Game limits to be reinstated in Diablo III

Tuesday, 17th July 2012 16:48 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Blizzard has announced it plans to reinstate the limit on the number of game which a player can launch in Diablo III in order to stamp out bots and exploits.

Here’s the statement in full:

“In the near future, we’ll be re-enabling the limit on how many games a player can create within a certain amount of time. We’ve further tuned and tested the conditions that trigger this limit to ensure, as much as possible, that it only affects those abusing the Diablo III game service in a way that violates the Terms of Use ā€“ for example, by using bots that create games in rapid succession.

“The use of bots not only impacts the stability of the game service, but it also has an impact on the player-driven economy. While we regularly take action against accounts for the use of unauthorized third-party programs and bots, this additional measure will help us further preserve and protect the integrity of the game and economy in between ban waves.

“Once this change goes live, we’re looking for your feedback to help ensure that the limit is working as intended. If you encounter the “Input limit reached” message and feel you should not have, please let us know how many games you were creating and why. This information will help us ensure the limit minimally impacts legitimate players while still protecting the game against bots.

“We’ll continue to tweak the game limit as necessary, as well as continue to go after the few cheaters and botters that are out there in other ways. Our goal is to help ensure that Diablo III continues to be a fun gaming environment for all of our players, and we’re looking forward to hearing your feedback on this change once it goes live.”

Blizzard said it will update the post and unlock the thread through the link once game limits are re-enabled.
