I haven't followed it very much but I *think* Swifty is some sort of WoW semi-celeb (i.e. he's not famous outside of WoW?) and had some sort of giveaway event sponsored by his sponsor (whoever it is). He hid a level 1 toon in some capitol on some server and it was a giant game of hide-n-seek.Apparently, once he was found, tons and tons of his fans converged on that one server - and either crashed it or almost crashed it. Some idiot ringleader took over and, against Swifty's wishes, got people to jump from server to server, spamming emotes, etc, crashing those servers as well.Swift was just running a fun community event and his ban was undone/reversed as a result. The idiots who intentionally spammed emotes to try to crash servers are gone and good riddance to them.(some of this may be inaccurate; please correct me if it is)
