View Full Version : Diablo 3 Banhammer Dropped Just Before RMAH Goes Live

June 13th, 2012, 00:36
One thing Diablo 3 has that many other games do not is a 'Real Money Auction House (http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/blog/5153555)' (RMAH), which went live today for players with two factor authentication (http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/5594218404#1). Of course, mere hours before that, Blizzard publicly announced they would follow through on their promises. Accounts they have identified as cheaters and botters have been banned 'by the thousands.' (http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2012/06/blizzard-getting-ready-to-ban-diablo-iii-cheaters/) No official number is out, but the news is indicating that as people get off of work and return home to their bot-wives and bot-kids they mayfind themselves without a valid Battle.net account (http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Diablo-3-Cheaters-Banned-By-Thousands-43512.html) (possibly tied to other games like SCII and WoW). Blizzard has also included many fixes to remove/dissuade many other exploits but if their past arcane attitude toward the 'gamers of the game' is any indication, thousands will be unhappy.
