this is really very sad. its like corporate paranoia. when we use cheats and trainers playing single player campaign against ai...that's our business. it helps enhance our gaming experience and we r not doing anything illegal. we pay good money for what should rightfully be ours...our gaming experience and we should be free to enhance that experience in any way we choose provided its not online-multiplayer and not illegal and isn't copyright infringement. i support CH in this whole-heartedly.

Ok, so not only is Blizzard being just downright asinine about this, they're being jerks about it too. Since when do you decide not to tell someone how they gathered evidence worthy of a ban? Seriously Blizzard? I'm going to return my StarCraft 2 game, and my money back out of your grubby little hands until you drop the tough guy act and leave single player cheaters alone.

I still don't see what the fuss is all about.

I don't agree with what Blizzard is doing either, and it is wrong, but it's not illegal. By installing the game you are agreeing to their EULA, which states that third party programs are cause for a ban. If you don't like that then you have to boycott the game and not play it.

On the other hand, this is extremely unfair to all the buyers of the game who enjoy cheating in single player. Even with achievements (which grant absolutely nothing besides bragging rights) I don't see how it affects any aspect on multi-player.

I don't agree with Blizzards choice on this, but really, what can we do? People have already bought the game, and I'm sure this won't constitute all of the players to get a refund.

This is sad. but This makes me think that the people banned used the trainer
A) After warden was Turned on.
B) Maby Skirmish vs Ai Is scanned by warden
C) For Got to Turn Off the trainer / And Restart the game. be for they laddered.

I say Unless more People get banned in masses Next ban waves. The trainer i Think is still Pretty safe. But Should only be used in the Campaign and nothing elce. And people Dont forget to restart There Sc2 After turning off the trainer.

Also FYI to thoes who dont know your autosave games are saved to your bnet account. So yea they have our saves if they wanted to check

As already mentioned, you agreed to their EULA. If, like most people, you didn't read what you were agreeing to then you can't complain. That being said, unless they've actually informed people that use of trainers or cheats in single player isn't allowed, then what they're doing is extremely questionable.

Surely they could do the same as Valve and offer a mode that doesn't contribute to Gamer Scores? Oh, wait, I forgot that only companies that care about the gamers and not money do that. Silly me.

This is petty considering Blizzard's standing in the gaming world. I would have expected more from them.
