hello everyone, the other day I started a new WoW account and I also bought the Horde level guide for $40. I have been playing the past 3 days and got to level 50 using the guide (it was very useful). But this morning I tried logging in and it said my account was closed due to "Exploitative Activity: In-Game Chat Policy Violation - Advertisement and Spamming".
Support all the way from me, your guide is the best guide for the price and your customer support has been great. I agree with many that this sounds like extortion to me and be sure to bring legal representatives if this does go to court. My father works in international patent law and after reading both sides, I do not believe their case will hold any weight in court. Either way be prepared for the worst and hope for the best. Zygor is what me and my friends in the workforce call a scumbag and it sure as hell sounds like scumbag scare tactics to me. I am going to do some research on my end and if I or my father can find anything I will be sure to let you know via email. If as I believe it is true and you are truly in the right, then Zygor is bitter that his business is poorly outfitted and run and simply wants to bring you down to their level. Do not send them your business stats without first consulting well respected legal representation as that is them simply trying to find obscure stats to twist and take out of context. Like I said scumbags. You have my full support and I can give my word in court if your lawyers could use a written testimony. They can contact me via email.
The only thing I can see happening if this goes to court is Zygor being ordered to stop selling his addon in violation of Blizzard’s TOS. His demands are laughable, especially the lost sales. I don’t think he has a legal leg to stand on, since you had Tekkub’s permission. And I believe the only part of the addon that you actually sold, and wasn’t in the freely available trial version, was your own guide files.
A handful of us donated to Whoknowsit to so he could buy ALL the upgraded guides for MoP for all of us. That was an investment into THIS community not into torrents or into any other. We want it to remain safe for us to continue to use. Whoknowsit is smart enough to know what to look for to take out Zygors' tracking info, but he knows he is NOT perfect. That is why he is STILL careful.

It’s easy for the new player to follow and efficient enough for the experienced player to want to use it. That’s a tough act, but John pulls it off nicely and his Zygor’s Guide rocks. Of course, one can argue that it makes the game too easy, but I’m not one of them. Want to make it a bit more difficult? Don’t worry so much about your gear and send those heirlooms to your other alt. Heck, try it naked. 😉
It’s easy to install the Zygor Guides, and they are an in-game guide, so you won’t have to keep averting your eyes to an offline guide, or switching windows so you can see what the next step is. Everything you need appears in the window right next to your character. You’ll need about a week to get all the way through, starting from level one and going through all 85 levels and then earning your Loremaster achievement.
2. We also note that Tekkub had published the source code of TourGuide on http://www.github.com. One of the terms and conditions of opening an account with GitHub.com is that by setting the user’s repositories to be viewed publicly, the user agrees to allow others to use that user’s repositories to take a copy of source codes from software programs and develop it independently of that software (‘forking’). A copy of the terms and conditions for GitHub.com can be found at http://help.github.com/terms/.
Until this thing is over be sure to have everything proof read by your lawyer before posting it and possibly counter sueing, because you should’ve been given notice in writing by Tekkub prior to him selling it to Zygor and not way after (absolutely sounds like they planned this just so they could claim), and does this mean anyone using the free source code can be sued too? or anyone who has used it after the purchase by Zygor?
I recently decided the whole "make gold" thing is awesome...but I can't seem to wrap my head around what makes a good deal and what doesn't. After trying my hand at a few auctions I decided to do the zygor guides for leveling and rep and everything that's included (pretty cool so far...but if there's a free option I'd like to have that). Well they have a goldmaking guide. It updates data like TSM and tells you what is supposed to be the best deals to farm or whatever...well the best deal it was telling me was 8800 volatile fires. It was supposed to be an amazing deal but come on....8800 volatile fires?
The leveling path was built around using a Hunter character and run by a player who knows how to use that character well. For the average player running, for example, a Paladin, the guides could be frustrating in spots, due to the level of the mobs. I played through Joana’s Guide with a Rogue (all the way from 1-70) and was able to deal with most everything, except for a few elites and I skipped most all of the group quests.
