can assure you this.. that bad taste lingers and bad karma (see what i did there?) spreads. my guildees have vowed never to spend another dime on gw2. well, actually we're all waiting on ESO beta invites to save us from the boredom ;). sucks when you play MMOs habitually hehe.

good luck OP. hope it turns out better for you than for us.

 

It's things like that which show a severe negative bias that tend to lead be to call BS on the entire post. This gives the strong impression of someone making crap up to attack the game for whatever personal reason.

My words are not here to sway you,they are here to make you understand.

Yea post on their facebook, their reddit. Just ask why the you were banned. I'm thinking you have an email addess similar to another person who is a known gold seller or something.

This is not a game.

Where are the screeies you promised?

 

Sounds like several things: 1. you got hacked.  2. You were botting and got caught. 3. You swore in game and you got reported. I could think of more but why bother. You haven't really posted the truth and from your post you put it all on A.Net, now while they may not have the best support, they certainly don't do things without a specific reason.

 

OP trying being more truthful in your posts.

To get banned without a word, i can only imagine that the payment did not get through, or was made using a fake/stolen credit card. Most, if not all companies permaban for things like this (chargebacks included). Might have been a payment error.

That's a really good point. We'll definitely need to see the alleged list of reasons.

If you do post anything on their social network pages, make sure you keep it polite!

I posted some comments, which got deleted and I got blocked from posting any further messages!

You pick one line out of an entire post and point at that being negative when the whole post is there to explain that they screwed up banning people for no reason and admitted to it!?! Does it not then follow that there is a small possibility that they could have screwed up in this case as well? I am not saying they did, all i am saying is that if it has happened before, it could happen again and a post like this on any other forum would just be considered that of a raging fanboi trying to defend the indefensible, but i would never stoop so low as to suggest that.

The other thing that seems to be missed by a lot of posters here is that they guy isn't entirely disputing the ban, he is just trying to find a legitimate avenue to be able to get to the reason and find out if he will get his account back but is being blocked at every turn from doing so, so instead will have to go outside of what would be considered normal avenues for any other game to try and get an explanation which has to be considered pretty poor on the customer service front which ever way you look at it.

It must be Thursday, i never could get the hang of Thursdays.

Have been in WoW myself since launch and the first couple of years were painful with exploits and gold sellers, but it is nothing like that these days and the last experience i had like this was a guild mate having his account hacked and exploited. We reported the exploit as we weren't getting answers from him in chat (and we knew he was away), the account was locked by a GM and when our guildie got back and contacted Blizzard he had his account re-opened and all of his gear back within two hours and our vault items given to our guild leader a couple of hours after that, that is the big difference.

Not that i knock F2P, but i have been watching these forums on GW2 since before launch and the customer service there just seems terrible to say the least and is one marked reason why i have stayed away from the game so far.

Sooooo, you never played the game, never even experienced anything about the game yet you feel you should write something.

Kudos

If i were basing my playing on your logic i would never play another MMO ever. And i do have 10+ years of MMO experience (vastly in P2P MMOs) to know what they actually do (or what they dont do to be more accurate).

Just to mention that your lovely Blizzard emloyees thought of nice little way to earn a bit of buck on the side by selling account info of accounts that havent been used in a while to gold sellers.

Theres a saying about stones and glass houses.

Enjoy.

Are you surprised? The Internet is full of people talking about stuff they don't have the start of a clue about, and not only about video games, this forum is no exception... many posters here are so full of "it" that it's a wonder they manage to tolerate their own smell anymore. Just like you have people giving opinions about movies they have never seen.

Everyone on the Internet is a virtual rocket scientist ;)

Playing now: WoW, Landmark, GW2

Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO and GW2.

I know this is not an official support forum but I have no other place to go.  See below.

I have plenty of MMO experience and this has to be the most retarded and frustrating experience I've ever encountered in an MMO so far, save for maybe SWG launch back in the day.  Even my indie MMO experiences were never this bad.

I bought the GuildWars2 Digital Deluxe edition 2 days ago from the official site and played the last couple days pretty straight.  Level 19 Sylvari Ranger on Sorrow.  Talked to maybe 5-10 people tops (mostly trying to find some areas on the map).  Did a lot of exploring mostly during that time (mainly in the grove).  My character's name is not obscene or anything sketch.  Single-word name.

After a break (and working to pay the bills), I came back home tonight to jump on and get an error window saying that my account has been terminated for a bunch of obscure reasons (see image attached) that gives me no insight to the actual reason why.

Now, I wasn't super upset or anything yet, just shocked.  Stuff happens right?  Maybe hacked or wrongly accused. Off to the support site I went to submit a support ticket.

Can't log in with my account to the support site - says my account is disabled.  WTH?

So the $80 game account that I paid for 2 days ago is banned / terminated for no specific reason and I can't even log in to the support site to submit a ticket?  The only thing I can do is log in to the account section, which does absolutely nothing for my situation.  Can't access the official forums either.  Now what?

I'm able to create a new support account so I can at least submit a ticket to ArenaNet.  I fill out the ticket and submit it.  Get the confirmation email.  Come back a few hours later...

Can't log in to my new support account to check the status - disabled.

Are you f'ing kidding me?  Is this a conspiracy or something?

I was able to submit a 2nd support ticket without registering but it seems like they are just deleting my tickets or something.  Somehow ArenaNet hates me and I've only played their game for 2 days!  If this keeps up and I can't get in touch with anyone I feel like I'm going to have to get a refund and all that time I've already spent is wasted.

I can honestly say that there is nothing that I can think of that I did during these past 2 days of playing that would be considered bad in any way, shape, or form.

--------------------

I'm looking for any help that anyone can give me.  I have both incident support numbers which I will provide below.  I'm posting this on another popular GW2 forum site because I can't use any of the official avenues to get support.  If I could get on the official forums I could ask a mod / red name.

Here's my support tickets:

[Incident: 130206-000289]
[Incident: 130206-000775]
Account Unique Name: Rytz.1836

If anyone can pass this info along to a mod on the official forum or some kind of official support staff, I would greatly appreciate it.  Please PM me with any info.

Thanks in advance.  It's almost 4am and gotta be up in 3.5 hours.  I'll check back later tomorrow.

I have never jumped off a skyscraper without a parachute either, but from the information i gather it is a pretty bad thing. Saw a guy on TV the other night explaining what King Richard III was like, but i am guessing that he never met him and don't even get me started about all those people that babble on about the kindly guy who made all those loaves and fishes.

It may shock you to find that you can actually gather a pretty good concencus these days from reading, listening, looking and generally opening your eyes and ears....does it make me an expert, well no, but then i never claimed to be i was just pointing out that you were defending poor customer service based on a falsehood about another game makers product. 

You are right that i have never played the game, but as i said i have been reading the forums from before release as i was interested in buying the game but due to the mass of negatve posts and stories of poor customer service (not just here BTW) i decided that not unlike jumping from that building it may not be such a good idea for me.

I am also assuming that after the puritanical rant about me, you also have solid evidence to back up the claims about Blizzard employees selling accounts?

It must be Thursday, i never could get the hang of Thursdays.

Can't log in with my account to the support site - says my account is disabled.  WTH?

So the $80 game account that I paid for 2 days ago is banned / terminated for no specific reason and I can't even log in to the support site to submit a ticket?  The only thing I can do is log in to the account section, which does absolutely nothing for my situation.  Can't access the official forums either.  Now what?

I'm able to create a new support account so I can at least submit a ticket to ArenaNet.  I fill out the ticket and submit it.  Get the confirmation email.  Come back a few hours later...

Can't log in to my new support account to check the status - disabled.

Are you f'ing kidding me?  Is this a conspiracy or something?

I was able to submit a 2nd support ticket without registering but it seems like they are just deleting my tickets or something.  Somehow ArenaNet hates me and I've only played their game for 2 days!  If this keeps up and I can't get in touch with anyone I feel like I'm going to have to get a refund and all that time I've already spent is wasted.

I can honestly say that there is nothing that I can think of that I did during these past 2 days of playing that would be considered bad in any way, shape, or form.

--------------------

I'm looking for any help that anyone can give me.  I have both incident support numbers which I will provide below.  I'm posting this on another popular GW2 forum site because I can't use any of the official avenues to get support.  If I could get on the official forums I could ask a mod / red name.

Here's my support tickets:

[Incident: 130206-000289]
[Incident: 130206-000775]
Account Unique Name: Rytz.1836

If anyone can pass this info along to a mod on the official forum or some kind of official support staff, I would greatly appreciate it.  Please PM me with any info.

Thanks in advance.  It's almost 4am and gotta be up in 3.5 hours.  I'll check back later tomorrow.

 

[I guess the image didn't originally attach - sorry about that]

 

Rytz, this begs the question... what was your character's name?

Oderint, dum metuant.

1 week later my guildees got a email from Arenanet basically saying: "wooopsie, hehe. our bad.

Atleast Arenanet could have given them 50gems or something for their inconvienence.. but no, theyre not the classy kind.

can assure you this.. that bad taste lingers and bad karma (see what i did there?) spreads. my guildees have vowed never to spend another dime on gw2. well, actually we're all waiting on ESO beta invites to save us from the boredom ;). sucks when you play MMOs habitually hehe.

good luck OP. hope it turns out better for you than for us.

 

It's things like that which show a severe negative bias that tend to lead be to call BS on the entire post. This gives the strong impression of someone making crap up to attack the game for whatever personal reason.

You pick one line out of an entire post and point at that being negative when the whole post is there to explain that they screwed up banning people for no reason and admitted to it!?! Does it not then follow that there is a small possibility that they could have screwed up in this case as well? I am not saying they did, all i am saying is that if it has happened before, it could happen again and a post like this on any other forum would just be considered that of a raging fanboi trying to defend the indefensible, but i would never stoop so low as to suggest that.

The other thing that seems to be missed by a lot of posters here is that they guy isn't entirely disputing the ban, he is just trying to find a legitimate avenue to be able to get to the reason and find out if he will get his account back but is being blocked at every turn from doing so, so instead will have to go outside of what would be considered normal avenues for any other game to try and get an explanation which has to be considered pretty poor on the customer service front which ever way you look at it.

Yes. It only takes one slip to show your true nature or intent.

 WOW, GW2 fans are just too much. They now see everything as a conspiracy to destroy thier beloved game... smh...

I want to be Uncle Owen again.

heh yeah man and all the ususal regulars are here to minue one or two of them accusing the OP of lying and having to prove himself with more screenshots etc. Sometimes I really want to just delete my account here because these same guys here go unmoderated daily .

Nobody posting here can destroy any game, all are just nerds who spend way too much time on gaming forums (this includes me). So you can dismiss the conspiracy theory, in the grand scheme of things, we are all... nothing important, even though some like to think they are. Some seem to think that just because they dislike a game, the game is doomed - and they just can't let it go, they need to convince everyone else they are right, so they go on a crusade against . Pathetic is my word for those people, and pity my feeling... if they have nothing better to do in their life than bashing video games day after day, instead of eventually play games they actually enjoy, they only deserve pity because they are pathetic beings with what must be very boring life if it leaves them so much time to post crap on forums about <topics> they dislike so much.

It can't be denied though that a lot of posters write utter nonsense, misinformation and lies in order to still try to discredit a game (not only this game, same is true on other game's MMORPG.com forums), and that their intent is often made obvious by just one or two sentences of their post.

Playing now: WoW, Landmark, GW2

Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO and GW2.

My GW1 account was banned last year without giving a reason to me.

To unban it, i had to send the GM

- a picture fom my box

- a picture from my codecard

- a copy of my passport

- a copy of my creditcard

- a report on what exacly has happend

- a reason why i think my account should be unbanned

- ... i forgot the rest, there was more

 

There is good games that i simple refuse to play because of the shitty company behind.

Would Anet have handled my concern properly, i would own GW2 this day.

Now, ill never own a game anymore were Anet is involved.

So it is with Gala/gPot or that Face of Mankind people or whoever failed to handle my online being with the needed responsibility.

 

Im not throwing valuable livetime into a project anymore, that could fell on my back after too mutch time.
