I used the trainers as well to get through the campaign mostly. I do enjoy the campaign, but I don't feel like replaying missions to have to get certain achievements, so I just ran the game on Brutal with a trainer up..
Then when the news about the whole "banning" for use of third party hacks was brought up, I stopped playing it as a whole...
I'm just wondering, because I do play it online, and do not intend on playing with hacks, cause that's just stupid and defeats the main purpose of Starcraft...
I do want to get a trainer and stuff from cheathappens, because it's been discussed many times before that they don't support multiplayer hacking etc etc, so it's a safe trainer to use if I am going to use a trainer at all.
But I just NEED to know if the banning thing is as harsh as they claim the Warden program is and I end up getting banragehammer to the face for using it in the first place

So if i get this right, "Blizzard" the so called mature and amazing company of some few new titles, are making money out of something they haven't REALLY tried hard to avoid. Like any multiplayer experience they could easily rewrite it so that anything in a multiplayer game has a set rule unless it's custom by a map editor. You know a FORCED stat that will never be changed no matter what, that way there wouldn't be all this mess happening, but instead they leave multiplayer open to be changed at will.
I didn't read the rest of the posts, so hoping nobody said this already ^.^
Rambling aside however anyone looks and reads all of these legal statements, it's obvious that Blizzard or someone has left everything open to attack just so they can take action for a profit. If a hint of mentioning came around to changing it so cheats can't be used in multiplayer at all, I'm sure the reply would be "why should we change something just because (hackers of the world) are creating issues when we can STOP them?" Which would be a pathetic and egotistical response, nobody in their right mind could say it out loud and expect to live it out.
I'm hoping none of the backlash reaches CH's as i'm sure everyone hopes. jj

Blizzard banned me for using the trainer in single player.
They didn't give any warning or suspension.
I emailed back and they claimed its in accordance with their policies.
I would like to say that I paid for the game and don't support piracy, but,
I feel like they are forcing people to pirate the game, because if you play a pirated copy you wont get any of this problems. Its singleplayer and you aren't playing with others so there is no need for their servers.
I found out that WOW cheaters don't get banned, as they pay per month and blizzard doesn't want to lose them. Statistically, a banned starcraft user has a high percentage to buy the game again. Which gives them a chance to earn another round of money. They don't really want to stop cheating either, cos if they did they would give you a warning before banning. So if you think that they are trying to make the game a better place, then you better realize thats just the excuse they are giving.
Sadly they are not really smart, because diablo 3 is coming out, so why not play a private server instead of their servers since they don't really care about their customer, just about our money. Maybe thats why there are so many WOW servers out there.
Getting banned is upsetting, but it also makes you think of your options. So if you are going to cheat even in single player, think a lot more...... cos blizzard will use any excuse to earn more money from you.

I had recently been banned. I had only used the trainer in single player campaign. Just after the 1.22 update I couldn't login and this ****es me off. I had tried to appeal this to blizzard but I got the same e-mail everyone else received. This isnt the same blizzard I remember back in the 90's. I had even sent a letter to the company for ideas on starcraft2 in the 90's after brood wars. I got a signed letter back saying how they appreciated my letter and will consider it if they ever make another game. THIS IS NOT THE SAME COMPANY. IM SO ****ED!

They even took out my cortex rpgmaps from my collection. I have every map I downloaded except those which really ****es me off. I still could have used them by making a hostile ai but ohhhh no they had to take those out!
I recently got banned as well after the latest patch was released. I've been a big supporter of most of Blizzard's games over the years and it really sucks that they would ban me from using the trainer in Single player mode.
There was no warnings at all, no emails, just a straight ban. What rks said does make sense although WoW players do get banned for exploiting certain things in the game but Blizzard is more lenient towards them.
I didn't even bother emailing Blizzard's customer support cause I know I'll just be getting the same bull**** reply.

I've used the trainer to finished the sp player campaign, blizzard don't target sp cheating. If you attempt to look at mp games with the trainer in the background as some sort of "just in case" then you deserve to be targeted with a warning. Blizzard will not and have no right or policy to say they will warn a player who openly gloats and uses any trainer of any type in anyway during league or matches that are not under custom. So i really doubt that they will ban players for using it only in sp as they know your already a valued customer for even buying the game.
Blizzard could look at it in a way of nobody cares about cheaters and would ban them knowing whining will just be laughed at by others, but money is money, you buy the game you play by the rules you take the risks, don't have it on behind multiplayer, and always restart after turning it off anyway! otherwise it's still being tracked.
be good! be judgless! THINK! jj
And shavako i'm more inclined to believe that you didn't restart when you clicked mp after getting bored with sp, so i'm sure their reason was justified somewhere.
