Blizzard locked 120,000 World of Warcraft accounts for using bots in WotLK

The old World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King restriction on Death Knights is back in effect next week in WoW Classic, but 120,000 players won't see it

World of Warcraft Classic is currently “spinning” the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, according to many the best addition that this Blizzard MMO has ever received, and along with new areas and all other benefits, it also brought a new class, Death Knights.

The aforementioned are characterized as a “heroic class” and truly in the hands of a player who understands the mechanics, they were a deadly weapon and a nightmare on PvP servers. At the time of the original Wrath of the Lich King was not a problem because the player who wanted to play them had to already have one character at level 55 with a maximum of one Death Knight per server.

World of Warcraft Classic was upgraded to Wrath of the Lich King without those restrictions because Blizzard counted on those who play it to have much stronger characters anyway, but they didn’t count on human egos, nor on bot creators who happily rubbed their hands. The result is hordes of Death Knights roaming the battlegrounds and making gameplay miserable for other players, which needed to be stopped. Of course, Blizzard opted for the tried and tested method of the previously mentioned restriction, and immediately locked all accounts they found to be using bots, 120,000 of them to be exact.

While some praise Blizzard’s move and wonder why it took them so long to react, there are also those who are mean and claim that Blizzard has decided to take a piece of the cake from the bots and the players who want to use them, in addition to them, now have to pay for a new user account. To that should be added the payment of grinding a new character up to the 55th level of development in order to be able to create a DK at all, if they do not plan to do this “satisfaction” themselves. Be that as it may, the restrictions come into effect with regular server maintenance next week, that is, on Wednesday morning for our area.
