Wrongful Ban of my Account by Arena Net
Posted 01 February 2013 - 01:03 PM
As the title suggest, I have been wrongfully banned by Arena Net for using 3rd party program to play Guild Wars 2.
I have playing Guild Wars 2 since the launch of the game without using any forms of 3rd party programs. To date, I still do not own a legendary weapon and is still farming dungeons (mainly COF) for gold in order to purchase a precursor.
On sunday last week, I found myself unable to log into the game due to the termination of account. I was stunned as I did not use any hacks at all but was accused of using a 3rd party program.
I read on the forums that there are many people who were wrongfully banned via Arena Net's automated system for banning players. These people were advised to file in a support ticket to Arena Net.
Hence, I proceed to file for a support ticket hoping that they will review my case as I was wrongfully banned. However, they have reverted to me the followings in 2 separate occasions.
"This account has been closed for using an illegal third-party program. I want you to know that we take great care when analyzing accounts prior to termination. We are both diligent and conservative in determining which accounts are using these programs, and we only terminate an account after we are certain that such use has occurred. "
"As previously indicated, this account will remain closed. All reviews have been made. Further inquiries about this account may be set to Closed without response."
I am very disheartened by these response from the support staffs.
Firstly, I was wrongfully banned.
Secondly, I have requested for evidence of my 'hack' and also showed my willingness to give my cooperation in this matter to support my review. However, no evidence were provided to me.
How could they tell me that a review have been made and it is still tell me that I am using a 3rd party program? To me, who is an innocent party and just want to play the game (esspecially with the new contents recently), I really feel that it is unfair and I want some justice here. I want to appeal for a thorough review but the support mentions that "inquiries about this account may be set to Closed without response".
Please advise on what I should do. Thank you.

If you create a support account here, you can submit a ticket and ask for a response. If you are persistent (and innocent of any wrongdoing), you will probably get the ban lifted. My husband and I were wrongly banned and had our bans lifted.
