Apparently Anet handed out bans for disassembling one of the new event jewelry for ectoplasms. I used a more profitable conversion method involving the jewelry since really the ectoplasm method seemed to be a really mediocre way to make money to me.
It sucks for the people that got banned. The ectoplasm method was nowhere near game breaking, and was only mildly profitable, really only somewhat profitable to the early spotters. Anet ****ed up on this one. Seems like they still want to be *******s and nerf every ****ing decent money making method besides farming their game like a cripple or flipping AH items, or
I'm expecting them to undo this after the commotion caused. If not, my opinion of the game and company will go to shit.
