Already in May  the number of botters and real-money traders in World of Warcraft Classic has grown exponentially. A few weeks ago, Blizzard Entertainment  reported that they’ve banned 74,000 accounts from May to mid-June. An additional 40,000 accounts have been banned since then, averaging at 2,000 to 3,000 bans a day and up to 4,000 accounts on some days. According to a post on the official forums, most of these accounts come from the Americas, EU, Korea, and Taiwan.

Blizzard also thanked players for their reports which have helped the team take action against exploiters. “Player reports have been and will remain highly valuable to us, as we must evolve our detection and response methods to stay ahead of the organizations who would otherwise degrade the game for legitimate players.”

What did the company say?

“We’re dedicated to driving the the exploiters away wherever we can, as we continue to make our response to this one of our highest priorities,” says Blizzard. “This is a long-term effort that becomes continuously more difficult, as exploits and those who use them are driven by real money profit motives. We take action constantly, 24/7, to enforce the Blizzard End-User License Agreement 23. Any account that violates or assists others in violating license limitations on hacking, cheating, and other unauthorized use of the game is subject to suspension and removal.”
