    Hope they win.

    Fucking hackers are pathetic. Never really encountered a game where cheating was as prevalent as with starcraft.

    Never thought I'd be rooting for Blizzard again after Diablo 3.

    Think they only have a case because this "cheat" requires a payment that is a violation of the TOS.

    Good. Look at the amount of games that have been ruined by hackers.

    It's probably directly related to how successful the games are. Blizzard has produced some absolute juggernauts.

    Yeah exactly, plus you throw in the competitive aspect of them and its even worse. Another good example of hackers ruining games was the original counter strike.

    I despise any kind of hacker. I hope they win.
