Thread: Cedega WoW Users Get Banned

    Default Cedega WoW Users Get Banned

    Pretty interesting that Blizzard banned over 50% of the World of Warcraft players that used Cedega to play. They were banned for using "third party software designed to automate". With the help of transgaming, the users are now appealing to Blizzard.

    More information is @ http://transgaming.org/forum/viewforum.php?f=51

    Well Blizzard is going to help un-ban all the accounts once Transgaming and Blizzard figure out why this happened in the first place. I stopped playing a while ago so good thing this happened now so I don't have to work to get my account back online.

    Default Blizzard Responds to Allegations

    Two links, same message. Blizzard says they've tested Cedega and they are not the cause of the bans.

    Interesting thought here. Do they even know Linux exists?

    Of course they do. They WoW servers run Linux, and there was a Linux Client for WoW that was scrapped during Beta stages.

    I know if that was me affected, I'd be pissed. I used to be hardcore into MMO's

    But... Blizzard -allows- WoW through Cedega? That's interesting... I know someone from Lineage 2 once got banned from playing the game through it. I am unsure if that was ever fixed though.

    It's pretty lame for any company to ban people from joining online games just for using a non-M$ O.S. Pffft...if this happened to UT2k4, they'd lose hundreds of thousands of players *instantly*. Epic is wise, Blizzard is dumb. I hope they rectify the situation, for their own sake.
