Diablo® III

Ladder and self found mode...

Could go hand in hand like gamers and ramen.

It would safe Blizzard hell of a lot of work to combine these two.

Ladder should be self found only, no auction house, credit card dual wielding or trading with bots.

A race lasting about 3-6 months should be fine.

-Once the race is over the top 100 will be given a badge on their accounts. This shows the highest rank you've achieved in ladder mode. You can keep improving this badge by gaining a higher rank.

-Characters serve no need to transfer to normal mode once the race is over for these reasons:

a.One class can respec infinitely, no need for double chars.
b. The biggest reason people would want this is to transfer high end items to normal mode. This may never happen!

optionally place a max amount of playtime to avoid bots winning the race by being on 24/7. 4 hours a day should be fine, after this you can continue with your other chars. Face it, to beat bots there needs to be some kind of regulation.

What are the function of bots in ladder mode? Since there'd be no AH. Do they just sell gold? Can you receive gold and trade in Ladder games?

Sorry, never played a ladder char in D2. Just closed SC.

No, but there will most likely be a reward for top players. This means there will be bots, not money bots, achievement/reward bots.

What are you ranking people on? Experience? Cool...

Bots can play more than a human ... therefore anyone who bots on ladder will "get there" much faster than any human could... well because humans have to sleep.

If they made a ladder and ranked it on "experience" bots would win and everyone would cry and call everyone who had the badge of ladder that OP refers to cheaters... just like D2. No one cared about your ladder rank in D2... it was all about refreshing the economy.

lol ladder players buy items, this idea won't change anything. people buy items an get it delivered in a game. That is why I laugh every time I see the meaningless threads. I think Oh another person wearing rose tinted glasses without a clue.

Ladders and a SF mode. Yes.

You would need both because, like you stated, after a period of time the ladder would end and then the character would be transferred into your SF pool to continue in that mode of play.
