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, 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 thread about the game limits and explain the circumstances of the situation.

It’s just starting to seem like they WANT the game to die…

They just don’t know how to make a good single or multi-player game anymore. Ever since blizzard was acquired by activision it’s been all down hill. They no longer care about their customers and only want what makes the most money. People purchased diablo thinking you could have fun playing the game on single player. Instead, you had blizzard nerfing anything that was fun to do and the only people who got ahead were those who cheated. The only thing that is diabolic about the game is how short and unsatisfying the game is.

Gotta love how the presumption of guilt is on the player from the get-go……
