Diablo 3: Blizzard Introduces Game Creation Limits
Diablo 3 will limit the number of games players can create in a set amount of time to improve stability.

Blizzard has introduced a new measure to help reduce Diablo 3 server strain - and frustrate gold/item farmers in the process.
Players will now be limited to creating an undisclosed number of games within a certain period - once you hit the cap, you'll have to "wait approximately 10 to 15 minutes before creating any additional games."
At the time of writing, the limit has been switched off after reports of problems from some players.
"Working properly you really shouldn't see it, even in fairly normal 'farming' conditions, or reasonable amounts of character swapping. We're shutting off the limitations off until we can take a better look at it tomorrow," adds Blizzard.
