Cheaters in StarCraft II are being warned by Blizzard that it is ready to ban players who are exploiting certain elements of the game.
According to the developer playing the legitimately requires a completely unaltered game client and that the company has taken cheating “very seriously.”
Anyone found violating the rules will find their Battle.net account banned and subsequently locked out of the game suppose it serves you right if you’re cheating.
The full statement issued can be found below:
“Blizzard Entertainment has always taken cheating in any form in Blizzard games very seriously, and that’s no different for StarCraft II. If a StarCraft II player is found to be cheating or using hacks or modifications in any form, then as outlined in our 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 StarCraft II with his or her account.
Playing StarCraft II legitimately means playing with an unaltered game client. Doing otherwise violates our policies for Battle.net, 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, or exploits. Suspensions and bans of players that have used or start using cheats and hacks will begin in the near future.”
