All this is, is a temporary block. It's like, "We found a major bug, so we'll shut servers down for a few days to fix it".
The difference here, is that Frogster has had fraud problems, on and off since open beta. Pretty much anyone who's been following the game updates have seen this since a year ago.
They've announced several times that it is just until they can find a better 3rd Party company for fraud protection. It happened before, then they turned it back on. So now, again, they are turning it off, and will turn it back on when the problem is rectified.
This is nothing new.
It's simply unfortunate that so many players commit fraud. It is a problem both with goldbuyers/sellers, and with players.
We wouldn't have goldbuyers, if they didn't have anyone to sell to. This is a bad practice, and is "illegal" according to any games terms of service. For good reasons too. It ruins game economies. Bringing in an outside unlimited source into the game economy will make it unstable.
This is a major problem, and no one is talking about it because everyone is a closet case. Many do it, and of course none of them are going to say anything. So goldspammers continue to plague games, because the players continue to buy. The goldsellers wouldn't continue to spam if there was no market(I.E. buyers), and no one is happy with the garbage spam in game yet the players will never own up to it.
I find it humorous. It seems rather sad that players are actually going this route instead of just playing a game. It says a lot about how pathetic you have to be to do this, along with all the hacking and botting. Yet of course, everyone will stay quiet, because it's a major player-side caused problem.
Blizzard, and Massively have both covered this topic extensively. So rumors abound, but they are all false, and the only real problem is simple. It's because players are buying the gold.
On top of that Blizzard found an alarming and direct correlation between account hacks and gold buyers. In almost every case of a player saying they were hacked, it turned out they had recently bought gold from a goldseller.
So really, most of the time players in game forums cry about it, the most likely reasons are, they shared their account info, or bought gold form a 3rd party goldseller.
I honestly don't care what's said in opposition to my rant about it, because it is very alarming to me, and it is all the truth, and nothing but the truth.
