Blizzard Drops the Banhammer on More Starcraft 2 Players

Back in October, Blizzard announced that they had banned 5000 Starcraft 2 players. Now, they’ve released word that another round of bans has gone out.

In a short statement on the Starcraft 2 blog, Blizzard reports the bans (although without giving any numbers), saying that the players banned,

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. As always, 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.

No surprise here, as this tends to happen with regularity in Blizzard games. I guess we’ll have to wait and see if anyone reports getting banned for single-player cheats.
