Blizzard Strikes at StarCraft Ladder Abuse
6:00 AM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story
Blizzard Entertainment has posted an update on the rules of Battle.net ladder abuse on their classic real-time strategy game StarCraft. Several accounts have already been reset due to ladder abuse and Blizzard will keep their eyes open to oppose such infractions as well as any other form of cheating.
Blizzard will consider it ladder abuse if you:
Play more than 2 illegitimate games against any person within 4 days. Examples would be playing for 5 minutes and then surrendering, one player not building anything, repeatedly surrendering when there is no need, and so on. To read the full update, follow the link provided below to Battle.net's news page.
Blizzard Entertainment (add to watch list)
Winning/losing more than 3 legitimate games to the same person within 2 weeks. This way, you can still have a "best two out of three" match against someone, but any more than 3 games against the same person within 2 weeks will be considered abuse.
Intentionally disconnecting from a game for the purpose of avoiding a loss.
Playing ladder games in a way that undermines the spirit of competitive play.
