Cedega Users Banned en masse?
Lifted from Slashdot earlier today:
“Many Cedega (formerly WINEX) users claim to have been mistakenly caught up in a security sweep of the U.S. game servers performed by Blizzard’s World of Warcraft Game Master (GM) staff. Affected users received the same strongly-worded ‘Notice of Account Closure’ email messages that true bot users did, in which they were accused of the ‘Use of Third Party Automation Software.’ While diagnosis of this event continues early speculation points to Blizzard’s use of the Warden anti-cheating spyware application that is bundled with World of Warcraft, and the odd things that may have been produced by it when it was run via Cedega. Emails to World of Warcraft’s Account Administration staff continue to go unanswered while the list of affected people continues to grow.”
Cedega is a popular VM for Wow gamers on the Linux platform. In their effort to ban accounts using bots, it seems Blizzard is being a little overzealous. It also seems the debate is now shifting focus to whether or not playing on Linux is *against* the TOS. Doe anyone here play on Linux?
