Diablo 3 Leaderboard removals and suspensions dished out

Diablo 3 Leaderboard removals and suspensions dished out

Blizzard is not happy with some Diablo 3 players due to the use of exploits so they have taken action and handed out penalties.

A couple weeks ago, an exploit was discovered in which Necromancers could receive an unfairly high advantage over other classes. Utilizing this exploit required both implicit knowledge and intention to execute and, as a result, we are issuing account suspensions and removing affected records from the leaderboards.

You may be wondering why we’re executing this now rather than when we originally fixed the exploit; the long and short of it is that this was a very complicated issue to track and we are, as always, dedicated to ensuring we are not punishing players who may be innocent.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to maintain as honest and fair a gaming environment as we can.

    1. In other news, Players are not happy with some Blizzard developers due to them ignoring feedback both good and bad, failing to address critical issues and bugs with the game, in some instances for several years and the overall lack of meaningful support of improvement in both gameplay and key ‘quality of life issues’ so they have taken action and no longer log into the game.

      • That is something pretty endemic to Blizz. Their speed of action depends on the popularity of the game and how much the problem could affect the perception of the game. D3 is not in the public eye and so changes take much longer than if a problem would occur with Overwatch. And even there they aren’t so quick to respond.
