Blizzard Drops the Banhammer

Although hacking and cheats are not widespread problems in StarCraft II, Blizzard is nonetheless staying on top of the situation, displaying the continued community support it’s known for.

In an effort to stem the use of hacks/cheats, Blizzard has suspended and banned a number of SC2 accounts that were tied to violations of Terms of Use.

The community’s initial response to Blizzard’s actions has been resoundingly positive.

Blizzard’s official statement:

We recently issued a new round of account suspensions and bans to StarCraft II players who were in violation of the 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, 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 and take action as needed.
