More Bannings For World of Warcraft

Wow banningsBlizzard Entertaiment Inc the maker of World of Warcraft (WOW) has continued banning player accounts this week. They have banned  more than 5,400 players and suspended 10,700 for breaking the rules. Blizzard has stated that most of the bannings were brought to their attention by other players.


Unlike may other companies like Sony Online Entertainment who took that same stand with Everquest have now realized that they cant stop the growing market for online goods and have established their own official marketplaces for Everquest II where you can buy and sell game good. Blizzard believes that such actions negatively impact their realms economy and players overall game enjoyment.


Blizzard has more then five million subscription playing gamers and they have made it no mystery that they frown upon massive marketplaces for selling characters, gold and items they also do not like the use of third party software.


According to Blizzard, many of the banned players were using third-party software to “farm” the game’s gold and other items. “Farming” in game pretty much means that you play for the sole purpose of getting items, gold and then selling them for real money.


Blizzard also stated that they will continue to aggressively monitor players accounts on all realms.
