I was rushing up the ladder. Last time I checked, HypotheticalBus, my necromancer, was ranked 34th on the US East expansion necro ladder. I did a bunch of grinding after that and gained another ten levels, so I was probably up into the twenties. Apparently, my nightmare Baal runs to level were too fast, and I got locked out. Eight hours later, and I'm still locked out and I'm sure my rank has gone way down if I'm still on the ladder at all. These protects don't seem to do much to stop spammers and punish people who do fast runs or have to join a few games before they find what they are looking for. What's the point?
