In recent days there has been another round of bans being given out for Season 19. While Blizzard never officially announces ban waves, we can see the effects from names disappearing on the leaderboards. This is likely a combination of bans for the usual mix of botters as well as a follow up on the exploit that was fixed just the other week. Most of the focus lately has been on discussions and feedback for Diablo IV, but it's good to see Blizzard still committed to Diablo III. Expect the ban waves to continue from Season to Season and for Blizzard to possibly take further steps to combat the botting issues the game faces as well as other third party programs. Senior Game Producer Matthew Cederquist have been very active on the forums lately and has not been shy about issuing ultimatums to botters.
