Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty Discussion
Can I use CHEATHAPPEN's trainers and not get banned by playing on SP ONLY, and restarting the game and closing the trainer to play multiplayer?

I'm not pro douchebag and I'm not pro cheater, but when you use a trainer, you effectivly break the law, and the fact that this site charges money for the trainers, you know, not really 100% great. I realise I will get hate, and you must realise that I couldn't care less.
Don't whine about not being able to do what you said you wouldn't and get in trouble for it.
In fact, the Korean courts recently ordered Blizzard to make their EULAs more clear before they can proceed with their prosecution. If they're going to enforce it, the least they can do is be consistant and clear with what they want.
The problem with EULA's are you have to open the box to read them, and once you do, you can no longer get a refund.
Maybe when I become filthy rich I'll take one of these gaming companies to court about it.
Thank you for posting your opinion.

Nonsense. Just because it's in the EULA doesn't mean it's in any way enforceable.
I could easily place a clause in my EULA that states you must mutilate your genitalia in a wood chipper if you don't hop on one leg while patting your head and screaming rubber baby buggy bumpers at the top of your lungs each time prior to playing the game. That doesn't mean it's in any way enforceable, as clearly that clause is against the law.
EULA's simply haven't been challenged much outside of an odd Autodesk claim about resale of software.
What Blizzard is doing is unacceptable. As long as I'm not cheating in multiplayer, it should be of no concern to them how I use my purchased software so long as I'm not infringing upon their trademarks, copyrights, or stepping on their financial toes. This nonsense really reeks of Bobby Scumbag's stink finger.

I can not understand the reasoning for bans. The game is boring with no replayability value. Their actions just contribute to illegal warez and shows the importance of the balancing activities of the hacker groups against unethic actions of companies. Yes, thanx to them banned players can play the game without paying 60$ again. Losing the MP aspect of the game is not much importance for me or many SP lover users.
Also steam has achievements too, but they do not ban anyone for trainers in SP. If they do such a thing, steam will be finished in hours. Blizzard seems to have taken a step but to an empty elevator hole. They just lowered their massive sale for new comer Diablo III.

Now as much as I did I guess "get away with it," I'm currently to hesitant to try it again.
NOTE: I never once tried to use the trainer on MP matches, only in the Campaign and the Challenges.
