Strange behaviour of Tourny characters (in General)

Please excuse me if this is already known (only participated in one tourny so far!), but I've got some wierd things with my old Tourny character at the moment.

Steve Fox appears on my list of active characters, and I can train his XP, and it looks likes purchase things in Auction with him. He appears as retired on my Manage Character page, and there's an option to unretire him, which seems to do nothing.

I can't fight with him though, as it says "The Tournament Steve Fox participated in is over", but lists his BA of the old amount I had left in the Tourny (764).

I don't think I should be able to train him, nor spend his money. :/

This seems very strange indeed, because I can do nothing with the character with my admin tools...

If you don't think you should be allowed to buy things from auctions then why did you just abuse that. It's clearly a bug and if I were you i'd try and leave it alone so you don't get in trouble.

WoC, calm down. He was simply testing to confirm that he could buy things from the auction house. Tourney characters already skew the auction prices anyway, it doesn't make a huge difference.

This happened with the Zombie Tournament as well. The character stayed in my list of active characters for 2 weeks.

That's why I used a buy now of what, 30K? (On an Item no one *really* wants) Instead of splurging the remaining 500K I have on nothing but pushing bids up to be a, pest...

If I can be bothered, I might even put the MC back into the AH...
