The folks at Blizzard weren’t joking when they said a short while ago that they were preparing to hammer down on StarCraft II cheaters. Over 5000 dirty hackers and cheaters who are quite happy to use unsavoury methods to up their win/loss ratio have been banned from Battle.net. Here’s part of Blizzard’s official word on cheating and being an a**hole online in StarCraft II:

“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 Battle.net and take action as needed.”

For those individuals among you who seem to think that you’re “entitled” to do as you please online with the games you pay for, keep in mind that when you signed up for your Battle.net account you agreed to Blizzard’s terms which explicitly state that you will be banned if you choose to walk the path of the cheater. Just sayin’.
