Q u o t e: @Spam111 Sorry, Spam111. It was not my intent to insult you. I was just making a point. There is so much information on restrictions and bans that if players took the time to read through just some of it and would be willing to adjust their play-style, then these restrictions could be avoided. When you spam yourself in and out of games like you were swatting flies, you can only expect to get restricted. Now, you want someone to count for you and let you know when you've reached your limit?
One other link I forgot to mention is on the Technical Support Forum. It's Maged's thread Temporary Restrictions
BTW, I've played D2:LoD since it was first released. The last two years I've played Ladder games, only. I currently have two accounts with 16 characters and mule like a bat-out-of-hell. To date, I have never been restricted or banned, temporarily or permanently. I have my original, 10 year old discs and CD-keys. I've been through 3 computers and 2 ISPs.
"Going in and out of games too quickly (most common cause). i.e. Muling, magic finding, Baal/Pindleskin runs, etc."
Is 3 minutes too quick? Maybe lengthen it to 5? Or is 10 the safe number.
The thing is I can play for about 2-3 hours with no problems whatsoever, then get slapped with a nice temporary restriction after leaving a game. It just seem so random. A warning would at least let me stop on my own accord and would take away any right to complain about being restricted.
Unless it's difficult to implement, I don't see why they shouldn't add this.
