Hm, this got bumped.
Anyway, this sounds only beneficial to solo players.
How about this: When a player loses connection, a message appears to other players such as, "(insert player name) has lost connection" or "has disconnected". Then they gain immunity for say, 5 seconds, then after those 5 seconds they lose immunity, then the 10 second d/c countdown timer starts?
I like ideas that encourage group play, not solo play.
The main problem is that the disconnection detection often takes ages... In solo or multi. I lost barbs by DC that could easily stay alive 10 sec in the area where it happened... (and I'm not talking about DH or Sorc). I really think the 10s DC timer should be somehow reduced/changed too.
That's insane that you can't play solo to a solo game because of enigmatic client disconnections that took ages.

As soon the servers detect lag (mainly when ping turns yellow or red), the (single) game should auto-pause. (Btw, even the ping indicator lags, meaning that it still shows green although it is clearly not "good latency.) And maybe the game can also be auto-paused whenever there is a disconnection and be resumed manually at exactly the same point as soon as the connection is established again and the ping is green.
