World of Warcraft - Illidan

For a game like World of Warcraft, or any multiplayer online game with million of users, the issue of hackers and bots is nothing new.

They swung the ban hammer to squash bots twice last year for Hearthstone, once in China and once in the west. This time they are bringing their attention to WoW and with force!

A new post on the official website of the game revealed that they have banned “a large number” of bots that used third party programs in violation of the terms of use:

We’ve recently taken action against a large number of World of Warcraft accounts that were found to be using third-party programs that automate gameplay, known as “bots.” We’re committed to providing an equal and fair playing field for everyone in World of Warcraft, and will continue to take action against those found in violation of our Terms of Use. Cheating of any form will not be tolerated.

However, even if Blizzard Entertainment says that they have taken care of a large number of bots in the game, we all know this for a fact that it is a continuous process. This doesn’t mean they are done with dealing with hackers and bots, and in order keep this going, the developers need your help too!

In the same announcement post, they have asked for your input and provided an email address you can report any illegal activities on:

If you believe that you’ve encountered a player abusing a bot, exploit, or cheat, please let us know! You can do so by using the right-click report functionality in the game, and/or by emailing information to hacks@blizzard.com.

How long do you think it will take them to rid World of Warcraft of bots, cheaters and hackers if they put all their efforts into it starting now?
