Thousands Of Diablo 3 Accounts Banned As RMAH Goes Live
Posted on Tuesday, June 12 @ 10:49:00 PST by Jonathan_Leack
After weeks of waiting, Diablo III's Real Money Auction House is ready to go live, but that isn't good news for everyone. Throughout the week there have been reports of item and gold duping that have had a detrimental impact on the game's economy. A few of us have wondered how Blizzard would handle the situation, whether it be through doing a server rollback or the legendary banhammer, and a new announcement shows that the developer isn't kidding around.
Blizzard Community Manager Zarhym has posted on the official forum confirming that thousands of players have been banned from Diablo III for cheating and/or hacking. His statement, which was made this morning, says the following:
Blizzard has been battling to balance Diablo III since its launch, and most recently nerfed popular farming spots and announced a major balance patch. While we'll have to wait a few more weeks for the game to be balanced—especially for melee characters—, commodity auctions are now available and the RMAH is ready to go live.
