Blizzard is to re-enable the limit on how many Diablo III games a player can create within a certain amount of time in an effort to cut down on bot use, according to an official forum post.

"We've further tuned and tested the conditions that trigger this limit to ensure, as much as possible, that it only affects those abusing the Diablo III game service in a way that violates the Terms of Use – for example, by using bots that create games in rapid succession," explained Blizzard.

The forum post continued: "The use of bots not only impacts the stability of the game service, but it also has an impact on the player-driven economy. While we regularly take action against accounts for the use of unauthorized third-party programs and bots, this additional measure will help us further preserve and protect the integrity of the game and economy in between ban waves."

Blizzard says it will be looking for player feedback once the change goes live in order to ensure the limit is working as intended.

"We'll continue to tweak the game limit as necessary, as well as continue to go after the few cheaters and botters that are out there in other ways," added Blizzard. "Our goal is to help ensure that Diablo III continues to be a fun gaming environment for all of our players, and we're looking forward to hearing your feedback on this change once it goes live."

Expect further details on the Battle.net forums.
