A video has popped up on Youtube which apparently shows a Diablo 3 Beta speed hack in action. There has been a lot of debate about the legitimacy of the video and after a lot of scrutiny and watching the video over in key places it appears this could be legit. If you watch the video and look at the door animations and the attack speed it doesn’t look like video editing trickery. This of course raises the question of what should be handled client or server side. Anyway, watch the video and see what you think.
The good thing about this appearing now is that if this is legit, which we think this is, it shows Blizzard where there could be problems while we are in the testing process and not on a retail release. If there is a hole let’s hope it’s plugged quickly.
Thanks to the forum community and Noru381 for sending that down the news wire.
Update: A fan posted news of this on the Battle.net forums, and got a short blue reply:

Ironic advice, given the allegations in the recent D2 hacks news.
