I can almost see what Blizzard is getting at. While I'm not sure I agree with the way it's set up, the game records achievements when playing in single-player. If you use a cheat program, you're artificially inflating your achievement score. That makes those who got the achievements without cheating feel as if the work they did was pointless.

On the other hand, I don't agree with Blizzard forcing you to connect to b-net on a number of levels. For starters, someone can't remove their internet connection for any number of reasons while playing (or if your connection goes out, I wonder if SC2 gets screwed up). For another thing, a person should be able to play a video game offline, in the privacy of their own home, under whatever settings and tweaks they please without being monitored.

If nothing else, it'd be nice to have a way to play in single player mode offline and off b-net for those of us who don't care to brag about our achievements. I'll probably never get them all, as I'm sure some people will, so I don't really care about the bragging rights. Although, not to put too fine a point on it, I kind of have to wonder at the sanity of someone who spends like 1500 hours tracking down every last one. Especially with other games coming out. You can't really afford to focus on one single game.

Well, essentially the single player achievements are pointless. So I stomped the AI on brutal and above. That's cute, but, let's face it, it means nothing. On bnet only player vs player really counts. The SP achievements are cute and add a bit to the SP mode (actually, I don't think they add anything, the story itself is reward enough), but nobody judges your skills in SC2 on what SP achievements you have.

I dont look at people's single player achievements on multiplayer games. People making a fuss over it and stating that it inflates the system are people who probably think these "achievements" rank up to the achievements you can get in real life (getting a college degree or getting married). We're not cheating in multi-player games and if you're a better player you're still going to win and it will reflect properly about how many wins / losses you have - regardless if you beat the game on brutal SP.

I have been afraid to get on sc2 now.. ever since I saw the first post about this issue.. installed it again.. hopefully if they do ban me.. I am downloading it illegally.. didn't waste 60$ on my hard earned money just so they could take it away, not give me a refund nor a warning and just ban me completely and expect me to buy another copy... I ****ing hate blizzard now.. -.- .. I will post once I find out or not if I get banned this weekend.. I swear to god.. I do feel bad for the people that did get banned though..

Blizzard sent me an email that my account is under investigation.

Funny, I have never played multi-player, so I know for sure I haven't accidentally left the trainer on when playing that way.

To top it all off, I received another email from them saying my WoW account has been suspended.

WTF! I do not, nor have I ever had, a WoW account.

After reading the various blogs and posts I have decided to uninstall SC2 and avoid any Blizzard games and certainly not purchase anything new from them.

Are they crazy? There's way to many good games out there for them to just throw away any potential customers like this.

Has anyone else noticed that the achievements in Fallout 3 are disabled when you use a trainer?

Maybe they could learn a little something from Bethesda.

meh, too many other game companies want my money for me to sweat these guys.

please be aware of PHISHING e-mails which are NOT legitimate blizzard e-mails but are made to look like legitimate e-mails that direct you to log into b-net or some other thing with warnings of your account being looked at or some other thing. usually this is a way that scammers get your log and password. likely if you did nothing wrong and especially if you don't own WOW then someone is PHISHING for your l/p.

best,
Cal

my run in with blizzard cant be properly defined without using foul language. so the summary of my experience is.

Blizzard and they will never get my money again.

it just burns when someone pulls this kind of action, then allows an admin to close accounts just because he "thinks" theres a problem.

i learned my lesson, i wont be buying anything else they offer. eventually they will have to listen and change, or face bankruptcy.

Blizzard never sends emails for "account is under investigation". They only send e-mails to notify you that you've either been temp-banned or perma-banned from their services (and can easily be verified by attempting to launch your game).
