    I'm glad they're banning them. I hope they lose all their gear, rating and points.

    The problem here is they aren't only banning win trade teams. They are banning people who also have got caught facing exploiting teams who are just trying to play. My friend received the ban and I know for sure he has never win traded, but when playing high rated (2300+) you face those teams all the time and there is nothing you can do about it and they are banning them. It's messed up but I guess its good they are doing something at least :/

    I reallyyy doubt that. I played with him all the way up to 2200 and after that I dropped out and he did them with his guild. Hes the only one who got banned out of all of them and hes only played with me and them. Also was the only one over 2400. Idk if that has anything to do with it..?

    Quite a number of these teams banned didn't cheat, but got queue'd up against wintraders and ratings are artificially inflated because of this.

    Seems legit. You just made a new account so you can post hidden about "your friend"

    Its a script, they check high HIGH rbgs teams, that use no cooldowns (as far as I understand from the info so far). That is not the way the games work, you can't just go against 2400rated teams and win without using any defensive or offensive cooldowns.

    Nonstop posts for months about how many win traders there are in rbgs. Blizzard starts handing out bans and all of a sudden everyone is posting how innocent they are, and it's those "other" people that are win trading. Seems legit.

    Yea... because legit players are getting banned for this. I was one of the people crying about blizzard not doing anything about win trading, and I ended up banned. Blizzard need to sort this shit out, I have played over 500 legit rbgs this season, and I am stuck with a 72h ban so I miss raid week.

    Jahmilli was banned as well, and he has not win traded. Blizzard is basically banning random people.

    No. The problem is they took the wrong course of action. They hotfixed it so that wintrading is no longer possible this week. All they had to do was reset the rating, and everyone would be on a level playing field again, without wintraders. Instead, they chose to ban players, many of them innocent.

    Innocent? Here you are guilty until proven otherwise

    well apparently if you don't leave and report the other team for wintrading/exploits they can ban you.

    This won't solve anything. Banning and resetting everything all the time just repeats the cycle. The real problem is that this game isn't worth being competitive about. That's why there's so much win trading and cheating going on.

    People who win trade aren't necessary bad people. Sure they're cheating but for what exactly? To achieve rating? Gear perhaps? Prestige in an online game? If you stop and think about it all none of it really matters nor does anybody actually care.

    From the looks of it it's all wintraders and anyone who has faced them. Which is good to clear out the cheats. Bad for those who actually RBG and unfortunately come against these. Shame, always wanted RBGs to do well, unfortunately from what I see high end is just wintraders, and now a forced thing to get conquest caps and elite weapons easily.
