Unauthorized Bot-Ban Update – February 2024

An update on how things are going in the fight against bots, after their post in December.

Quote from Blizzard

Throughout last year, we shared several updates with you about our ongoing fight against unauthorized bots in Hearthstone. This year, we plan to keep the fight, and the updates, coming.

Yesterday, we dropped the largest banhammer the Tavern has ever seen, several times the size of our previous banwaves. Over 135,000 accounts were actioned—targeting bot accounts that real players are most likely to run into on the ladder.

In addition to this latest action, we actioned about 60,000 accounts throughout the month of January for botting. We also banned some bad actors  who were using malicious third-party software to cheat in Heroic Duels.

We remain committed to ejecting these disorderly patrons from our friendly tavern and we’re going to keep taking these types of actions throughout the year and beyond.

We’ll see you (real players) in the tavern! And if you think about botting, we’ll see you, too.
