Blizzard starts permanently banning Hearthstone win traders
Blizzard recently started dropping the banhammer on Hearthstone players found using bots to hep them gain gold and levels faster. The bans were initially only meant to last for two months, but they will be permanent from now on according to the company. This was just the beginning however because Blizzard has now started banning win traders as well. The company has no tolerance whatsoever for win trading it seems as the accounts found participating is this activity are going to be banned permanently without any exceptions. A number of Hearthstone accounts have already fallen to Blizzard’s banhammer because of win trading including those belonging to high ranking players like Specialist and Gabe Walls.
I think most of the Hearthstone players will agree with Blizzard’s decision, except for the ones who were cheating of course. Still, it’s interesting to see that the company only began taking action now when there’s not really much at stake anymore. Something like this would have been much more useful earlier this year during the BlizzCon Qualifiers. Is it possible that someone cheated their way into the Hearthstone World Championship? I suppose we’ll never know, but at least we can be certain that few will be inclined to cheat from this point forward whether through botting, win trading, or anything else.
