A post from Blizzard last night was made regarding the action against botters in Hearthstone.
We've recently banned several thousand Hearthstone accounts that were associated with the use of third-party programs that automate gameplay, otherwise known as “bots” or “botting.” These accounts will be banned until 2015. As we’ve stated, fair play is at the core of the Hearthstone experience, and cheating and botting will not be tolerated.
If you believe that you’ve encountered a possible bot or other form of exploitation, please let us know by emailing our Hacks team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To summarise all current accounts that were found to be botting are banned until 2015 and any bots found from here on out are permanently banned from the game.
What is everyone's thoughts on this? Of course it's nice to see the bots being removed but 2 months is next to nothing, everyone would have been better off leaving a bot running for months then taking the ban and enjoying the stupid amount of gold they've stock piled.
