• Blizzard Banned Over 5,000 StarCraft II Players

    A couple of weeks ago, Blizzard warned that it would be cracking down on StarCraft II cheaters. In a blog post the company stated that anyone caught cheating would be "permanently unable to log into his or her battle.net account." Blizzard has made good on its threat and yesterday the StarCraft II maker confirmed that it had banned or suspended the accounts of thousands of cheaters.
    "We recently took action, including suspensions and bans, on over 5,000 StarCraft II players who were in violation of the Battle.net Terms of Use for cheating and/or using hack programs while playing. In addition to undermining the spirit of fair competition thatís essential to play on Battle.net, cheating and hacking can lead to stability and performance issues with the service. Maintaining a stable, safe, and secure online-gaming experience for legitimate players is a top priority for us, and we'll be continuing to keep watch on Battle.net and take action as needed."

    Thanks, Blizzard!

      I'm glad they've done this, cheating on multiplayer games is crazy and ruins it for other
