Some people having more than you or putting in the time to learn and farm doesn't mean the economy is terrible.

Kill things...as a solo thief. That's a funny joke you made there. There's been inflation and deflation. Currently GW2 is suffering from massive deflation.

You're seeing the game through rose tinted glasses, but I'm not going to argue about GW2's economy, it's not like I can pull up threads from 2012 where there were significant complaints about the barons of gw2 who played the market so well that they had 1000+ gold by manipulating supply and demand on a massive, server level scale.

You were caught hacking, your account was banned. Regardless if you want to hack again or not, you create a second company-wide account and re-purchase the game. Then without hacking, you are banned again.

Do you support the ban?

I don't think we can really give meaningful agreement or disagreement to bans carrying over to new accounts without knowing the process and criteria for the ban.

Presumably there is some software involved that makes sure that there is nothing trying to mess with the game as it runs, but I don't think I would be willing to make that a permanent multi account ban unless it is accompanied by a something like an unusually high number of reports per game.

Also, the process for banning other accounts from one cheating instance needs to be sound, otherwise some legitimate accounts that happen to be in the same location might suffer bans for something they had nothing to do with.
