Default WARNING: Gold Selling, Power Leveling, Cheat Sites: Forbidden!

Lately we've been getting spam threads advertising Gold Selling and Power Leveling services for WAR. Some of them were pretty sneaky. People pretending to be noobs asking if whatever site is legit, followed by a second account by the same guy going "Oh yeah, they're great!"

These sites, however, are nothing but trouble. All too often they're fronts for people running scams, stealing credit card info, game accounts, etc. As a result, we've got a new rule that everyone needs to be aware of.

Threads About Gold Farming/Selling, Power Leveling or other shady Bullshit Regarding Warhammer Online or any other online game Will NOT Be Tolerated!

These sites always violate the terms of use of your chosen videogame and more often than not are fronts for scammers, hackers and account thieves. Heresy Online is not responsible for any damage to your computer, game account or bank accounts resulting from someone being stupid, lazy and greedy enough to click a link to one of those sites.

If you see anyone posting an ad for such a site, asking about specific ones or linking to them in any way, shape or form, report them immediately. I don't care if it looks like an innocent newbie asking if I-Steal-Your-Credit-Cards.com is a legit site or not. If you see a link to or name of a site offering shady services for online games, report the fuckers.

Anyone caught intentionally shilling for these sites will be banned, permanently. No warning.

Saw too many of my friends accounts get hacked in WoW, just because they went to the wrong help guide site (that had been hacked) or clicked on the wrong link. Gold Sellers are scum, and I'll be happily reporting any of the feckers I see.

I'll have a word with Jezlad about blocking them in our adbars. If you see any others, please PM me with the URL of the site so I can pass it on to Jez. But please avoid posting the address on the forums. Just fire off a PM

Unfortunately blocking them is harder than I initially suspected. We are only allowed to block a handfull of sites (and we've used up a few already) but there's literally hundreds of gold sellers out there.

So all I can do is reinforce my warning: Do NOT go to these sites. They're against the rules of the game and more often than not they're scammers either out to take your money or infect your computer with keyloggers so they can jack your account and steal your personal information. It's just not worth the risk.

I find it sad that people actually make these sites in the first place, and find it twice as sad people actually use them to give there characters better and stronger equipment, instead of actually playing the game like your supposed to, sad pathetic people.
