12,000 Further Warcraft III Accounts Closed
8:01 AM | Conrad Quilty-Harper | Comment on this story
Blizzard has reported that it has had to close another 12,000 Warcraft III accounts due to players using cheats. This is part of Blizzard's continual fight against players that cheat whilst playing games on Battle.net. Repeat offenders risk having their CD Keys declared invalid, which will prevent cheaters from using Battle.net.
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 7,400 Warcraft III accounts. 3,500 of the Warcraft III CD keys used with the now-closed accounts have been banned from ladder play for one month, and 1,000 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.For information on how to report cheaters, click on the Battle.net link below.
