    WoW is what 14 years old, probably 100million + characters created? You can't make normal names anymore. On RP servers sure, I totally agree names should be that way but good players don't play on RP realms.

    Suspensions and forced name change don't happen by magic, Blizzard isn't monitoring the names of players 24/7. Enough people have to report the name for the automatic system to kick in and then it gets dealt with: if someone's name offends you, report them. Nothing will happen if you don't.
    I don't know the recipe for success, but I know that the recipe for failure is trying to please everyone.

    Sounds like you're trolling. Even adults like jokes or things that make them laugh. If dick and pussy jokes weren't funny, Dave Chappelle wouldn't be as popular as he is. And if you're gonna rag on someone, at least fucking spell things right.

    you do not get bans for first time offences on bad names.
    you only get them if for example you.

    A. get told to name change, and change to something else that is bad, and do this a few times
    B. get told to name change, and change right back to what you were before.



    seems like you did one of these.
    I mean, other than me saying I have never been asked to change this characters name before, I do not see any way to refute what you are saying. This character was named Hack on Echo Isles server before I moved to another server with friends, that name was taken so I named it another name I have used in the past. I had no idea the name was anything more than a character in a movie. I have been naming characters a variation of the name Pooti for a very long time, and nobody I have had contact with have ever said that it is anything offensive. I guess now I know. I suppose I am lucky I did not have my account closed for my ignorance.

    mostly its who gets reported and by how many people.

    often boost sellers you see in chat get mass reported by other boost sellers this gets the person instantly silenced from mass reports.

    Anyone could just ticket your name, or just tell 20 of their friends hey report this guy for lulz, and action will be taken.
    Fan reaction was muted, but fan's reactions at BlizzCon confirmed Diablo Immortal will be well received by players around the world.

Urban dictionary ( which I just looked at now after being banned ) only lists it as a reference to the movie, or as being slang for "pretty thing". I think this is a very bad direction for Blizzard to move to, straight up banning an account based on someone disliking your character name.
    This means you've already had previous actions taken to your account.

    Hahahaha. Laughing at the slang, not your ban, OP, my condolences. It just reminded me of the scene from That 70's Show.

    Eric: Tang and sausage? Isn't that a little racy for breakfast, mom?
    Kitty: Just take some tang and go.
    Hyde: If I had a dime every time I heard that.
    Kitty: What's wrong with tang!? Growing boys need tang!

They'll just go on the next day and they're still going to have the same name so what the actual fuck is the point? It's like being sent to the corner for time out.

    I had a friend that had a character named Saltyballs once. Same thing happened to him but instead Blizzard forced his name to be changed to some random dumb sounding one. They didn't even let him choose another name. Imagine being the douchebag reporting names to either be a troll or because they're actually offended by it. Imagine how pathetic his/her life must be.

    Blizzard can be such sensitive little pricks too. Always concerned with being politically correct all the time so they don't offend all the crybabies out there.
    From their own code of conduct :

    Names are subject to the same rules established above. Any name the player has the ability to customize—such as player names, BattleTags, and guild names—must be appropriate and inoffensive. Any name that violates our standards or disrupts the community will be changed, and additional limitations may be placed on the offending account per our discretion.

    Take note that acceptable names are determined by player reports and Blizzard's decision, and role-playing servers may have distinct standards for using game-appropriate names.
    I'm not sorry if an adult who thinks with an 8th grade mentality makes a name gets forced to change it.

    It's not even about being sensitive, it's more about telling people to grow the fuck up.

    Obviously there is either something else, or that was a mistake. Just contact support and it will be reverted. Worse case you might get something out of this if it was a mistake, but that is certainly odd, are you telling us everything? Not judging here, it´s just really, really odd

    that is the point, dude is saying he is too old to argue, so that means he should be too old to go by such an inmature name.

    I’m only aware of them banning people over name changes if they issued a forced name change multiple times and you (multiple times) used a name that went against their TOS instead of correcting it.

    Bans can be temporary. Hence why we have the term permaban.

    OP: Get over it, you named you character after slang for pussy in a game with a policy prohibiting such things. Change the toon name when your timeout is over.

    It was a movie name? I guess I do not see how that is immature. I do not even see how it is offensive, as slang is so subjective standard. At any point in time a word could be a slang word for something that may offend. I admit my ignorance. I am more put off at the punishment for it. Also, I apologize if I upset you if I flippantly said I was too old to argue in a video game, but I play the game to escape, not to engage people in arguments. I suppose I should not have framed it as being related to my age.

    funny you can get banned for a word that is a slang for vaginas but in the italian realms I see plenty of names being outright blasphemous and they do nothing.. Also who the hell gets offended if someone names himself after vaginas , like grow up lol.

    This! How did the obvious not get stated until page 3? Sounds like the OP is a little higher in the penalty volcano to get a 24 hour suspension (a ban is permanent).


    With the choice of name, the fact that you have to make yourself known in-game (in usually douchey ways) to make enough people report you, and the previous actions on the account, the making of a thread to whine about account actions....it's obvious this is a well deserved account action.

    welcome to WoW 2020, if enough people report you, you can get banned. But hey see it positive you can clean your house in this 24 hour window
