Blizzard Drops the Ban Hammer on Thousands of Diablo III Hackers, Cheaters
A few weeks back it became apparent that some less than reputable characters took the term “looting” a little too seriously and began to break into accounts on Diablo III and drain them of valuable equipment and gold. This wasn’t exactly a hacking epidemic, but it was certainly a big enough problem that many users demanded retribution.
Blizzard Community Manager Zarhym hit up the official Diablo III forums earlier today with a message explaining that Blizzard has finally taken measures to ban not only hackers, but cheaters, botters, and other types of exploiters, who are basically out to ruin everyone’s good time.
The entire message has been reproduced below.
