I like that you have to think about what you are doing in HC otherwise you may very well die. I like that certain monsters are scarier than others and you need to adjust builds to survive. The fallen maniacs seem to disregard whatever strategy you take and still manage to kill you with ease. I build as much armor, vitality and resists as possible, and have died 2 times out of two to fallen maniacs, and didn't even see the bas****s! ,
That's really the biggest problem - they aren't easily visible. I'm also color blind, so that makes it even tougher. If they are with a massive swarm of monsters, they are barely visible, and i truly mean that. There suicide bomb is meant to be powerful, but for how strong it is, the maniacs should be WAY more visible at the very least! It really does ruin the experience of HC to die in that way; to a fallen maniac who was able to camouflage himself in a horde of monsters.
EDIT: I want to emphasize the fact I don't have uber items and I'm low level.
EDIT: (Someone else posted this but it's a really good point) There are also lags, rubber banding and many other issues ... which just feels frustrating and not like a challange.
EDIT: I am okay with the damage of maniacs... in fact, make them stronger for all i care.. they should be MORE VISIBLE... MORE VISIBLE... MORE VISIBLE.... Do people read OP before they repost?
