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.

Haha interesting. While I don't believe Blizzard is actively involved in selling items, theoretically a Blizzard employee could be making some cash on the side this way.

However, I think those of you who are looking for a conspiracy underestimate the power of hundreds of thousands of players and millions of drops to make very small item drop probabilities produce many items. Still, intriguing theory.
