3rd Party Tools! No, I am not talking about certain programs that assist you in "maps" (that FYI will get you banned). I am talking about safe, legitimate, and Blizzard approved 3rd party programs. Community X develops a program, which approved could be hosted on Arreat Summit. 1.) A lot of games now allow you to connect from the outside to see your stats. Battlefield 2, Call of Duty4, AA: Special Forces, etc. There are websites that you can simply plug in your account name or UID and pull up a page that. How about a system whereby people can put something similar to this with their D3 char. For example, if you would like to have a good laugh, take a look at my BF2 char (now you can all see how much I suck at that game: http://bf2s.com/player/43415655/)...and no, this is NOT a Rick Roll. I have done that, and never will have the need to do it again 2.) How about a program that connects to your account and characters, pulls inventory, stats, etc..Very nice for making trade lists, or just being able to view offline your char, stats, quests completed, etc.. 3.) ? Point is the idea of 3rd party programs in and of themselves are not "evil", it is purely a case by case basis. For the most part, what we have seen for Diablo 2 has been, well how should I say, not in everyone's interest. The second point to this is to help generate interest in the community, especially the developer community who play Diablo and push their energies into legitimate projects as opposed to some certain nefarious ones. As long as a program does not interact while you are online and gives ANY advantages, disadvantages, or changes gameplay in ANY way. Think about how many would love to have in their sig at the begining of ladder their char, level, times died, etc. Comments welcome!
