Today after I went back from school I wanted to play right away. But the login screen said that my account got locked — and then I checked my G-Mail and said that I abused economy. Wait, what? So I made a ticket…
I have just received an E-Mail from Blizzard — and below sums them up.
***Notice of Account Closure***
Account Name: WOW1
This account was closed because one or more characters were identified exchanging, or contributing to the exchange of, in-game property (items or gold) for “real-world” currency. This exchange process negatively impacts the World of Warcraft game environment by detracting from the value of the in-game economy.
I don’t know why I have been suspended for abusing economy. I didn’t do anything that break the rules at all — the only thing I did yesterday was selling Electrified (http://www.wowhead.com/item=67749/electrified-ether) to Auction House and yeah I sold them at normal price so I didn’t cause inflation to the market. Thus, I didn’t trade gold for real money or vice versa also. Last time I logged in was yesterday at 6.30 PM GMT +7. My account DIDN’T COMPROMISED at all also because I have Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware and up-to-date (according to Blizzard’ security guide, this one is one of the best Anti-Spyware).
and here’s their reply. Pretty fast one, I appreciate it.
