Update 8/6/2012: Game limits have been re-enabled.
The use of bots not only impacts the stability of the game service, but it also has an impact on the player-driven economy. While we regularly take action against accounts for the use of unauthorized third-party programs and bots, this additional measure will help us further preserve and protect the integrity of the game and economy in between ban waves.
Once this change goes live, we're looking for your feedback to help ensure that the limit is working as intended. If you encounter the "Input limit reached" message and feel you should not have, please let us know how many games you were creating and why. This information will help us ensure the limit minimally impacts legitimate players while still protecting the game against bots.
We'll continue to tweak the game limit as necessary, as well as continue to go after the few cheaters and botters that are out there in other ways. Our goal is to help ensure that Diablo III continues to be a fun gaming environment for all of our players, and we're looking forward to hearing your feedback on this change once it goes live.
We will update this post and unlock the thread once game limits are re-enabled.
After a long wait character profiles are now available on the official website.
Yup, they’re ready.
All you need to do is log in with your Battle.net account (look for the login box in the upper-right hand corner of your screen) to access character profiles from any page on the Diablo III community site. Make sure that you've selected your Diablo III BattleTag in the login box, and, once you've selected your BattleTag, choose 'view profile'.
Profiles give you the power to:
We like that profiles provide for easy sharing, comparing, and refining of your heroes as you pursue monster-slaying mastery. In fact, we like profiles so much that we plan to add even more functionality to them as Diablo III evolves, including detailed statistics and tabs for achievements and artisans.
If there’s something else you’d like to see appear in a character profile, please make sure to let us know in the comments below or on our website forums.

D3RMT has many new features on the horizon focusing primarily on the community. Let's take a look at some of the new and upcoming features.
Today we updated profiles to provide a news feed system such as those found on many social networks. This feed currently displays your posts, threads, ratings, comments, sale history, auction house favorites, and auction house subscriptions. In the future, more items will be added to this feed which you will learn about in just a bit.
Profiles will be receiving a tab for screenshots and videos. You will be able to upload your screenshots and link to YouTube videos here, as well as view screenshots and videos on other user profiles. Screenshots and videos added will be featured on your profile feed.
Many actions throughout the website will award an achievement. Some achievements will grant you a reward such as in-game items, gold, or crafting. Achievements earned will be featured on your profile feed as well as an achievement tab on your profile.
The website will be gaining an entirely new section dedicated entirely to the community. Newly added screenshots and videos will be visible here where other users can up- or down-vote submissions, and the screenshot and video with the highest net votes for that day will be featured in a more prominent display. This is just one example of what you will be able to find in the community section.
We have begun working on a website that is optimized for mobile browsers.
We have added a new feature to user profiles: sale histories. Here you will be able to log all of your auction house sales, whether they were sold for gold or real-money, and view sales made by other members. In the future, we plan on using this information to display statistics such as recent sales, highest selling price for specific items, and more (you will be able to opt-out of this if you'd like.)
To use this feature, simply head over to your profile and click the Sale History tab on the left. Enjoy!
Hopefully this lessens the issues of rubberbanding by quite a bit that users have been experiencing for a while.
Below you'll find a list of hotfixes for the month of August which address various gameplay and service issues affecting Diablo III.
Hotfixes are updates we make on our end without requiring you to download a new patch. Some of the hotfixes below will go live the moment they are implemented, while others may require a restart to go into effect. As always, please keep in mind that some issues cannot be addressed without a client-side patch update.
