Blizzard Closes 36,000 Accounts!!!!!

August 11, 2005


Diablo II Accounts Closed - Nebu :clap:
We have just closed more than 36,000 accounts for cheating on Battle.net. More than 28,000 CD keys tied to these accounts have been disabled from Realm play on Battle.net for one month, and more than 3,000 CD keys have been permanently disabled from Realm play due to repeat offenses. Please see the Battle.net FAQ for details on our anti-cheating procedure. As a reminder, the Battle.net news window that Diablo II players see after logging in has had a long-running warning against the use of hacks, clearly indicating that if we detect that cheating is taking place, the offending accounts may be closed without notice and the CD keys tied to these accounts may likewise be disabled without notice. Today’s account closures reflect our zero-tolerance policy against cheating, as well as our effort to prepare the Realms for the new ladder season. We appreciate the support of the thousands of legitimate Diablo II players in helping us keep Battle.net a secure and fun place to play Blizzard games.

Info obtained from The Arreat Summit :thumbsup:

Ebay

I was curious, so I went looking on Ebay to see what the market was like for the new season (HOZ for $31.00 and selling! ). There were a bunch of auctions with updated text by the sellers that said 'ACCOUNT CLOSED BECAUSE OF MAPHACK, DO NOT BID'. Blizzard has shut down the underground Diablo economy!

We knew this already, i had to lock the last thread about and move it to the mod archives.


The amount of swearing, trolling and flames that erupted in that thread was a discrace to the forum.

I think closing this one is a step in the right direction, thank you for understanding floks.
