Diablo® III

RIP Protatoe's barb

You were SO close to paragon 100.

HC just lost a huge character.

Rest in peace!

I guess we're all doomed and DC death will get us all.

Maybe that's what the Mayans were predicting, massive DC death in December 2012.

I think it happened yesterday and I think he had enough experience to know this.

Tis a sad sad day. 2 billion gold gear plus paragon 98 down the drain and not only that but the worst way to go too. RIP

lol did you he after the maint? if so LOL at him for thinking the servers are fine after a maint.

everyone knows when servers come up after a maint. that the servers are crap


He died last night, moron. And his cheapest item was worth 10 times all of your gear put together. Go back to the SC kiddie pool for a while.

OMG that's so horrible! :( I've been following his progress closely since he was around 75, and I saw him playing the Monk last night, but it never occurred to me that his Barb had died. I figured that maybe he just needed a break or something.

Jeeze, Protatoe, if you read this, I'm so sorry to hear about your lost hero! Please share a little bit with us about what happened. There were lots of people watching your progress to 100, and who will probably feel bad that your hero has fallen. Did you make it to level 99?

Even as Protatoe's Barbarian takes his place among whatever passes for the Halls of Valhalla in Sanctuary, we are all starkly reminded that no matter how well-geared our characters are, or how well we play them, death is just one DC or other unforeseen event away.

But to get sooooooooooooooooo close to Paragon-100 and miss it like this... ARRRGGGGGH, how frustrating that must be for him!

RIP Protatoe. Your deeds of valor will be remembered.... by many!

His landlord resetted his router or something like that. Sometimes it's avoidable, but yes, everyone is subject to DC deaths.

It was a hell of a run. He took alot of enemies down with him. . .more than his share I'd say.

Much, Much, MUCH Glory to the fallen.

I can only hope to accomplish half of what this great character did.

Here's what was posted over at jsp, reposted from a thread where Protatoe posted elsewhere about this death:

I was about 2 minutes from hitting level 99. Oh well, was bound to happen eventually. I was anxious to hit level 100 and was using really aggressive build that wasn't safe vs. DC's. Waypointed to the bridge and everything stopped moving with a screen full of spear chuckers.. knew I was a goner. Was a good run for Protatoe.. he was made soon after launch.

The topic of the thread is "Some Guy Almost Made It To Paragon 100 - And Then His Landlord Pulled Out Router" so there must have been more in the original post, but I can't find any other threads.

The image is stark and sad....

RIP. Must've felt horrible. Haven't lost a HC character in D3 yet, but I remember back in my D2 classic days, before the LOD expansion, getting to lvl 99 was basically impossible and chaos sanc was impossible for melee because of IM. Lost my lvl 90 there because of DC.

He exchanged DC protection for faster leveling. At least he's still having fun.
