    TL;DR - WARDEN NEEDS UPDATES, MAKE SURE YOU USE DIFFERENT LOGINS ACROSS YOUR IMPORTANT ONLINE ACCOUNTS TO PROTECT YOURSELF

    Some key points (this video is terrible so I think someone might appreciate it):
    • Farms using 100 accounts
    • Writes scripts for his own bots, and manages the accounts to run them
    • Each account can be on America and EU at the same time, doubling each accounts effectiveness
    • Approx. 300k gold for each account per hour
    • Gold prices: $12 US for 1 million, gold prices dropped by half in one day and continue to drop
    • Inflation is going to start getting outrageous if Blizzard does nothing to curb him and his kind
    • Blizzard needs to raise money sink prices to compensate
    • Approx. 10,000 accounts currently in use farming gold worldwide (this produces 72 BILLION gold per day if each account makes 300k per hour running with 100% uptime)
    • Bots run 24h a day
    • Accounts are never banned, Warden cannot see the bots and likely will not for 3-4 months he figures
    • People (farmers) are saving up tons and tons of gold for the day RMAH comes in ("people will sells billions of gold, undercutting, especially the Chinese")
    • If the farmer can't make enough money to live off of, then the game has failed in his eyes, because then the game has been ruined for everyone because of inflation
    • Saving money for RMAH with a few others, selling some gold on grey market for little bits of money

    ( at this point the retarded interviewer's CELL PHONE RINGS WTF )
    • Approx. $6000 gold USD investment for the accounts
    • Some farmers, but not him and his guys, use hacked and phished accounts ("very illegal")
    • "mostly hacking and carding" keep your PAYPAL AND EMAIL SAFE WITH DIFFERENT PASSWORDS FROM ANYTHING
    • bug in Blizzard store for EU (not specific on details)
    • accounts are bought with stolen credit card #'s often (he only buys fresh CD keys however, legitimately)
    • account hacking on Blizzard forum that was big issue a week or so ago - your computers are not being hacked, they hack FANSITES AND TEST ALL EMAIL AND PASSWORD COMBOS IN GAME (keep your D3 pass different than anything) - process is called 'comboing' - programs can create 'combo lists' with data that is hacked from other sites
    • 10 million email/passwords compromised - only 1-10% may actually log in, but that is still a great number of accounts
    • targeted sites: Diablo fan websites, Blizzard-related sites such as MMO-Champ "it's easy"
    • forums are being compromised OVER AND OVER AGAIN - Paypal, banks, Facebook accounts may be in risk because of this behavior, people with combo lists (see above) will attempt to gain access to a wide swath of sites
    • Cannot get anything out of the Blizzard website "they are bulletproof, logically"
    • what Blizz can do - "increase sinks and prevent botters" "fix farming spots and exploits"
    • Blizz is aware of all exploits and farming locations "it's all over Youtube!"
    • what if you get banned - "if we made profit, just buy new accounts and fix the problems [that got us banned]"
    • reiterates that there are idiots who will get caught by Warden, but at the moment he is undetectable with a new method that Warden cannot see at the moment

    I guess I shouldn't be surprised with the RMAH involved,

    "10 million email/passwords compromised - only 1-10% may actually log in, but that is still a great number of accounts"

    This right here proves most of the shit he's saying is talking out of his ass. I'm not even sure that 10 million people own the game yet, and even if there is, 100% of people have been compromised? FFS this guy is a blowhard.

    As for the bots? yes, theyre real. Dunno how this guy is running 100 accounts(or if he's completely full of shit on this as well, which I assume he is). What kind of hardware setup he has going to run 100 clients of the game.

    10m fan websites accounts that are used for comboing - not the actual game accounts.

    Multiple old machines running games at min details - same as botters were doing for ages. Cheap and effective.

    There's actually 200 clients going at once, as you can play on US and EU at the same time - according to the farmer (I've not tested this).

    Either way --- quite the hardware setup to handle but presumably he's also farming other games too, I'd imagine?

    Internet wise - what kind of connection are we talking about to run all of them, at once - presumably from the same location.

    This does not suprise me at all, there is simply no way the EU market would have reached this insane inflation this fast without bots going around..

    Hell, I wouldnt be suprised if these bots are partially responsible for bogging down the EU servers, back when they went down 4 times in 3 days.

    Absolute tragedy that blizzard fail to addresse this..

    Personally I don't think the EU gold AH will ever recover, my hopes now is that the rmah currency will not be so easy to corrupt, as gold sellers will want to cash out rather then spit money into the system.

    It's legit, I'm surprised it hasn't been fixed though.

    So basically if this guy alone sells the gold he makes every hour (current 12$ per mill prices) on the RMAH, Blizzard earns 108$ per hour in fee's, with current gold prices.
    That is pretty fucked up, no wonder the bots hasn't been stopped.
    All though realistically thinking, the gold prices will plummet come RMAH release, we are still talking about a lot of dollars.

    Hmmm, I think I found myself a new side gig.
    I don't mind pushing 600$ an hour doing nothing. Thank you Blizzard :D
    O_O

    No suprice at all. Some people take this to serieus. Just hope blizzard will fix all the spots quick. Don't like people making lots off cash using bots. While I play legitly.

    im loving this.

    brb buying gold.

    fucking knew it

    god damn chinese are hella smart

    Not surprising unfortunately...

    Blizzard was expectedly unprepared for this. They weren't prepared for the launch of the game period... did anyone think that they'd be prepared for the people who are actively working to dismantle their game?

    Honestly, gold inflation is going to be a huge issue in this game. To the point where I question whether people will even use gold for anything besides the artisans and repairs. And if you just buy everything off the AH you don't really need to worry about artisans.

    Maybe that will work out in Blizzard's favor though if it gets to the point where you essentially have to use real money if you want to buy items off the AH.

    One way that life is made a lot more difficult for farmers is if gold becomes completely useless. Then they actually have to pick up items and understand the different stats to some extent in order to make a profit.

    You sure can't feel good about spending hours farming legitimately while people out there are getting gold like this...

    I blame you scumbags that buy gold for this.
  • #15
    yeah those ppl are not that stupid. The ppl who buys gold are real scumbags

    Please post in that topic, here's the OP:

    Let's have a brainstorm! Remember that not all things will be acceptable. Some people might not be good at certain things, but passwords are the traditional way of handling things that everyone knows how to do.

    Really, let's hear it no matter how wild it is!

    --- Here are few things off of the top of my head:

    Now:
    - Captcha, regularly tweaked so bots can't keep up with recognizing the patterns
    - Voice Recognition, your voice only will be accepted and you repeat a random message printed on the screen every time you create a new game (not general public material right now)
    - Human-Only-Recognition, identify parts of an image, catch the meaning of a phrase, etc.
    - Mouse movements, clever and mechanically unrecognizable but still easy to understand for a real human what to do, "Move the mouse around on screen in the shape of the object that shines at night"
    - Sound recognition

    Future:
    - Iris scan
    - Fingerprint scan
    - Brainwave scan
    - Motion detector

    He has quiet good understanding of English, I'm surprised!
    From this interview, I have made some conclusions:
    1. He is a Chinese Gold Farmer, he does it as living
    2. He wants blizzard to kill all Gold Farmers by upgrading Warden, but he is pretty confident that he will be fine, at least for a while
    3. He whines about gold price dropped by half in 1 day, while he is one of the causes... oh btw, he is racist against his own country!
    4. He ignored the fact that too much gold rushing into the market will just bring up the item price --> players suffers, because we don't FARM GOLD! but FORCED to!! and yet he says he love this game that's why he want to make this interview
    5. He says blizzard is making drop rate higher, which I do believe it's a good way to counter inflation --> more goods on market, cheaper price.
    6. He is very familiar with those hacks and stuff, but he does not do that...how noble!
    Well, short conclusion, he cares only about himself, about how much money he can make from farming gold with Bots...So he want blizz to kill other farmers so he can become a monopolist...And still ruin our game...
    Agreed?

    Well, clearly the first step is to make it so one account can't log into both EU and US at the same time. The second would be something along the lines of disabling spawning at checkpoints after you NG too many times. They've already made it clear they don't want people running the same mini area for gold/chests/goblins. So, they just ID the places that give large amounts of gold without many monsters, and make so that you can only NG and spawn at that checkpoint a handful of times an hour. It will really only hurt people who are NG farming specific areas (like that Royal Crypt gold run).
