With the RMAH now in full swing, there was an interesting post from a player who had purchased a second account to gain extra slots for the sole purpose of utilising the RMAH. According to the player, the account was banned by Blizzard stating ” this account has recently been involved in actions deemed inappropriate for Diablo III by the In-Game Support staff of Blizzard Entertainment”.
The player in question had not played a character on the account just created a level 1. We don’t know the full story, but oddly enough according to his post, neither does he because Blizzard state in the support response that “we are unable to discuss the outcomes of our investigations due to privacy concerns”.
If Blizzard are contacting an individual to tell them their account has been banned, they are contacting them through the email the account was registered under so why there are privacy concerns seems a bit of a mystery. It could also be a case of the individual being suspected of off-the-wall bidding in an attempt to get more money from his own auctions.
Has anyone else taken this route and purchased another account for the sole purpose of using the RMAH on that second account? If so, it may be advisable to at least level up a character on that account just in case.
