So, unless you opened a ticket, reporting the names and asked to adjust your rating accordingly, you need to accept that some may call you a cheater too.
Ignorance is not an excuse.... Not knowing the law/rule doesn't prevent you from punishment. The law/rule still exists. Plus, in Europe even more than in the USA the citizens duty is to actively prevent crime.. No way in hell would they win a court case, cause the case wouldn't even make it to a court date. Frivolous lawsuits are just that, and will be dismissed before the courts wasting their valuable time with such stuff..
It's obvious, the innocent aren't that innocent. They never reported the cheating teams from which they had a benefit. They neglected their duty. And I am pretty sure in either case they were happy to get a free win.
Well 72 hours is quite a joke. Strongly doubt they will get everyone anyways.
LOL 72 hours is nothing. If you are so "pro" you will get 2400++ again in no time.
PS Suck to be caught? Delicious wintraders tears.
Why you think the Net was born? Porn! Porn! Porn!
because if they stated in the lua/tos that they can take alway all your money from you bank there allowed to do it?

This is the worst move I have ever seen blizzard make and they love to make dumb calls so that's saying a lot. There are a lot of players (myself included) who would never try to win trade or exploit but have received a ban because blizzard made a flawed system and can't just admit their own mistakes so they blame the players. They need to fix the problem, which is win trading, not just ban all the players who tried to play the game legitimately and got stuck in games against players who were abusing the broken system. What they did is dismissive of the real problem and insanely disrespectful to all the real players who put in their time to earn a high rating. I mean we already put up with their piece of shit broken game and now we get banned just for playing their shitty game. I can't wait for a new game to come along and dethrone this shitty company so we can all move on to something worth our time.
You should change the title to "Blizzard banning almost everyone with a high rating in rbg's", because that's what actually happened here, it wasn't fair and it shouldn't be applauded.
We played against 2,7k wintraders and won, they lost 24 at most and not 100 rating. This alone invalidates your whole "I am such an expert and knows how the game goes!".And yeah, games that are played offline and streamed worldwide constantly are definitely more competitive over games that are basically restricted to online only. More people = more competition. Wow's pvp has too many people below 1800, some people 1800-2.2k and a fraction of the playerbase over 2.2k. Therefore, its easy prey for people who are generally above 2.2k to win trade instead of taking a risk to lose a game vs a lesser team and lose 100 rating over one game. Plus, a lot of the same people you compete with often become your friends and sometimes you rather just help each other out.
As for the rest of your pointless post. What kind of offline games are you refering too, Tekken maybe? Offline games usually have a far smaller community, they are far less evolved and widespread then online games are. The vast majority of recognizable games now and in the past have been online and not offline games such as Starcraft + Brood War, SC II, Counter Strike in all its incarnations, MOBA nowaday and quite a few others.
Gaming tournaments in generally aren't taken seriously as of now by the vast majority of people and it will take quite some time till they eventually are.
Cheating isn't something exclusive to online or just gaming, doping is a widespread problem in sports. If people see a chance to cheat many will do so, especially if they otherwise wouldn't be competitive. You're claiming that the vast majority of high rated players are cheating, for SOME this might be the cast, but in most cases BAD or MEDIOCRE players are to ones win trading.
They are the ones who otherwise would have no chance ever to get the rewards PvP offers such as titles, gladiator mounts, elite gear and so on. Skilled players usually end up with those anyway and will in the vast majority of cases beat a worse group.
Sure you don't. No way you'd ever do that. You made your rank on your own! And no you obviously do not know how these things work. You don't even know about rating loss and gains for that matter. Either you are a wintrader yourself or you're an PvE hero.Oh yeah I don't win trade. I just know how these things work.
The players who were caught in the net who did not win trade but gained points from win traders are more than likely banned due to not reporting each incident. I personally reported the player(s) I could see even if it was briefly through the ticket system and avoided a ban, yet a couple of people whom I play with consistently were. The difference was reporting; I reported and they did not.
P.S. I'm not saying this is all but it is at least 1 factor.
i know 2 wintraders both over 2.6k and none of them got banned.
if they starter permabanning wintraders instead of the silly 72 hours they're handing out, it would probably stop <.<

humans. so rethink if your a realist or not. because atm you look like a ostrich. if it doesn't mappen in eu/us it isn't there.
So right there, if you experienced such team and you didn't report it, you deserve to be sanctioned just as much as those from said teams.
Win trading went viral basically. That can only happen if no one fights it actively. There is simply no other way for it to exist and become widespread. The entire community benefited from it. Some of that community got the hammer now, and an outcry happens...
The innocent aren't innocent after all..
Hopefully 5.2 will eliminate this entire wintrading business like everyone says.
