“Play nice; Play fair.” It’s one of Blizzard Entertainment’s core values, and it’s
something we take very seriously.
Obtain information about Diablo III that’s not normally available to the player
Transmit or modify the Diablo III game files
Provide access to features or abilities beyond what is allowed by the game’s design
Change how Diablo III interacts with Battle.net
As a reminder, we do not permit the use of hacks, bots, or other third-party software

As weâ€™ve noted before, using this type of software not only undermines the spirit of
the game, but can result in a permanent ban — and no Nephalem wants to be remembered
by their dishonorable deeds within Sanctuary. Not only that, but third-party programs
can cause nasty technical problems, game-related bugs, and stability and performance
issues with Battle.net . . . all of which can greatly impact your gaming experience
as well as the gaming experience of others. This is why it’s important for us to make
sure that players battle the forces of the Burning Hells on their merits, with an
unaltered game client.
Over the last year, we’ve issued frequent rounds of account bans for cheating in
Diablo III, and we’ve just issued another. While we may not mention each round of
account bans when they occur, we have and will continue to monitor Diablo III for
exploitative behavior and take action as needed in order to help preserve the
integrity of the game.
So play nice, and play fair, and keep on giving those demons hell!
