If they have 1 account per server on servers A B C D, how does it hurt their profit to instead of running 24/7 per account on A B C or D, to run 6 hours on A B C D for each of the accounts that would normally run on only A B C or D.
It would have been, but now it’s allowing them to operate at the same efficiency while players can’t, that’s a pretty big gain for them
Swapping between servers is not an automated process.
If you have a tool that detects when you’ve hit the cap, logs you out, and swaps you to another server that you haven’t capped on, then yes. Is that tool even written yet? How much is it going to cost to buy and/or run that tool? How easy is it for Blizzard to tell that you’re regularly bumping up against the cap, swapping servers, and bumping up against the cap again? If you’re doing that, what are the odds that you’re a botter? How quickly are you getting banned now?
Now that Blizz has posted again about the types of players they removed for exploiting- and made zero mention of removing any players that did over 30 dungeons per day- it’s completely conclusive that doing 31+ dungeons a day is not an exploit.
If the white knights have any proof Blizz has taken action specifically at players for running 31+ dungeons, by all means link the source.
You mean besides the action of capping instances to 30 per 24 hours?
I do find it weird when people opposed to this change ask you to post on your classic account not your vanilla account.
It’s the “us vs them” mentality that came with the pserver crowd. It doesn’t matter how much longer we had our druids than they did. Because that druid moved on into TBC, we clearly don’t know a single thing about the class that we’ve had for 15 years.
I’m new to this whole question but I don’t quite get why so many people hate the idea.
Logistically, it seems incredible to me that anyone would want to do more than 30 instances a day. I mean, let’s assume the most valuable ones take half an hour to complete - that’s 15 hours of play in one day. Who actually plays 15 hours a day? I realise some of them take less time than that, but the longer ones, and the ones like DM that give good income, aren’t quick to run.
I’d be interested to hear from anyone who farms instances as to how many hours a day they do it because it seems crazy to want more than that.
This is by far the laziest, greediest and pathetic change that doesn’t even really address the issue at hand. Someone at blizzard needs to take a stand against Activision and do what’s best for the community at large here. Hire a small task force to deal with botters and RMT…put your damn customers first for once.
Daily reminder that this change doesn’t do much more than slightly inconvenience botters and only hurts legitimate players.
At the very least this garbage change should have been released with a UI tracker to track our total instances used, and the fact it doesn’t even have that shows how little thought they put into this change.
