Blizzard Entertainment announced earlier today that they had laid the smack down on more than 76,000 hacking idiots in that little known MMORPG World of Warcraft. In addition to the bans, Blizzard also nuked 11 million gold from the games economy in Europe, Korea and the US. Thus helping us regular users to continue our addiction with less gold farming idiots to compete with and of course less of those wonderful super leveling service spam mails we all love now. Good riddance to bad cyber rubbish I say. Good on you Blizzard, and keep it up.
Here is what Blizzard had to say:
Blizzards popular MMORPG has nearly 7 million subscribers currently and the first expansion titled The Burning Crusade just entered into beta (with the NDA lifted no less) over the past day or so. The Burning Crusade will be out sometime later this year (we hope) and will offer a ton of new content and changes to the overall game.
