Blizzard gives Diablo III cheaters a warning

Are you a Diablo III cheater? Stop. Please. If you don’t, Blizzard’s banhammer just might.

Posting on the official site, the developer said it will start swinging shortly, with effects both temporary and permanent.

“If a Diablo III player is found to be cheating or using hacks, bots, or modifications in any form, then as outlined in the Diablo III end user license agreement, that player can be permanently banned from the game,” it is written.

“This means that the player will be permanently unable to log in to to play Diablo III with his or her account.”

The hammering is said to commence in “the near future.”
