WoW: Blizzard lifts bans for multiple lootings of N'Zoth attack crates
The release of WoW Patch 8.3 didn't really go smoothly: Numerous bugs plagued the game and caused frustration within the community, even though Blizzard quickly applied hotfixes to the servers. One of these bugs caused players to be able to open the special Black Empire loot box in the Valley of Eternal Blossoms multiple times.
The boxes appear during N'Zoth's raids and can only be opened with special keys
Players assemble these keys from six key fragments each, which are dropped by the enemies of the respective invasion. However, the bug apparently caused some players to be able to open a single crate multiple times - similar to how some daily quests in the Valley of Eternal Blossoms and Uldum could be completed repeatedly.
According to Wowhead, Blizzard then temporarily banned individual players who had supposedly exploited the error. However, this was apparently a misinterpretation by the developers, who have since lifted the account suspensions. Blizzard writes about this in an official bluepost:
"We have lifted the bans we had issued for repeatedly looting the Black Empire crates.We recently fixed the underlying bug. Our initial analysis suggested that an exploit had occurred: a series of actions happening outside of normal gameplay to provide an advantage. However, a deeper investigation showed that this was not always the case. This chest could be reset under harmless and even accidental circumstances."
So if you got banned for looting the chest, you should now be able to log back into WoW (buy now €14.99 ) without any problems.Support buffed - it only takes a minute. Thank you!
