Not looking good folks. For awhile now Blizzard has been preaching how we will be playing in a secure environment on battle.net and this is alarming. They need to fix this asap...

    Jump to conclusions much?

    It's beta, the entire point of the process is for them to patch holes like this prior to launch. If anything, the fact that someone has done this now only BENEFITS the game in the long run, because it WILL be fixed ahead of time.

    Logic and common sense are amazing tools.

    You obviously do not understand terms like "Beta".    No "Beta" does not mean "I get to play early and before everyone else so I can get ahead of them... Lucky me".     "Beta"  Means that you are in a testing environment to help patch up any flaws that might be found before a national release.   Debugging, bug hunting, glitching, hacking and all the sorts are methods used to ensure that the program being made is exactly as it is advertised.    

     

    On a second note, speed hacking and the likes are definitely not new to the game world.   Stop being a troll or go do some simple freakin research if you truly are dumb enough to believe things like speed hacking is a threat.  No one wants to hear sheer idiocy.

     

    Thanks and have a great day.

    Oh wow this beta ? Like I already did not know.. The simple fact is that the environment is not secure yet and speed hacking is not a common practice from beta testers. Clueless much ?

    Speed hacking has nothing to do with a secure environment.   It has something to do with altering game files, latency and various other methods.  In no way is it gaining illegal access to the game server and it's database files.    Secondly, speed hacking is one of the most common practices in online gaming period.   I think you are the one clueless...

    Only issue is that blizzard boasted that their online only play was to prevent things as this from happening and for it to be so soon is a little disheartening.

    I don't think this means too much seeing that D3 is still in beta, but it does make me laugh that Blizzard's online-only security precautions have already been beaten like a rented mule.  I can only hope that the lame rationales they've been using to justify the other garbage decisions they've been making fall just as flat come release time.  Sadly, I think they're far too on-the-ball for that, but hope springs eternal.

  • xS0u1zxxS0u1zx Member Posts: 209

    Yes I agree it's not the greatest that it's been exploited.   However, you and everyone else knows that now the issue has been found.  It will be immediately fixed by Blizzard, they aren't exactly dumb to this kind of stuff.  It used to happen in Vanilla wow all the time back in the day until they patched it.

    Wait... bugs found during a bug test? Unpossible!

    the speed hack in vanilla ran rampant for well over a year.. not exactly the best example of blizzards ability to tackle hacking.

    Oh I know it isn't.  But they weren't the most experienced at the time either.    I am quite confident they have learned from that, although it is seemingly difficult to fix speed hacks without radically altering a game itself.     Many are done through the memory (ram) of a computer and isn't exactly the easiest method to fix.     There was also a time you could seed items into wow itself and use hack programs and bots without much worry.     I'm actually hoping that during the beta more horrible stuff happens in D3 so they can fix it before it becomes an actual problem after release.

    I have no idea about the speed hacking, but there has been a working Torrent for the last week of Diablo 3 beta complete with a way to set up your own online server... Lets just say that a little birdie told me that this torrent works, the game sucks and It couldnt have happened to a "nicer" company.

    Enjoy the online cash auctions since that is the focul point of the game and what the game was written around.

    Enjoy cease and desist letters from blizzard.. torrents are easy to track. Do it enough and you'll find yourself on a hefty fine.

    First of all i would never support battle.net because when all of this type gaming started ,heat.net was offering a BETTER service,with rewards and serviced tons of different games.Battle.net is Blizzard ONLY,so they are selfish and even  when a company tried to help them by improving the app,they turned them down,so ya i wouldn't support selfish people.

    As to the how ,only a user of this setup would know ,does battle.net check for client machine speed?It has been a well known speed bump in any game for a very long time,no need for hacking.Even first person shooters that were bigtime against hacking took way too long before they started checking clients machine speed.

    I also believe VERY little in hacking ,i would lean more towards inside people giving out information or perhaps inside people are the ones at fault here.If it is strictly a case of allowing too much to be done client side,then Blizzard is either really dumb or doesn't care what goes on as long as they are not losing money out of their pockets.I would lean more towards them not caring,i have yet to see our games really take a solid stance against cheating,they always leave it up to us to report it first,they take no preventitive action.

    Now this is a prime example of clueless.

     

    Do you know WHY they are going to have a "online cash auctionhouse"... Letäs put it this way... Diablo was one of the games that showed that cash shops could work and that people was willing to pay for pixels... And this was all run by the players... with scamming (both real and of in-game items) running amuck.

     

    So the logical thing to do is to secure the trading and protect ones customers... Simple is it not.

     

    As to if the game is good or not, well every one have an opinion.

    Most messengers *wish* they were shot on site. Instead, they are generally flayed, tarred, feathered, liberated from their fingernails, befor being drawn and quartered. Then shot. A lot.

    This forum is filled with example of people who have high expectations, have them dashed, live in denial, and finally lash out at pretty much anyone with the "its still in beta, dammit!" excuse.

    THIS is an example of clueless....

    The online AH IS the focal point of the game. This is not to help protect the consumer but rather to TAX the consumer and make more money on taxed items than on box sales...This isnt to protect you folks.

    EQ2 did something similar on certain servers (allowing players to sell Gold and items legally through SOE- Of coarse SOE gt a fee per transaction)- Unfortuanatly th Gold sellers bypassed the official route and cut out the middleman. To this day it is far cheaper to buy Gold from the Gold sellers directly than on the "secure" marketplace.

    No game is hack proof, there is always someone out there with the knowledge to bypass security, it's just a matter of how fast they can fix it.  You should see the capability of the bots they have/had in Diablo 2 last time I played it, I mean they could pretty much do anything, play the whole game for you 24/7 with stashing and selling, hitting every part of every map, killing every single super unique boss, etc.  It went on for a loonnnnng time without banning certain hack programs, wouldn't doubt if today they are still working.  Granted D3 will be on the new Battle.net so it should be a "little" more secure but there's always going to be someone out there who figures out how to cheat the system.

  • NaralNaral Member UncommonPosts: 748

    While no game is hack proof, and I can accept those risks, what I do worry about is the horrid level of account security via battle net.  Pre battle net, my WoW account was never hacked, not once. Post battle net, at least twice int he first year. I quit WoW so I am not sure if it has been hacked since. 

    I could honestly care less if the game itself is hacked, because I will mostly play D3 as a solo/play with RL friends game. No real concern about economy or pvp etc.

    And ye they will probably fix this tiny little bug before dawn, i mean they actually have 546746546351 employee after all working on a BETA. I mean in all the games speed hacks always were fixed in Beta afterall, why D3 would be the exception? Cluless people pfff.

    Funny video - feels a bit like Benny Hill...

    And for those who think "tis OK coz Blizzard saw it!":


    • Blizzard still have to understand how the person did hack (provided the person did not report the method, which I hope he/she did),

    • Even if this specific speed hack was prevented, that would probably not prevent people from finding other ways to hack the game anyway.

    I find this disturbing if this is happening on a Blizzard official server... Even though I guess BNet is just - all in all - an extra layer of protection.
