Blizzard bans 5000 Starcraft 2 Cheaters

It is time for Activision Blizzard to milk more money from those Starcraft 2 players who have found to be cheating. A lot of these game cheaters who have been banned would probably buy another copy if they have been permanently banned.

Activision Blizzard recently suspended and banned over 5,000 StarCraft II players who were in found to be violating the 2.0 Terms of Use. The reason? For cheating and/or using hack programs while playing.

Cheating and hacking on BattleNet undermines the spirit of fair competition and can lead to stability and performance issues with the servers of Starcraft 2. Since maintaining a stable, safe, and secure online-gaming experience for legitimate players is a top priority for Blizzard Entertainment, expect more bans in the future for those players who won't stop exploiting Starcraft 2 bugs and loopholes.

SC2Portal will now take your questions:

I have been permanently banned from Starcraft 2, what should I do?
Looks like it's time for you to purchase a new copy of Starcraft 2.

What should Blizzard do?
Release constant patches to exploits like indie company, S2 Games does for Heroes of Newerth.

I am getting Authentication Module errors, what can I do?
You can apply the Unable to download authentication module fix to resume playing.

Will I get banned if I use single player cheats?
No. You can still use singleplayer Starcraft 2 cheats.
Blizzard is only banning those gamers who cheat on multiplayer matches.

If you think you have been mistakenly banned, contact Blizzard support right away.
