    posted a message on Blizzards use of 'temporary restriction' is ridiculous
    Blizz Tech Support sent me a response to my e-mail in which I asked why my IP had been banned, and the tech guy confirmed that my IP had a restriction on it and that he doesnt have to ability to view the cause, but that it will be at most 2 weeks. At least they responded in a reasonable amount of time (like 2 days or so).
    And the restriciton is probably almost up since its been over a week already :D

    What were those blood splatters on the bottom of the screen that looked like they said something? May have missed it in one of the other threads.

    I believe they were some sort of awards/trophies
    From what I can see, the blood spatter states 'MASSACRE 11 Monsters Killed' Then underneath that I think it says something about an exp bonus but Im not quite positive.
    And the second blood splatter seems to say the same thing.
    Kinda reminds me of X-Box Live achievements or PlayStation Network trophies.

    I just went ahead and started an assassin on USWest to kill the time until the temporary restriction is lifted, and hopefully the person using the bot learns his lesson and doesnt use it (or avoids get caught) again.

    This new revival system makes me wonder what the 'experience costs' will be for dying (i.e. my level 87 amazon died in hell and it took 3three baal runs to make up the lost experience).

    Was it just me or was her wand shooting?

    I saw that too...She was one-shoting enemies with a tiny blue/white orb that seemed to cost her little to no mana.

    This video is of the female wizard, the player seems to be quite a bit better than the player of the male wizard.

    O.o that is true. BNet hasnt really aged too gracefully in some aspects. Hopefully whoever was using the bot has learned their lesson and will try not to get the entire dorm banned again lol.

    I have been playing Diablo 2 LOD on and off since it came out way back when. I just moved into my dorm a few weeks ago and I was able to play via the free wifi on campus, it was great.. until about 5 days ago...
    One person in my 6 story dorm also plays Diablo 2 (since we are in the same dorm, we share the same wifi router and therefore share the same IP Address) and they were using a bot and got the entire dorms IP Address temporarily banned. Im not pleased that blizzard places the temporary restriction on the entire IP Address. Now anybody in my dorm that wants to play on USEast wont be able to for the next few weeks because one person decided to use a bot (I also cannot log on to WarCraft 3 on USEast). I sent an e-mail to blizzard technical support, but they said there was really anything they could do for me. I would just switch to USWest but Id lose all of characters :( This is certainly not a very pleasant situation for me, and there seems to be nothing I can do about it.

    I think blizzard should try and come up with a better system for dealing with bots and spammers, something other than banning the entire IP address which has negative consequences innocent bystanders like myself.
