Blizzard bans 100,000 World of Warcraft users citing ‘automation and bots’


When it comes to gaming, it can be easily stated that quite a few individuals use cheat codes or bots to gain several advantages over others. Well, this has been the pattern for quite some time now, but Blizzard has probably decided that it is time. According to the reports, Blizzard has already banned approximately 100,000 accounts owing to the claim that they had been using unfair means to gain crucial advantages in the game, World of Warcraft. The accounts that have been banned have been caught using the unfair means.Blizzard Entertainment bans 100,000 World of Warcraft users

The official website clearly states that they will not allow any form of cheating and this is one example of the step that can be taken to curb the use of unfair means to gain advantage. To be true, the users should not be stamped with all the responsibilities.

More often that not we have seen that people use cheat codes and other unfair means to move ahead in a game. The issue is not just with online games, but with games like GTA and may other offline games.

Blizzard stated:

We’ve recently taken action against a large number of World of Warcraft accounts that were found to be using third-party programs that automate gameplay, known as “bots.” We’re committed to providing an equal and fair playing field for everyone in World of Warcraft, and will continue to take action against those found in violation of our Terms of Use. Cheating of any form will not be tolerated.

World of Warcraft by Blizzard Entertainment is one of the most played multiplayer online role playing game. This is a very bold step taken by Blizzard Entertainment by banning around about 100,000 profiles, where World of Warcraft has around about 7 million subscribers. Nevertheless, the step can turn out to be the extremely important leading to the reduction of the use of bots in online games.
