Blizzard Entertainment has announced the banning of 120,000 players, or "malicious accounts," from the World of Warcraft ecosystem, specifically from Wrath of the Lich King Classic and Classic Era. Interestingly, this massive ban wave serves as an addition to the regular ban waves that are carried out routinely.

This addition is intended to bolster the ongoing ban waves, which often target tens of thousands of accounts weekly. Blizzard hopes that these measures will help slow the spread of malicious behaviors in the Wrath of the Lich King Classic game. It is essential to remember that as long as there is a demand for gold and other services that players are willing to pay real money for, these malicious actors will continue to return. Players are encouraged to report such individuals without hesitation.

Another significant change concerns the Death Knights. Blizzard is reinstating the original class creation restriction, which was temporarily lifted after the launch of Wrath of the Lich King Classic. Starting next week, players wishing to play as a Death Knight will once again need to have another character at level 55 on their account.


This action demonstrates Blizzard's commitment to maintaining a fair and enjoyable gaming environment for all players. By banning malicious accounts and reinforcing in-game restrictions, the company aims to reduce cheating and other detrimental behaviors that negatively impact the World of Warcraft Classic community.
