Blizzard bans 320,000 Warcraft and Diablo accounts

A tidal wave of user bans come flooding down on Warcraft III and Diablo II players recently as Blizzard brought down the banhammer for 320,000 unfortunate souls. The bans come from a result of player submitted tips to Blizzard’s hack team which turned into a mixture of 30-day temporary bans and permanent bans for repeat offenders.

After posting word of the bans on their official forums, Blizzard issued a small reminder to their players, “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.”
