I think we are 9 months to late on that.


100% agree
I really hope you guys are able to eliminate all the botters and hackers that way you can realize how few real people playing this game because its in big need of major improvements(which are posted all over the forums)
I think we are 9 months to late on that. Already messed up economy as I have 150 hours played and picked up only a couple million yet items sell for billions. Even this forum has top 10 posts for someone selling gold. They create a post for selling gold then spam it pushing it to top 10...Only a fraction of people are still playing.

When is the PvP being released that was marketed as included as part of the game...


lol @ 150 hours played.
from what I can tell this ban wave was extremely extensive. great job blizzard

We've recently issued account bans to several thousand Diablo III players

Pardon me. This sentence let us think you actually did not much in the last few days/weeks in this regard and that you do big number bans every 3-4 months instead of doing bans a few times a week, up to a few bans every day.

But whatever, dunno if it's a coincidence but I was monitoring price on specific pants and now that you annonced this, a few that were cheaper than everything else since the last 2-3 days are now gone. It could be that or they were sold because of the low price.

Thank you for such monitoring. That is something I wish I had the chance to do, chasing and investigating the cheaters.
Botters made thousands of dollars so no big deal. Too bad bots weren't banned earlier instead having to alter how people play. Break ash vases, open chests, chase goblin. I heard one guy made like $25,000 so far. Blizzard keeps sending him email -- you need to report tax earnings.
Well done Blizz team,very happy this banwave is smacking all cheaters/botters into oblivion.
I got banned, I didn't bot and no email received...
So did this action just ban the accounts physically running the bots or did Blizzard also trace the gold and item trades to the mule and main accounts of these botters and ban them as well?

The accounts that are physically running the bots are easily replaced tools of this nefarious trade. Hopefully the accounts holding the billions and billions of illicit gold and items harvested by these bots got whacked as well, causing them to lose everything.

Otherwise they are probably already back to business as usual.
So what about the peoples accounts who were banned wrongfully? also no email either and i cant even log into my account that was banned to even say this.... kinda messed up.
Although i applaud blizz for banning the bots. I just lost a ton of botting friends. Without friends to play with, and having hit 100 few days ago, i think there is really nothing much to play for now...
all botters are cheats, friends or not!

Well done to Blizzard - this affirmative action might actually bring more people back to the game!
I Thank Blizzard from my heart for this step. though little bit late, but its never too late. Now i am feeling rejuvenated to play this game more than ever. Continue the good work Blizzard.
thanks once again.

Doubtful, Economy is already trashed.

hard to argue, but I can hope!

One thing is for sure and that is that it is becoming increasing difficult to sell all but "uber" items on the auction house. items that Used to sell for $1-$5M are often going straight to the vendor nowadays. ...
Good job!
