Now we are selling the flat and you are going to homeless.

    It is within their right to terminate the contract to sell the flat if it is stated in the contract they can terminate it for whatever reaosn anytime.

    I couldn't go on anymore reading these stupid car analogies people were trying to make. Few things, 80% of the time when you buy a car you take out a loan to get it. Just a heads up it isn't your car it'st he banks car.

    Now if you actually believe this story then I laugh at you. Why on earth would the head of Blizzards legal team be talking to players over the phone about accounts?

    You spoke directly with Rod Rigole? Somehow, I seriously doubt that.

    Even if you did, you simply look like a child who's had his favourite toy taken from him in what you sent to him. The line you quoted from "Rigole" was polite and basically saving you from yourself, IMO.

    You accuse me of using a logical fallacy.. yet you sit there and assume (based off your divine knowledge) that Im a hater. This conversation is going nowhere, throw your buzzword at someone else mate.

    Whether or not the OP's story is true, why do you feel the need to keep insulting him?

    You don't get permanently banned from the game for one little offense such as that. You aren't telling half of the story and only presenting one sided facts. Which is always the case in this situation.

    People never admit to the whole story when they get punished for something they did wrong.
