Diablo® III

Newest wave of Bans....no More Autohotkey

One more time: Blizz can ban you for anything at any time. There really is no point in obsessive lawyering for loopholes or conclusive answers.

I dont think it is too much to ask Blizz for a definitive answer on this. It is clearly a widespread issue and the questions is black and white - can we or cant we use it.

I dont mind buying the d3 mouse to use macros, I just want a confirmation that this is the case.

What your saying is akin to the national basketball association selling officially licensed steroids. If its illegal then they aren't gonna put their name on it.


Actually not, it's the equivalent of the NBA selling non-game certified basketballs AKA you can use them, but aren't legal to play with in NBA games.....
Oh wait, they do that all the time.


LMAO You pwned that guy with that point.

IF you are hitting one button, to cast 3 spells repeatedly at intervals it is the definition of automation.


No thats the definition of a macro

Have just read through this entire thread and still confused if AHK is bannable or not. I really wish Blizz would just make a specific comment on this program since it impacts so many wiz out there.

So is AHK macro for 1,2,3 spam bannable or not?

If it is, then is the only full-proof legal method to spam 1,2,3 to buy the D3 mouse?

Thay can ban you for whatever they want and even give you no specific reason. emails i read included everything under the sun wiith no specifics.

I recommend getting the diablo 3 mouse tho. just because they tell you how to set up macros for the game in the manual and it's like a diablo product not a third party product. If they ban u then then they are diks and i wont ever buy a game from them again but at least u tried to comply with TOS which is not using a third party to inferace with ur game like auto hot keys.

If you use autohotkey i recommend a random send script so it looks human at least. like ramdomly sends between 65-120ms 123.

Blizzard has responded OVER AND OVER. They've set rules that are open to interpretation (like all rules). You don't seem to understand: it doesn't matter how specific blizz is on what kinds of macro-ing is ok, and what isn't. You will always be able to argue whether it applies to x and not to y.

But in the end, it's pointless, because blizz can ban you for whatever reason at anytime anyway.

What if i hardwire connect button 2 and 3 to button 1 on my keyboard and i just spam that button 1?

no software or rollover used, the downside is you cant use button 2 and 3 separately anymore lol.

I am someone who suffers from FSHD ( a form of Muscular dystrophy ) I've seen a video of AutoHotKey and it would help me tremendously. However i've put many hours and money into this game and would not like to get banned, would i get banned if i used it?

Pressing 234 really fast while holding down left click is exactly the same in game as using a macro to do it for you by holding down 'q' . You are not gaining ANY in game benefit from this. The only benefit gained is ease of access. You are not obtaining any unfair advantage in the sense that you are dealing more DPS, freezing mobs any stronger, or any tangible in game benefit.

You are also manually controlling all input to the game. Its not automation.


As usual with all things, SNS - Shandlar has it precisely correct.

Customer support which has been %100 mum on giving a direct answer.

Blizz doesn't ban it, but they won't say that they outright allow it because they don't want it to have that kind of exposure and they don't want to encourage it.

There has neevr been a confirmed case of someone being banned for using it to play CM-WW.

Actually, if memory serves, there have been many cases of people claiming to have been banned from it, but after discussion, it always was revealed that the offender was doing something else nefarious that brought attention to their accounts. It has never been clear if they were just confused into thinking their macros had something to do with their ban, or if their accounts were solely banned for whatever else they were doing wrong, or if their macros had nothing at all to do with it. Sort of like, you'll never get a ticket for littering, but if you got arrested for something else, they might add littering to your list of charges to strengthen the case against you kind of thingy.
