You obviously didn't get my blatantly obvious play on your user-handle.



FWIW, I don't give a rats ass about World of Warcraft or what Blizzard does, beyond reading about the whining for various things, and South Park's brilliant take on it

I saw this. I know some Live enabled games will crash if they detect a hack/trainer, but banning people playing single player, that's a bit much. I do understand achievements are sacred these days : but it's hacks and mods that can keep a game going. How about the widescreen hacks for Starcraft 1? Multi is unfair, but the old campaign on a modern monitor is pretty cool to see in all it's glory. ::

I'd say bobby is behind this. After all, he hates video games, remember?

I hope someone sues blizzards over this. Banning someone from mulitplayer is one thing, but to rob someone of the ability to play a game that they legitimately purchased is bull****. Besides how can TOS even apply to the single player campaign.

Blizzards sucks ballz...

Not really surprised at all... Sad part is that I bet a lot of people are going to be more likely to just find the game cracks so they can play privately and with cheats.

Using a trainer can be a lot of fun if you just do skirmishes with the computer. Take off the pop cap and then you can really have a zerg rush.

Default Re: Blizzard Bans Single Player Cheaters - Blizzard going a bit to far?

you had to be an absolute retard to cheat in sc2. Game connects to B.NET, the moment you do this you use any third party app, then warden will pick it up.

Blizzard has all the rights to ban people if they do **** like this.

Well done Blizzard, i hope they won't cave into any outburst from cheater communities.

This explains the people who are whining saying they never used 'maphack', these people used the trainer to get achievement points.

There is a custome game feature if you want to play mods. In fact Blizzard has provided a very powerful utility for people to create some amazing mods.

Just remember, they were banned for using a third party application while connected to Battle.net 2.0 to get achievement points. If the game is too hard, difficulty settings can be set down, or use Blizzards ingame cheat codes.
For those defending the cheaters, please note Blizzard has cheatcodes that let you cheat to get instant buildings/money/etc, but this means you will earn 0 Achievement points.

Fully standby Blizzards ban.

Turns out its a 14 day Suspension. (Shame, would have love to see it as a full perm ban, i hope the account stats were wiped.)

Personally I think Blizzard are being retarded for banning single player game cheating. That itself should be illegal especially if a banned game means you have to buy a new one to play even single player. It's fine by me to ban them if they used it during multi-player but banning for single player cheating is absolutely not OK.

I don't usually cheat in my games in the first play through but I do look for trainers and such when I go replay it later. I did it with Diablo 2, Titan's Quest etc and I will most likely do it again with Diablo 3 after I finish it the first couple of times. I'll definitely sue them if they ban me and I can't play it single player anymore. You can argue EULA all you want but you sue for $50 in small claims court and if blizzard doesn't show up you win by default and they'll have to send you a check. Maybe after a while of getting many people suing them this way they'll get the message that some things you just can't do.

Some of you really need to go read that again and realise that they're doing the suspensions/bans to people using 3rd party apps to hack the game files, which you pretty much agreed to before you even finished installing. They could care less is someone uses the ingame cheat codes.

and if you want infinite resources, Blizzard allows you to have a very nifty in-game cheat code just for that.
Have fun with it and destroy computers if you want, but this will NOT let you gain the rewards. The problem is with people cheating to get achievements This devalued the achievement.
