Blizzard Bans 320,000 Hackers
Bans users for using hacks and cheats.
First time violation will result in a 30 days ban, while repeat offenders will likely find their keys permanently blocked and deleted.
“We would like all players to remember that abuse of unintended mechanics and/or use of third party programs is a violation of the agreement made when signing on to Battle.net, and can subject your account to disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban of its access to the service,” Blizzard said in an official forum post.
“These types of activities can severely impact the stability of our servers, and we’ll continue to aggressively monitor Battle.net in order to protect the service and its players from the harmful effects of cheating.”
It is said that if Bill Gates dropped a thousand dollar note, he would make it back by the time he bends to pick it up. I hope Blizzard has something similar going for them because man, that’s a lot of bans.
