Can We Use This Latency Fix?(1)Category: Technical SupportFebruary-12-2015 10:26 AM PST (5 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
Hi,

Are we allowed to use the fix mentioned in this thread?
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/5578595314

Intended to try a VPN service, but I've read that it may trigger our accounts getting locked/banned.
So wondering if we're allowed to try the fix above instead?

AnkleBreaker,

None of that will cause any issues with your account, nor would using a VPN service really. The only drawback to using one is that due to the nature of how they work, you may have your account temporarily locked as the servers would see connections coming from different geographical locations, not normally used with your account. As we see this as a potential compromise, the account is prevented from logging in temporarily until the instructions in the email you would be sent are followed. It's pretty much just an inconvenience. Nothing bad happens to your account.
