New World Of Warcraft Policies Posted
6:01 PM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Blizzard has posted some new policies regarding its upcoming MMORPG World of Warcraft. A new section, known as the Exploitation Policy, covers all the bases regarding the exploitation of bugs, abuse of game mechanics, use of unapproved 3rd party software, and other related issues.

The distinction between exploiting bugs and abusing game mechanics is a fine one. While bug exploitation involves the abuse of what is essentially a programming mistake, the abuse of game mechanics is the act of taking advantage of the limitations of the World of Warcraft game systems.
Penalties range from a verbal warning to an outright closure of an account found in violation. In addition, Blizzard has also updated its Harassment Policy, which covers topics such as racial slurs, and vulgarity.

Given Blizzard's penchant for routinely searching out and banning accounts found to be in violation of policies on, it should come as no surprise if WoW's policies are also enforced as stringently.
