How to Reduce Your WoW Permanent Ban to 6 Months

Not everytime you get to overturn a WoW permanent ban to anything less than what it is, and since this is the reason of ban waves, we’ve decided to come up with a little tip for you guys out there who gave up on their permanently banned accounts. Currently, as I’m writing this post, there’s an on-going Honorbuddy ban wave which has been handing out 6-month suspension to over 100.000 users of this 3rd party software.

Anyway, as Sephirofl said on ownedcore as well, this is a great opportunity for everyone who got permanently banned (especially before the Honorbuddy ban wave) to appeal their suspensions and ask for at least a 6-month ban instead. We had clients permanently banned prior to the current ban wave which we simply could not unban and yet, during this event, most of them got their suspensions reduced to 6 months, and since Blizzard is barely throwing any WoW permanent bans nowadays, maybe this will work for everyone who has been slammed with the perma-banhammer.

While this is not an ideal situation and it might not work for each and every account, we still strongly feel that this is a good opportunity for you to retrieve your long lost and permanently banned WoW accounts!


All in all, we hope you find this tip useful and we would be very pleased to hear that it has yielded good results for you as well, and please feel free to let us know how it went for you by dropping a comment below!

      While we really cannot promise anything in regards to your particular situation, we have dealt with such cases in the past and we’ve been successful in a fair amount of them, so the call on this one is of course, entirely yours, assuming you’d like to purchase our services. As a free tip, be polite, respectful and kindly ask for the same punishment everyone is getting nowadays, since you’re just as entitled as them to be granted a second chance! Good luck and keep us posted! 😀

    I got perm banned on a main from the rebot ban few weeks ago and they wont reduce it to 6month. I opened many appeals and they all get deleted without an answer.

      Sorry to hear that. That can indeed happen in some cases.

    I have used honorbuddy for years. I was banned in the march banwave and got back 9 months later. After just 1 month I got a 18 month ban.. What are the chances an unban letter will get it unbanned?

    • Admin December 17, 2015 at 1:47 am - Reply

      Hello! Just one unban letter will probably not work at all, since this is your second ban. It’s possible to get your account back if we send more letters, but your chances have decreased a bit, since, like I previously said, this is your second ban, which also came pretty quick after the first one. We can only try our best, but we can’t guarantee it will work.

    Hello! I got permanent ban, but i didn’t use a bot… It’s my first ban and i my computer got hacked and i find after the ban some bots on my computer… Is there a possible? 🙁

    • Admin January 8, 2016 at 5:40 pm - Reply

      Hello! Yes, there’s always a possibility, even when talking about LoL. Since this is your first ban, and if you truly have been hacked, then your chances are higher than usual.

    I was also banned on January 6 ( the worst part is that it was my birthday)
    And I got a perma ban for using a bot…..
    I have to say that I already talked to 2 GM’s online, the first one said that she was going to send the account to get unbanned, but since nothing happened, I opened another chat and the guy told me that it was banned for good…..
    Is there anyway I could get unbanned or atleast do some time instead of perma ban?
    Please help, really want my WoW account back!

      Hello! We’re sorry to hear that. Usually, appealing to the ban yourself can decrease your chances, but that also depends on what you’ve said. We managed to overturn many perma bans, so there is always a chance. If this is your first suspension, then that’s some good news to start with.

    Well hello, my WoW account got perma-banned a week ago and it is my first ban for (idiotically) using a fly hack which I only used 2 times in a bg I sent in an appeal but i lied through half of it in panic -.- They responded saying their opinions still wont change due to multiple reviews and they locked/closed the ticket before I could even get in a response. Do you know if they still look at your closed tickets to compare to new tickets? And what are my chances of getting it unbanned?

    • Admin February 1, 2016 at 12:14 pm - Reply

      Hello! We don’t know for sure, but they might look at the old tickets if they decide to give you a proper response. If they just close them, then they don’t read them, we believe. Your chances were affected because you already talked to them yourself, so that will make things harder for Sephirofl, because he won’t be able to make a proper strategy from scratch. The good news is that this is your first suspension, so they might go easy on you.

    I got a permanent ban on my wow account more then a year ago, wrote them many messages trying to get it back and now they keep saying this is the third time while the first two times were in 2005 and 2008 so they are not unbanning it so I wonder if you can make a difference or not

    • Admin April 19, 2016 at 1:28 am - Reply

      Hello! Well, since this is your 3rd ban and you also contacted them yourself, your chances are not that high. Nevertheless, an unban is still not impossible.

    Ok so my account was banned back in late 2015 and when it was banned I made up a fake story about my email and wow account being hacked and I told them I found a key logger and stuff in my computer and my anti virus deleted it, i found that story on ownedcore and then that didn’t work, so about 2 days ago I tried again and I told my friend from Florida to access my email so it shows up on the recent activity and I live in California, I then told blizz that they hacked my email again recently and I submitted the picture of the recent activity but they still said they came to the same conclusion and anymore efforts toward appealing the ban can result in them not answering. I just want to know if you guys have a good chance of helping me or not.

      I was banned for fly hacking once btw but I have other wow accounts attached to that one that was banned for botting

      • Admin May 12, 2016 at 5:48 pm - Reply


        That’s quite a strategy you’ve performed there :D. Yes, I believe there’s still a chance, but a smaller one, though, since you already talked to them yourself several times.

    I was recently banned for my guild name being inappropriate, but it wasn’t even that bad. I had too many past suspensions though which lead to this one giving me the account cloture. I’ve already made 1 appeal and they didn’t do anything so i made another appeal and still waiting for them to respond. I wonder if you can help me get my account unbanned

    • Admin June 8, 2016 at 11:22 pm - Reply

      Hello! We can definitely help you, but we can’t guarantee an unban. The fact that you already appealed yourself and also had other suspensions in the past, will decrease the unbanning chances.

    Hello, my account blocked a year ago to forever by selling gold. you have a chance to remove the ban or change in 6 months? If you can do it, how much will it cost? (This is my first ban )

      Hello! Yes, there’s always a chance, but it depends on one’s case; every case is unique, even though they have their similarities. You can check our order page to see our packages, details, and prices.

    Hiya, my account was also banned a while ago. In 2012 I believe. It was banned because I bought gold.. and probably because I traded gold to a friend (after getting an ok by a GM to trade that gold with a friend). 700k gold. Within a week both my friend’s account and mine had been permanently banned. I have asked them to review my ban if possible but they say they will not… This seemed very unfair to me. It was my preBC account too, which which got 4 legendaries when they were current content, including TF.

    I was banned back in 2011. At that time was I deployed overseas. I spoke with blizzard and told them that I have not played since then. They will not lift my ban. Any advice? I was never banned while I was playing and I believe my account was hacked while I was gone.
