What does not belong in any other section does probably belong here.

Botting in my case. I assume it is connected to my massive purchases of profession mats from temporary Stronghold vendor. If I highlight wanted item and then click "Buy" while confirming purchase with "1" on keyboard I can make 2-3 purchases per second. And I made thousands of those purchases. But no bots were involved.
i think everyone got the botting message, and they may be using botting generically, seems like the christmas ban said botting also, and some of those was buying from gold spammers
I don't think I was doing anything that warrants a ban. I don't buy from goldsellers, I wasn't sending people ADs using auctions, I wasn't trading any items with players directly, I was not one-shotting bosses using exploits, I wasn't multiboxing...

The only thing I can think of that could have triggered their anti-bot scripts are those purchases.

I got banned too. I haven't heard back from support as to why yet but I have never botted, don't account share or dual box so I am at a bit of a loss. I was all set for a nice weekend of AD grinding too :(

yea one of my friends got banned with her 8 toons-account. Tell me about botting with 8 toons right?
This stuff is just nonsense. And in the meantime, some people cant even log in the game because of DXGI issues.

I dont know if your GF is willing to lose a few minutes to do so but submitting a ticket mentionning her inactivity for that long whereas she got banned might sure help the hundreds of those that got the unfair one lately.

I've not declined any chests as far as I know. The only thing I can think of is that I use a keybind (/gotocharacterselect) to logout when swapping alts to invoke and do professions.

This could be a case of using the same IP for accounts. Afaik they ban what they think are corresponding accounts as well.

That's not the case. I'm one of the perma banned too. My account was pretty much legit, haven't logged on for a while (like a few months). So it can't be anything fresh. Prolly they fucked up those autobanning scripts and the banwave hit a lot of innocent players. They must've taken some casual ingame behavior as botting, dunno what it might have been tho.

Pretty much everyone was spamming purchases in professions vendors. I didn't get banned so I'd assume it was something else.

Requires membership, but I'm assuming there are multiple people affected.
