It seems that the banhammer is now in full force over at Blizzard. Currently, Sodah (the guild master on the high end PVP guild Im MVP on Tichondrius) as well as Cdew have been added to the permaban list as a result of account sharing. I’ve read various tweets from these streamers/gamers as well as forum posts and reddit threads that dive into the situation. While I stick by my original blog post I made earlier on the permaban subject, I wanted to go into why I believe the severity is pretty heavy here.
Reckful, one of the top PVP Arena players in the World of Warcraft, was permabanned for “account sharing” on Christmas. A lot of people had sympathized for him and it seems like there won’t be any question in terms of revoking the ban (at least from the conversation over on Twitter). Was the permaban too harsh or did Reckful deserve it at the end of the day?
