I’m still boiling over with anger, I can’t believe how angry I am, but turning that anger towards a productive use…
Does anyone know what the punishment is for buying gold in WoW?
I’d be surprised (but happy) if it was a lifetime ban, I expect it would be more like a 72 hour ban.
Many people probably wouldn’t care.
Most of those would be able to pass it off to mates as taking a few days off, or worst case claiming the got down for exploiting the economy ;-)
Daily in-game event
So how about we make sure that everyone knows?
Let’s set up some public stocks in the middle of Dalaran.
Let’s set up a tomato vendor right next to them.
Every night at say 6pm, Blizzard can fill the stocks with goldbuyers and we the public can go, purchase tomatoes and sling them at the gold buyers.
Their names should be clearly visible… as should their guild tags until the are /gkicked.
After they are /gkicked the guild tag should be replaced with a new tag for 30 days
Ohh on a positive note, they get to keep all the tomatoes that get thrown at them
