Blizzard Changes “Diablo III” Restrictions for New Users
03 Jul, 2012
Following the recent outcry of users concerning certain limits imposed on “unverified digital purchasers” of Diablo III, the developer has now made certain changes to these limits to allow users to progress further while their status is still unverified.
The restrictions, which were introduced in a recent patch and intended to combat credit card fraud, effectively limited users to the “Starter Edition” of the game, in which the character progression is severely limited, for up to 72 hours. According to MCV, Blizzard has now made changes to these restrictions and allows players access to the entire game, but restricts their abilities to interact with other players that have not accepted them as their friends. Players who remain unverified are also unable to use the auction house, or engage in any of the public chat channels.
