StarCraft II Bans

Battle.net has word on a new round of bans in StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty as Blizzard continues to police their real-time strategy sequel. Word is:

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.

World Region blocks still in place? if so, then sc2 still is bad idea.

Wrong.

World Region blocks are removed? So a friend in europe and a friend in usa can play together with their copies of the game and dotn have to buy another for either to play together?

Let's please use some consistent terminology here.

Cheats/Cheating - In-Game "codes" included by the developer.
Hacks/Hacking - Modifications/aids added post release by a third party.


Sounds to me like you can cheat in singleplayer and just not get achievements but any sort of hacking in SP* or MP = ban.

*since you need to be connected to bnet to play

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.

Yeah I know... I'm still fine with a battle.net ban for that because of the social features, I am just VERY opposed to a battle.net ban meaning you lose the whole game.

Cheaters should get whats coming to them. I have the worst opinion of online cheaters in any game (from personal experience) they are usually very fucked up people to begin with and exhibit extreme troll like behaviour.

They should lose ALL access from the game they cheat in permanently! If they can just go out and buy another copy, thats exactly what most of them will do.

D_K_night you have proof?

I only ask because my friends who play say they can login as the Oceanic Zone or American which they got access to recently but still can't Europe.

From what they told me, you get access to 2 versions of the same game for 2 different regions, which they say means anything you did in your original region doesn't carry across (achievements, titles or whatever).

I hardly called that removed, as you don't get world wide access, only access to one more region at the cost of anything you did in the first couple of months.

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.

why do you feel the need to cheat in single player? can't handle the game even in the easiest mode?

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 battle.net 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.
