    Oqueue bannable?

    Mod edit: You're about to read the OP. If your knee-jerk reaction after reading is to open the "quick reply" box and type "OP is just trolling" or any variation thereof, I'd strongly urge you to read this first. Good? Good.

    Hello mmo-champs.

    I just wanted to put this out there so everyone is aware of this. I recently got permabanned for using the Oqueue addon.
    It is apparently classed as a third party program which blizzard so kindly told me after i got my permaban.

    So there i was standing in Stormwind AH and i decided to go walk my dogs, i come back some time later and found myself back in login screen. Cool so my character had gone AFK and got logged out no big deal i thought. WRONG! I could not log back in and it said my account was banned.

    So i immedietly got in touch with blizzard and apparently the oQueue addon is a third party program because it keeps my character from logging out when in AFK mode because it auto accept mesh requests and such.

    I had never seen or heard anyone get banned for using oQueue and i thought blizzard was happy with this addon but apparently not!


    EDIT1: Here is the conversation from the Live chat Game Master i spoke with when i got banned.
    [2:15:16 PM] info: Welcome to live chat with Blizzard Support! A representative will be with you shortly.
    Current average wait time is approximately 0 minutes and 21 seconds.Please wait for a site operator to respond.
    [2:15:25 PM] info: You have been connected with Grucanix.
    [2:15:29 PM] Grucanix: Hi there I'm just checking into your issue now
    [2:15:44 PM] you: Hello thank you
    [2:16:24 PM] Grucanix: Ok, I understand that you were using third party programs to automate your play and keep your character online?
    [2:16:53 PM] you: It didnt play my character, it was Oqueue the addon. you know about it?
    [2:17:32 PM] Grucanix: Yup, that would be considered a bot program.
    [2:17:45 PM] you: what?!
    [2:18:02 PM] you: Wow i did not know that
    [2:18:07 PM] Grucanix: If it automates your play in any way and prevents you from logging off when you are AFK, it can still be a violation of the rules.
    [2:18:45 PM] you: i didnt have a clue, there are tons of people using Oqueue
    [2:19:02 PM] you: you're saying they can all be banned for having Oqueue installed?
    [2:19:27 PM] Grucanix: I can ask a specialist to review your account to see what's happened, but if a violation was detected such as mining or herbing for a very long period, that would be a different matter, and a rather clear reason to close an account permanently.
    [2:19:35 PM] Grucanix: I'll pass that on now so the specialist can check in detail.
    [2:19:52 PM] you: Yeah sure but all i did was standing in SW AH

    I don't know if this is true or not without a SS or anything, but just to be safe I will be deleting it as soon as I get home until we get some clarification. Did Blizz send you an email or anything that you can SS and put in here with the names and important fields blocked out?

    And, let me guess, you didn't take a screenshot of any of this dialog between you and Blizzard?

    I'll get you screenshots!

    edit: all i got from blizzard was that they sent me the original conversation i had with the live chat GM after i got banned

    BS, blizzard even said on blizzcon stage that the future "looking for group" system will be a lot like Oqueue...

    And Oqueue isn't a third party programm at all. At least don't spout nonsense when trying to troll.

    Chances are OP is confused or lying about the reason he was banned.

    It auto accepts friend requests and that keeps you from getting logged out of the game when AFK. That's the exact reason i got banned for it. I know what blizzard said which is why this came as a surprise.

    Yeah we're going to need some proof for this to stay open for very long.

    Blizzard should never be banning for addons. They have addon blacklist files that ban addons - there is no reason to ban the user when they could just ban the addon instead.

    Still not buying it unless there is more proof.

    well using something to stop you from AFKing is AFAIK bannable, so i suppose it could happen, but i don't think its reason enough to stop using the addon since blizzard themselves have recommended using it before. if you really did get banned for it i'd say you're either the most unlucky person ever or lying.

    also ban investigations take a while, not an hour while you go out.
    Too cool for a signature

    I wouldn't mind if they banned people that used auto guild invite addons. Those are pretty annoying.

    I wouldn't worry about it to be honest. The OP is probably leaving out other information and blaming oQueue as it's hard to believe you can be banned for an addon even their blue posters advertise. If they wanted to ban people over it they would've done it sooner.

    Also, auto accepting a mesh request does not prevent you from logging out when in afk mode. I've been logged out numerous times with the addon on.

    proof or im queueing later in oqueue. Provide proof, otherwise I believe you just got banned for something else and are looking for an excuse to blame something else than what you actually did.

    Having been permabanned for third party programs i can say without doubt Blizzard Support will NOT under any circumstances tell you what was detected to ban you no matter how many tickets you open to ask what they found. All they can say is they have conducted a follow up inspection and the account action will not be overturned.
