Confusion over Diablo 3 crack claims

There seems to be some confusion over the recent Diablo 3 crack in China, because while two high-profiled sources in China would have you believe that the game has been cracked, it’s more of a server emulator. What this means to the user is that this workaround will confuse servers and think that the game is being played online, when in fact it was offline.

It’s easy to understand why these sources would confuse it with a crack, but we still have to be concerned that certain Chinese individuals are prepared to come up with ways in order to play the game, as it has become very hard for them to obtain the game in their country, so find other ways in order to play it. They can get international versions and then by implementing this so-called crack will allow them to play without the need to connect to Blizzard servers.

What Kotaku finds shocking is how the Chinese articles are promoting this illegal act, but are we really surprised? However, things are not all good for those who wish to go down this road because there’s not much you can do with Diablo 3. The reason for this is because all the good parts of the game live on Blizzard servers, so if you’re not connecting then you can’t load up the quests, weapons and armor.

There’s a fine line with the meaning of the word crack, but because what is being done here modifies how the game can get around certain security measures it can be thought of as a crack. The company responsible for this is Skidrow, a well known hacking group; don’t think for one moment that we will be pointing you to the torrent, as you obviously know it’s illegal.
