Diablo III Inadvertent PvP to be Fixed

There are threads in the Diablo III Forums about players exploiting the way vote kick mechanics work in Blizzard's action/RPG sequel to get other players killed, which is a particular problem in Hardcore, where character death is permanent. A post by Blizzard responds to this situation saying this unintended form of PvP griefiing will be addressed ASAP:

Ehhh. While the advice "don't play in Hardcore public games" may be valid in a number of situations, we recognize that this is a legitimate issue for Hardcore players and want to address it ASAP -- ideally in a way that doesn't impact co-op play (or impacts it as minimally as possible).

Right now, we're looking to remove the 10-second movement lockout whenever a Vote Kick is passed from both Hardcore and Normal modes. While we realize this solution may allow players to exploit the Vote Kick function to avoid death, it's not a very reliable survival technique and we feel that it's a better alternative than players losing a character they've invested a lot of time into due to griefing. We'll definitely be keeping on an eye on this, though, and will consider other solutions if necessary.

I don't know yet if this is something that can be addressed via hotfix; it may be a fix that we need to implement with a client-side patch. We're still working out the details, and I'll provide an update once there's any more info to share.

Still playing crew checking in, Its sad that people do this to kill others HC chars. :-(

I like d3, always have, i think lots of the moaning about it is over the top, especially from people who put in 50 or 60 hours in to the game and then complain its a trash game? That says more about them than the game. Its not the game we all wanted but that doesnt make it terrible.

The main difference between PoE and D3 will be that when someone plays PoE for 40 hours, and then decides they have had enough they wont go around telling the world that its the worst game ever.

(PS: PoE is *OK*, nothing specially, but it is ok; TL2 is better imo, and D3 whilst having simpler mechanics has MUCH better combat).

(you know, like the people that loved every moment of Me3 untill the last 5 mins and then decided a bad end made the rest of the game totally unenjoyable).
