Payo gets a 3-day ban on raidloot scams

The famous Youtuber and Twitch streamer Payo caught a three-day ban on one of his WoW accounts during a stream. The reason: raidloot fraud. The method player is not aware of any guilt. He is said to have made several decisions in advance as a loot manager about which some raid participants were not too happy.

We had reported last week that those in charge at Blizzard had banned numerous WoW accountsthat are in any way against the terms of use of World of Warcraft (buy now for € 14.99) have violated. The main focus was on users of bots or exploits as well as players who had farmed "AFK" honor in Alterac Valley too often.

Last night, the well-known Youtuber and Twitch streamer Payo by Method a video on his channel uploaded, in which the viewers were able to experience live how he also received a punishment from Blizzard (from 1:45:56):

According to Blizzard's notification, Payo's account will be banned in WoW Classic for three days for "raidloot fraud". He himself asserts several times in the stream that he is not aware of any guilt. On Reddit However, several cases come up in which Payo, as the loot manager, is said to have made decisions that some raid participants were not too happy about.

An example: At Vaelastrasz the belt of the villain T2 set dropped and Payo made no secret of the fact that he wanted the booty for his villain from the first moment (from 3:58:46).

However, another villain won the dice check. Only the winner didn't get the belt. On the contrary, those responsible for the raid then sought and found reasons to refuse to loot him. In the end, Payo pocketed the blood trap himself. The belt is said to have been rolled again later, but at that point the "victim" was no longer in the raid.

Payo is not the only member of Method that noticed negative loot distribution in WoW Classic. In November 2019, the Magician Jokerd stuck the stick of dominance himself, Only a little later, those responsible at Method canceled the contract with the player. Does Payo now face something similar?
