You don't need to ban every single person. Ban 50 people, or give 100 people suspensions. At least that'd make people think twice about doing it. Its kinda ridiculous to not punish *anyone* for actively exploiting. Or start handing out warnings, and if you get caught in the future then you get a suspension. Honestly, there's a lot of people who wouldn't do it if there was *any* threat, at *all* that something *might* be done. But so far to date exploiting has never been banned, which creates a really bad atmosphere for people who don't exploit.

First offense: account-wide 30 day WZ lockout. "Offending character" permanently locked/can't be logged into/can't be deleted. All equipment and credits on the character lost. Character will permanently occupy a slot at character selection as a reminder of your misdeed.
Second offense: PERMANENT BAN

**************
That there is a bug in the current system is undeniable, however it's NOT a valid excuse for continued exploitation of it for personal gain in WZ's. All BioWare has to do it post a warning at login that persons caught exploiting bugs will be severely punished, then drop the hammer on the cheating fools.

There is no one who can do it in Bioware. No GMs, no real-time chat agents, only lazy "we will investigate this problem [after 1-2weeks or 1+ year - /stuck on warzones anyone? ]" support.

This is a terrible idea. It is both unfair and misleading.
