World of Warcraft ReBot Ban Wave on September, 2015

So it seems that there’s a new World of Warcraft ban wave going on as we speak (September 9th, 2015), currently targeting ReBot users. It’s been about 4 months since the last WoW ban wave involving HonorBuddy, with a few bans every now and then, most of which were for “Abuse of the Economy”, which basically means selling gold and even using bots sometimes.

From the information gathered on ReBot’s forum, it seems that the predominant region affected by the ban wave was, again, Europe However, there were US reports as well, and the predominant action against accounts involved in this was permanent ban. While on the subject of permanent bans, you might want to throw an eye on this article we wrote about reducing permanent bans to 6 months.

While I know we all like seeing numbers and statistics, unfortunately we don’t have any at this point, but should we gather any, we will be updating this post. As far as other related statistics to the ReBot ban wave go, it seems that pretty much anything got hit, despite not using VPNs or other IP changers which could flag your account, using any profile and combat class, not selling gold or using other hacks and so on, which leads us to believe that ReBot is detected and the result of the ban wave is not just long time gathering or reports of patterns, reports or profiles. Another fair argument is that it seems there were players who haven’t been using ReBot in the past weeks/months leading to the current ban wave and still got banned.

Our advice, as always, is to stop using ReBot right now if you’re among the (if any) lucky ones who were not affected by the ban hammer, and also not use any other bot software at least for the time being. It seems that lately none of these programs are safe, and that Blizzard is conducting several large ban waves throughout the year, and that so far no particular 3rd party software has gone untouched.

This is one of the ban mails used to inform players involved in the World of Warcraft ReBot ban wave:

Account: WOW1
Type of violation: Using third-party software to automate gameplay

This account World of Warcraft has been closed following the discovery of the use of unauthorized programs.

Such programs (referred to usually as “bots”, “cheats”, etc.) or that automate the game actions to the player and provide unforeseen benefits. Such actions undermine attitude to the game from other players and seriously affect the balance of gameplay.

Blizzard Entertainment reserves the right to block access to account for the actions of this sort without prior notice, as reported in the User Agreement World of Warcraft:
Blizzard Entertainment: World of Warcraft Terms of Use

We take such cases seriously. The decision to close the account was made after a thorough verification of relevant evidence. Support will not be able to cancel the measures taken and may leave questions unanswered about the appeal. Further information can be found here:

with respect,

    I was permanently banned for this today, no priors no nothing. Heard similar stories?

      Actually, yes. I honestly don’t believe they look into prior offenses when it comes to ban waves, since the bans are issued automatically for most of the affected players. Manual bans sometimes tend to be a bit more lenient, such as 6 months or even 3 days.

    Hey, I was banned and received the exact message, is it permanent ban or lesser one? I used ReBot as a fishing bot for 2 hours then uninstalled it, unfortunately they managed to get me as well…

      It should say in your e-mail if it’s an account closure (permanent ban) or a lesser one. Make sure to check your Spam folder as well.

      Like to know this as well, i might choose “20 letters”, as i don’t have much money, i’d like an 80% guarantee.

        We’re sorry, but we can’t guarantee anything nor offer percentages, because every case is different.

    Hey!

    I got banned a week ago for using 3rd party software. Perma ban. Is there a possibility that a letter of your team can change it into a 6 months ban since Blizzard cancels few of my tickets ?

    • Admin January 19, 2016 at 5:43 am - Reply

      Hello! A single letter, no. Especially if they already started cancelling your tickets. That makes it even more difficult. I recommend the Advanced package at least.

      • Charhob January 20, 2016 at 7:04 pm - Reply

        Unfortunately, they started to read my tickets again ?!?
        I am going to buy a advanced package, since i heared so much good things about this side 🙂

    So my friend got banned for gold selling, after that i bought his account (he had alot of mounts). Is it still possible to get the account unbanned? And how often do you get a gold selling account back? 🙂

    • Admin February 29, 2016 at 2:59 pm - Reply

      Hello! Yes, there’s always a possibility to get the account back.

    I\’m thinking of buying your service. after buying premium or the 20 letters service, how will the whole thing work? give you previous tickets etc with screen shots so you can construct an argument?
