Diablo III Game Limits Returning

The Diablo III Website announces Blizzard's plans to reinstate limits on the number of games a player can launch within a given time period to help curtail exploits and the use of bots. Here's a bit:

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.

leading to a reduction in its price, and of comparable items.

Except that's not what's happening. The "enterprising people" aren't generating more items, they're generating more gold, which is causing rampant inflation due to the rate at which bots can introduce new capital into the system. Regular, i.e. non-botting, players can't keep up.

At the same time though, if the gold AH was anything like sane, nobody would be spending money on the RMAH, and blizzard wouldn't be making 15 bucks off of a 100 dollar video game weapon.

Which bakes my noodle...


Ahem. Sorry I'm under control now. But the idea that it's actually happening is just f*cking crazy sauce to me.

Dude, you express my exact feeling about this game and the AH. Itís utterly stupid how it is on there. It drives me crazy when I see how much people are asking for an item. I put items on there for 5 dollars and still they donít sell. So Iím like how in the hell is anyone really making anything off the AH.

The other part of this that drives me bananas is the Inferno difficulty. Blizz absolutely refuses to fix it, and they have even admitted that itís broken.

So now they want to limit our logins to a certain amount of times per hour. Great!, all my brother and I do for an hour or two is login, run the two areas in Act 2 for Goblin kills and log back out. So now they want to fuck us over on that too. Awesome!!

All they want is to FORCE us to spend money on items. Sorry not me!!
More nails in this coffin please! Where oh where are you Torch Light 2?
