    The issue of botting has been around Diablo 3 for a long time, but has become much bigger in recent months as new and improved bots let players cheat the system more effectively. Unlike in the Diablo 2 days, Diablo 3 botting isn't really done for legendary items (since those drop so fast during normal play), or even for EXP (since high level multiplayer games earn it 50x faster than solo).

    [caption id="attachment_386270" align="alignright" width="250"][​IMG] RedX's inventory.[/caption]EXP and Items can be botted, but botters are mostly after commodities such as Death's Breaths, materials, and Greater Rift Keys, which are tedious to farm. This makes it pretty easy to spot botters, especially when they stream and show off inventories with thousands of Rift Keys, countless 5k stacks of mats, etc. Not to mention all the high ranking players whose entire downtime this season amounts to about how long it takes to log off and back on again.

    We've talked about the botting issue quite a bit on the last couple of podcasts, and in our current vote lots of you guys vote that it's a big issue for you. So what's Blizzard doing about it? Not enough, in the opinion of most legit players, and with so many obvious and/or admitted botters high up on the leaderboards, fans might ask in sarcastic exasperation... "What does it take to get banned for botting? Live video evidence?"

    Actually, yeah, that'll do it. Diablo 3 Botter Banned After Streaming Botting:



    The story, which you can see in the above video and hear related in amusing fashion in our latest podcast (coming shortly) is that RedX, a well-known clan leader and streamer, did his usual evening of gaming, and when he went to bed he forgot to shut down his stream before he turned on his bot. Thus his live stream showed a full evening of his Monk playing under the control of a bot. Hundreds of fans watched it live and tweeted/posted about it as time passed, enough that (apparently) even Blizzard couldn't ignore it.

    What's this mean for botting at large? Nothing, probably. If anything, the RedX incident seems to be serving as an advertisement for botting. After all, thousands more players now know how easy and profitable it is to run an automated tool, and how blatantly a player has to fail in order to be punished for doing so.

    I agree 100 % when there evidence and proof dudes must be banned , but Im bannede for using bots even 'i dont know what it was before I get banned( I dont know for how long ) and since i only can play for 45 minutes before my comp shut Down overheating and must wait another 45 minutes before I can play again most dudes have told me it would be impossible for me to use so called bot and most dudes believe me , the problem about banning imo are that YES a lot of bannet dudes derserves it but it also hit a lot of innocent players. I think that blizz should focus a Little on evidence and not using a shotgun and a lot of dudes agree about that on other sites where 'I have put the same thread as here. so my question is this is it ok to ban 100 dudes where maybe and I say maybe 10 are innocnet ??? And plz dont tell me they all are guilty :)

    Many has. I think Diablo is an antisocial game. Let Blizzard stop promoting multiplayer play and push social people to Wow ;)

    Blizzard didn't shoot themselves when they made the game online-only. The only people to shoot themselves were the morons who bought it.
