Seriously so much crying. If people spent half as much time playing the game as they do crying about bots they would actually be pretty god damn geared.
Blizzard will continue to do work to prevent cheating. It isn't as widespread as everyone thinks. Its bloody hard to stop cheating ask valve about counterstrike, see diablo 2, TRUST me when i say diablo 2 was way way worse.
i disagree. I spend a good amount of time farming items. I am not pretty god damned geared. Found about 3-4 good items that sold for around 140mil. botting easily > my hard earned playing hours.
I seriously don't think d2 was way worse. If you think about it, people knew rmah would be included in this game. You don't think since its 2012 the botters are waay more prevalent compared to early 2000? of course they are. I bet there are waay more accounts that bot in d3 than d2. id bet my account on it.
True there were botters before, and there will be botters after the paragon system.
The system itself inherently rewards botters by setting an impossibly high bar, that essentially punishes those at the bottom and rewards those at the top, a top which is infinitely easier to grasp when there is little to no effort from you.
Finally a shred of intellect out of you. That is a problem. There isn't much of a solution though and until there is there isn't much anyone can do about it. Players still have the ability to farm that $250 dollar item it's just unlikely. It's more likely that a botter will find it 5x before you but that doesn't remove the possiblity of you finding a godly item and a godly item will always be a godly item no matter how many times it's farmed.
You're referring to the margin in between. The fact that the "Less godly" items are cheaper is great for casual players. That means that gear that would typically cost the casual a TON of gold now doesn't cost so much. He now has better gear to farm for those "Godly items"
The slot machine now only pays out on "Jack pots" instead of lesser combinations. I'm not really seeing that problem. The bar is raised but thats fine. Botters are also ruining it for themselves that way.
