I was the one that reported the alleged multiboxer (which I hope didn't get the same treatment I did without due process). You can't possibly believe I'd go about reporting someone for what (allegedly) appears to be multiboxing and then go and do the same thing. Not even I am that self-destructive. After having finished taking the necessary screenshots, I proceeded to log out from one of the accounts, as per the given instructions. There's a requirement of 20 seconds to log out of a character, unless you're in a rested area (inn/city), as I'm sure you already know. You can check the timestamps on this and you'll see that a total of 17 (seventeen) seconds passed between my last message and yours when you said you already went forward with the decision to ban me for three days (even though you said that you wouldn't, there being mitigating circumstances and all), and 19 (nineteen) seconds passed between my last message and yours. During that time, I was in the middle of the process of logging out, as instructed ("please relog with one of the chars"), but wasn't even given the time to do so. Of course, the logout timer expired, a second after receiving the last message from GM Smaily, and I got logged out of the mage, only to see that I was banned on the ret. And that's the story of how I got banned for multiboxing, without boosting myself through dungeons, without boosting myself in any manner, without having a higher lvl toon on follow, without using 3rd party software, without anything that would even imply multiboxing per se. A 3 days ban for a first time offense that doesn't even qualify as an offense. The same thing would've been achieved by having my brother's laptop on the same desk that I have my desktop on, and running an account on it and playing on one, while afking with the other, IN A ZONE A QUARTER OF THE CONTINENT AWAY. Yet, somehow, doing the same thing on one machine is bannable, and perfectly okay, at the same time, if done on 2 machines. I wonder what's the stance on portals/enchants for alts... But that's another question, for another time, and another adventure on this Polack heaven! Oh, and if it's still unclear for anyone, the GM came to talk to me on the ret (lvl 13)... I don't think I would've even gotten the chance to explain myself if I needed to relog from it and log on another account with a lvl 15+, which is why it was actually fortunate that I had the mage on at the same time to whisper him asap. Cheerio, sweeties! \o. https://imgur.com/a/cuF8XAM (for context)
  2. To Whom It May Concern: https://wow.gamepedia.com/Area_52 https://wowwiki.fandom.com/wiki/Area_52 For obvious reasons, I won't go further into detailing exactly which those "NUMEROUS" spots are, or their locations, as they should be common knowledge after 12 years, unless I'm specifically asked to further educate certain members of the community ;) Through time, there have been some changes to Area 52, but the gist of it remains, most notably the fact that the safespots are still there, and you can go double-check that for yourself. Aside from that, the Area 52 Death Machines aren't around any more, some bruisers STILL aren't where we're currently having them on the server (namely the bruiser on top of the inn and the one on top of the building with the arena vendors, which, I guess, were a custom implementation here to help against safespotting, in which case they should be removed in the following patch as they're not blizz-like, unlike safespotting), and guards MOST CERTAINLY DO NOT climb the walls of buildings =)) like a staff member said they should, when mind-controlled and reset (again, those bruisers shouldn't even be there in the first place, and, even if, they're not spider-bruisers ;)). Now... You could say that I'm starting to notice a certain pattern of getting targeted every other day, and even though I'd normally brush it off as just a coincidence, it's slowly starting to shape up as harassment, and I'm not okay with that. It'd've been fine if it was just me that's be targeted, but it looks like my guild mates are receiving the same treatment, and that's coming right after the whole guild fiasco which has yet to yield a resolution to my complaint. IF, and only IF, there would've been any hint of evidence that what I or anyone else were doing was against the rules or expected behavior, the offenders should've been presented with a thoroughly documented account of exactly why that is, and, thus, be officially warned that if further actions occur, then, and only then, consequences would follow. It's probably not my place to tell anyone else how to do their job, but if it were, you can rest assured I'd be having a few long chats with a few people that might benefit from having a thing or two to learn from me. Thinly veiled threats, unbacked and unwarranted temp bans or renames do not a qualified figure of authority reflect. I'm making this post in the hope of having shed some light on the matter for those that are less perceptive of the obvious. It could also be used to help the staff address inquiries into it in an exhaustive manner. Please, please, for the last time, research first, inform second, threaten after, and only as a final resort, take action... If there's still any unclarities, ASK, and I'll try to explain to the best of my abilities... Until then, happy camping! \o. Oh, I almost forgot... https://imgur.com/a/6xvMUsl (album) ^ not 30 seconds after... seems like double-standards... oh, well...
  3. After today's earlier server restart, our Game of Thrones tribute guild got renamed to <Strawberry Puppy Kisses> which really cramps our style, considering it was originally called <Wight Power> and made a lot of sense since in the show the Night King's army is a powerful force to be reckoned with. To further align ourselves in theme with our favorite TV show and fictional world created by George R. R. Martin and brought to life on-screen by showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, we even went as far as rolling undead characters in-game and customizing them accordingly to look like the wights showcased in the TV series; that deep runs our passion for both WoW and GoT! Now, I understand some concerns were raised within the Netherwing community on both Horde and Alliance sides, and I'm here to lay them to rest once and for all! To my dismay, I have learned that certain demoralized individuals that contacted me about getting recruited, during the last couple of days, got the wrong idea about what our guild stands for and took it upon themselves to spread misinformation and lies after being rejected. I have made it abundantly clear, time and again, that we are a very progressive guild in the sense that we try to be as inclusive and diverse as possible, our guild members' backgrounds ranging across many belief systems, political affiliations, genders, and, believe it or not, even races (yeah! both in and outside of the game). Our strive to be as inclusive as possible extends even as far as being willing to stray from our GoT-fanmade-guild principles and accepting characters that aren't forsaken (undead)! As a result, many, if not half, of our guild members, are, as we like to call them, non-wights (blood elves, orcs, trolls or tauren). The reason for it is that they're all fans of the show and answered favorably when asked if they're wight, and the truth of the matter is that whether or not they're undead is ultimately irrelevant as long as you can be dead inside and we'll still consider you a wight. However, there is one thing that we will not stand for, and that is racism and discrimination! Many of those that contacted us about recruitment spouted racist slurs and profanity that I will not get into at this current moment. Suffice it to say, they were swiftly set straight and put in their place. Apparently, these individuals took to global channels after getting rejected and started spreading falsehoods about our guild, and even after calmly attempting to defuse the situation and explain to everyone what they were doing and how their trolling was damaging to our reputation, it did become tiresome after a while, but we held on strong... Although not being immediately apparent, at the time, it is clear to us that there is a conundrum posed by the fact that the words "wight" and "white" are homonyms, and that although they're spelled differently and mean different things, they read the same. That, followed by the word "power", ended up rustling some feathers, which, in turn, must've amounted to a pretty substantial number of complaints to our address. I empathize with the people that have had to deal with the mater in question, respectively, members of the staff, but must unfortunately insist on the fact that we've been struggling with clearing our name and addressing most of these issues both internally and externally, handling every grievances and disagreements as they arose, all the while being dismissed by a staff member when contacted for a mandatory guild name change and attempting to defend our claims. Frustration is no excuse for ignorance, nor should it be acceptable behavior on anyone's part. This only serves to lessen our efforts to better ourselves as a community, first and foremost, in times when we need to stand together, now, more than ever! I have annexed a couple of screenshots (https://imgur.com/a/oJrG740 & https://imgur.com/a/EFU8dDo) for context and am available anytime for further inquiry, as I'm sure any guild members are, as well. In conclusion, I'd like to also make you aware that the "Netiquette" is something retail prides itself in upholding it to the highest standards, yet, somehow, there's: - a guild called <Wight> on EU (https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/guild/eu/thunderhorn/wight) - 3 characters called "Wightpower" on EU (https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/search?q=wightpower) - 4 characters called "Wightpower" on US (https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/search?q=wightpower) - 53 characters called "Wight" on EU (https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/search?q=wight) - 95 characters called "Wight" on US (https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/search?q=wight) - a guild called <Whitepower> on EU (https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/guild/eu/nathrezim/whitepower) - 2 characters called "Whitepower" on US (https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/search?q=whitepower) - 4 guilds called <Wight Power> on US (https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/search?q=wight+power) - actual in-game Wights of several types (https://wowwiki.fandom.com/wiki/Wight) So, if people would stop grasping at straws, they'd ultimately see we've literally done nothing wrong, and would love to have our original guild name back with no excuses necessary or any hard feelings... Thank you for your time and understanding!
  4. Thanks for clearing that up! ;)
  5. Apparently, I recently managed to get some alliance players' panties in a bunch, and, as a result, I got a visit from your friendly neighborhood GM Smaily. Posted pictures of the conversation, but here's a link to the album, as well, just in case: https://imgur.com/a/r0vxrAw From what he's telling me, there's a bunch of *invisible* flying guards that aren't working properly and that only he can see, and it turns out that PvP-ing in Cenarion Refuge is therefore a bannable offense ("abusing guards and safespotting"). Now, I started doing a little digging further into the issue, and found no evidence of any such *invisible* flying guards that I seem to be abusing: for those of you still rocking a subscription on retail, you can go check it out for yourselves (I've made the trip not half an hour ago, there, and found NO trace of any such thing). The only thing I could find is more evidence backing up my claim, which is, that it's intended gameplay and I shouldn't've been bothered for it. Here's a couple of links from back in the day (sorry for the shitty quality) that support what I just said: NO TRACE WHATSOEVER OF ANY *INVISIBLE* FLYING GUARDS Furthermore, this little link, right here: https://wowwiki.fandom.com/wiki/Cenarion_Refuge Which states: Basically legitimizes the whole deal. Now... I'd like to state that no further PvP, on my end, in Cenarion Refuge, has taken place since; but I would love to get a reply from a staff member other than Smaily (so as not to be biased) of his take on things, giving me (or not giving me) a green light to continue doing God's work, since I'm obviously doing nothing wrong. TL;DR version: * the same NPC functionalities as back in the day on retail (and currently) apply (check retail) * alliance keeps flying lvl 70s and ganking from on top of mushrooms, avoiding guards (which, AGAIN, is intended), so why shouldn't I? * what's up with the *invisible* flying guards and do they even exist? * may I resume doing God's work, since I'm doing absolutely nothing wrong and everything I've done has previously been thoroughly documented? Thank you for your time, and keep PvP alive, sweeties! ;) P.S.: I know about the existence of flying guards in other cities, but NOT in Cenarion Refuge
