I wonder when Blizzard will remove bosses or remove loot from bosses because people farm them for loot :oPosted in: Diablo III General Discussion

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from TelsakExcept DarkerD3 doesn't do ANYTHING to your computer that Blizzard can detect. I'm sorry but that's just them giving a standard response to any mod question about D3. All it does it puts a dll file in the game directory that overrides that windows standard directX dll file. Nothing more.
This even works for WoW and various other games and I have yet to hear about anyone getting banned on WoW for using the ENBseries directx file.
Like people explained in forum threads about this already.
You agree that you will not, under any circumstances:
Changing a .dll file to run the game IS use of unauthortized third-party software designed to modify the Game experience.
But it seems like the TS doesn't want to talk about this mod specifically, his point is more that Diablo 3 doesn't allow mods or custom content to be created for the game. That is a choice developers make. WoW is rather complex and they allow mods to change the UI, for Sc2 it makes perfect sense to have custom maps, Blizzard even went a step further and people are making whole new games using Sc2. Diablo 3 is a bit different, the UI should be sufficient, there is a lot of content in the game, the dungeons are randomly generated. For the price you pay you get a really well designed game to keep you busy for plenty of hours.
What would you want to change about Diablo 3? Well I'm not sure, I don't think I would change the UI much if any, I think allowing the UI to be modded would end up with clever people finding ways to gain an unfair advantage so the game would be played differently from how it was designed to be played.
Maybe custom content, such us giving people tools to create their own dungeons or dungeon puzzle pieces. But any type of custom game is something that is separate from how D3 is designed to be played as. Think about WoW, there is no WoW map editor, or custom raids creation tools. There COULD be, but since WoW is about loot and gold (as Diablo is) any custom content couldn't be part of the existing world. Just like Sc2 where any ladder games are played with official maps. All the custom games are unranked.
Would you play custom D3 games where you would not get any gold of items? Maybe. Tiny chance though.
I would totally understand the choice from the developer to have players play the game they designed instead of giving players the tools to create their own game. (Especially wit the RMAH, you really want people to play the game and use the RMAH.)

Actually in your opening post you changed what Blizzard actually said.
But yeah, it CAN get you banned, he didn't say you WILL get banned.
The thing is, it is against the TOS, so you shouldn't do it, because it CAN get you banned.
But what they mostly don't want is that people modify things to gain an advantage, either making the game easier or cheating to get items/gold more easily. Yes the mod is designed to only change colors hue and saturation but at some point someone will/may find a way to exploit that or modify the mod to actually add features that would give the player an advantage. Until then I think it should be fine, but the warning still stands, it is against the TOS and it CAN get you banned.
Just play the game as it's meant to be played. It's designed as a game that you just jump into and play, it's not an arts and crafts package.
