Blizzard has banned thousands of accounts. The blue post states this:
We’ve recently issued account bans to several thousand Diablo III players who were found to be using botting programs while playing. In addition to undermining the spirit of fair play, botting, hacking, and other forms of cheating can also cause technical problems with the game as well as contribute to performance issues with the Battle.net service. To learn more about our exploitation policy for Diablo III and how it may affect your gameplay, please visit our official support site.
As always, maintaining a stable, safe, and enjoyable online environment for legitimate players is very important to us, and we’ll be continuing to keep watch on Battle.net and take action as needed. In the meantime, if you wish to report the possible use of botting programs to Blizzard, please see this thread for more information. (We will also be adding the ability for players to report this kind of behavior directly through the game client in a future patch.)
For questions regarding account actions, please refer to Account Administration.
|As expected botters are getting banned it is only a question about when.
My impression is that botters, do not rush to forums and whine about it. They wait for and expect it, buy new copies of diablo and start all over again.
Why are there such a huge number of players cross regions claiming to be banned without bots, or any form for exploit?
|blizz says they didnt ban accounts based on login time so why are those banwaves made so rarely... botter will do it over and over again for sure. business is business. some of them use this forum, hope they have lost everything :]|
|I guess they do it so rare, so the botters dont quit?
This way it is a win - win situation for both parts, even blizzard, who gain player base and game purchases.
IT's good they ban the botters, I have just never seen so many posts in forums were people claim innocent.
I mean if you were a botter, would you rush diablo3.com/forums and claim to be innocent?
Makes no sence.
I wonder if they will clear this up.
Doesn't hurt to do that either and potential profits can be worth it :P
|botters are also generating cash for blizzard through RMAH, they cant ban them every week|
