WoW Weekly Report - Battleground Participation and Account Suspensions

The Week in WoW
The Week in WoW

It's once again time for the World of Warcraft Weekly Report. Every Tuesday morning the report arrives to your inbox, or you can read it on the site. It goes over the details of the last week including blizzard posts, major news events, and what's happening around here at WoW at Ten Ton Hammer. This week we go into discussion about the recent news that Blizzard will be taking action against the accounts of people who constantly attempt to leech honor by idling in the battlegrounds. Alongside that we also discuss the new BlizzCast along with our very own database upgrade.

This last week has been abuzz with one major occurrence and that's the announcement on Blizzard's official forums that Blizzard will be taking action against people who AFK in the battlegrounds on purpose to gain honor. Within seconds of the posting (on the official forums) the community outrage flooded forth with zeal as the community both shouted their support and their anger at this decision. Following the announcement was a clarification that only people who were obviously AFKing to get honor (and to exploit the system) would be the ones suspended for their misconduct.
