The vast majority of your faithful and thankful playerbase never posts or even visits the forum. I would bet many players don’t even know about the beautiful ban and 30 lock. These players are now probably back to work and log onto wow for whatever limited amount of time they have to do a raid or to level up or whatever. Its an escape.
So when you make the game more enjoyable by banning bots and cheaters via 30 lock, the silent majority are thankful. While there is a small part of the posting playerbase who complain about 30 lock, if you read the whine threads the same few people post there. Your 30 lock cut into their profits by stopping them from botting and cheating their way to Susan Express glory and riches.
Thank you Blizz, from us…the normal Joe who just wants an escape from life’s stress for a few hours to raid or do whatever in your game. We support bans and the 30 lock. We support even harsher rules that cut the legs out from under these cheaters. 30 lock hit roughly 1% of the playerbase. We don’t want them in our game. Keep up the great work Blizz!!!
And go ahead and release TBC asap!
