After all the issues they had with Diablo II, Blizzard isn’t playing around this time with Diablo III. Today the company issued a warning on Battle.net that made it clear that they will not tolerate cheating on Diablo III. Blizzard said that they will start issuing bans and suspensions in the near future. We know our readers aren’t the kind of folks who would cheat, but if you happen to know somebody that does then send them this link so they know that Blizzard is getting ready to drop the hammer on them and they would be smart to play it clean from now on. Check the full statement from Blizzard below.
Blizzard Entertainment has always taken cheating in any form in Blizzard games very seriously, and that’s no different for Diablo® III. If a Diablo III player is found to be cheating or using hacks, bots, or modifications in any form, then as outlined in the Diablo III end user license agreement, that player can be permanently banned from the game. This means that the player will be permanently unable to log in to Battle.net® to play Diablo III with his or her account.
Playing Diablo III legitimately means playing with an unaltered game client. Doing otherwise violates our policies for Battle.net and Diablo III, and it goes against the spirit of fair play that all of our games are based on. We strongly recommend that you avoid using any hacks, cheats, bots, or exploits. Suspensions and bans of players that have used or start using cheats and hacks will begin in the near future.
Well there it is, cheaters consider yourself warned.
