Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty Discussion
guess i slipped through the checks
"Blizzard Entertainment is not banning StarCraft II players just for using single-player cheats. There’s been some confusion in the last couple of days about the suspensions and bans meted out to players caught cheating in StarCraft II. It’s important to point out first, that many of the 3rd-party hacks and cheats developed for StarCraft II contain both single- and multiplayer functionality. In order to protect the integrity of multiplayer competition, we are actively detecting cheat programs used in multiplayer modes whether there are human opponents or not.
That said, players who opt to use any type of 3rd party hacks do so at their own risk — there are already built-in cheat codes for StarCraft II single-player that can be used safely. Blizzard Entertainment has always taken cheating seriously and will continue to aggressively crackdown on players who cheat in our games."
In one thread and
We are not banning players for using single-player cheats.
The confusion all comes from an inaccurate statement that we think cheating in single player negatively affects achievements or some such. Not the case. I don't even know if the person who this story is based on actually got banned, but if they did, it's because they were using a hack inside a multiplayer game.
I would recommend that if you want to cheat in single player StarCraft II games, use the ones we put in there. A lot of the hacks out there work in both single and multi. If you get a third party hack and intend to only use it for single player, and then go play a mutiplayer game with it still on, you're bound to get tagged.

We announced on Sep 14, 2010 5:04:38 PM UTC that we would begin taking a stance against Cheating in StarCraft II (Cheating in StarCraft II - StarCraft II). Upon further review of the action taken upon this account we see that a third-party program was detected several times after the posting this notification. Unfortunately we have determined that our original findings were accurate and the actions that were taken were in line with our current policies.
For privacy and security reasons, we are unable to disclose specific methods used for or the evidence obtained from one of our investigations.
We hope this has cleared up any concerns you may have and expect no further communication on this matter. Thank you for your time and understanding of our position.
