Diablo III Players Banned for Botting

We’ve recently issued account bans to several thousand Diablo III players who were found to be using botting programs while playing. In addition to undermining the spirit of fair play, botting, hacking, and other forms of cheating can also cause technical problems with the game as well as contribute to performance issues with the Battle.net service. To learn more about our exploitation policy for Diablo III and how it may affect your gameplay, please visit our official support site.

As always, maintaining a stable, safe, and enjoyable online environment for legitimate players is very important to us, and we’ll be continuing to keep watch on Battle.net and take action as needed. In the meantime, if you wish to report the possible use of botting programs to Blizzard, please see this thread for more information. (We will also be adding the ability for players to report this kind of behavior directly through the game client in a future patch.)

For questions regarding account actions, please refer to Account Administration.

Several thousand! Jeesh! Finally they took action. Man alive! I hope the botters stay away and that a change is felt in the game.

Go bot-hunters! (Maybe a new PvP class? LOL)

Now delete all duped items or better yet roll back the trades on the duped items then remove them, for people who abused the roll back feature with yourselves just delete the dupes it's their own fault for being slimy gits.

Wonderful reading :-)

With me not being au-fait with the ways of the t`internet, PC`s and such..
Does this mean that just the accounts are banned or would it be that the Isp address of those that cheat are banned and are then activly prevented from just starting again from scratch ?

Super start to the day ^^

Great news! A question though: when you do these bans, do you ban only the battlenet/game accounts or do you ban the the credit card linked to the banned account as well? It would seem rather pointless to only ban the game/bnet account of the heaviest botters since they will just buy a new game license and continue their botting.

The thing is if they managed to get a secure anti-bot program, they won;t be able to log/play even if they make new accs/keys etc
