Blizzard Updates Battle.net Ban Policy
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
In an effort to discourage cheating in StarCraft and Diablo II Blizzard Entertainment has announced an update to its ban policy for the Battle.net service. CD keys associated with cheating will be restricted from playing on Battle.net for a period of time, and repeat offenders may have their CD keys banned permanently.
As part of our continued effort to ensure a fair and fun online experience for all Battle.net players, we have expanded our efforts to remove cheaters from StarCraft and Diablo II. We have identified and closed over 350,000 StarCraft and Diablo II accounts which were found to be using third-party hacks. For more information head over to the links below.
Battle.net: Ban Policy Update
The Diablo II CD keys associated with the closed Diablo II accounts are now restricted from playing on Battle.net for approximately 30 days. Repeat offenders will have their accounts closed and their CD keys permanently banned from Battle.net.
As a reminder, we reserve the right to close the accounts and ban the CD keys of players who are caught cheating on Battle.net. Cheating ruins the game experience for legitimate players, and we will not tolerate it.
