This is absolutely ridiculous, my computer updated last night and in the process it turned my VPN’s autostart function back to “on” which had previously been turned off because despite not one mention on the game’s box nor the documentation included within, nor does it say in the EULA ANY-F$#&ING-WHERE that VPN’s are bannable, apparently they are, and I was banned. I shouldn’t have had to comb through the forums or visit A SINGLE WEBSITE to learn that a completely ubiquitous software that I use with ALL OF MY OTHER GAMES (including my other Blizzard titles) is not allowed to be used… I mean, just because Blizzard doesn’t give a crap about my privacy and security doesn’t mean I shouldn’t… but hey, I figured it out, I turned my VPN off and went about my business, and now just a few short weeks later… I’m having the same problem because a Microsoft update decided to revert my settings.
So, clearly, yes I’m temporarily restricted. Clearly, it was because I have and use a VPN to telecommute and it somehow, someway got turned back on (AGAINST MY WILL) … so then, the real question is, how long am I restricted this time?
6 weeks back on diablo, 2 weeks temporarily restricted over something that wasn’t in the EULA and I had to dig through a BUNCH of pissed off player’s posts just to figure it out, which I did, and now another what? 2 weeks? 8 weeks back, 4 weeks banned. Yea, I’m a real f&*#ing happy camper.
PS: Just a thought, have y’all ever considered a warning message that goes something like “Please turn off all VPN, Proxy, Tor or Cloud-based ISP connections and try connecting to Battle.net again.” or… is everyone over there as remedial as Blizzard’s arbitrary and archaic game rules?
Thanks for letting me vent you bunch of… mumbles under breath …
