A hotfix has gone into Diablo 3 to fix the problem we noted a couple of weeks ago, that monsters could be lured through the Eastern game to create a Tristram Town-Kill Exploit hitting players who were helpless while first joining a game.
Today a hotfix went live which makes it no longer possible for hostile monsters to enter New Tristram through its eastern gate (any monster that attempts to cross this threshold should now instantly die).
If you believe that certain players previously used this tactic against you in order to intentionally grief your character, please avoid calling them out by name on the forums and instead report them by submitting a ticket so that we can investigate their accounts and take the necessary actions.
Unfortunately, as stated in our Diablo III Restorations Policy, Customer Support cannot revive fallen hardcore heroes for any reason and hardcore heroes cannot be rolled back. As such, your hero's valorous deeds will simply have to be remembered, like so many other fallen Nephalem. [source]http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/9344415039?page=2#32[/source]

All during D3's development the designers made indirect comments about cool events like battles in town and how town wouldn't always be a safe place, as it was in previous Diablo titles. Players were intrigued, and I think it was an awesome idea. I loved the scavengers that charged you when you first left Tristram via the Weeping Hollow bridge, and most of us squeaked in surprise the first time those big demons appeared by the entrance to the Keep in Act 3.
As usual, players abusing features is why we can't have nice things.

Monsters instantly die? I hope they don\'t drop loot or give exp. Gogo MP10!!

Given the time required to lure simple zombies that far, I can\'t believe it\'s worth the exploit. There aren\'t any bosses found that side of Tristram before you enter the Cathedral, though you get at least one purple.
I hate to think how long it would take to steer that Vile Mother from Old Tristram all the way down the winding road, though Adria\'s Shack, etc, just to get the free kill.

As a recent fan of HC, I\'ve watched the youtube video posted by Boba-fat with a heartache. It\'s a 25 min clip of massacre.
Some of the chars that were ruined had such good gear that I only can hope the ones that lost them kept their sanity.
I for one have accepted that I\'m gonna lose my toons in HC. I play self-found and enjoy the ride to my death weather it\'s my own mistake, D/C or even PK. But man, it\'s good they fixed it. There seems to be a recent influx of people to HC (I noticed by browsing my friends list) and such exploits can get fresh players to quit HC and never look back..

For me HC is a gimmick, for this reason and others. I get the attraction of HC, but the game is just not good enough to warrant the dedication and the attention. In fact, neither was D2.

I just wish Blizzard would fix the preloading required when using skills and attacking monsters during the first couple of minutes upon entering the game so it doesn\'t skip the animation with a mini freeze.

Blizzard will never test the game with a conventional harddrive. However if you install the game on a 10 dollar flashdrive that problem goes away entirely.

Re: Tristram Town-Kill Exploit Hot-Fixed
It took some time to lure them. But once your lure is ready on MP10 you're good to go.
All kills in this video are made with one single lure in 1 game. All we had to do was recollect the mobs on the spawnpoint where people join and keep inviting people to the game.
It's good that it's finally fixed, because it was way too easy.
