The Activision Blizzard gaming company has banned several users from their online game, World of Warcraft. The reason for this was due to the fact that many people started using robots to control their characters during fights. It was said that this would last until at least six months from now until those users would be able to get back online again with their accounts.
According to an article found on reddit and written by PC Gamer, this was a formal notice from the game makers that they noticed many of the participants were cheating during game play and allowing alternate devices to control their characters. This is a great move by the company, because it shows that they will not stand for letting people cheat in their program. This shows a lot of integrity by the makers and it goes without saying that all of the honest players out there will really appreciate the fact that they are stopping cheaters from taking over the platform. Paul Mathieson, gamer aficionado, is excited to hear the news that he can now play an honest game.
I think that more companies like this should take action in order to prevent others from being dishonest with the people they are interacting with online. After all it isn’t truly a competition unless all players are playing without any advantages over everyone else. Hopefully those who had their accounts banned will learn their lesson and decide to not break the rules in the future when they are able to log on again.
