Saying the move is in keeping with their aggressive stance against cheating, the
Warcraft III Website
has word that Blizzard has once again busted out the whacking stick and laid
down the law on some 12,000 Battle.net accounts, permanently banning them for
the use of hacks or cheats while playing online. Half of the CD keys from those
accounts will be banned from ladder play for six months, while 1000 more of
those associated CD keys will suffer a permanent ban from ladder play.
