Blizzard Bans 59,000 'World Of Warcraft' Accounts

Rich in legend and filled with adventure, the World of Warcraft awaits! For the first time, players experience the lands of Azeroth from a new, in-depth perspective. As heroes, they explore familiar battlefields, discover new lands and take on epic quests and challenges.
In keeping with Blizzard's aggressive stance against cheating in World of Warcraft, it banned over 59,000 accounts in the month of May, and with that removed well over 22 million gold from the economy across all realms. The banned accounts were taking part in activities that violate the game's Terms of Use, including using third-party programs to farm gold and items, which severely impacts the economy of a realm and the overall game enjoyment for all players.
