Blizzard kicks cheaters from Battle.net
Blizzard have announced this morning that they have purged a gigantic 350,000 players from their Battle.net online service. The players dismissed were apparently caught using illicit third-party hacks in games like StarCraft and Diablo II.
350,000. 350,000. This from the game maker: "The Diablo II CD keys associated with the closed Diablo II accounts are now restricted from playing on Battle.net for approximately 30 days.
"Repeat offenders will have their accounts closed and their CD keys permanently banned from Battle.net.
"As a reminder, we reserve the right to close the accounts and ban the CD keys of players who are caught cheating on Battle.net. Cheating ruins the game experience for legitimate players, and we will not tolerate it."
Naughty. Very naughty.
