In keeping with our aggressive stance against hacks and cheats, we have closed 20,000 accounts that were found to be using Warcraft III map hacks, and removed their ladder records. In addition, the CD keys of those offenders have been banned from ladder play for two weeks. We will continue to monitor the Warcraft III realms for malicious players. Please note: repeat offenders can suffer permanent removal from Battle.net if they continue to use hacks.While Blizzard regrets employing such measures, they are very stern when it comes to fair play.
If you find hacking or cheating while you are playing on Battle.net, you can report such instances to email@example.com.
