The same thing happened to Houndus. He was one of the highest rated 2v2/3v3 mages on BG9. One day, he was suddenly banned and had all his S4 gear stripped and got an email from Blizzard stating he had his gear removed and a 72 hour ban for win trading. He had no idea why, of course, and emailed to find out. After many, mostly unanswered emails, he finally managed to piece together how Blizzard had determined he had win traded. A team he had beat many times, and that he was friendly with a player on, had whispered him and said "queue up". This was not an invitation to win trading, but rather an invitation to combat. Moreover, he WAS ALREADY QUEUED when he got the tell. His queueing was in no way based on that tell, nor did the the team in question, which he did get matched against and win against, "throw" the game to him in any way.Based on that, and that alone, he was banned and had his gear removed. To date, it has not been restored. So the moral of the story is, if you want to get someone banned, find someone who's doing arena near your rating, whisper them "queue up" -- and if you do get paired against them and lose, they'll get banned for it. GG!
