Blizzard Swings the Diablo III Banhammer Again

Posted on June 28, 2013 AT 05:55am

Blizzard has once again swung the Diablo III banhammer down on various people who have attempted to skirt around the legal forms of play by using bots, hacks, and other exploits.

While no one reason was given for this recent ban-wave, Blizzard did say, “As a reminder, we do not permit the use of hacks, bots, or other third-party software in conjunction with Diablo III. While many of the programs intended for use with the game are actually cheat programs and automation programs (“bots”) that exploit Diablo III‘s mechanics and provide players with an unfair advantage,”third-party software” also refers to any file or program that attempts to:

  • Obtain information about Diablo III that’s not normally available to the player
  • Transmit or modify the Diablo III game files
  • Provide access to features or abilities beyond what is allowed by the game’s design
  • Change how Diablo III interacts with Battle.net
