SO here is the timeline that I know of for sure.
Yesterday morning I log in check WvW for a few poi’s I need this is around 8am est no issue. I get home from work around 9 pm est, by the time I get situated at home its a little after 10 pm. When I go to log in I get a message that my account has been banned. It seems to be a standard response when this happens to someone.
I have a pretty normal routine, I play m-f somewhere between 9pm-1am depends on my work day, saturday I will play a little longer normally after 7pm and sundays is pretty varied as far as times go mostly evenings. I will also play on Wed. when I am off from work.
So I start to think back of what have I done or been accused of well I have no illegal software on my computer. The only ingame program besides Guild Wars I run is Vent or TS. So I continue to back track my last few days, I know I always complete my daily stuff for the laurels. I try and get either a FoTM 10 or 20, I keep an eye on dragon timers so I do they whenever I can. I tried the cursed shore farming for gold/eq but that is way to crowded and I have a hard time landing enough hits to always get some loot. So it has to be from karka farming, I have run there a lot in the past few weeks for two reasons I need powerful bloods for Incinerator and the shells sell for good money. Now we normally do this with a group of people from our guild one night we had two whole groups of 5 running that area. Sometimes when we have under 5 people we will pick up people in the zone to round out our group. My game play has increased over the last few weeks because I enjoy playing this game so I play it alot and getting the material and gold you need for a legendary requires you to grind a lot of gold/material to create it. I have several people who I play with everyday online that I also speak with on vent/ts that can also let you know I am not a bot.
Now I don’t know If I will get my account back or why I was targeted for this? Did I kitten someone off farming karka because we had a big group and they feel left out or did someone kill a mob and they got no loot. I have no idea all I do know is that I am not a bot all of my logged hours on this game have been me sitting at my computer doing the work.
I have been on this game going back to GW1 and all the expansions, played this during beta weekends. I have referred a few people to play this game, I have never used a bot to do my work for me. Would it have made it easier sure but I want to know that when I make my legendary I know I did it legit. I have no problem giving Anet anything they want access to with my account or computer to see I have not used a bot.
