Blizzard’s issued a statement confirming the axing of 350,000 accounts from Battle.Net which were found to be using “third-party hacks” in StarCraft and Diablo II.

“The Diablo II CD keys associated with the closed Diablo II accounts are now restricted from playing on Battle.net for approximately 30 days,” said the firm.

“Repeat offenders will have their accounts closed and their CD keys permanently banned from Battle.net.

“As a reminder, we reserve the right to close the accounts and ban the CD keys of players who are caught cheating on Battle.net. Cheating ruins the game experience for legitimate players, and we will not tolerate it.”

Full thing after the link. Thanks, Kotaku.
