Blizzard Entertainment, the folks behind the hugely popular Warcraft and Diablo franchises, announced today that it has banned over 320,000 naughty cheaters from Warcraft III and Diablo II.

“We’ve recently banned over 320,000 Warcraft III and Diablo II accounts that were found to be violating the Battle.net Terms of Use,” said Blizzard on company forums. “If this is a first offence, the CD key associated with the banned account will be suspended for 30 days, while repeat offenders will see their keys banned permanently. All account ban decisions are final.

“We would like all players to remember that abuse of unintended mechanics and/or use of third party programs is a violation of the agreement made when signing on to Battle.net, and can subject your account to disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban of its access to the service.”

If you’re affected by this we don’t feel entirely bad for you, because you cheated in some manner.

    Woah. Can’t wait to hear all of my friends cry about their accounts getting banned and not knowing why. But making new accounts is free isn’t it? Doesn’t seem that painful.
