The act of account sharing is something that developers have rallied against in recent years, handing out fines and suspensions to players for doing so as it affects the competitive integrity of the game.
This isn't the first time Blizzard issues massive Overwatch bans in the region. In January of last year, 10000 Overwatch accounts were banned for cheating in South Korea alone. Following that, Blizzard cooperated with the Seoul National Police Agency's Cyber Security Department to identify 13 hackmakers for Overwatch and assist in their arrest.
