    Sounds fishy to me. Not saying he's lying, just saying it sounds fishy. If it is true, there goes all hope for b-net.

    Yes, it works.

    No, I won't be telling anyone how it's done. But be VERY careful around the towns and towns edge.

    Yep, that was a little info I left out as a Pally got the kill credit. i personally assumed it may be that Rouge bug again so we tried it and we couldnt get it to work let alone go that far.

    The one that REALLY puzzles me is how the arrows get past the walls to the stash?

    Stinger was NOT talking about the town edge thing, which I thought they (b-net) fixed. He's talking about a vey old hack that was reported him has made an ugly return (possibly) where you could get killed ANYWHERE in town. If you look he said at the STASH. If true, this is very disturbing!

    Town kill was the reason I uninstalled Diablo I. I encourage anyone who falls to this to take a screenie and email Blizzard. Town kill is totally inexcusable.

    Did they fix it? It was working as of last week. I was watching it happen on West. I can only hope there isn't another hack that will allow town kills anywhere in town.

    I also heard a report about someone suffering a townkill.


    We later discerned that he probably wasn't looted, but the pk is basically undisputed.

    it is not a joke.
    i was in a classic game and one guy was there telling the rest of the game how he was killed in town the same way. and then 3-4 others said that they also heard about it too.

    so im under the opinio9n that it is indeed true though i hope for the best...

    Well the town edge thing works. Never knew about it, but my level 9 druid mule was looking at a dueling game and i got killed inside the walls. Lost tancreds ammy and a mosers I was gonna mule for for my necro.

    Didn't know it could happen. Dumb hacks hurt the honest people. As little as I play its gonna take me a while to find those again.

    At least I didn't lose more and it was only a level 9 mule.

    And it was a pally and a rogue merc.

    Only time I have ever been PK'd too :scratch:

    A necro killed my pally while still in town, I have the screenshot to prove it. So I think there is some form of a town kill going on

    I don't spend time in Act1 for this reason. I believe you have to be by the opening or at least by a straight arc of the opening for the arrows to fly.

    WTF is this about!!!

    I was about to post about this myself when i saw Stinger's post. I entered a game called A2 HAVE STAFF or something close to it. I join the game in act1, and as I'm going about my biz selling stuff to Gheed, etc, I DIE! WTF??? No loot (just joined), no chance to even exit- though why I would exit WHILE IN TOWN is beyond me. Lost some nice chancies, occy, and some decent MFSCs. Dammit. THIS IS &*&#^$%*&$*&!

    There goes playing MP games at all on bnet. Oh well, it was time to quit this stupid thing anyway.

    Town kill is unfortunately a bug, not a hack. You cant avoid it. I know all about it, as i have Tested it, been struck by it and been taught to how to do it. If any one would like further information on town kill bug you can pm me. i will only explain to the trusted. as town kill bug is really a killer and easy to learn.

    This is possible. maby it have been fixed i cant say. i dont know how they do this. but i know some people have died to it right in middle of town. you need a pally with really high conc and merc arrow. i konw you need a pally with high conc and enchant the merc and there is something to do with a tp. so be really carefull. do not show your stuff to someone when being hostiled. and if u are hostiled in trade screen exit right away
