Diablo® III

Blue answer please.

I talked to a game master, and he sent me here since he could not help me.
This is some things i wrote to him.

Never thought i would be one of theese ppl , but wtf...
So i was playing in a party and was doing some act 3 champs when i saw at the text area " You ware removed from the game".
So i thought (hmm wtf, a dc or something.Fine ill get out to the meny and just log in again)
But i dident get log out, all i saw was my hp getting low and lower , then when i was at around 20% left it started saying it was loggin out counting down from 10...
Needless to say the champs downed me in the next 2 secs...


Could you tell me wtf happened there? is that a bugg or is that supposed to happen ?
If so that's a REALLY stupid mechanic in hc.
Its like a 100 % death...

When you log out in the field, there's a 10 second countdown before you are removed from the game. This is to prevent people from chickening out and just quitting or intentionally pulling the plug on their internet in order to prevent their characters from dying. Without that mechanic, there's pretty close to 0% chance of any hardcore character ever dying.

If you get disconnected, it can take some time for the client and the server to each, independently, determine that you've been disconnected. The countdown timer doesn't start until it decides that you've been disconnected.
