    Realm Lockout

    Every now and then I will get locked out of a particular realm for some time. I think this period lasts around a half hour and only affects the last realm I was playing on. This usually occurs when I am entering and exiting games frequently to hop mules. Does bnet have a mechanism that prevents excessive room entries or character swaps? If so, exactly how many triggers and in what time period causes the lock out? Thanks

    The bnet servers do have exactly this. Searching the forums for temp bans doesn't give much of an exact answer as to what frequency of char swaps/game changes will cause it though that I could find.

    A pretty accurate rule is max 3 games / minute and max 20 games / hour. You should also avoid swaping characters or skills too qcuikly. That can get you banned aswell.
