    Diablo III has had its fair share of problems right from launch, and things are getting no better. Players have apparently found a relatively simple exploit that allows them to become completely invulnerable.

    While this sort of thing would be bad news for any online game with at least a semblance of balance, the exploit is worsened by the game's economy. Diablo III's auction house is backed with real cash, and with indestructible wizards now on the prowl, the effects could be drastic.

    So yeah, it looks like the title (the "Diablo" part of it, anyway) has become more and more prescient. At this rate, the servers should be consumed by actual hellfire sometime next year.

    This is why what should be a single player game shouldn't be tied to a game economy that handles real cash.

    It's just...ugh.

    I seriously don't think any more issues can hit Diablo III at this time. Between the horrific DRM that everyone hates, the abused auction house, and now this, I think they've hit rock bottom.

    since its an "always online" game, maybe they can fix the exploit right away with an auto-update patch... before everyone gets the mighty lv.999999 wizard

    They shouldn't have at the real money auction house or the auction house in the first place. Now all it takes to advance in harder levels is buying better equipment off the AH

    As if other MMOs don't have exploits that are always being found and fixed?

    But yes this is more serious than normal, with the cash backing.

    I gave up on the game after a week, Had so much potential but They used the popularity of the game franchise to turn it into a cash cow.

    An online friend of mine has spent over £200 on equipment for his monk, Such a waste.

    Blizzard normally go hard on exploiters when it comes to wow, They normally remove all items they got when exploiting, including gold. They ban them for a bit, I wonder what they will do when it comes to Diablo.

    Almost as bad as the RuneScape glitch where that one guy was able to attack other players in non-pvp areas.

    You aren't missing much, I would rather buy torchlight 2 with it's steam workshop support and have unlimited replay value from the community. Diablo 3 has lack of content and bugs. The game has clearly been made to make you feel forced to use Real money auction house for Blizzard to rake in the cash. This is coming from someone who loves Blizzards games.

    You should check out "Path of exile" it's open beta weekend on the 27th.

    I made a monk from the beginning.....a class I have found out to be tied with the AH to get anywhere in Inferno.......

    That's how broken the game is.

    It looks like a lot of people really aren't happy with the game. Well, with the introduction of the auction house, you can certainly say Blizzard sold out.

    My original plan with the game's RMAH was to supply me with lunch every other day or so. Now, I can't even supply myself with lunch from it in a week's time.....

    It's such a broken game. Blizzard need to get their act together. Bring back the goodness that Diablo was, not make it into a huge cash opportunity.
