    Default Blizzard sure knows how to show it's customers a good time.

    I just posted a very moderate and well written post discussing how I'd enjoyed playing their game for the last six years, what I liked about it and how I had slowly grown to find it choresome. This probably would have been fine, but in the last paragraph I mentioned I was heading off to Rift.

    Without warning I received a 30 day ban from the forums for supposed trolling / spamming.

    Watch out if you want to leave a goodbye post, you'll be facing the banhammer if you mention Rift.

    Serves you right for abandoning them in their time of need. Man they're going down...

    Maybe not any time soon but mark my words by the year 3000 Blizzard will be no more...

    I think I am lifetime banned from there.

    Long story... but to sum it up, I dont care.

    Plus it's not helping that Activision/Blizzard is closing the Guitar hero franchise, and pushed D3 back another year. So yeah they are a little bit testy right now.

    It's true, I'm not going back but I never expected such a backhander for such a mild posts. Do a search on their forums for "Rift" and you'll see a mass of other threads about it are all deleted. The ones filled with rabbib fanbois espousing the truth of WoW's greatness however are all intact ^.^

    They're pretty upset over Rift it seems.

    Here's a hint, you don't get banned for posting in a topic that mention rifts, only if you host it.

    Your only goal was to instigate and rile up others. You could have made a post about Rift on any forum on the internet, but you chose to do it on the site of a direct competitor and then QQ that you got banned. Blizzard did what most companies would do, if I was a forum mod there I would have banned you too.

    Blizzard never should have merged with Activision.

    Just give me Diablo 3 already though, seriously.
