Blizzard brings out the Ban Hammer!

The word from World of Warcraft.com is that Blizzard has closed the accounts of some 76,000 cheaters and siezed over 11,000,000 gold pieces.

In our continued efforts to combat cheating in World of Warcraft, more than 76,000 accounts were closed and 11 million gold was removed from the game economies in Europe, Korea, and the US in the month of September. The closed accounts were associated with activities that violate World of Warcraft’s Terms of Use, such as using third-party programs that allow cheating, and farming gold and items. These types of activities can severely impact the economy of a realm and the overall game enjoyment for all players.
