    Maybe. But on HC at least, if you dont play that way - as you unfortunately discovered - you'll have an even worse one

    It''s a ladder competition, there are only so many rungs at the top, so you should also be on the lookout for opportunities to friendly bump other people off of it.

    That sucks.

    However, I wish I could say I was surprised. In every game I've ever played that had any way to kill other players, whether by design or 'sploit/hack, there are people who get their jollies doing just that. Hardcore servers in Diablo II were thick with em.

    Trolls just want to have their fun. Sadism is a thing these days.

    I think lack of quest knowledge is more likely. I am not going for leader board position and long ago decided I wouldn’t run quests where I can get oneshotted including siege breaker
    i find there are many quests I often skip and I am much more likely to die in those on hardcore since I don’t know as well.

    Definitely. I always say, "Competition brings out the worst in people." There is nothing wrong with trying to beat your own record (i.e. a form of self-competition, if you will), but when people start comparing themselves to others, bad things happen. The less ways there are to compete, the better. The kill counter in the experience report is something else I would prefer didn't exist (along with any kind of leaderboard).

    OP was competing as the highest level player online not in a certain guild for space on the leader board against his group members, who are members of a certain guild.

    That's a far cry from playing and having fun in hardcore casually at level 8.

    Maybe it was entirely an accident!

    i can't speak about OP or others in ths post but for me i have had quite a few close calls when i have been greased, and i fell into bad situation that i cheesed an escape out of the quest. i have also been healed in common area and ship and been hit by a heal/slow movement (shiradi bug).

    but on the other side of the coin i have almost killed a few people when i was blowing up barrels using runearm to clear the area for safety concerns in a few quests. i did quickly heal them but i do wonder if they think i did it on purpose. which i did not.

    It definitely sounds like people are already using this on purpose on the hardcore server to try and kill people. I hope the developers are making fixing it a top priority.
