The other day Blizzard decided to do a massive banwave on various players.
There was one known offender who even got shut out during his stream. Of course, the most probable cause was the demand for an end to botting, while the specifics of what the offense entailed remain tight lipped. Certainly, from a programming position, in my opinion botting is interesting in that people can even get programs to the extent of automating game play.
Off let me say that I neither condone nor endorse botting.
Diablo 3 severely unbalances things like leaderboards.
Most people who take the game seriously hate the idea of botting/cheating. There’re people who enjoy pushing their names up and you’ll see a few names arise when they hit a top rank.
Nevertheless, no offense to the developers but we can’t see huge prizes and players from worldwide competing worldwide. I feel that people who take this game as something worthy of an esport position right now in time are pushing the boundaries of what they seek in the game. Let’s be honest and say that this game really ain’t esports material. With that said, that’s fine since the game rewards the time and effort you put in as opposed to raw skill. The parameters for being the top of the leaderboards do not require skill, mostly time and a willingness to dig in. No matter what at this stage the game still is unbalanced and ain’t really in that state where you can say people at a certain skill level will have an equal chance against another person of similar skill.
For myself, it’s perfectly fine being that I can still have fun in various ways without being crazily devoted.
Not just a few hours but for weeks, months even.
It wasn’t even fun and there wasn’t a bunch of viability nor variety. It’s a casual friendly game and there’s nothing wrong with that. Compare that to when Diablo 3 was first released and catered to those who had deep pockets or a willingness to grind for gear. Because of Twitch, the real problem is really not because of the game. So here is a question. Why is botting/cheating a problem?
Twitch has created both a haven and a land of toxicity where people think that the golden egg is partnership being that then they can just reap money through subscriptions and potentially donations.
That is a great thing.
Whenever doing nothing, playing games all day rather than being ‘semi useful’ to society with a job or furthering their education, What is wrong is when people confuse this motive with the notion of staying in the premises. Just boring as hell, no communication with the viewers. Second, therefore this person managed to climb the leaderboards through these means and was supported by the community for god knows what reasons. Now pay attention please. In the case of Diablo 3, To be honest I can see why people had their pitch forks since the person who was most notorious for botting was a terrible representative for the community. The notification this streamer was sending to the community at large was, it’s okay to cheat/bot so that you can imitate me, hopefully get your top slot on the leaderboards and after all you can sit in the premises all day long, play games and get money from stupid viewers.
His streams were horrible.
That said, this person and others in his clan would use exploits to further their rankings, that for many people could never be obtained.
It’s nice to think that one can simply stay indoors, play all day, bot all night while sleeping, get viewer money and push up the ranks. Had great videos on what one could do to better themselves or was at the very least entertaining in personality, I’m certain that there will have been some leeway, I’d say in case this person presented some type of education to improve their play. One problem that I do see is that unfortunately removing this player also meant that their last bastion of someone propping up Diablo 3 on the game channel ranking is gone. Usually, at the moment, there’re no major streamers that can hold Diablo 3 up looking at the page views at the moment.
Game is pretty much after the season and once the next season starts, it shall be popular again.
The guy was a single person left to really play Diablo 3 at the moment when most people have moved on.
Better yet the leaderboards should be cleared and hopefully Blizzard’s banwave will send a definitive message to this person and similar members of his clan to avoid those gray areas. There’s no other reason to risk all that effort. Generally, my interpretation of the person in question was that he probably felt insecure about his position and needed to rank on top just to maintain his viewer count, subscriptions and donations. That said, this whole episode shows the absurdity of the situation. Actually, let’s say, perhaps the first level 70s, the first to hit certain conquests, the first to hit a minimum greater rift in the course of the season.
Diablo 3 can be competitive but there needs to be some extent of delineation where prestige can be rewarded.
At quite similar time, By the way I feel that enforcing a competitive aspect to a game also generates some toxicity.
It’s pretty fun for the first couple of weeks and that to me is a lot more important than an artificial ranking that falsely imprints in my brain the notion of being famous, when you remove that competitive aspect and just look at a game like Diablo 3. Certainly, there’s a general love as humans to compete against each other. Way a lot of individuals have treated the situation with their language and behavior towards Blizzard and maybe some individuals is pretty heinous.
