Blizzard has warned players to stay away from Diablo III cheats, and threatened permanent bans to those caught using exploits.

A post on the Diablo 3 blog follows the discovery of item duplicating exploit which resulted in the Asian Battle.net servers being taken offline yesterday.

"Blizzard Entertainment has always taken cheating in any form in Blizzard games very seriously, and that's no different for Diablo III," says the blog. "If a Diablo III player is found to be cheating or using hacks, bots, or modifications in any form, then as outlined in the Diablo III end user license agreement, that player can be permanently banned from the game. This means that the player will be permanently unable to log in to Battle.net to play Diablo III with his or her account."

The existence of cheats comes at a bad time for Blizzard, which is poised to finally launch its delayed real money auction house in the near future.

"Playing Diablo III legitimately means playing with an unaltered game client. Doing otherwise violates our policies for Battle.net and Diablo III, and it goes against the spirit of fair play that all of our games are based on. We strongly recommend that you avoid using any hacks, cheats, bots, or exploits. Suspensions and bans of players that have used or start using cheats and hacks will begin in the near future."

"if they going to ban someone from the game (especially one that has to be connected online to play), they should make an option for that person to play the game offline if they no longer can connect..."

Agreed. In fact, I think the game should have offered this option from the start. I would probably have bought it and played it by now.

btw: good on them for banning cheats... wish all Devs would do it on consoles too... cheats wreck games... cheat as much as you like offline, but online should be cheat/hack free...

Now I couldn't care less if these people get banned, or not. Not my problem. But, surely banning somebody for life for choosing to play a game that they bought, however they want to play it, seems a little unfair.

Not only do Blizzard still own the game and choose when you can and can't play it, but they can now tell you how to play it as well. This seems a little odd. Perhaps if they hadn't decided to incorporate real world currency into Diablo3 and just been happy to make a game, then there wouldn't be such an issue around policing people's fun.
