Hey everybody,

Just as an fyi, my WoW account mysteriously got banned yesterday for "exploitative behavior", namely "abuse of the economy". I honestly don't know how or why it happened, as I had been on not even 12 hours before I got the email. (Before you ask, I do use a mobile authenticator.) In any case, I appealed swiftly and got it unlocked already, and everything (guild bank included) appears to be untouched. Changed my password too, so hopefully this won't happen again.

I have my guesses on how this came about, but Blizzard didn't give much detail beyond what I've already said, for me to know for sure. Something I will scratch my head over forever, I suppose. Everything's fine now, at least.

Hmm, do any weird AHing recently? OR! OR ororororor! Maybe it has something to do with you being overseas?

I know I didn't do any AH stuff the day it happened. As for the overseas thing, I don't think that had anything to do with it either--at least not directly. I did talk to someone who I occasionally see playing in the same common area I play in, and he said he had a similar thing happen to him recently too. I don't remember the specifics, but it does give me somewhat of a lead. I'll do a little research and see if I can find anything. Or, if I see the guy again, I'll talk to him about it some more.

(Incidentally, I haven't used one of the public gaming computers to play WoW since this happened, either.)

Yeah, that's what I bet it is. The address looked foreign and they jumped. :)

Yeah, they were probably trying to head off a possibly hacked account. I mean, an account that's suddenly accessed from a different part of the world is probably a huge red flag to them.

Incidentally, I just withdrew a bunch of money from the guild bank to buy another bank tab, now that Mists is coming soon. Hopefully that won't result in another wrongful ban. ><

Why would it? You're the guildleader!

A guild leader withdrawing 9k gold from the bank, together with earning the guild an achievement by buying said tab would not (or at least should not) raise eyebrows, but I don't know how such information gets their attention, or how selective they are about it, or if and how much it's all automated. For all I know, they may just see "Someone withdrew 9000 gold from that guild bank" and their computers scream "HOLY COW SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY, ROFLBAN!!!111".

Not saying it will happen, just wouldn't be surprised if it did.

You're just being paranoid! Look how many tabs I've bought! heh
