    Please Improve b.net....

    Title says it, I really do hope they make some changes to b.net. It has always been, in D2, a community full of bots, and these days it just seems to be a case of being rushed through to A5 hell, and gaining 80 levels in a day. I was exactly the same when I had completed the game solo, but I don't enjoy it half as much as SP.

    Take a look at the D3 gameplay trailer, players coming and going, playing through the game together, almost as if it was a SP game, but with a few friends around. This is what I want to see it like. A great friendly community, no bots/hacks, and none of this rushing and skipping parts of the story.

    If B.net keeps everything server sided datawise. I see hacks/bots NOT returning in D3.

    Remove the TP scrolls from the game and people will be forced to walk

    Fear not. Blizzard has learned a thing or two about hacking since D2.

    Hacks and cheats will probably exist, but on a small scale that does not have an influence.

    Duping is one thing that will definitely be fixed. It would be inexcusable for a modern game to have duping problems (if it can even be excused in D2).

    Maphacks they haven't fixed in SC2, and they theoretically could be only sending revealed locations to the client but that could lag etc. So maybe we'll see maphacks.

    Bots we will definitely see. There isn't a surefire way to fix them. Except maybe suing them.

    Cheats, probably not. Hacks, probably will, unless practically everything is done serverside.

    Is that confirmed, that there is no TP's in D3? I heard something about it but I haven't been following the game recently.

    That appears to be the word from the devs, in current design. Subject to change, of course.

    On the other hand, there will be Waypoints about every 10 minutes to make up for it.

    The bots are going to be a big issue now that the game will have some sort of auction system. There's thing they can do about it (that you can see from WoW) but it will still happen.

    The worst bots are the ones who are stashed outside an auction house, buy up "necessary" items and then re-post them at much higher prices, thus monopolizing the AH. I've seen it in every game I've played with an AH and it ruins the entire trade game.

    D2 still didn't run with significant interaction from a central server. D3 will. This is what will make the difference.

    There is absolutely no excuse for it to be in D3. There are tonnes of games available now without any duping issues.

    That it was possible in D2 was nothing short of incompetence from the developers.
