Battle.net Crackdown on Cheats
9:22 AM | Conrad Quilty-Harper | Comment on this story

In its continual battle against cheating, Blizzard has announced another round of account closures for Warcraft III players. Nearly 6,000 accounts have been permanently closed, as well as nearly 3,000 CD keys being either temporarily or permanently banned from ladder play.

From the announcement:

A number of additional accounts and CD keys have been tied to the use of a hack or cheat program while playing Warcraft III on Battle.net. In keeping with our aggressive stance against cheating, we have permanently closed 5,900 Warcraft III accounts. 2,300 of the Warcraft III CD keys used with the now-closed accounts have been banned from ladder play for one month, and 500 more have been banned from ladder play permanently. Repeat offenders risk having their CD keys disabled, which will result in the permanent removal of their copies of Warcraft III from Battle.net.
Blizzard is asking for the help of legitimate WC:3 players in locating cheaters. Players can use hacks@blizzard.com to report suspect cheaters.
