StarCraft II Cheaters Get Banned From

Blizzard announced today that it has banned an undisclosed amount of users for using cheats and hacks while playing StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty online. Here is the official word from

" has word that Blizzard has busted out the BanLaser on some StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty cheaters (thanks Big Download). Here’s word: We recently issued a new round of account suspensions and bans to StarCraft II players who were in violation of the Terms of Use for cheating and/or using hack programs while playing. In addition to undermining the spirit of fair competition that’s essential to play on, cheating and hacking can lead to stability and performance issues with the service. As always, maintaining a stable, safe, and secure online-gaming experience for legitimate players is a top priority for us, and we’ll be continuing to keep watch on and take action as needed."

So there you have it. Cheaters and hack users should expect no less from Blizzard.

    That’s the thing, You need to sign onto a account to play, even offline. So to them, there’s no difference. They even justified previous bans of people only playing single player by saying that avatars you can get from the mission challenges is "comprimising the multiplayer experience".

    (For the record, these avatars are just that. Pictures. They give no benefits in the game at all)

    Banned from Bnet or banned from using their own games even offline?  The former make sense;blizzard’s service, blizzards rules.  The later is insane.

    my vanity is justified

    Indeed. I too can only applaud the removal of cheaters from multiplayer games, BUT what people do with their single player games SHOULD be their own trouble. If I use my car badly on the streets, fine, arrest me, but if I make a sculpture in the backyard out of it (that is not dangerous or polluting), then that’s my own business…

    Now here’s the catch: are they banning people using cheat systems while playing an online multiplayer match, or are they banning people using cheat systems while playing the single player campaign? The reason why this is such a concern is because while Activision sees no difference between the single player game and the online multiplayer, there is a difference. While I won’t argue banning the online multiplayer cheaters (I applaud it in fact), the banning of people cheating in only the single player part of the game simply because it requires you to be connected to your account is reprehensible.

    That said, that statement is very carefully worded to avoid saying whether they’re simply banning multiplayer cheaters or anyone using a cheat system in either the multiplayer or singleplayer modes.
