    320,000 Battle.net Accounts banned yay!! =D

    I am not sure why nobody has made a thread about this, but today April 20th 320,000 accounts were banned from warcraft and diablo ii realms for using third party programs. There is less lag now =D.

    Very nice. West hardcore wasn't very populated before, so I wonder what it's like now...

    *Not that I'm complaining about anything, as I enjoy it when hackers get banned

    Will characters on banned accounts get deleted from the ladders?

    No, the accounts will be there but just inaccessible until they expire

    Sweet!

    But there are still many bot runs on EUSCL.

    At least there where this morning....

    Hope there will be another banning round :p

    I guess a lot of botters consider the bans as a kind of botting fee (and some people might even say that Blizzard regards it like that as well). They buy new sets of game keys on each permanent key ban and I'm sure they have enough items for a quick new start, on mule accounts which have never been accessed through game keys which have been, are or will be used for botting.

    Let's see how many reports I will receive in the next few days, about people who don't finish their trades while having a deal in the Euripe trading forum :scratchchin:

    At least bnet was kind enough to do it on 4/20. A lot of the poor saps no doubt had a different favorite pasttime of theirs to fall back on for consolation.

    Greatest new today! :)

    There's a introduction to nonbot baalruns in the player matchup forum if you (like me) dislike botruns.

    I hope the count will be zero.

    I'm convinced the botters don't care. All that happens is they lost 1 char the hammdin or sorc and all there ill-gotten gains were already transfered to mule accounts. Now they just create new bots. Over lunch someone was gearing and leveling up a char call "at_hammerbot" on east in the baal run I was in. They don't care at all since it helps them so much. Like Krischan said it just a "fee" they pay. Get banned do over. get banned do over. rinse repeat.
