Hahaha who'd have thought it would be that easy! I can't stand hackers in multiplayer games. It's so stupid. Why do you want to ruin the game for others? It's so lame.

Pretty much my thoughts. It sends a message and shows Blizzard really cares about its game.

Good to see we're not alone on this one. I'm glad Blizzard is taking a stand on this. Overwatch isn't in need of any hacking, especially if it's going to hurt another player's experience. Loving the game and can't wait to see what the future holds for it!

I agree with banning accounts for cheating, but when they create new accounts and buy the game again, don't cheat and have no intenion to and still get banned I can understand why there'd be a complaint.

I can see getting upset with that to a point, but if you know that Blizzard is doing this sort of thing, why risk it in the first place? Sucks that they wasted another $40, but the reason they can't play their new copy is because they did cheat in the first place.
