Blizzard Bans 320,000 Accounts
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 7 comments

In the company's continuing war against cheating on their service, Blizzard Entertainment has announced another round of account closures. 320,000 Warcraft III and Diablo II have been banned for violations to the terms of use agreement.

We’ve recently banned over 320,000 Warcraft III and Diablo II accounts that were found to be violating the Terms of Use. If this is a first offense, the CD key associated with the banned account will be suspended for 30 days, while repeat offenders will see their keys banned permanently. All account ban decisions are final.

We would like all players to remember that abuse of unintended mechanics and/or use of third party programs is a violation of the agreement made when signing on to, and can subject your account to disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban of its access to the service. These types of activities can severely impact the stability of our servers, and we’ll continue to aggressively monitor in order to protect the service and its players from the harmful effects of cheating.

Many account closures come as the direct result of tips emailed to our hacks team by legitimate users. If you come across a hack, find a site responsible for distributing hacks, or have a replay of a newly available hack, please report this to our hacks team at or through our Hacks Report Form at

As always, thank you for your continued support, and we'll see you on!
