Warcraft 3 map hackers usually get banned incredibly quickly, like in a matter of days.

I remember one time 250,000 Starcraft accounts got closed by Blizzard. It was hilarious.

Cheating in the privacy of your own home - Fine. Cheating online - Bad.

That's great to hear. I congratulate Blizzard for this. Cheaters are the bane of my MP gaming existence. And Blizzard is one of the few companies that actually does something about it.

@Anonymous Reborn, they do. And many times, innocent bystanders get banned too. :`[

320k is a very large number when you first hear it but that 320k from 12 million is hardly scraping the barrel. They use real people so they don't have any real inti-cheating software like PunkBuster and only use a software called "warden" that scans your browser(s) bookmarks to see where you have been but that's another story.

Cheating & hacking will always be a part of on-line gaming and one day it may be 100% system automated to catch the culprits but for now its real people and they ban the people who don't hack or cheat just as much as they ban the culprits.

Hacking is a form of cheating. All hackers are cheaters.
