Warcraft III Account Closures
8:19 AM | Marcus Albers | Comment on this story

Battle.net has posted a news item stating that it has closed additional accounts and canceled registration keys of Warcraft III players tied to the use of cheating programs on the Battle.net servers.

Blizzard posted this on the nature of the closures:

In keeping with our aggressive stance against cheating, we have permanently closed 53,928 Warcraft III accounts. 8,168 of the Warcraft III CD keys used with the now-closed accounts have been banned from ladder play for one month, and 3,331 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 continues to monitor their servers, and urges players who encounter cheaters to report them to hack@blizzard.com.
