Clearly I see a lot of raging on this thread.
As much as I hate blizzard's stellar customer support I'll have to agree on them for this point.
Three people having an issue on this case doesn't constitute an unnecessary ban. For all we, the unsuspecting trolls attempting to gain attention, know the OP and all of the people claiming to have been affected by this somehow were hacking or exploiting D3 in some way.
If 10, 20, or even 50 people had an issue they might bother looking into it but not for 3 people. 3 people for a company that serves for millions doesn't affect them that much.
So please, wave around your resume a little more saying you've worked for a major video game company, have dealt with this crap for years, and know exactly what the OP or those affected are having an issue with and tell blizzard how to run their company a little more.
As for Bashiok, I think he has a few reasons to sit here trolling you for a bit before sauntering off to whatever post catches his eyes again. Only to continue being the "big bad mod" who clearly never does anything for the majority of blizzard players. If you don't like it go play some !@#$ty F2P mmo off steam or something.
again some1 with no idea about linux and hardware....
ive 5 computers (2 pc's 3 laptops) here (not all mine ofc)
and i can GUARANTEE u that if i install:
1)the same linux distri on everyone of those machine, that i will get at least 5 different hardware parts that require certain drivers/packages to work
2)a different linux distri: the number of unsupported hardware and steps i have to go through to make it work, may well be higher
to get a computer running and everything single piece of hardware working under unix can mean A LOT of trouble.
=> there is 100.000s different linux configurations out there (probably just for ubuntu... counting other distris, the number would be WAY higher)
and that blizzards "extansive testing" sure as hell didnt cover all of those possibilities.
Blizz tested like 2 days and found no error and u guys srsly believe that there DEFINETLY is no error with certain configurations? <--LMFAO
