Mmmmmmm I disagree…back in S13 I had the goal to stream every single session and try and top the HC Monk leaderboards whilst only playing SOLO.
I played solid for two and a half months, every session on YouTube and with two weeks left, at paragon 1,916 and 3rd in the Leaderboard I bit the dust…by playing drunk.
That hurt hard, I had backup gear and gems but I lost the heart to play the remaining two weeks.
I finished 3rd…sometimes when you invest so much and lose your main no backup character with backup gear can suffice.
I lost 3 wicked Primal’s that were all found on stream.
In fact, I’m still gutted to this day, the death is still on my YouTube channel and my reaction is of utter sadness.
But that is why I love HC so much. It makes you care about life and death in the game…and your toon.
