    The last few months saw a steady increase in Hardcore players at the top of the chart, with 15 of the top 20 playing mostly or all Hardcore in June. That trend reversed this time around, with just 9 of the top 20 Hardcore. My favorite is MrPhats in 8th place, who somehow killed just 2 softcore monsters this month. How is that even possible? How does one kill just 2 of anything in Diablo 3, where the enemies come in groups of a dozen?

    Also, since people keep asking, the kill score takes several factors into account, including player deaths. That’s why some HC players rank higher despite having fewer total kills. That seems fair to me since softcore players can go much higher DPS without worrying about EHP, since death comes with no real penalties in softocre Diablo 3.
