OP  8/29/12 5:08:43 PM#1

...the real life story of an honest gamer.

 

Very excited for this game!  Yes I preordered, and yes I sat clicking on "Login" almost for 5 hours on headstart day!

After 2 days of gameplay - nothing extrodinary, just some xping, and lvl 80 PvPing - I got kicked from the game.  When I tried to log back in, it said I was "blocked".  A friend of mine told me to visit a site where I read I wasn't the only one blocked.  I read further and found out that these blocks were made for either A) your name was a cause for the infraction. or B) your account was hacked by a gold seller.

First I would like to say that either reasons is not cause for blocking an account for 3 days.  

Why?  Well if your name is an infraction, let the player change it or maybe Anet should have blocked it in the first place from being able to be made?  Now if your account was hacked.. "how" is the first question I ask.  I reformatted just a week ago, so please don't tell me I'm full of viruses and key loggers that hooked these gold selling guys up with my password specific to Guild Wars 2.  So how else did they get it?... and many more like me had theirs hacked.  How did this happen?  In my opinion, you would have to ask Anet.

 

So today is the 5th day... 3 days of being blocked.  I start the client, and blam!  "Your account has been permanantly banned."  Why?  No idea seeing as I changed my password for a 2nd time.. again unique to GW2, and I haven't been permitted to log in for the last 3 days.

 

Expensive $70 lesson - don't invest in ArenaNet or NCsoft in the future.

They really are trying to rule with an iron fist.  In the long run I think they'll do more damage than good.

 

You should contact them and inquire why you've been banned.  Don't they tell you why?  They said they state why there are bans.. so shouldn't you know the reason?

Yes - their Support has yet to get back to me reguarding the Blocked issue that has come and gone.  I had to read it on another site to find out what was happening.

And yes on being Banned... but being launch week and all that, I'm sure it will be a long time before getting a reply.

The message that popped up when logging in was very vague - you have violated the code of conduct...

It's much more likely that you just don't want to publicly fess up for whatever you did to get banned.

I think a lot of damage has already been done.

I had the name Sir Pokesmot in GW1 for 7 years.  I fear to make the name in GW2.

Maybe try posting here to ask why are you blocked?

http://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/yxx3m/suspensions_for_offensive_names_and_inappropriate/

They have been being a bit heavy handed with the blocks, but haven't heard so far of anyone getting permanently banned for name issues (I guess it's possible for char issues but would have to be very bad for that, I guess), so my first guess is that your account was hacked somehow.

 

What can men do against such reckless hate?

Is there not a phone number you can call?  If so, why wait around for an email response when you can get someone to help you immediately?

They do seem pretty quick to ban people.  I guess it's a lot easier to do that when you're not expecting 15 dollars a month from them.  Out of curiosity though, what was your character name?

What was the character's name?

I read about someone named 'Cnut Pounder' moaning about unfair treatment earlier (not that I'm suggesting this relates to your situation).

Why did you not contact the company directly, To get first hand information on your account?


First I would like to say that either reasons is not cause for blocking an account for 3 days.
of course it is. They should suspend your account untill you content them. I cannot think of any real life scenario where this wouldn't not happen.


Why?  Well if your name is an infraction, let the player change it or maybe Anet should have blocked it in the first place from being able to be made?

Yeah sure, design an algorytm to filter them so people can only get more creative at bypassing said filter with different spellings.


Now if your account was hacked.. "how" is the first question I ask.  I reformatted just a week ago, so please don't tell me I'm full of viruses and key loggers that hooked these gold selling guys up with my password specific to Guild Wars 2.  So how else did they get it?... and many more like me had theirs hacked.  How did this happen?  In my opinion, you would have to ask Anet.
Javascript within the webbrowser? There are plenty of user created situations which could lead to account hacking. I bet you visit lots of gw2 and gaming fans sites right?

 


So today is the 5th day... 3 days of being blocked.  I start the client, and blam!  "Your account has been permanantly banned."  Why?  No idea seeing as I changed my password for a 2nd time.. again unique to GW2, and I haven't been permitted to log in for the last 3 days.
Did you actually contact arena net regarding you account suspension? Maybe you should of herd what they had to say?

Im not a poster boy for arenanet, but they do seem to be a legit company. I think if were gona play the blame game its not all arenas fault, and in shades of gray.

Why did you reformat your hard drive? Is this common for people? I've never had to do it on any computer I've ever had. I would think only the most extreme reason would need to do it.

I'm extremely glad too. I really don't care to see people running around with variants of "Lovestospooge" everywhere spamming up area / server chat with memems and Alienware and "WoW was the first MMO" chat constantly. I really don't think they're coming down too hard, all you have to do is not be an idiot and you're safe. Seems way too hard not to do these days for some people.

 

Edit: Forgot to add, the Reddit page where AreaNet is answering questions on why people got banned was the reason I bought the game on launch instead of waiting a bit more for the reviews to come in. Glad I did because so far the game has been amazingly fun.

Played: EQ1 (10 Years), Guild Wars, Rift, TERA
Tried: EQ2, Vanguard, Lord of the Rings Online, Dungeons and Dragons Online, Runes of Magic and countless others...

My friend named his character "Rensha" and was banned, his account was never hacked.

 

I think ArenaNet might be a bit trigger happy with their bans.

If you read through their reddit post on bans most of the ones banned until further notice are the comprimised account ones. Account closed till you contact us. Suggest you should try that.

Are you sure it was because of the name?. I'm not saying it's really the case of your friend, but on the reddit thread there were several cases of people asking why they were banned saying that they didn't see a problem with their name... and the response was that the name was OK but what caused the 3 day banning was something they said on chat.

That said, it might have been a mistake as well, there was one case on that reddit thread of someone that reported someone else and was banned by mistake, they reverted the ban and banned the correct person.

EDIT: BTW, it might have been the name, though it's kind of a long shot (no pun intended): http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Renshaw

I guess it could be a good idea to check urban dictionary before naming any char.. :)

Here is a crazy and whacky idea, it is so left feild that some might think it is to extreme, but how about reading up on naming conventions first before you create a character called "boobsniffer".

reviews are !@#$ing stupid. Play what you love.
