Been thinking about other reasons beside the botters. If they are planning on moving D2 to the launcher, could they be limiting or throttling the bandwidth while they work on installing those servers to the launcher? I have no clue if testing that system would really take up much time, as it should be fairly easy to do.
But at this point, there has to be more on the admin side then just bots causing these issues. Yes, the bots make it way worse, but I just believe after this long, and resetting lasts 1 to 2 days at tops, there is something else going on. Cant see anything in the last group of patches that would cause major issues. I know they lost the original source code, but that shouldnt be causing serious problems like this.
They could be dwindling down the servers by hoping people leave from issues. But then why would they still be selling the game on their website? I thought they would of killed D2 after the launch of D3 to force people to buy the game, but they didnt. So I dont think that is the case for these issues either.
Any other ideas besides “Bots” or “Activision/Blizz is a bad company” response? Both of those ideas have been stated plenty and nothing new will come from restating them for a million more times.
