Most of the ones that I see are advertising for sites.
This selling stuff in LFR needs to stop, this game is not about selling services to help Toons that wont help them selves!
I always report sellers of these types of things.
About time Blizzard.You have my support
Dont forget people if you see someone selling runs in the Group Finder report it using the "Advertisement" option
Blizzard should make a LFB (looking for boost) Tab, then ban the spam in trade and LFG tool so its all kept away in 1 neat place. Yes i know its a valid trade so fine in trade chat, but that does not make it any less annoying on a high pop server. Trade chat should be for in game items not chatting or boosting. Having to scroll down a bunch in the LFG tool is no fun ether.
Like some said"I'm fine with these kind of ads in Trade chat just not in LFG"
In-Game Advertising Policy Changes for Group Finder posted 2018/07/02 at 1:31 PM by perculia. This should not come as a surprise a year later. https://www.wowhead.com/news=285321/in-game-advertising-policy-changes-for-group-finder
Those of you reporting people in Trade chat are just wasting your time. That's explicitly allowed by Blizzard and won't be/shouldn't be punished. Turn Trade off if you don't want to hear it.
I like the idea of making its own group finder section that you can ignore if you so please and will also remove spam from trade chat. Win win.
Good. Now if they would do the same with the trade chat spamming it would be really nice. I do not see why I should have to get an addon so I can see what other people write in trade chat. And all that spamming constantly makes the game unplayable on high pop servers. At least when I tried to level a character on Draenor EU I had to switch to combat log while I was in the main city because of the spamming and it was annoying. If people would post once in a while, that is understandable, but spamming those is just horrible and not okay. Honestly,I think that the trade chat thing is more of an issue than group finder since they would not lag your game if you see some groups while on td it changes in real time. This is my opinion anyway. It's still good to see that Blizzard is at least doing something about it. You can advertise for your services trough other means, you do not have to make other people's gaming experiences horrible by spamming their only way to fiind groups with useless advertisements.
In short - FINALLY!In addition those bans should be also for trade chat in game as well as those bans every time should be longer twice as previous one soo 1st 1 day 2nd 2 days 3rd 4 days... and so on.
when will it go live? i just browsed for 'wts' in LFG, dungeons and got 10+ adverts. does this require a ridiclously amount of reports ie 50, to fire that system?
Blizzard should have started doing that years ago... I'm reporting dozens of players advertising in group finder on daily basis... Finally my effort doesn't go to waste...
