Diablo 3 Hardcore Warning: Tristram Is Deadly AgainPosted 11 Jun 2013 by
An urgent Diablo 3 Hardcore Warning. You can die in Tristram the instant you join the game.
Prior to Patch 1.03 fixing the problem by putting a portal barrier over the bridge to the Weeping Hollow, players were able to lead monsters across the bridge into Tristram. This was very funny when it was an accident, as players newly into Inferno practiced the “run around screaming” tactic so common in those early “gear check” days. Sometimes players ran for the safety of town, except it wasn’t safety, and jokes about, “the chased me all the way back to Diablo 2″ were funny… except that in D2 town was a safe zone.
It was also pretty funny when players “built a zoo” in Tristram, leading numerous monsters right into the center of town, where they destroyed anyone who joined the game before their loading screen ended.
It was a lot less funny when people did this in Hardcore; at least to the victims. The problem was fixed in v1.03 though, at least on that end of town. There are two sides to Tristram though, and though the monsters out the southern gate aren’t as fierce, if some patient asshole spends the time to herd a bunch of them into the center of town, on a high MP level, it’s still pretty much instant death for a new player joining the game. Which is easy to do if you accept an invite to join the game from someone who sees you in chat.
I know you’re concerned with ensuring this kind of situation doesn’t happen again (to you or to other players), so I want to let you know that we’re passing along the feedback from this thread to the appropriate people who can evaluate it and decide what to do. Along those lines, it’s also helpful to report this kind of behavior whenever you see it using the right click > Report option, so that our Customer Support staff can investigate the situation itself and anyone involved. Unless we receive a report, we can’t really look into the issue and/or see if there’s any way that we can assist.
Allegedly the main guy doing this over the weekend on the EU server was permabanned, but you can be sure others will duplicate the trick, so you may want to avoid accepting invites to join games from people you don’t trust, and be cautious joining any game in Act One, until Bliz patches in a fix to this exploit.
