This situation while not as dire is not much different from the fiasco with the 2.0 patch before BC where many people lost a good majority of their bank contents, I being one of them. Many people thought they got hacked, but it was definitely related to the patch. What happened was the bags in the bank slots for many people disappeared. This caused the items to be put in the overflow they have in the game for problems similar to this. After contacting a GM about the bags missing they restored them and I put everything back. I thought everything was fine until a few days later during maintenance all the items in my bank that were originally in the overflow disappeared which was roughly 90% of my bank items. It took multiple weeks and multiple petitions to get even 10% of my items back that were in my bank. Eventually they told me they wouldn't restore the rest and the stuff they did give back they wouldn't restore the enchantments on. This right here is another example of Blizzard being at fault and ignoring/blaming their customers for something their patch/maintenance did.If it hadn't been for the fact of BC being a few months away I probably would have called it quits right then and there since I lost all my resist and tank gear(Mostly Tier 2 and a few Tier 3 pieces) which was literally years of work(I had been playing for two years at that point). Luckily BC was reset everything. But it makes you think about how all that work can just up and vanish.The best part of all of this is I logged on the PTR a few weeks before the 2.0 patch went live and noticed my bank bags were missing and reported the issue. I'm guessing they either didn't read it or shrugged it off as a PTR-only bug.
