Diablo III players will soon have fresh limits imposed on them by developer Blizzard.
At some stage “in the near future” Blizzard will limit how many games a player can create within a specific, as of yet unspecified timeframe.
“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 had previously restricted game access for those who obtained the game digitally and still restricts player access and progress for the first 72 hours.
