Wow, I look at this site every day and the last thing I expected to see this morning was my very own guild in the first story.So after reading the comments thought I should clear up a few things. Firstly, we're an Australian based guild on a US server so the arena queue times are OUTRAGEOUSLY long when we play. 5v5 queues can go up to an hour so you'll end up against just whoever happens to queue up at the same time. So of course if they finish a game at the same time, they're going to queue at the same time and probably end up versing each other. In my own arena team (2v2's) I've ended up versing the same team for 10 games in a row with huge gear and rating differences simply because there aren't many teams at that time.While I wasn't one of the ones banned because I don't arena with guildies, everyone, including every single one of the players banned, were shocked by this decision by Blizzard. Particularly because we're a PvE raiding guild, no ones ratings are particularly high anyway, and they only versed each other on the one night, a handful of games, and there were no warnings or questions asked by Blizzard before such a harsh decision was made.
