VPN ban = no d2 outside of my home

Out on a week long work trip and can’t kick back at the end of the day in my hotel on playing D2 on battle.net.

I get VPN ban is likely to access user data more effectively? But just know its annoying afffffffffffff.

Rant over.

I can help you with this, but not everyone else. Pm me I will tell you the legit patch through.

Next time try tethering off your phone data. The latency is high, but if you’re close enough to a cell tower the game is playable on B.net

Atnt is really nice for this. There are other tether off your phone tricks too if you sit back and think about it.

I didnt know vpn would freaking get you banned.

I use my home internet, my cellphone w/ hot spot, public wifi in my work dorms (I work remote and live at work half the year), and I’ve used various hotels and other public WiFi. I’ve never once been banned or locked out. This includes public and hotel WiFi in other countries.

I feel like there’s a lot of botters crazy enough to think Blizzard is going to help you bypass their detection methods. You DO NOT need a VPN to play and they are banned so give it up.

What are you talking about and what conclusive statement are you trying to make?

I am having the same issue. On a work trip and just quarantined in this state and just wanna kick back and grind some old school. they should release the temp ban for using business wifi/base wifi during this time of national crisis.

Yeah… It is their way of restricting people form hiding user information, meta data, COM usage, etc…

I understand its usage and purpose. Stinks most hotels only offer VPN service.

If you are on a military base the Air Force Inns internet wifis will not get u banned. I’ve tested this out in multiple regions and bases. If you connect to many public wifis you don’t get banned. If you hot spot your phone you don’t get a ban… If you’re getting bans don’t use that internet, blizz isn’t going to whitelist bogus IPs so ya’ll can keep botting to no end.

Nobody is asking for a whitelist, and location is not relevant. What mattered 6 months ago when I wrote this post is the hotel I was at used a VPN and I made a rant about it.

Your stating locations like it is relevant, and referring to us as botting. Bro I play d2 on my downtime. Because your bases don’t use a VPN or virtual machine, or a few hotels the military has put you up in didn’t, doesn’t mean we’re botting and got a restriction because of the bans we got trying to play at a hotel ahahhahahahaha

Used hotels wifi, so I used a VPN and now I am unable to play D2 online.
Sorry dont know how to pm, are you able to help?

What kind of router do you use?

Small price to pay for a bot-free bnet, amirite? Amirite guys? Oh wait, I forgot that anyone can make a level one character and open the public games list. Sorry. I would link the numerous blue posts advising the use of a VPN for technical issues regarding their other games, but I’m too lazy for that.

Myrepublic router that was supplied with my internet package and ith Linksys Velop.

Log into your router and change the mac address. This will help lift your ban.
