Hack 'N Slash: Hefty Battle.net Bannings


My cursory Googling can't quite pinpoint whether this is the biggest banning from an online portal, but it must be be one of the top slots: Blizzard have kicked 320,000 accounts off Battle.net for violating terms of service. The full post on the bannings is here. It seems most of them have come about due to use of hacks, as Blizzard explain: "Many account closures come as the direct result of tips emailed to our hacks team by legitimate Battle.net users. If you come across a hack, find a site responsible for distributing hacks, or have a replay of a newly available hack, please report this to our hacks team."

Blimey.
