Blizzard have just banned “several thousand” bot accounts from Hearthstone that were found to be using “third party software” to play Hearthstone. The bans come as the popularity of bots have been on the rise after Blizzard seemingly did nothing about it. That ends today, after a flurry of bans have occurred in an effort to halt the bots in their place.
The latest bans come in an effort to rid the game of bots inside the ranked environment. “We’ve recently banned several thousand Hearthstone accounts that were associated with the use of third-party programs that automate gameplay, otherwise known as “bots” or “botting.” These accounts will be banned until 2015.
Blizzard have made their stance on third-party botting known, but do you think a two month ban is enough?
