Yay for banning idiots from multiplayer.

Boo for that meaning they lose all access to the game after 30 days.

I don't think it's just MP. They were banning people for cheating in SP too.

That's just pathetic. You can't even run a few cheats in singleplayer? I had heard about that last time they banned people but couldn't believe it.

It's like ID banning you for using "idkfa".

Blizzard sure has changed since Activision dug their claws into them.

No, they're banning people who used hacks in single-player to circumvent the fact that using cheats would not grant them achievements. Honestly, I think they should just be stripped of their achievements and not be allowed to play online or exist on at all. If they want to hack in single player, I don't care, but Blizzard is entirely within their rights to prevent the outcome of those hacks from appearing on their service.

If you use the built-in cheats it prevents you from gaining achievements during the game you used them but you won't be banned.
