I know we had a big discussion about this a couple of weeks/months ago, but there's now blue posts clarifying this, saying that they consider it an exploit and to report it.

Hi guys,

While I cannot really comment on any potential problems with the Arena queuing system - this is something that, if anything, will be met with a development solution - I can confirm that "Wintrading" is against our rules, and is considered to be exploitation.

If you notice any Arena teams which seem to be doing suspiciously well without any apparent competition, then I would encourage you all to report the teams to us in-game so that we can investigate and take appropriate action against them.

The above rule is void if the person/team in question really deserve their mount & title.

I am sorry but this is bullshit.

I am better than you and deserve full vengeful gear on all of my characters.

Thus i will continue to wintrade because i deserve the gear and shouldn't have to struggle to get it.

Blue post of the decade:
I feel a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of win-traders suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. I think something awesome has happened.

I care more for drama than Chopper does, so that warrior is Kerwarrior from Automatic.

They've had the other team mate leave the team and rejoin so they're fighting people in the 1500s for hopefully easy matches but low point wins. I can only hope you run into a fresh team aiming for gladiator and lose 50+ points.

One day automatic will actually manage 2k+ properly... No... wait. They wont...

Yeah you jackass, jump the bandwagon...

What an idiot. Dont badname everyone in Auto because of a few....

Let me try what you did:

"
Yea, Touch of Winter....again.

One day Touch of Winter will actually be free of retards. No wait. They wont..."

Auto maybe should have their leaders interfer on this. Fact remains, its bullshit downtalking the guild Automatic for it.

The "don't judge whole barrel based on a few bad apples" line of reasoning is applicable to racial, national and sexual stereotyping, since, barring a few rare exceptions, people don't get to choose their race, ancestry or gender. Guilds, on other hand, are completely voluntary conglomerations of like-minded players. Therefore, a guild's moral character should, in fact, be judged based on the behavior of its members. If anything, this approach (and the threat of public ridicule) encourages guilds to police their own ranks and take care of problematic players "in-house", so to say.
