As we reported yesterday Blizzard was on their way to hit cheaters with the banhammer. And now they have struck, we are yet to see how many players got hit. There will be people complaining in the official forums, that they got banned and swear they did not do anything wrong but it’ll be hard to judge from that the extent of the bannings.

    From some reports it looks they did not hit with a massive hammer, as some programmess used by some farmers were not affected with this ban. If it is their security programme DiabloWikiWarden that can not detect them or they are waiting we do not know yet but we will keep you updated with more information as it surfaces.

    We recently issued a round of account suspensions and bans to several thousand Diablo® III players who were in violation of the Battle.net® Terms of Use for cheating and/or using botting or hacking programs while playing. In addition to undermining the spirit of fair play that’s essential to everyone’s enjoyment of the game, botting, hacking, and other such exploitive behavior can contribute to stability and performance issues with the Battle.net service. As always, maintaining a stable, safe, and fun online-gaming experience for legitimate players is a top priority for us, and we’ll be continuing to keep watch on Battle.net and take action as needed.
