    Unlock *Locked* WoW accounts

    My WoW license and original wow character got locked over a year ago.

    I made several tickets trying to get it unlocked, but I stopped contacting them once they told me "It will never be unlocked".

    Basically, they locked it because they could not verify me to be the original owner and I assume this was problematic for them based on the fact that I had been transferring this
    specific character between multiple accounts that later got perma banned.(account sharing)

    I accepted the situation, moved on and made a new Battlenet account.

    x amount of days ago I was randomly thinking about the fact that you can only have 8 WoW licenses on 1 battle.net account.

    I then had a most interesting idea which turned out to actually work. My idea : Force rename the Locked WoW license

    For this to work,
    - I added 7 WoW licenses to my new battle.net account.

    - I contacted GM asking them if they could merge my "Locked" WoW license to my new battle.net account.

    - They did so gladly and bid farewell.

    - The "Locked" WoW license now appeared on my battle.net application as my 8th WoW license.

    - The merge had forced the Locked license to be renamed from "WoW1" to "WoW8"

    - Now I simply purchased gametime and logged in, because the account had now been unlocked!

    I assume the unlock happens because of the forced rename of the WoW License.
    I also assume this does not work on banned accounts, only locked ones.
    (There might have been some other mojo that happened in order for the license to become unlocked, I simply do not know the facts of the situation.)

    All I know is that my idea about the force rename of the Locked license seemed to work like a charm and now I have all my old transmogs and personal achievements back. Hope this will work for others as well.

    *As for me adding 7 wow licenses to my Battle.net. I merged my alternative accounts onto one Battle.net(I did not buy 7 gametimes).**I assume this method if correct does not work with trail account licenses**
    *I added 7 because I wanted to minimize the possibility of the locked license to keep its account name during the transfer. My logic was that there is simply no room for compensating when the 8th slot is the only available spot for the incoming license. Keep in mind, this MIGHT have all been a coincidental bug and none of this actually works. Although i doubt it. We won't know unless more people try my method on their own "Locked" accounts.
    *There is a difference between Locked and banned accounts. Keep that in mind.

    Here is a pic of my unlocked character ingame!

    That's pretty clever. Now just hope Blizzard doesn't notice.

    Well this could work with licenses named WoW1, WoW2 etc. But I highly doubt it could be done with the old pre sor merged accounts as all of them have unique names and I've done it in the past. However this could be useful for a lot of people, but judging by the fact that this exploit requires GM intervention... maybe move it to Elite?

    Wont this information be extremely limited in the Elite section of the site? I don't know, I am relatively new here. -Maybe that's the point.

    If consistent , this method has the potential to help a lot of people with their locked characters and accounts.
    But if rules are rules then I would love for someone to show me how to move a post from one place to another.

    Assume this won't work if the account is pre new battle.net system. Everytime I try getting an old banned account unbanned they don't even want to look into it because its so old

    You have nothing to lose by trying. Make sure you're "locked" and not "banned"

    Doubt you can unban with that, Name Confirmation is a very rare case tho.

    If the account is "banned" then this method probably wont work. But if your account is "locked" then this method will most likely work for you. I'm sure there's plenty of people that have locked accounts out there.

    I might give it a shot! I guess it just takes the luck of the right GM

    You mean you got it overturned by using the usual ban appeal system, and not this exploit? (just to be clear)
