StarCraft II Bans

Battle.net has word that Blizzard has busted out the BanLaser on some StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty cheaters (thanks Big Download). Here's word:

We recently issued a new round of account suspensions and bans to StarCraft II players who were in violation of the Battle.net Terms of Use for cheating and/or using hack programs while playing. In addition to undermining the spirit of fair competition thatís essential to play on Battle.net, cheating and hacking can lead to stability and performance issues with the service. As always, 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.

I tried to get back into it by playing a couple games online last night, but it's just too fast. Everything literally looks like it is moving in super speed, like watching a movie in fast forward. This might be great for the 400 apm pros, but for some of the more casual players it takes away a lot of the enjoyment. If anything, at least ask players what game speed they want to play on.

You can do this under custom games. You are able to set it to whatever you would like. However the ladder needs to all be done at once speed, otherwise match making would be all off. Plus I am sure the ladder doesn't have you playing 400 APM pros


Did you skip the practice league? It plays at a much lower speed and has rock wall offs on bases so people can learn the game before playing it at the real speed and having to worry about wall offs from fast pushes/cheese. If you did skip them I don't think you can go back to it now unfortunatly
