Blizzard Closes Over 100,000 WoW accounts
8:03 AM | Anthony Wang | Comment on this story

Blizzard reinforced their stance on cheaters and preventing illegal activities by closing over 100,000 accounts this past holiday. Furthermore, millions of illegally obtained WoW currency was removed from servers throughout the world.

In our continued efforts to combat cheating in World of Warcraft, more than 105,000 accounts were closed and over 12 million gold was removed from the game economies in Europe, Korea, and the US in the month of November. The closed accounts were associated with activities that violate World of Warcraft's Terms of Use, such as using third-party programs that allow cheating, and farming gold and items. These types of activities can severely impact the economy of a realm and the overall game enjoyment for all players.
