Don't Cheat In Guild Wars, You Will Be Killed

Online role-playing game Guild Wars, like any other game played over the internet, has its fair share of cheaters. How Guild Wars deals with them, though, sets them apart.

Earlier this week, 3700 accounts were banned by the developers for "botting and match manipulation", "botting" being the use of automated programs to run through the game's boring stuff for you. Any guilds found to be behind such moves were instantly disbanded.

The crackdown itself isn't the fun part, though. No, that's in how the cheaters were publicly killed off on the game's servers, with "Dhuum" - basically the Grim Reaper - appearing out of the ground, in-game, and smiting them down for all to see.
