Shame not to see more realistic and balanced "report" regarding this incident.I followed this early on and can say that you wont find the same "evidence" now you could earlier. Videos/sound have been edited. The actions were done to more than one server, you can hear and see the Swifty character laughing. The actions went from one server, then after crash to a second then a THIRD. One doesn't have to have many brain cells functioning to realize after the first or second time the consequences.Was he treated differently? Would you or I be banned? Sure we would be banned and it would be reconsidered. Many more unfair things of importance in the world than some pseudo-celebrity of a internet game getting his account banned for being frankly a jerk. Those that continue to proclaim his actions were unintentional wont be convinced otherwise. Its easier for Blizz to unban him than to deal with the manufactured fall out. Blizz is taking the path of least resistance, sure they caved. This was going to be a pain for them. Unfortunately those frenzied by his live stream to follow and spam will probably be the ones who's bans stay. Ban the mindless follower not the person encouraging it......makes sense to me, yep. (note that was sarcastic)This is one of those things about gaming that is good for a rofl till you realize it only highlights that our "fantasy" world suffers from all the same unfairness and character flaws as our real world. I'm sure he is a "nice guy" but oh my if he is half the person that people are making him out to be he would NOT be editing videos/sound to make himself look more "innocent" - he would be stepping up saying "Oh my did I mess up, I'm stupid please forgive me".How about it Swifty - time to man up?Just keep him off my server!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!PS Razor not impressed at all....
