I really don't understand why this, the issue of lag in hardcore, is still such an active topic. It is no longer the year 2000 and (though I am sure a few still are) you aren't stuck on a dial-up that also serves as the only phone line for your house, leading to the very real possibility of both lag and disconnects. It's 2012, and as much as folks loooooooooove to knock on their providers for their horrible connections and frequent disconnects, I think it's all a bit overstated and certainly nothing like it was back in the heyday of D2.
But absolutely, if that is something that would get under your skin, then perhaps HC is not right for you. I can all but assure that the majority of you who worry about stuff like this will end up with far more characters dead to other reasons that are seemingly out of your control than you do to lag and disconnects.
Just out of curiosity, have they said anything about what those conditions might be?
I was more under the impression that there would be no reason under the sun to get a rez on a dead HC. Doing that for any reason would pretty much mean that they would have to start looking at everything case-by-case.
Hacker got your account and murdered all of your characters? Should have had an authenticator.
Forgot to pay the power bill and died during the resulting cut-off? That's just unfortunate.
Cat clicked on your town portal while you were scooping it's litter box? Should have owned a dog.
Ronald Regan rose from the dead to hand deliver you a box of Swedish chocolate? Zombies aren't real(ly scary unless they can run fast.)
