Blizzard bans Diablo III cheaters en masse


Blizzard has banned “several thousand” Diablo III players for using bots, according to this forum thread. In announcing the bans, Blizzard said that these kinds of acts (using cheats and exploits) are “undermining the spirit of fair play,” and that the company plans to release new tools in the early part of 2013 that make it easier for players to report bad player behavior and cheating to Blizzard.

Good news for Diablo III players who are frustrated by other gamers who are clearly taking advantage.
