Hearthstone Bot Maker Hearthcrawler is Officially Out of Business

By   /   Nov 3, 2014

Just recently, numerous Hearthstone accounts were temporarily banned due to botting software in order to automate gameplay.

Now, the maker of a famous botting tool called Hearthcrawler has been officially put out of business by Blizzard.

Players should note that Hearthstone and World of Warcraft botting programs are no longer available for purchase and the creator’s website posted the following message:

“This is our last official announcement. The recent ban wave in Hearthstone hit a lot of users.
After discussing this with Blizzard, it’s clear we have to take off our services/products now. Please note that we’re not going to be commenting further on this.”

The message further stated:

“Thank you all for being part of our community. We are very sad about this but you also know botting is against the rules and we all knew that the day when our products doesn’t work anymore would come. With tears in our eyes we have to say bye.”

After thousands of accounts being banned earlier this week for a limited period, Blizzard stated that penalty will be more severe for players caught in the engagement of “win trading.”

If I understand it correctly, win trading is a match making system exploit, in order to position players for ladder climbing. According to Blizzard, anyone involved in win trading will have his/her account banned permanently, no temporary bans whatsoever.
