lol did you he after the maint? if so LOL at him for thinking the servers are fine after a maint.
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.
Monk is his alt, it was already at 50.

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!
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.
