Hi all,

I have just been getting back into classic TBC since I stopped playing retail years ago. I am due to go into hospital in a few days for a week and I wanted to play on my laptop and had heard about the addon ConsolePort. I installed it and used it a few times today and kept getting disconnected I then did some research to find that this is happening because the addon is now bannable.

Is this correct? I used it maybe 3-4 times today and that was it. Am I on the way to a ban or is the d/c a result of wow not allowing us to use the addon no longer?

It’s hard to say exactly what might be causing disconnects.

Nonetheless, I want to clarify that we don’t intend to take action against players who are using any sort of typical hardware to play the game in a typical way.

On Tuesday we had an error in our detection routine that caused us to accidentally flag some ConsolePort users, and we reversed it as quickly as possible.
