Diablo® III

My lag/DC solution idea

Over the past few weeks I have been seeing so many deaths related to lag and server issues etc

I myself haven't had any problems nor have I been D/C as long as I can remember. But its pretty bullsh*t when you see someone die cause of that. So I had an idea.

In my childhood memories I remember playing Starcraft online and when ever someone in the game was lagging there would be a popup thing that paused the game for everyone until the connection was established or else u had the option to drop the player if he/she exceeded a given timer

I've managed to find a picture on google:

Keyword: Starcraft Lag (images)

I think this tool would be a great addition to the game, thus it would solve all those lag deaths.

C'Mon Blizzard!!!

Or else we just keep playing as it is and hope the Lag Boss doesn't strike

That is a good idea. Especially because if the rest of the group goes to help said lagger, right now they have no idea they are lagging. This can kill a group. Great idea. hope this gets some attention.

Unfortunately even this would not stop the cryers from crying about something.

I have a solution too. Play a barb and push your ehp up to 1.5m before even considering mp lvls. Stack big regen, too. And pray that the power doesn't go out at the wrong time.

Haha yup, the forum complaints would change and would go something like this..... Lag pop up is wasting my time, Get rid of the Lag pop, Let them laggers die....
But yea I think your right, if they do have this implemented the noobs will just find something else to moan about.

Hahaha, I like your idea I think most barbs are pretty tanky and should be able to pull off a lag/dc.... what about the other classes? :P

We posted this in various threads since the game came out (or at least since late May when I made a thread on this). It was ignored here and in the technical support forums.
