Just yesterday we reported that Blizzard is looking to ban accounts they believe have used cheats, hacks or bots to play Diablo 3 since they consider this to be a violation of “fair play”. If you thought that maybe you were sneaky enough to get around this, or if you thought that maybe Blizzard wasn’t serious, you might want to rethink that stance. In a statement Blizzard released on their forum, they have apparently already banned “several thousand” players.

“We recently issued a round of account suspensions and bans to several thousand Diablo® III players who were in violation of the Battle.net® Terms of Use for cheating and/or using botting or hacking programs while playing. In addition to undermining the spirit of fair play that’s essential to everyone’s enjoyment of the game, botting, hacking, and other such exploitive behavior can contribute to stability and performance issues with the Battle.net service. As always, maintaining a stable, safe, and fun online-gaming experience for legitimate players is a top priority for us, and we’ll be continuing to keep watch on Battle.net and take action as needed.”

With the launch of the Real Money Auction House, we’re sure the desire to farm for items to sell has increased but if you’re going to use a hack or bot to do the farming for you, then you could be seeing your account banned, not to mention your efforts wasted. Anyone here had their accounts banned or know someone that did?
