Does Blizzard Monitor Official Fansites?
If you go to the website right now, and click on the link on the homepage - the featured link on the homepage - about the latest World of Warcraft tournament.. it links you to a stream. The stream is advertising an arena rating for real life money website - eg a, "boosting" website.
The same website recently dropped NAO as a partner because it was discovered that NAO is a corrupt cashgrabbing scheme by a small clique of randoms - but why do they get to keep being an official fansite if they allow things like this to happen continually? Why can't Blizzard determine what websites are 100% safe and only sponsor those?
ArenaJunkies is falling off, and all MMO-Champion does is datamine and post stuff nobody should be able to see.. what are we as players to deduce from this super lax double standard? Tons of arena players just got banned for account sharing, but those websites undoubtedly get revenue from being partnered with Blizzard and they obviously are not adhering to the ToS.
Blizzard's zero tolerance policy seems to only apply to individual players, not organizations that contribute financially. Double standards are not cool, and they're obviously breaking the rules.
