      Good evening,
      Good morning,
      Good afternoon everyone,

      It seems like Honorbuddy was detected, we are not sure, but looking at the BAN THREADS, we think that its the most likely option atm.

      We are sorry for all your lost WOW Accounts, hopefully you can use them again after the 6 months ban is lifted. I have read here in the forums a bit, a lot of the accounts where 10 years old. This is a pity. We always say, do not use your valuable accounts as the risk is always there.

      Some of us seem to forget the Gilder times, or were not around in 2006-2008. With Glider you knew that there where 2 software detections a year, it just happened.

      With Honorbuddy you thought that we are unbeateable, we never thought that, we've succeeded since 2010 - Honorbuddy had not a single software detection. It seems there is one now.

      It also seems that Blizzard was really pissed at our first win at the court of appeals in Hamburg. It might have been coincidental. Nothing is for sure.

      You ask yourself what happens next? For now we closed our Honorbuddy Authentication, when we know any more details we will inform you.

      I am not really sure why Blizzard - while being against Bots ... - has only temporary closed the accounts, for 180 days.

      My speculation is, that after 180 days it is 13th December 2015 - and a new WOW Add-on will be released. Who knows... the fact that Blizzard on the one side says "Kill all bots", and on the other side temporary closes the accused accounts, does not make any sense to me.

      Update May 16:
      We want to be offering Honorbuddy as soon as possible. Right now, we have no news for you. Please do bear with us - immediately we have news we will share it.

      it might be the age of the account that is the factor. blizz figures that on a ten year account, the player will definitely be back in 6 months. almost giving them something to look forward to. where a new botting account just gets thrown away.

      someone, somewhere in blizz decided spanking a 10 year account was kinda harsh for all the money they made off the players. so someone may have suggested a 6m ban.

      Funny how they waited until after their financial call to pull the trigger.

      Wow. First time I was banned for using Honorbuddy.

      Last time I was banned was back in '06 and we all remember what happend then...

      Got a new account within 5 minutes and now I'm waiting for HB to return to stealth-mode and get back online!

      :)

      I got banned but it doesn't look like a 6 month ban, it just said my account is closed. Im not sure if this means I will be able to get back on in 6 months or if they just banned me forever, I don't understand how it is legal for them to scan your computer for software, even if we "agree" to their TOS, aren't there laws against this in the US?

      Thank you for admitting it is detected and it is a ban wave. I'll get a character up to 100 again, play the 6.2 content and be happy for a week then quit again lol. Onto the next expansion and FF14!

      Thank you guys! For me it was a pleasure with honorbuddy :) A break is not too bad for now.

      About the "coincedence" with Hamburg today: This idea crossed my mind too in the moment I saw the notification about my two banned accounts. I think a 180 day ban is a good "way in the middle" between "set an example" and "make the investors happy"...

      well yes sure. we all knew about the risk of botting. and as i said in another place: hb gave me back the fun playing wow. wow got so boring and i got lazy. if it wasnt for hb i would have quit the game about 1 year or 2 ago...

      so all i can say is thank you bossland and honorbuddy team! i had a great time with you and even i hoped it would last longer... but it is over now ;) bb

      Sh** happens, and as long as you guys say "we got detected" when bot actually did got detected, I see no reason for anyone to complain, afterall we all knew the risk.
      Slap the guy responsible for detection control and tell him to work harder, looking forward to use HB again soon :D

      Got banned for 6 months
      Only used the bot to farm mounts and level toons(all classes lvl 100 lol) on the same acc.

      Now we wait to see if it is in fact detected or just a mass ban on other criteria.
      In case it is not detected , we can try to appeal at last.

      honestly i dont think this is 100% related to honorbuddy; many assumed legit players got banned, about 50% of my guild got hit.
      i'll let the fog clear and wait for something official; in the menatime appeal your bans!!!


      and if it doesnt work out i will be developing for wilbuddy in the future :)
