Blizzard Bans Over 320,000 Battle.Net Cheaters

Use hacks on Battle.net, and you're going to get banned. That was the lesson that over 320,000 Warcraft III and Diablo II players learned yesterday when Blizzard banned their accounts for violation of the service's Terms of Use policy.

A friendly post on the Battle.net forums reminded players that in addition to using hacks or third-party software, abusing "unintended mechanics" in these games also falls under the umbrella of offenses that can get you suspended from the service. The post also stated that first-time offenders will only have their account suspended for 30 days, while repeat offenders are gone for good.

The bottom line? Don't cheat, stupid.
