now this third party stuff may seem suspect, especially since there are map hacks among other things, but i guess just take it with a grain. but bliz may be warming up the pimp hand for all these cheaters.
check it out this guy in this link was banned for "macro keys" or so he claims.
"So i was banned last friday for using " Third party hardware that creates an unfair advantage"
i was using the g19 logitech keyboard.
aparently bliz has a way to find if you macro onto keyboards.
I was using it for build orders, very simple macros to pop out some units with one button instead of 2.
had to buy the game and recreate my account..... i talked to bliz over the weekend to try and unban my account. they eventually caved and just wiped my leauge record. although the cd key was still banned so i still needed a new game.....
basically everything multiplayer was wiped and they warned me that if I use a macro enabled keyboard in multiplayer again they would ban me.
then i asked about the sc2 keyboard out on the market right now, dont have the link, but its basically supported by blizzard.
they said only 3rd party hardware/software is bannable.
i have lost some respect for blizzard.
AND I WAS JUST PROMOTED INTO PLATINUM!!! I HAD A 82-45 w/l ratio
FU blizz FU big time"
**edit** Thanks Merikh
Here Is an update from blizzard on the matter in response to a question from Merikh.....if you do use a macro keyboard that is fine but using the macro features in the game is not.
