Diablo® III

The last 3 seconds of my HC Barbs life

I started to get hit by invisible mob's, and saw my latency spike from 200 to 2000.

I tried to TP out, that didn't work, I tried to drink a pot, that didn't work, so I tried to run out of the dungeon and I was greeted by this little road block. I couldn't do a single thing to stop myself from dying. GG Bliz

Admittedly this was only Nightmare and I was only level 39, so I don't care as much, but now I'm thinking there isn't any point in playing Hardcore as this will just happen again and again.

For the record I'm with iiNet, and my game is normally quite stable between 150-300ms, obviously playing on weekends is a bad idea :(

That sucks man I was just about to post a new thread about the LAG atm also. I have just decided to start a HC character today and this is the first time I have experience such bad lag spike and this has been happening for the last 1 hour spikes upto 1.5k and above.

This LAG in Aus/NZ needs to re fix and we get some aussie servers I don't have the option to play HC now because I will be to afraid of the same thing happening to me as the OP. BL Synthetic that's !@#$ed

You shouldn't be apologizing, Blizzard should be. I would like to see a blue post in here apologizing for things like this happening.

Wow, this seems to cause a lot of deaths for HC people. It's the reason, among many others, why I can't really be bothered making a HC character.

Thanks for the kind words guys.

I think I'll steer clear of Hardcore from now on which is a bit of a shame, I never even got close to dying to mobs while I was playing with decent latency.

I suppose that's one game mode Oceanic players will never get to use.

I always join the HC channel in game when I see these lag spikes, they tell me to gtfo.

Thats why this is bit stupid to connect to US server while you're playing in a single player.

D2 all the way.

Same to you man, I put my heart and soul into that character and even got tissue boxes ready for when I truly died like a man...

Well I decided to keep playing today got up-to level 22 then almost died twice due to lag spikes and was unable to move or use a tp like the OP. I was lucky to be in no danger expect for some gas spewers which were dead after the spike ended. This has made me quit and maybe stick with my normal mode characters!.

This is unplayable and I would really like to opportunity to play all the game modes the game I paid for has to offer. You have already made it clear we cant even play normal mode the way we want to in previously posts indicating you would like us to play the way game you designed was intended to be played?!. You have nerfed abilities without prior notice to consumers because you made mistakes on calculations and we used it to defeat the game?

I was thinking of a example of this and this came to mind 'If I buy a Mars Bar from the store I expect to be able to eat it the way I like. I dont expect to be given rules like maybe eating it with a knife and fork or how I must take the wrapper off! and even when I get to eat it the caramel would be nerfed into a stew berry flavour anyway because they got the ingredients wrong.

Please give us better server bandwidth of aussie servers and ffs stop changing the game rules before patch/hotfix release notes and details! this sucks am going to bed

Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'm one of the lucky ones, maybe it helps that I live next to my local exchange.

Yeah HC mode is not a feature designed for use down-under.

Every night for the last week, from about 8:30 pm Melbourne time, I have not been able play D3, because it will either not load, or, when it does load, there is a lag of up to 1 minute for any actions to occur. I have one question WHY?????
Is this a local thing, and it is not my internet speed. That is working fine.
Does anybody have any idea how to resolve this?
