Just started playing hardcore yesterday...never seen a forum so full of people with their heads shoved so far up their asses than here.
You PLAY diablo 3 in hardcore mode...That doesn't make you elite at all. You aren't cool, you aren't tough, you aren't better than anyone.
Get over yourself.
Of course playing in hardcore does not make me cool, tough, or better than anyone. I was already cool, tough, and better than everyone before Diablo 3.
