can you get banned from wow for playing on a private server

Hey,

I”m pretty sure there are already multiple threads about this basic topic, but I somewhat can”t find any of these, so here are the questions:

Are you getting banned from retail WoW if you”re playing on Kronos?
Are there any cases of that happening?
Is it possible, but preventable via following specific rules?

Thx in advance

never heard anyone getting banned on retail because of private servers

then again never heard of anyone playing retail either
Why would you get banned in retail from playing on a private server. There is no way of tracking who you are on retail based on your private account. Unless kronos were to share personal details (name, email ect) with blizzard, which is absurb and highly unlikely.

Gruuz.
I”m sharing your opinion, but I wasn”t sure due to the vagueness to the whole topic if you google it.

It never happens, to the best of my knowledge, and I saw this question a few dozens of times. Play and don”t worry

Every time you open WoW.exe, it contacts Blizzard”s server in France; that”s how you get those notifications from Blizzard in the upper left. Unless you specifically ban certain IP”s from being contacted via certain ports, they can easily see that you open your vanilla client at regular intervals and put 2 and 2 together. However, last I checked, they liked money a lot, so I don”t see why they”d ban people for it.

That sounds interesting, i always thought that the .exe file has something to do with those retail adverts even if we changed the prime server connection but never stepped into actually looking at it. Might happen to somehow identify those IPs and ban them for good ? In my 7 years of playing in the private community, testing and playing on various private servers, never had an issue with retail account. As drood said money talks

I am not exactly sure, but I think that if you change your realmlist and add “set patchlist” into it, then you will get those news from different location. I can be mistaken, but I think it was necessary to change patchlist on the servers with custom launchers. So if it”s correct, then you can actually not connect to official servers.

Unless you specifically ban certain IP”s from being contacted via certain ports, they can easily see that you open your vanilla client at regular intervals and put 2 and 2 together.

Also, this does not prove you play on unauthorised servers. This only proves that you open your client at regular intervals.

Regarding the original question, you should download the latest version of the game and thoroughly read the ToS and EULA that pop up when you first launch the game. If they do ban for it, it will be somewhere there in one form or another.

Also, most EULAs have something similar to “We can close your account at any time for any reason without telling you why”.
