or blizz should give you your account back and unban it doh.gif The expansions are supposed to be a 1 time fee, back before they had the battle.net accounts way too many accounts got hacked and stayed banned. Expansions should not have to be re-bought. Is that $50-$60 is that through blizzard? because I thought their new expansion alone was $50-$60?

as a new account you are considered a new player... why would you think expansions shouldn't have to be rebought? If you get banned on origin and lose your bf3 and expacs or any steam game for that matter and you want to play? well you got to buy it all again.

It's like losing your car in a wreck and going well I already owned one, I shouldn't have to buy another doh.gif

I just played casually. Never used any cheats or w/e people use in WoW. I'm guessing it got hacked then banned for gold seller spamming or something maybe. I quit just after they started changing accounts over to battle.net. I don't know if they purge accounts after a certain amount of time or what. I know other MMOs have in the past. Either way they didn't seem to want to do anything but give me copy/pasted responses about how to reset my password. After about 8 or 9 emails to them I just said screw it. Don't get me wrong, if I was a cheat in games like this and then got banned I could totally see sucking it up and buying everything all over again.

The fact that a player gets hacked when they arent playing the game? I would consider that an ENTIRELY different situation. It is based on blizzards old and bad security. No new account should have to be created. It is the same person of the account. It is basically like someone stealing your credit card and buying a brand new TV. You will not be penalized for it. doh.gif

Was there a recent expansion? Meaning a lot of lower level characters and returning population?

Hmm maybe I should it it a try...I also only played the game for a couple months many years ago, but I have been bored near to tears lately with gaming. It would be awesome if I could get into a MMO again.

The only thing that turns me off from playing a long standing MMO is that so many players have far too much money and inflation kills the markets. So if a good item comes up for sale they can start dropping ridiculous amounts of money on them making so even players that have played for a year don't have a chance.

ok so this then


Some one stole my car. I already owned one, so I shouldn't have to buy another. doh.gif

If your account got stolen pre-battle.net days you either had keyloggers or went to sites you weren't supposed to and didn't take necessary precautions needed to secure not only your wow account, but any thing that is on your computer including bank, credit cards etc. No one broke into blizzard and said LET ME HAVE ALL ACCOUNTS. No it just doesn't work like that, all the hacks were from keyloggers and phising emails that people thought were from blizz but weren't.

Won't work, I've tried it. They will tell you it will be "escalated" but you never get a single email from Blizzard.

I tried that but all this was right when D3 came out and the wait was hours. I pretty much forgot about it til here recently with the new xpac. I'll probably try it again just to see if they will do anything. If they do I'll probably buy the new xpac and see how it goes.

I got hacked at the 'come back to wow for 2 weeks free' just before cata. I hadn't had a sub for a while before that and somehow they got my account info and were able to use my 2 free weeks for gold farming. I talked to a gm and was able to get everything back though... some people have a difficult time with gm's when their account gets banned and others get luck (I was lucky). funny thing is the person who was using my account was farming and selling ore. so when I logged in there was about 30k gold and a ton or ore which I mailed off to a friend before they reset my account. so I got a little bonus when I came back lol

I HIGHLY recommend a mobile authenticator. it saves ur account like no other! and it's free thumb.gif
