    Temp bans

    Is it just me, or are the servers far more eager to dole out "temporary restrictions" than they used to be? When I last played (2004), I received one temp ban in all my time playing, and that was when I was hurriedly switching between lots of different mules.

    Today I was temp banned 5 different times, just while doing Meph runs. Not even particularly quick Meph runs. I'd tack on Andy or Countess any time I had a quick Durance Lvl 2 layout, and I'd wait about 15 seconds before creating a new game.

    Resetting the DSL modem gets around the IP ban, but that's a pain (especially when I'm in bed, as I am now).

    Anyway, is this a widely recognized thing, or am I just having terrible luck? What do you guys to do avoid it?

    Cheers

    Creating more than 20 games/hour will get you a temp ban more often than not.
    Sometimes you can get a temp ban without a real reason. It all comes down to server budgetting from Blizzards side.
