Blizzard Has Banned World of Warcraft Cheaters For Six Months


It appears as if Blizzard has once again swung the ban hammer pretty hard in World of Warcraft recently, which have been implemented to lock accounts for six months, lasting until April 2018. These bans have been brought in for the use of third-party tools, which allow the player to teleport around the map freely and immediately. Other tools include the use for automated bots for farming purposes, as well as scripts that aid combat rotations.

Of course, there are those who claim to have never used such practices, nevertheless Blizzard will not be overturning any of the bans they have put in place. The email to players that have been banned reads:

“These programs (commonly called cheats, bots, or hacks) automate certain aspects of gameplay, or provide unintended advantages and abilities to the player. This type of cheating undermines other players’ experience and severely upsets the balance of the game environment. We don’t take this decision lightly. Our team issued this suspension only after a careful review of relevant evidence. Our support staff will not overturn this penalty and may not respond to appeals.”
