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.
