    ROFL, I certainly hope EA doesn't follow suit, its just a "who can report who the most and get them banned, regardless if they cheat."

    And also, there's no way Blizzard actually checked these accounts properly, lets do the math.

    320.000 accounts
    lets say a really fast person can check everything in 10 minutes, with no chance of error or mistake. (uhm...lol?)
    Thats 3.200.000 minutes or 53.333 man hours or 6666 work days.

    Lets assume you have a team of ONE HUNDRED people, who does nothing from start to finish of the day but sit at the screen and check accounts, then it would take them over TWO MONTHS to do this.

    No way Blizzard did this fairly. And in the end this is just a publicity stunt, because of course Blizzard can afford losing 320.000 accounts (remember D2 accounts don't pay), when they have tens of millions.

    EA is already to much like Blizzard. Have you noticed all the %&^%&^ items in UO since AoS?

    They need to be more like Origin Systems was and make this game less fixated on items and be more fixated on making the game entertaining.

    Sheesh... don't wish that EA becomes more like Blizzard than it already is. This game is already in bad shape player-wise. Let's not encourage any more to leave.

    actually, uo had a 'hacking team' of sorts. their favorite was going to bug boards & see who was posting about bugs, then figure out who they were in Game to ban them(since talking/posting about bugs was against the tos)

    for what I know, blizzard has some kind of bot in the server that auto-ban players according on some kind of parameters... This kind of bot sometimes ban people accidentally (if someone remember few time ago the blizzard has banned lots of people only because their playing under linux) and the ban of this bot is permanent.

    I agree to say hacking, scripting, etc.. is wrong. But sometimes people went scammed by bad friends and forced to use programs that they never know completely what it does.
    I remember that once I played Diablo 2, a friend give to me a program that allow me to play in window mode (was a great thing for me!). The day after my account was permanently blocked. IMHO In this case if I was banned for 24 hours would be enough for learn the lesson.
