+ - Diablo 3 Banhammer Dropped Just Before RMAH Goes Live->

Submitted by eldavojohn
eldavojohn (898314) writes "One thing Diablo 3 has that many other games do not is a "Real Money Auction House" (RMAH) that was set to go live today for players with two factor authentication. Of course, mere hours before that, Blizzard publicly announced they would follow through on their promises. Accounts they have identified as cheaters and botters have been banned "by the thousands." No official number is out but the news is indicating that as people get off of work and return home to their bot-wives and bot-kids they may find themselves without a valid Battle.net account (possibly tied to other games like SCII and WoW). Blizzard has also included many fixes to remove/dissuade many other exploits but if their past arcane attitude toward the "gamers of the game" is any indication, thousands will be unhappy."
