Blizzard Bans Thousands Of Bots From Hearthstone

If you are a robot, and you play Hearthstone, I have bad news for you: You're probably banned. (Also, thanks for reading Kotaku. Please consider keeping us employed when you enslave humanity.)

Humans who use bots are out of luck too; Blizzard announced today that they have just finished banning thousands of accounts that have been linked to automated bots in their digital card game. If you're hit, you'll be banned until some time in 2015.

This is a rather big deal for the Hearthstone community, where botting has been a consistent problem for the past few months. Sorry, botters -- if it's any consolation, at least this is a pretty lenient punishment.

    Nah, finally - good news for honest HS players.

    Will people still be able to find others to play with without the bots?
