Diablo® III

Please shorten the disconnect timer BLIZZ

No reason for it to be 10 seconds especially in HC this is an easy fix....you have a patch coming out....take 2 minutes and change the line of code from 10seconds to 5 seconds. It doesn't completely fix the problem but it'll def lower the chance of being DC killed in HC.

They have no choice, people would exploit it to avoid death.

It makes save and exit seem like easy mode.

I don't care about the people who would exploit it...if your near death you arent gonna pause the game and go....okay I'm near death...lets give that mob a free 5 seconds.

Nope but you can use a skill like Serenity and then alt+f4.

The timer has to be longer than defensive abilities.

People who want to ruin the mode for themselves let them, the accidental deaths from disconnects outweigh my concern for them as it should everyone. How about make it if you CHOOSE to leave or ALT+F4 then the timer goes back to 10 seconds...I'm sure the game can register such a simple task.

Cancel buffs like serenity when you save and exit, and put the timer to 3-5 seconds.

10 seconds is enough to kill even really well geared players, its not cool.

Everyone opposing the idea to op barely plays HC. Maskoaa has a decently high paragon HC character, so has a lot more to lose.

The idea of dying to a DC in Diablo 3 is what ruins the HC experience, the fact in can happen, and whats worse, the fact its the scariest thing about playing HC. HC should be like dark souls, where death can happen because of something you did wrong, or a really strong foe you were over confident about (how I lost my level 55 monk).

Instead, the only thing hard about Diablo 3 is there unreliable servers. People stack vit and AR in HC not because the monsters hit hard, but so you can stand a chance of surviving for 10 seconds.

+1 never lost a hardcore character that wasn't to a disconnect, please stop this bs from happening and just increase the difficulty of the game.
