Muting CD Keys

Q: What is "muting" a CD-Key?

  • A: Blizzard Entertainment has implemented a change to its sysop capabilities on Battle.net that enables authorized Blizzard Entertainment personnel to "mute" certain players on Battle.net. The muting function will allow us to make silent those players chatting in Battle.net who are found to be in violation of our Battle.net Terms of Use agreement. Other players will not see what the "muted" person has typed. Muted CD-Keys will not, in any way, affect actual gameplay. Muted players will be able to chat in-game only.

Q: Why has Blizzard Entertainment implemented the muting policy?

  • A: We have discovered certain players on Battle.net who are attempting to utilize the Battle.net channels for purposes that violate our Battle.net Terms of Use agreement. Some of these violations include attempts to steal account information by impersonating Blizzard Entertainment representatives and spamming the channels with inappropriate content. The mute function has been created to prohibit players from continuing to perform these violations. (Remember: No Blizzard Entertainment employee will ever ask for your CD-Key or password. Do not give this information out over Battle.net or anywhere else.)

Q: If I see someone trying to steal an account or witness other inappropriate behavior, how do I report it?

  • A: Please e-mail support@blizzard.com and provide them with screen captures of the offense in question. Also, make sure you also include your user name and the other character's user name.

Q: I was unfairly muted. What can I do?

  • A: If you believe you were unfairly muted, please contact our support department at support@blizzard.com. A Blizzard representative will inform you of the behavior in question and will also have the ability to un-mute accounts when deemed appropriate.

Q: Does muting chatters on Battle.net violate my First Amendment rights?

  • A: No. Battle.net is a private forum owned and operated by Blizzard Entertainment. Users must agree to our Battle.net Terms of Use agreement in order to make use of the chat services offered on Battle.net.

Q: Have you considered banning players in violation of the Battle.net Terms Of Use agreement?

  • A: Yes. While it is our preference not to ban players from Battle.net, we will not hesitate to do so in the event that players persistently violate the Battle.net Terms of Use agreement.
