xept instead of diablo 2, put in emulated servers to my response to the rest of ur post...
you see, thats actually better... that the offline will be in emulated servers, because the part of hacking that got into closed bnet, was bc of the data needed on our computers side of the system to have single player/offline mode.
with the game having no option on its own, there is no computer side data to base bots and hacks off of. all the things they need to protect to keep the servers clean will be on their side. so the only way duped items and bots really make it into the game, is if the servers themselves are hacked.
i can tell you right now, that this game will be as hack free as world of warcraft is, and for the same reason(s)
Whoa. Wait a minute. Did you REALLY just suggest that WoW is hack and/or bot free? Cause, that idea is absolutely ludicrous.
It's nothing of the sort. We've got those lovely level 1 bots teleporting around in the ground farming ores, and herbs. We've got the gold selling spam bots. We've got the gold-seller bots floating in mid-air in SW/Org. We've got the AH bots too, don't forget those!
Now then, again, you're not REALLY trying to suggest that WoW is hack and/or bot free in the LEAST bit are you?
ah thats right, the bots, oh the bots, i forgot about them now that i dont play that game. sorry i was mistaken...
however, bots in wow are there because the mobs are easy, and static, and the ground is always the same, the map never changes unless you progress in quests. so making bots are easy in wow
diablo 3 will have less hacks than wow
it will because those kind of bots running rampant in WoW, can because of its mechanics, its targeting systems and static everything. with everything in diablo 3 being (mostly) random, and with no such targeting system, those same bots cannot exist.
i suppose i cant say if any better bot will be able to lurk sanctuary for sure... but considering blizzards faith in themselves on the subject, i too, will have faith til proven wrong.
in d2 there were also hacks, but those have been prevented due to being an online only game, thus having all (most of) the data server side
i simply forsee there being no bots. could be wrong. prolly not. tho i do hafta say, if and when they do get thru, im pretty sure blizz will be hasty this time around in stomping them out. bc if im right and they are very scarce occurrances, they will be rare events and easily trackable and stopped once found (funded by the RMAH)
edit: oh also, i forgot to mention inferno and its incredible difficulty. itll be too hard for bots. much too hard. the best bots could ever hope to accomplish is farming gold (just in terms of the difficulty of the game, and assuming the bots get in at all), or very small and specific parts of inferno, which blizzard could always adjust
