In the game Diablo 3 week it appears that Blizzard Entertainment is implementing (or the public is just realizing the existence of) a "Starter Edition" rule which has users new to the game locked down in several areas for 72 hours after they first start up the game.

Users are able to access each of these, and more, once they've had their account for a total of three days (real time, not in-game time, thankfully).

This week Blizzard will be bringing "thousands" of Diablo III hackers, botters, and cheaters to the banning chambers as they ramp up their efforts to keep the game a completely clean, safe, and enjoyable environment for all players.
