Blizzard Closes 'Griefers' Accounts
8:37 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Continuing their crusade to keep things as equitable as possible, Blizzard has posted a warning to players who seem to delight in causing problems for others. Commonly known as Griefers, some players have apparently been deliberately losing during team games in Warcraft III:
We have received reports and observed that certain Warcraft III players have deliberately caused their own teams to lose in team games. This goes against the spirit of fair play on Battle.net, and as such, we will take action on a case-by-case basis. In each case, if we determine that griefing is in fact occurring, the grieferís Battle.net account and access to ladder games will be subject to removal.Most gamers know that this isn't the first time Blizzard has cracked down on such practices. While online gaming will probably never be completely rid of Griefers, many people in the related forum thread at Battle.net have expressed their approval of Blizzard's new policy.
