Blizzard has suspended or banned more StarCraft II players for cheating or using hack programs to play its game.
"In addition to undermining the spirit of fair competition that's essential to play on Battle.net, cheating and hacking can lead to stability and performance issues with the service."
"As always, maintaining a stable, safe, and secure online-gaming experience for legitimate players is a top priority for us, and we'll be continuing to keep watch on Battle.net and take action as needed."
Blizzard has fiercely patrolled the competitive online StarCraft II community since launch, weeding out cheaters and hack users as well as the creators of the illegal programs themselves.
