2 out of 3 most-rated WoW PvP players indefinitely banned by Blizzard

This is a good start to making the PvP community better.

Blizzard Entertainment issued three suspensions in a recent post on the official forums with two players being the highest-rated World of Warcraft PvP players in its history.

Andreas “Raiku” Meaney and Rene “Swapxy” Pinkera, two former players for XSET Gaming, have been indefinitely banned a couple of days after reaching 3,655 rating in three-vs-three, the highest in WoW PvP history. The third teammate Oscar “Whaazz” Wulff didn’t receive any punishment.

The individuals were banned due to bad behavior, according to the official ruleset, namely indecent language following leaked private VoDs which surfaced yesterday. The videos have been deleted from Twitter and Reddit following the issuance of the suspensions.

In addition to these two indefinitely bans, Blizzard issued Martin “Loony” Moazzez a one-year ban due to his account not being in good standing, according to the official ruleset.

While this is a good start for the WoW PvP community with Blizzard taking action against those who do not show sportsmanlike conduct, there are other issues plaguing the community, including wintrading and boosting, which have become more prevalent lately.

Correction on Oct. 17 at 4pm CT: An earlier version of this article incorrectly described Raiku and Swapxy as current players for XSET. The organization parted ways with the players on Oct. 15 after being made aware of their behavior.

The organization reached out to Dot Esports with the following statement:

“We were made aware of these troubling statements on late Wednesday night. We took immediate action and informed these individuals first thing Thursday morning that they were cut from the organization. This kind of language does not represent who XSET is, and will absolutely not be tolerated in any form.”

The article has been edited to reflect this information. We regret the error.
