Glad I read this before activating my copy of Starcraft II. I paid some 50 euros for that thing. Imagine if they'd suspend it without refund. I'd hunt Blizzard down one by one and kill them. Then I would let their families have the 50 euros for Blizzard's funeral.

Anyway as it's been stated many times over, it's just stupid to ban someone for cheating to get achievements that give absolutely nothing, but in the end Blizzard secures their right to be *******s about their game.

The more prestige the better the ranking matches etc, and with competitions being played with prizes to be won, its not a case of everyone in it, it is the top players who do get the crack at the whip. Some tournaments have costs to register to deter this in the past.

This argument makes no sense. Your Starcraft 2 cheevos score has NOTHING to do with online matchups. I've got about 2300 points, and I routinely play people with less than 500. Sometimes I play people with 4000. Some of them beat me. I beat some of them.

On top of that, Blizzard's placement matches system ensures that you play people with a similar skill level as yourself, not the person with the nearest cheevo score.

Also, you're taking the discussion into the tourney realm, which has no bearing on this issue... we're talking about single-[player cheating and bans, and tournies are, by definition, all multiplayer.

I used tournaments as an example and of course it has bearing, as it is effectively the better players, in terms of standings in one game but in others can simply just be achievements gained.

Uncharted 2 has the latter system in place.

You also have to remember SC2 is new, I think Blizzard are looking forward to future improvements or implementation of newer things to SC2, and in a way protecting the MP side of things.

I don't work for them, I am only giving my point of view.

Tournaments in SC2 are held exclusively by Gretech Corporation through the GomTV website. They follow a Survivor Tournament style for qualification (Round of 64 qualification round using Dual Style Brackets). They don't use achievements at all for it. The first tournament was open and they began using the ELO system of points for "Professional" rankings and have new amatures qualify for Professional status through a Survivor Tournament Round (which takes 64 hopefuls and brings 32 new players into the main tournament with other professionals that got seeded).

Oops, wrong again DAB. I'm beginning to wonder if you actually have any idea what you are talking about or if you just want to make up arguments on Blizzard's behalf.

I don't understand what the big deal is using cheats or trainers for SP.
I understand and 100% agree with the no cheat policy for MP online gaming. But,SP? Come on!
I use cheats and trainers for SP gaming for fun and for the more difficult levels. I could give a **** about achievments.
Blizzard has really crossed the line in my opinion. They have NO RIGHT to ban and delete user accounts for SP use of cheats or trainers.
I spent my HARD earned money that i WORKED for to get this game And i waited years for said game. I have the right to use cheats and trainers if i choose to.
Blizzard is throwing their weight around.It's unfair and it's WRONG.

Hmmm I see nobody actually fully read what I said.

And Chris already pointing fingers, remember the last time you did that and actually accused me of stealing your trainers. Wasn't a good day for you then. So believe me when I say, No I am not making excuses for anyone, merely giving my view on what was said in the article about this.

Blizzard has been rumoured to change things in the MP side of SC2, what with all the carry on at the moment with the fore-mentioned companies.

I was one to say I doubt Blizz would ban anyone for SP use, but even back then I didn't know as much as I do now about possible plans, if I did I would have probably give some sort of warnings to others to be careful.

But at the end of the day, it is their system in place to protect as they see fit, a bit nasty of them but their software unfortunately.

That's a little harsh, don't you think? And I think the point here is the ethics behind it, forget their right to ban who they want, forget their reasons, it just isn't ethical to ban SP cheaters and lump us all together with the MP cheaters.
