Something of note, although I haven't been able to confirm or find it, my guild leader (who is pretty reliable for info) said earlier that blizzard made some big changes to their ToS... among things in BGs like afk'ing at the start is something about where you can play WoW on what client. So, like your account WILL be banned if you log on in say EU from an NA account or vice versa. Or like China on NA servers (I think he said China but can't remember...) you get the picture.
He said he read it on blizzard's forums, in general so of course unless it was a sticky I missed when I looked it'll be very hard to find most likely. Indeed, like I said, when I looked for it I couldn't find it. However, something else he said about the changes and AFK'ing in BGs seems to be true, as I called a GM on some people earlier and actually a GM to respond and he said he'd be trying to contact the people to see if they were really AFK after asking me about it. Whether they actually got banned for a day or anything I obviously don't know, however just the fact the GM responded to me and said he'd get in touch with them makes me believe it is true. Plus, AFK'ers in AV are getting really low in numbers (if not gone totally) now also.
The section is not new. It has been in place for a long time.
edit: hmmmm. if Blizz enforces the ToU, they could ban Chinese and Indian IPs from NA servers. Think of the impact on RMT (sounds delicious!). Edited, Jan 12th 2007 6:48am by ohmikeghod
edit edit: hmmm again, could someone post the equivalent section from the European ToU? It would be interesting to see what it says. Edited, Jan 12th 2007 6:49am by ohmikeghod
