I think the problem is that there is no consistency with MA enforcing their rules.So the problem is that MA does not enforce its own rules.
They do different things for different expolits, depending on the serverity of it and how it affects their bottom dollar.
Ranges from nothing to permanent ban.
Their TOU gives them this right though, as it is there so that if they do decide to enforce it, the person has no standing to dispute. It does not say they will always ban exploits, etc, just they 'may' or 'have the right'.
Saying, well MA didn't ban this person for this exploit, etc isn't a reason to cry if you get banned for exploiting yourself.
However, the chances of anything bad happening to you if you exploit is extremely low going by history, it seems like people might as well exploit if nothing happens (or are required to exploit to compete with others).
Where if they set clear guidleines, and followed through (like other games do), then everyone would know its not worth it.
Guidelines like, first minor exploit - 6 month game ban, 2nd minor exploit - 1 year game ban, 3rd minor exploit - permament ban.
Major exploit - 6 month game ban, 2 year event ban, unable to withdraw for 2 years, etc
During this time you could write to support to appeal your ban (and prob not receive a response until after the ban is over).
Those are just examples, i am in no way saying these are what they should be, but you would have some sort of idea as to what IS going to happen.
Now we have circled right around to consistency.
Wake up MA!
