Agree. Played D2 Hardcore for years. The change doesn't make sense and I understand the longterm implications.
A 10 second channel on Save & Exit. A cooldown on potions. A 10 second channel on TP's. Combine these facts, plus an even harder level of difficulty, and Hardcore is already going to be very difficult compared to D2.
Any lag or power out can kill you in HC (which has always been an issue), and now the gameplay dangers have increases without any quick escape options. I like the idea of having a IRL friend be able to get me my gear if my cable provider decides to have a bad day.
