Latest Wave of 6-Month Bans Rolls Out Targeting Third Party Tool Users -

Blizzard has rolled out another wave of 6-month bans in World of Warcraft that specifically targets players using third party programs to "enhance" game play. Players were banned that used bots to automate game play, teleport hacks and combat rotation scripts. Notifications were sent to affected players via email, a copy of which was posted to /r/WoW.

Greetings, Account Name: (name removed)

Account Action: Suspended until 2018/04/13

Offense: Use of Bots or Third-Party Automation Software

Blizzard Entertainment has suspended this World of Warcraft account after identifying the usage of bots or other cheat software.

These programs (commonly called cheats, bots, or hacks) automate certain aspects of gameplay, or provide unintended advantages and abilities to the player. This type of cheating undermines other players' experience and severely upsets the balance of the game environment.

The account holder is responsible for all activity on the account. We issue suspensions and closures to protect our players and our service in accordance with our Terms of Use.

We don't take this decision lightly. Our team issued this suspension only after a careful review of relevant evidence. Our support staff will not overturn this penalty and may not respond to appeals. For more information, see our article.

This World of Warcraft account will be reactivated on 2018/04/13.

Thank you for your time and for understanding.

Regards, Customer Support
