post #26731 of 29766

So I guess the next topic should be....think all those evil botters are going to get banned?....and since they are also detected....maphack users?

post #26732 of 29766
Why would I care about botters now, when all important items are soulbound? It's not like they're touching my enjoyment in any way, shape or form.

I dont see why they wouldn't. Influx in sales + reduce 2/3 of all server load.

Playing competitive in D3 pretty much means you are expected to bot. You bot too grind for great rift keys, crafting materials, upgrade lower gems, bump to paragon. Bots are a plague to the community as a whole. I bot, and I dislike it.

^lol- but sounds like you are right (like Crazy says, get GR keys or whatnot). Though Rhyyker (sp?) or whoever is beating the current drum might disagree. tongue.gif

Someone should do a info dump on the leader boards: Hours played vs. Hours since season open. I would poke a guess the average would be 12 hours a day minimum, and probably closer to 20.

Well this season is a little different. You can get 100+ bill/hour botting solo, so that is somewhat noticeable... especially the more "casual" you are.

I couldn't find anyone until rank 35 or so that had any possibility of being legit (under 500 hours lol). I didn't look at every single person, just the ones I thought had a chance to not be botting.

I would speculate that a certain bot company charging $5.34 per early access code made more money in January than Blizzard did on D3 sales.

If I was Blizzard, I would either (A)silently buy the bot company or (B)start cracking down. (A) has the potential to be incredibly lucrative for not allot of work, but getting caught in that would damage Blizzard beyond just the dying D3 name. They sponsor and host a ton of other competitive events and have a name to hold. #TOO RISKY (B) Is a lot more realistic. D3 gets a broom closet with an intern manning the station at Blizzcon. They are done with D3...the cash inflow cannot be all that much better than the cost to maintain servers and pay the development crew...it is not a bread winner. Anything they can do to minimize server load and increase new sales will be a boon...banning botters will do both. From a financial standpoint, allowing the bots to get real bad before a ban wave makes the most sense...it stands to have the biggest effect on their $$$in/$$$out.

I am done with this season already. Reformatted the SSD it was on to make room for my hello kitty collection videos, and user manuals for products I don't own anymore, and (of course) more horse and goat porn (THANKS JT!). It is a much better use of storage space.

And I am out

@Crazy9000 - in the view you used, does it show hours on that specific toon only? I would imagine there have been a lot of alternate toons built for specific tasks/builds as the season progressed that may not have gotten the # of hours as some of the others. I think there is a way to see hours played on a class, but I'm not sure if there is a seasonal breakdown for that (I'm sure there is, and if so, that is probably what you're viewing smile.gif)

@inedenimadam - I honestly don't think there will be a large positive influx of monies. There will likely be some, but I'd image a lot of people would either quit, or have multiple accounts ready. I believe a lot of people on here have multiples.

If forget the name of the option when viewing profile, but there is one that has a bar for all the classes. That shows the hours played per class in the season, and deleting a character doesn't take the hours out of that. 400+ hours total this season = obvious bot.

The problem is, if you do a ban mid-season, a large amount of people aren't coming back. They've already played this patch a bunch, and are now way behind were they were... and especially if they won't be able to bot anymore, and would have to grind a ton of torment if they wanted to come back.

If you ban right when the season ends, they have been reading about and looking forward to the new patch. You're more likely to drop the money on the game again, since you want to try out the new patch... especially with the new season giving a fresh start anyways.

A ban wave right now would devistate the D3 community by removing a lot of active players. That's assuming they just go after the botters too... if they go after anyone even using turbohud, I think the game will be pretty much dead.

^yep, that is the view I figgered you were using. What I do know is that yesterday/last night was about the most quiet I've seen it, and I'm not talking the clan (that is always quiet at season end especially). The WD community for example was super quiet, and the barb community was almost non-existent. All I heard there were loincloths flapping in the breeze...at least I hope those were loincloths I heard. redface.gif
