    Every vote will count because so many people WON'T be bothered to sign up. And the people who WILL be bothered can still cheat. If they can track IP's then what's stopping everyone from making multiple accounts? I already have one but I could make 3 more in 3 minutes. The poll was already hopelessly biased to begin with and now its just going to end up even more skewed. There is such a horrible anti-D2 atmosphere over at Gamespy that I'm sure we're going to get creamed.

    Typical gamespy poster's attitude: "Diablo is so boring just point and click. Zelda is untouchable. Why? Because its ZELDA !!! OMFG D2 haxxors !!!"

    Wuhan, it's highly unlikely that people would set up multiple accounts for it.

    Even if they did, it would be absurdly easy to track. Just look for all the guys named "asdfafgkal;dfjiad" and "botacc1/2/3/4/5/900" and remove the votes they made.

    Aha! See, you have been playing D2 so much that it has hindered your imagination. After naming all those MF runs "pindle1, pindle2 ..." it looks like creative thinking has abandoned some of us. :uhhuh:

    (But seriously, if someone was going to create multiple IDs for the vote, it isn't too hard to come up with 5 different names.)

    I fail to see how it is that Gamespy is so Anti D2.

    Because they want to make things right after obvious cheating? Would you rather they just eliminated the games from title fight?

    You don't need to make multiple accounts, just the one, for your one vote. I used bogus information to register because I don't want to be on their mailing list. Took me a minute, if that, in total. Still, I got to place my vote, legitimately. It's pretty silly this thing got out of control. It's just a poll on a general news site, not news I would have even posted but Flux has always gotten a perverse kick out of these things. :wink2: So, just take a minute and do it. You know it makes sense.

    Time to show Zelda who's boss, once and for all. Sign me up... err at least my internet alter-ego I use when i don't plan on receiving annoying spam-- Sir Archibald Kensington IV, K.C. Sir Archibald loves Diablo and wants to beat the dickens out of that bloody little leprechaun.

    Tally ho!

    How difficult would it be to make it so that after you vote it shows that you voted and doesn't allow you to vote again? Seems like that should be quite simple. ~Adam

    I bet GS now tracks three things - GS ID, IP, and cookie. Previously it tracked the latter two which allowed bots to work (disable cookies and use dymanic IP/proxy to vote). Now adding GS ID doesn't prevent multiple voting from the same person ... just that they have to do it manually (assuming GS's sign-up process is secure enough). If GS requires email confirmation of sign-up then any multiple-registering nut would need many valid email addresses ...

    ITS TAINTED! Gamespy wants Zelda to win, therefor resetting the polls now so they CAN win, cus it will when D2 fans cant cheat like they did when they won against Starcraft!

    *yep, still pissed because SC is out of the tour* :lol:

    Wuhan - Five names isn't too much.
    Ten names is tricky.
    Twenty-five names is even tougher.
    Good luck coming up with fifty names.
    Hundred individual, geniune-looking names?

    Besides, GameSpy accounts are email-based. So you'd have to set up not only an account on GS but an email account someplace, meaning that each vote would take ages.

    actually there are no checks. an old msn sign up bot could flood the hell out of the poll, i've had two accounts on the same email address for ages.
