Last week we reported that Blizzard had implemented new security features into the rapidly clicking Diablo 3, which prevented new digital orders from progressing past Act 1 for up to 72 hours. This doesn't seem to be the case anymore with a hotfix being pushed out today that will remove the Act 1 restriction, however keep the other, less evasive restrictions in as Blizzard explains.
Players who download the game will only have the following temporary restrictions:
  • No public game access for unverified digital purchasers
  • No auction house access (real-money or gold) for unverified digital purchasers
  • Unverified digital purchasers cannot trade items or drop items for other players to receive
  • Unverified digital purchasers are not able to chat in any public or game channels
  • Unverified digital purchasers cannot attach a custom message to friend requests, but they can send/accept friend requests, and play with their friends
  • Global Play is not available for unverified digital purchasers
  • While many saw the previous restrictions as a flaw in allowing players to enjoy a product they have fully purchased, it does show that Blizzard cares about your enjoyment while also keeping security as tight as possible.

    In other good news, the hotfix today will be increasing drop rates for high-end items in Inferno Act's 3 and 4, a welcome change by many. You can check out the full list over here on the official blog, including some bug fixes and changes to boss drops as well.

    Good changes with the drop rates, but most people I know are pretty over the game already. It by no means has the longevity of D2.

    Indeed, i find myself going back to D2 for my Diablo Fix. I only play D3 because of my mates and to make some cash (made 8 bucks last night after tax heh) with any luck with the improved drops i may get something worth a little more.

    I make that every 15 minutes having a job. Maybe you should look for a better income.
