Oh good job Blizzard, just one day ban. Economy of wow its devastated. Thank you boosters and multiboxers because you hoard the major part of the economy from servers. Meanwhile all this people its selling gold for real life money just pricing random things at ridiculous prices, just look for random items at action house. Trash items, one herb, one ore or whathever pricing it at 450k, 650k.
Ban should be longer for the first offense, and get even longer for each additional offense. (1 week for the first time, 2 weeks for the second... month for the third, etc).Account should be banned after a certain number of offenses.I will GRUDGINGLY tolerate these in Trade Chat (very grudgingly) but selling boosts in the damn group finder is just over the top ridiculous.
Good :DLet's report THEM ALL
thank you blizzard!
why not just monitor the group forming.. then ban everyone in it, not just the advertiser.. for a day.. and increase penalty based on frequency. A lot of guilds are going to have problems if selling runs for gold is ban-able. That's how many survive.. helps fund the next raid. --I hope bliz knows those content played graphs are going to change a bit if this is true for all running services.......then the world will go upside down... and LFR will get worse, or removed.. and then normal and heroic raids will have 1 to 20 player difficulty/ilvl drop scaling.. and more people would be able to try to content at their own pace and time availability.....and achievements would be account wide...and player power farming like AP and rep will be account wide..... followed by Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!
For the people complaining that they'll just use trade, download an adblocker lets say something like.. badboy.. for the game (and set a key word that mentions boost or similiar) and poof nothing but actual trades on trade! Also you can /leave trade, poof no trade spam at all!This is why Trade is allowed to be used as u can automate removal via addons (as its not a protected channel).But in the case of the LFG tool, you cant see anything or do anything other than report the listing, but you'll have to remove 90% of the LFG tool while looking for a legit group sometimes, and this cant be automated by addons as it is a protected part of wow's code.
Don't you have your on key? Go make your own group maybe? and btw take some of my lvl 104 and lvl 107 alts with you please, i need help on them thanks!
Just one day?
Just make a section in group finder or a system where people can post these kind of things and you solve this bulls**t once and for all
I liked it, maybe they can now start to punish toxic players too...
This is awesome and I love that everybody else feels the same
There aren't more reports of it because they know they'll get no sympathy, something that apparently flew over this guy's head.
I might return to WoW if they do a ban wave for this
I buy boosts all the time but lfg adverts are irritating af... Discord exists for this
I'm curious to see how they're going to handle advertisements for carries in exchange of Twitch following or the like. Too often nowadays are the "groups" with links to streamers raffling out viewer carries - which I also believe fits the description of subversing the tool's purpose.
good. the amount of advertising in the custom group finder has skyrocketed so badly; the last time i did a ha-li farm over half of the groups listed under 'ha' (because i want to target as many different spellings made in a rush) were nyalotha carries or some other carry. I reported all of them, not really expecting them to be dealt with but damn if they don't stop cluttering my group finder! I took full advantage of the option to report for advertising and I fully encourage others to do the same.I'm not against carries or boosts (for ingame gold or irl money, although one of those is against tos so) but the spam made for it is so aggravating. It wasn't even a bunch of groups made by different people, you could tell that they were either a multiboxer listing several groups, or a bunch of guildmates doing the same, because the server name was always the same.
Hell yes tired of seeing these toxic groups destroy this game. hopefully blizz can fix the lfg chat spam,these guys use like 10 accounts just to spam chat with everything they have to sell.
