Don't.
While it's not against the rules, it is one of the things that the antibot software treats as a red flag. I'd assume all our friends from Chinese sweatshops are using them to hide their location.

I sympathise with not trusting your ISP, but I believe the game's traffic is encrypted, if memory serves, so if that's all you do, then at least you're not exposing much. You can always flick the VPN back on afterwards.

I'd appeal your VPN ban if you really weren't using a bot - you're not the first person I've seen complaining about such a thing. Post in Account Help, though, not here.

Did you just gravebump a dead thread to try and start an argument over semantics? OP is long gone, so I assume so.
I was being polite in my response to your other thread, because I recognised you were just upset and needed to be directed to where you can best get help for your issue, but you've had that from multiple people now, so clearly you're just an idiot.

I have little patience for sophistry these days because it doesn't impress me, so to put it in plain facts for you and anyone else who might find this thread in the future before it ages out - use of VPNs can, and sometimes does, result in your access to your account being lost, either temporarily or permanently. As might have happened to OP if they had opted to go ahead and use a VPN, and as did happen to you, for actually using one. It doesn't matter if it should happen or if it's reasonable - the fact is that it does, and that's all that matters at the end of the day.

It's simply not a good idea to use one. It doesn't become a problem for everyone, but it does happen to some people. And if it does happen to someone, sometimes there's not a damn thing that they can do about it, except spam the Tech Support board, apparently.
