Blizzard is making good on its promise to ban cheaty cheating cheaters in Overwatch, and even published a list of over 1500 offenders now shut out of the game in China. Meanwhile, users of ESP hack “Watchover Tyrant” have flooded the app’s forums with crybaby complaints that they can’t play anymore. Even buying a new copy of the game won’t work, as reported over on PC Gamer.

Let’s all point and LOL.

But, wait. Let’s get some appropriate mood music on.

“Got banned one day after the official release. Thought I got detected for using RPM tools, because the game was crashing for it at that time,” one guy lamented. “Bought the game again… didn’t hack on it at all, just wanted to enjoy the game a bit. Two days later—banned again. Bought the game… again. But before doing that, I deleted Overwatch and launcher completely. Enjoyed it again without cheating only for a day.”

The next time around, he changed his hard drive IDs, the PC’s MAC address and some registry and BIOS info, and even bought a VPN.

“Went to buy the game once again, played it for a bit,” he said. “And got banned in-game… without using any sort of cheats/hacks”.

Oh, boo hoo. You didn’t even use cheats or hacks that time? Here’s a medal. You’re so obviously rehabilitated and stuff.

“We’re committed to providing an equal and fair playing field for everyone in Overwatch,” said Blizzard in an update on Battle.net. “And will continue to take action against those found in violation of our Terms of Use.”

Overwatch is out now on PC, Xbox One, and PS4, and it’s kind of amazing.
