StarCraft II Cheaters Are Bashed With a Ban Hammer by Blizzard

StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void 3.5.0

Blizzard doesn’t spare cheaters and takes solid action against them as we have seen in the past.

Once again, they are going to do the same. The company revealed in a new blog post that they have rolled-out a new wave of bans/suspensions for cheaters in StarCraft II.

This ban will effect users who use hack programs and other methods to cheat the game. Why? Obviously they want to make StarCraft II community more enjoyable for players.

We recently issued a new round of account suspensions and bans to 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 that’s essential to play on Battle.net, cheating and hacking can lead to stability and performance issues with the service.

The company further said their top priority is to provide a safe, stable and secure gaming experience to its players.

The post didn’t reveal how many players have been banned or for how long. Is the ban permanent? Or will these players be able to play the game after a temporary suspension?

We are trying to reach Blizzard for an answer to these questions.

Hacking and other ways to cheat the game create a very annoying and frustrating environment in any online game. It’s nice to see Blizzard making sure such people don’t go unpunished.
