    Exclamation People are getting banned for no reason/ bug. Help us.

    As you may read on the official forums, people are getting banned for no reason, or hopefully because of a mistake. If you got banned, then post as well. The more people who joins the choir, the harder it will be to ignore.

    Can't post links, sorry - (eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/9397029689)

    Yep, it's a PQR banwave. Your buddies were cheating.

    Blizzard probably has enough of some people cheating/doing illegal things in this game. If was with them I'd do the same.

    whats PQR? guessing some bot program?

    anyway, most of the people who get banned deserve it, but also blizzard sometimes catches the wrong people in their banwaves
    Too cool for a signature

    A quick google suggests it's a 3rd party program that runs your rotation for you.

    Yea I've been seeing posts from PQR users that they've been hit with 72hr bans. Blizzard must have stepped up Warden the other day.

    Apparently it's a rotation bot. OP, you and your friends will not gain any sympathy from me. Botters suck. They are a plague.

    Well if I had been using a bot, then I'd know the risk. But in this case, I have NOT.

    Looked it up and it appears to be a program that just runs your rotation for you. So you'd hit like cntrl-X and then it would just start going or something like that.

    Seems to have just mechanized the "one button macros" that people used to be able to come up with.

    This is assuming you're not bullshitting us.

    Just a note to point out that a 72-hour suspension for using PQR is not the same thing as a ban. It's a slap on the wrist.
    If you have anything to contribute to a thread topic, please do so. Discussing moderation or calling out specific people is against the rules and makes a post liable for an infraction. Please report problem posts. If anyone is unclear about the rules please read our FAQ. Thanks.

    Lol 72 hour ban for botting, should be perma ban. I remember in vanilla/early TBC I got a ban for cursing, was a few hours maybe 3 IDR.

    This pretty much sums up my thoughts on it. A 72 hour 'ban' is a warning, not a ban.
