Blizzard Closes Diablo II Accounts
10:20 AM | Cord Kruse | 3 comments

In their continuing war against cheating on their Battle.net service, Blizzard has announced another round of account closures. 36,000 Diablo II accounts were closed for cheating. More than 28,000 CD keys tied to those accounts have been disabled from Realm play on Battle.net for one month, and more than 3,000 keys have been banned permanently from Realm play due to repeat offenses.

Please see the Battle.net FAQ for details on our anti-cheating procedure. As a reminder, the Battle.net news window that Diablo II players see after logging in has had a long-running warning against the use of hacks, clearly indicating that if we detect that cheating is taking place, the offending accounts may be closed without notice and the CD keys tied to these accounts may likewise be disabled without notice. Today’s account closures reflect our zero-tolerance policy against cheating, as well as our effort to prepare the Realms for the new ladder season. We appreciate the support of the thousands of legitimate Diablo II players in helping us keep Battle.net a secure and fun place to play Blizzard games.
