Blizzard Re-Enables Diablo 3 Game Limits to Battle Bots
Blizzard has re-instituted limits on how many games users can run simultaneously in Diablo 3, in order to keep players from using bots in the game and messing with its economy.
According to a post on Battle.net, Blizzard is testing the addition of game limits on players, and is looking for feedback from the community to make sure the function is working properly. The idea is that Blizzard wants to stop the use of bots that allow their users to farm items and gold without actually playing the game. Blizzard says that that can mess with the economy of the in-game auction house, as well as the stability of the game (especially given the fact that Diablo 3 is online-only).
Blizzard says that players should be on the lookout for warning messages that state, “Input limit reached.” If you get those messages and you don’t think you deserve them, you can post on the Battle.net thread about the game limits and explain the circumstances of the situation.
