Blizzard got balls. Permanent bans for cheaters standing


As promised, Blizzard is fanning the hammer at Overwatch cheaters. In China alone, 1572 players have been named, shamed and shown the door. Western cheaters are faring no better. Judging by aggrieved posts on the forums of popular hack providers, Overwatch is proving difficult to fool.

Cheaters are being hit by serial bans even after buying new copies. “Got banned one day after the official release,” one enemy of fair play recounts. “Thought I got detected for using RPM tools, because the game was crashing for it at that time.”

“Bought the game again… didn’t hack on it at all, just wanted to enjoy the game a bit. Two days later—banned again.

“Bought the game… again. But before doing that, I deleted Overwatch and launcher completely. Enjoyed it again without cheating only for a day.”

I can’t tell you how awesome this is. If only Activision had the balls to be serious about their bans with CoD.

Removing cheaters makes the new game experience so much better. It’s pro-active stances like this that make Blizzard such a force.
