World of Warcraft players who are involved in the practice of clearing dungeons for cash are feeling the wrath of the Blizzard ban hammer.
Blizzard is never the fastest to implement penalties for players selling services but at least they have taken action now. According to Icy-veins, players can pay thousands for full Mythic raid clears.
A post detailing the ban action explains who has been affected.
If you see people advertising these services, please help us keep the game clean by reporting them. If you’re unsure, here are some common warning signs:
- A “broker” is offering to match buyers with service-providers. Commonly, a broker will collect real-world currency from a buyer while offering gold to a guild or group that will actually provide the service.
- Someone offering a service is unwilling to discuss terms of payment via in-game tells, and insists on using a non-Blizzard application to communicate.
Both permanent bans and bans of up to eight says are being handed out to the offenders depending on severity.
