Blizzard Banning Thousands Of Glider Users

by Rainier on May 22, 2008 @ 6:05 a.m. PDT

We all know that Blizzard is not afraid to use the ban hammer on gold farmers and all sort of cheaters, but it seems to have outdone itself this time around. While still in a legal battle with the creators of Glider, a bot program used in WoW to generate honor while being offline, Blizzard started banning thousands of subscribers who are using the "cheat" program. Shortly thereafter, the Glider forum was flooded with hordes of its users (it costs $25) wondering what was going on and asking for their money back.
