HC Deaths due to server failure

It's very simple,do not play hardcore. Blizzard cannot be relied on for their servers let alone their game. Avoid the aggravation, do not do it.


150% agree here. I can barely play by myself anymore for the lag much less a 4 man party on HC. The servers have SuCkEd since last patch or 2.

I watched your video and that is some crap. If all of you were experiencing that, then something is wrong on their side.

The issue with the servers is blizzard is getting ready and preparing for release of D3 on console so they are allocating part of the PC servers to help with that. Blizzard is the cheapest POS company for stuff like this when they are one of the top grossing gaming companies in the world. Its rather pathetic. Blizzard is where its at because of US CLIENTS, yet they don't treat their clientele with the decency and respect that a company of blizzards stature should. Blizzard has become all about the money and not about rewarding their loyal playerbase. Just like in WoW, they reward new members with great benefits while giving people who have had subscriptions for years the shaft. Maybe one day someone high up and blizzard will open their eyes and see the picture.

I'm another victim of Blizzard's poor quality in both servers & support.
Sending them tracerts & pathpings is just a waste of time & effort. They will blame everyone else except themselves.

I've lost HCs to Blizzard death too. There's no mention on the HC agreement that Blizzard will kill your HC toon is there?
The 3 deaths on the video: they were not in control to be able to portal back to town. You need to watch them more closely. They had almost no control.

Blizzard CAN roll back characters. Its technically easy & they have done it before. Blizzard invented penalties for intentional DC (Starcraft 1) but it wasn't intended to penalize players for Blizzard server caused kills. That's not part of HC gameplay.

The easy & only solution is to avoid Blizzard & their general disregard for players.
I wont be spending any more money on Blizzard.

not sure why its the players fault if theyre hardcore toon died because of a FAILURE on blizzards end. i just once again lost a hc toon myself just a few minutes a go when the updated the breaking news to say the server would be going down. so im quick sick of the fact that i keep having both sc and hc toons die because blizzard cant keep their servers properly maintained. i also believe that anyone who does have their toon killed in hc because of blizzards FAILURE should get their toon back.

PandaCheese from this video just lost his para 100 top 5 CM WIZ due to a critical error. He went into festering woods and hit storm armor and his game instantly crashed and his character died before the mobs could be killed. Earlier in the day a wizard buddy was in town and went to put storm armor on and it crashed him. So looks like storm armor must be "working as intended" by blizzard.

i had heard something about this recently. the posts i seen suggested that the sound associated with the wizard armor is causing problems.

tbh, its quite possible. the FMOD system they are using is both out of date and bugged.

Big bummer when this stuff happens. Just happened to my buddy. Screen froze up and I could see his character reads "dead" in his profile. He hasn't even been able to log off. Just one of those things you know is a risk in HC.

suck it up, haha, we died with more value in gems then your characters are worth combined. You don't understand what it means to actually lose a REAL character yet.

They won't change it, because then they would have to review every hardcore death to see if it was lag, or a bad player.
