Starcraft 2 Developers Initiate Ban Rush

Illustration for article titled Starcraft 2 Developers Initiate Ban Rush

In September, thousands of cheaters were busted messing around with Starcraft II. This week, with many players obviously not having learnt from the last wave of action, developers Blizzard had to swing the hammer again.

"We recently issued a new round of account suspensions and bans to StarCraft II players who were in violation of the Terms of Use for cheating and/or using hack programs while playing", a statement from Blizzard reads. "In addition to undermining the spirit of fair competition that's essential to play on, cheating and hacking can lead to stability and performance issues with the service. As always, maintaining a stable, safe, and secure online-gaming experience for legitimate players is a top priority for us, and we'll be continuing to keep watch on and take action as needed."


Remember, while this covers more obvious forms of cheating, it also means those using external tools - like Game Trainers - are in the firing line as well. If all you're playing is singleplayer, well, it'd be best to use the built-in singleplayer cheats. And if you're cheating in multiplayer? Well, you deserve everything you get.

If you want trophies, complete the missions legitimately. They reward achievement, that's why they're there.

If you don't care about trophies and want to complete the missions that you can't beat, use the fucking cheats that Blizzard gave you.

If you want to cheat on the missions just to earn trophies and points, you suck, you're a cheater (and a liar) and you need to be banned.

If you want to cheat in multiplayer just to earn ranks, you suck, you're a cheater and you need to be banned.
