Diablo® III

Game Limits Re-Enabled (Updated)

Community Manager
Update 8/6/2012: Game limits have been re-enabled.

-----

In the near future, we'll be re-enabling the limit on how many games a player can create within a certain amount of time. We've further tuned and tested the conditions that trigger this limit to ensure, as much as possible, that it only affects those abusing the Diablo III game service in a way that violates the Terms of Use – for example, by using bots that create games in rapid succession.

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.

We will update this post and unlock the thread once game limits are re-enabled.

Make a post in the bug report forum when you see that happen so they'll get it fixed. The right people won't even see it here.

You dont even have to leave it on choose a quest. I was looking for a public game but there wasnt anyone on the quest I was looking for. Canceled it to get back to the menus screen and grabbed something to drink. As soon as I clicked on the public games again I got kicked out with the limit exceeded error.

mind sharing with everyone what exactly "game limits" entails? like, how are they limited? In number per minute? per day?

The public game join system sucks so bad that you typically have to enter & leave multiple games to find either an active game, or a game without everyone dead and a pack parked at the entrance.

Now you get to add getting logged off and possibly flagged to the list of complaints to the crappy join system.

Well that's interesting. I can't see this affecting anyone other than botters, really. Other than HC players who farm Sarkoth and Goblins legitimately. Or Warrior's Rest farmers on Act I Inferno. But who cares about them, right?
