More StarCraft II players hit with the Ban Hammer

|

Following an initial run of StarCraft II bannings, Blizzard has dropped the ban hammer once again and cleared out a whole new slew of cheaters. While there are people complaining that Blizzard is banning people cheating in the single-player version of the game, both the single-player and multi-player modes run on Battle.net and the use of maphacks, drophacks, and trainers affect both sides of the gameplay for everyone. Blizzard included StarCraft II cheat codes for the single-player, so if you want to cheat you can do so without risking a ban. Here’s Blizzard’s statement on the bans:

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. 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.
