Diablo III Bans

The Diablo III Website announces Blizzard has recently handed out a bunch of bans to Diablo III players for violating the terms of service for Blizzard's action/RPG sequel. They don't specify how many accounts are barred due to this, but they do offer more details on why: "In each of these cases players used a hack program for exploitive purposes, for example to zoom out their game view and kill monsters that were beyond the normal range at which AI is triggered. As we do with all Blizzard games, we will continue to monitor Diablo III for cheating and take action as needed." They outline various actions that could trigger such discipline so players can make sure they are keeping their noses clean. On a related note, Blend Games continues their criticism of the game by rounding up reports of Linux users who claim they have been banned after playing the game through WINE, unmoved by Blizzard's comments that they cannot guarantee that users of an unsupported operating system may be incorrectly tagged as hackers.

This is more of another way the Diablo 3 devs failed to me. Why wouldn't you put a catch in so if a monster gets damaged their AI turns on.

Exactly. If the game were written properly, it reward stealth, but would react to damage.

I didn't buy D3 because of the online requirement, but the bans mean I won't be buying any other Blizzard game either.

I generally play single-player games, and if I get stuck, I turn on God mode just to see the end. The idea of banning people who paid for a single-player game from playing it because they cheated makes no sense.

Banning people or using a camera mod is such bullshit.
Don't really know anything about the camera hacks, but if as the tidbit says it allowed the killing of mobs outside the "range at which AI is triggered." Then I'd say it should be a ban-able offense.

And I'd bet that if I were to log in the same 20 gold selling bots would have my friends request list entirely filled.

Well, this happens all the time, there are certain chasms and reaches in the game that allow the DH and Wiz to blast elites from distance. So itís really no big deal. The other part of this is, if it wasnít for the fricking RMAH this would not be an issue. God forbid that anyone take advantage of the game other than Blizzard.

I'm still dumbfounded by how we've reached the point where you aren't allowed to cheat in a single-player game.

Being banned in a game you can play offline is no big matter but here that's another story. Once again a good reason not to buy it.

Damn I'm glad I never bothered with this bullshit game, a camera view mod? They can go f*themselves.  
The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.That is easy.All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.It works the same way in any country.

Ban Jay Wilson.

Agreed, hes the biggest cheat of them all.

Banning people or using a camera mod is such bullshit. Blizzard is going down the tubes very quickly. I love how they ban people for using that mod but its ok for people to mod the UI to hell and back in WOW. Bunch of fricking hypocrites!
