    Greetings Buddies,

    The following will be sad news, but this is the result of a six years long legal dispute that recently turned into a battlefield for hackers on Blizzard's side.

    With that said, our only possible course of action is to discontinue Honorbuddy. Effective today, we will stop all sales for the following products;

    Honorbuddy, Lazymon, Buddywing, Hearthbuddy​

    The aforementioned services will however remain intact until 31th December 2017 for those that already own a license.

    Within the next week we will decide on Rebornbuddy’s and Pokefarmer's future. Demonbuddy, Exilebuddy and the Hashing service will remain on sale for the foreseeable future.

    The forums will undergo a change; the store will be closed. A lot of things will change.

    It has always been our opinion that Honorbuddy provides no edge, except to empower players with less time than others to enjoy the game like anyone else. Many disagree, not in the least Blizzard, but being able to provide this service to those players has always been a goal of ours, and something we have been happy to do for the past 8 years.

    It saddens us to close these services, but the recent advancements from Blizzard's side are only possible because of their decision to compromise the privacy of their players. While WoW runs, the game is continuously scanning the user's computer with the capability to send back exactly which applications the user is running, and in some situations even going as far as sending back window titles of any window on the computer. These things happen even if WoW is running in the background, and even without logging in to a character.

    Fighting this war as long as we have is something no one has done before, and no one will do in the future. It is not quite over yet, but we need to adapt to these new circumstances to even stand a chance of continuing in the future.

    We hope you understand these changes are not something we do because we want to, but because we have to. We thank you for your continued support.

    Well. it's been a fun run honestly. sad to see Blizzard likes to spy on it's customers, they should consider working for the U.S. Government.

    Its been an incredible journey over the years as a customer of HB. It really does feel like a part of our history is closing up, but I want to say thank you to the team involved in its development, I had one hell of a run with HB back in the day, and back last year. It's a shame that we are at this point, but as always, it's been an honor.

    Can you expand on the legal decisions for some of the cases and if arguments against addiction and harm or disability discrimination were used. Especially with controversy brewing over lootbox gambling to kids.

    The message for uk players states,
    "that the sale of its software which it sells as Honorbuddy, Gatherbuddy, Demonbuddy, Hearthbuddy, Stormbuddy and Watchover Tyrant, to any person resident in the United Kingdom, constitutes an infringement of Blizzard’s intellectual property rights and an inducement to players of Blizzard’s games to breach their agreements with Blizzard."

    I don't see how a program is breaching IP and the UK is meant to protect the public from unfair agreements.
    Laws like the Unfair_Contract_Terms_Act_1977 and unfair-terms-in-consumer-contracts-regulations-1999 .

    Sad to see HB close down. But I’m also sad to see my €13 just go poof into the air. I didn’t have one chance to use the bot at all since I bought my key. Not even for ten seconds. A refund possible?

    Take the money and run. I can't help but think they already knew this was going to be the result when they forced everyone to buy new keys.
