NEWS: Blizzard “Banhammers” thousands of Hearthstone users


In a move that should be shocking to absolutely NOBODY, Blizzard has taken note of the uptick in botting in Hearthstone, and are none too happy.

For the uninitiated, botting is using a third-party script to automate gameplay whilst the user is off somewhere else…like, say, at work.

Blizzard blogger Zeriyah outlined the new actions in a blog post yesterday, reinforcing that “fair play” is the soul of Hearthstone.

 ”We’re committed to creating a fun and rewarding environment for our players, and we will continue to closely monitor activities within Hearthstone and take appropriate action against cheating in any form, as outlined in our Terms of Use. From this point on, accounts found to be cheating will be permanently closed without warning.”

Users who encounter hacks or exploits are encouraged to notify Blizzard’s Hacks team at
