It is clear that the gm in question did not even read my ticket as I never once claimed or suggested I was hacked. I was just caught in the autoban crossfire for farming too much linen cloth in westfall to help with the AQ war effort on Whitemane. I was hoping that I would be unbanned by today so that I could raid with my guild since u/Cya_Space_Cowboy experienced a very similar issue and his ban is already lifted, but I guess I got a less than competent GM.
I would like to submit the following circumstantial evidence that shows I was not hacking or botting
I was chatting to guildees and other people farming throughout the day
I was logging on to different characters doing different things when I felt like taking breaks (making bandages on my alt, posting/buying auctions on a separate alt)
At the moment I was banned, I had stopped running back to town and was choosing to watch a mage farm boars for light leather.
I was doing things at different times (for example, multiple times I got distracted and let my void walker sacrifice fall off for a couple of minutes which wouldn't happen if I was botting)
I had a 6 month subscription. If I was going to do anything against the rules why would I risk that?
Given the amount of hours that I have put into this game (over 20 days played) why would I risk that time investment?
For any GM's that happen to browsing reddit and want to help fix this mess, my ticket number is US74671264
Thanks for reading.
- You can get wrongly banned with just player reports. Please be careful, especially when farming a lot [x-post from /r/woweconomy]
- Permanent Ban
- My account was permanently banned without explanation hours after finally finding the shroud mask for my Kappa Container.
