The agency has been infiltrating RPGs, posing as players, purportedly to root out potential terrorist communications.
Besides the NSA, British counterpart GCHQ was also involved in the operations, say the documents.
The files did not suggest that any terrorists were ever caught, but there were apparently so many undercover agents at one time that there was talk of starting a "deconfliction group" to prevent agents from spying on each other in the networks.
Both Blizzard and Microsoft say they are not aware of any surveillance on their players but most certainly did not grant permission to do so if anyone was spying.
