Gallywix Boosting Community Deleted All Their Online Presence

Recommended Posts

Following the recent suspensions of some Galywix members that were involved in RMT, the Gallywix community have deleted their website, Discord, and social media accounts.

Some members of the Gallywix community were found to be participating in real money trading, and so Blizzard permanently suspended their accounts.

Earlier today, the former raid leader of Method openly admitted that the guild was purchasing gold directly from Gallywix for real money. As a result, the Gallywix community have vanished into thin air and they've taken down their website, which currently does not load. The same goes for their Twitter profile, which no longer exists. They even deleted their Discord.

On Reddit, people are already speculating they did this to prevent Blizzard from tracking down their accounts. Another Reddit user says boosting is too lucrative for Gallywix to be dead and they will reform in some way, since the community is still in tact.

Very fitting. They ran away like actual Gallywix. 😆 On a serious note, this explanation seems highly probable. They will try to lay low, then they might return under different names (Gazlowe's?).

That name's been making me giggle whenever this pops up.

Wasn't that the boosting community which defended spamming trade chat here on icy veins (can't find the news so fast), because it is trading "services for gold"? Well, not only gold as it seems. And that is openly illegal to the user agreements. The velocity of their disappearing only shows that they know exactly what they are doing after all. 

To me it was and is kind of an open secret that they lie or don't talk about some aspects of their doings.

And OH BOY am I not surprised that some things now are kinda official.

Yeah, probably one in the same.  Out of sheer curiosity, I send whispers to a lot of these people offering carries of various types for gold.  Some are doing just that (paid straight up gold for my heroic nzoth kill) and that's fine.  But with a lot of the people I messaged, I found what they do is just send you a link to a discord channel.  Upon joining said channel, someone there discusses with you payment for real cash and gold is NEVER brought up.

 

And then, of course, a lot of the ones who are doing it for actual gold are turning around and selling that gold anyway.  A lot of this is super obvious but Blizz takes their sweet *filtered* time doing any thing about it.

I've seen some post from Reddit, where one of (now former) members of Gallywix said that their payments for their work have been delayed. They were supposed to receive money before the end of July, so it looks like their leaders were expecting something like this to happen for a while. Better to just run away and take all that money, I guess. Pretty sure some of them might resurface anyway, but under different names and group.

      It seems a new round of beta invites has arrived, or Blizzard has amped up the intensity of the handing out of access, as many players have noticed and encouraged other to check their inboxes on reddit! The number of players reporting getting an invite indicates this is a particularly large wave. In case you also just got into the beta, you can check out our Shadowlands guides to get a better grip on all the content available.
      Also, as noticed by twitter user @DoumStorm, also check your launcher first, as the mails tend to be slower than the invites themselves!
      Here are some of the responses to getting the key, with some interesting takes:

      This week's beta class changes appear to be starting and Warriors get a change to a powerful legendary item, as the Mishapen Mirror gets nerfed. We recently talked about this legendary in particular in out Protection Warrior spec highlights, and it's was one of two top pics for the spec.

      Hello.
      In this week’s build of the Shadowlands Beta, the Misshapen Mirror legendary has been changed. It now increases Spell Reflect duration by 60% and only affects your nearest ally.
      Previously, this legendary was proving to be stronger than intended.
      Thank you very much for your feedback.

      Death Knights get two Covenant abilities changes this week on the Beta, as Abomination Limb and Shackle the Unworthy get target caps, buffs and more.
      September 30 (source)
      In this week’s new build of the Shadowlands Beta, we’ve updated two covenant abilities, Abomination Limb and Shackle the Unworthy.
      Abomination Limb has been target capped at 5, and its damage has increased by 15%. The grip has also been updated so it may only pull the same target every 4 seconds. This change was made to prevent it from encouraging the Death Knight to repeatedly walk out of range and then pull the same target.
      We’ve also added a new functionality to the ability that grants Bone Shield charges, Rime, or Runic Corruption (based on spec) the first time the Limb pulls an enemy (this only occurs once). We hope this change will broaden the usage of the ability outside of PvP.
      Shackle the Unworthy has had its damage increased by 15%, but no longer has its cooldown reduced when spending runes. Instead of the cooldown reduction, it now works as follows: “While Shackle the Unworthy is active on an enemy, your direct-damage attacks that spend runes have a 50% chance to spread Shackle the Unworthy to a nearby enemy”.
      We hope this change gives the ability a more active playstyle and creates more situations where it might be more useful than its previous iteration.
      Thanks for the continued feedback, and we look forward to your thoughts on these recent changes.

      No Assassination changes this week either, as Outlaw gets the focus, with Blade Flurry buffs and more.
      September 30 (source)
      In this week’s build of the Shadowlands Beta, we have some notable changes for Outlaw Rogues.
      Since both Assassination and Subtlety can apply poisons in AoE relatively easily, we want Outlaw to have access to similar utility. As such, Blade Flurry hits can now apply poisons to any enemies hit.
      We’ve also changed the Between the Eyes debuff. It no longer gives you increased Critical Hit Damage against the target; it now gives you increased Critical Strike Chance against the target. This allows Blade Flurry to spread the damage bonus of this debuff to secondary target.
      Thanks again for your testing and feedback!

      Blizzard have posted that Covenant tuning is currently underway on the Shadowlands beta, to inform players that there may be some big number changes coming to being certain abilities closer to their counterparts.
      Covenant Tuning (source)
      In today’s updated build of the Shadowlands Beta, testers will see a snapshot of the the process of tuning several Shadowlands systems, which is underway. We’re in the midst of recalibrating the throughput of several Covenant abilities, and while in some cases the magnitude of the change may feel large, it’s necessary to bring outlier abilities in-line with our targets, so that players can make more accurate comparisons between abilities.
      Thank you for all of your help as we iterate on these abilities based on your feedback.
