Battle.Net Bans & Policy Change

Battle.net announces a policy change for Blizzard's online service, saying they've identified and closed over 350,000 accounts for using third-party hacks to cheat at Diablo II and StarCraft II. They have long had a policy of banning accounts for cheating, but the new twist is that the CD keys associated with those counts have also been restricted from playing on Battle.net for approximately one month, and repeat offenders risk having their CD keys banned permanently. In conclusion, they state: "Cheating ruins the game experience for legitimate players, and we will not tolerate it." Thanks GamesIndustry.biz.

I have absolutely no idea where all those runes come from.

Duping of course. Even with multiple bot accounts doing runs, you're not going to find runes in that number that quickly. But despite their attempts to stop it, they never completely got rid of duping.
