      Fellow buddies,

      As most of you have already noticed, Blizzard rolled a big banwave this morning. As far as we know, every
      single bot/tool for WoW got fully hit.

      It was already known most of the bots were already detected and that is why it took Honorbuddy more than
      a month to adapt to new detection vectors.

      Honorbuddy is not detected by the same detection vectors as other bots. Honorbuddy was partially detected
      during the first tripwire event on October 10th which have been pushed to target us directly. After Tripwire
      reacted to the new detection vector and the event was analyzed, it was assumed that only a few accounts
      would get flagged by it. However, it is clear now that it affected a wider audience.

      Here is a summary of our beliefs:
      • The new detection on October 10th was rolled out in waves
      • Tripwire was able to react only when it saw the new detection
      • As of this moment, Honorbuddy 892+ is undetected.
      Our beliefs are supported by the facts that we lost only half of the online sessions when the banwave hit, and
      people who only ran 892+ are not banned.

      Improvements are already being done on Tripwire to avoid such flaws for future attempts.

      We strongly suggest everyone to NOT use any other bots/tools as majority of them are still detected and
      to not use Honorbuddy on your beloved accounts.

      Leaving this thread open for further discussions.

      Be safe!

      Just as a heads up i quit wow quite a while ago and decided to start botting last night, botted all through the night, i was not hit (yet) and will continue to bot. I have not used any other tool for quite some time as i quit raiding a while ago :p A while ago for me is around 4 months or so...

      Me personally got all my test accs affected by the TW event, so they are banned. All other accs, not attached bots recently are safe.

      So the oct 10 event was the fault, then why 1 of my bot what used at the end of august last time got banned too? It wasnt even active from the end of august.
      And tell me why my fresh account what was registered at oct 12 why got ban too if Honorbuddy not detected?
      This announcement full of bu...sh.t, you cant just say sorry HB is detected or something, jsut lie continously. From my 4 accounts 1 was inactive like 2 months got banned and 1 was nearly 2 day old got banned too.... Quester lvling ....not even 24/7 hours gathering or something jsut 4-8 hour questing..... Stop lie, better.

      Ran .892 and was banned so that’s invalid, sorry. It’s only a matter of time honestly. After constant disconnects and crashes from HB, this comes as no surprise.

      I ran 1 account to test the waters out after the 1 month wait for the update. Got caught only in the 1st tripwire on the 10th of October (there were 2 tripwire events on that day). The bot ran for a few hours on 11th and 12th of october and today the account is banned.
      I guess waiting for a month wasn't really worth it.
      I will be giving HB one last chance.

      Hello,

      Account name: WOW # 2

      Account Action: Suspended until 2019/04/13

      Violation: Abuse of game mechanic error

      In the recent activities of this account, the characters abused the functionality to the detriment of the game environment or the planned game experience



      was the email and the banishment that I received yesterday at 11 o'clock pm, is it because of the bot or something else, algeum has any idea how I can appeal to account not be banned for so long Thank you
