Temporary Lockout

What is the basis for being locked out of the game temporarily?

I was switching some items around on my mules and was locked out temporarily after finally getting on my main character and exiting a game. I've had this happen before....so I'm guessing I won't be able to play the game at all today.

I was just curious on how to prevent myself from being locked out when transfering around my mules. Is there a certain number of logins you can have in a specific time frame? A certain number of games that you can enter and exit?

You have got yourself a temp-ban from switching characters too quickly, give it 10 mins and you should be able to login, if not give it 30 mins.

Re: Temporary Lockout

it is because u are switching in / out of games too fast. u should slow down to prevent this, otherwise run a mule game or have someone hold ur items.

Thanks. For some reason I had assumed it was a 12 hour lockout....not sure where I got that from though.

The timer doesn't reset if I try to log in and get that message again, does it?

hmm. Don't keep trying. Might extend the temp ban timing. Im sure i read this somewhere in this forum.

hmm. maybe you would wan to try logging in this timing. 5mins - 15mins - 30mins - 1hour - 12 hours - 24hours - 48hours - 72 hours..

Ah, crude....I had this happen to me again, because I was killing baal with people and I guess we started going to fast >_<.

I've been locked out for about an hour now, but I've been trying it again every 10-20 minutes.

I really hope this didn't extend the lock out....I'd hate to find that I went from a 1 hour lockout to a 48 hour lock out just, because I was seeing if I could get back on >_<.

Umm no, someone on this forum did a trial by logging in over and over during his temp ban and it was only 10 minutes.

It's as irrational as can be. Sometimes it takes about 5 minutes. Sometimes it takes a day.
I have no idea who wrote the algoritme for the connection restriction, but i think he added a nice random touch to the mix.

Re: Temporary Lockout

Its always 12 hours for me =\ Whether it be switching too much, or joining/making too many games
