These questions get asked every week, so some answers for those of you asking them: - 72 hour bans are from player reports, suspected botting, or suspected abuse of the economy - Permanent bans are from multiple offenses, gold-selling, or detection - Blizzard piles up bans for days/weeks at a time before banning everyone at once. Its a scare tactic. If there was a banwave, you would see hundreds of threads, not 5. - You CAN appeal the 72 hour and permanent bans, and in most cases get the account back. I don't recommend appealing the 72 hour ban because in some cases it will lead to a permanent one if they investigate your account. - If there is an HB or GB detection or banwave, WE will tell you and disable HB and GB.
