World of Warcraft News - The Ban Hammer Swings - Bans Range from 6-18 Months

Posted by Suzie Ford on Dec 17, 2015  | Comments

Blizzard has posted on the World of Warcraft forum that the hammer has seen action recently with a 'large number' of accounts banned for use of bots, third party programs that automate game play. Penalties include removal of gold, PvP currency and gear. The last time the hammer slammed into bot users, accounts were banned for six months. In this latest action, Blizzard has said that repeat offenders will face a longer penalty.

A brief look at the HonorBuddy forums shows that users are indignant and posters reporting anywhere from a 6-month ban to an 18-month ban.
