100% agree with Garmuck on this one. Blizzard should use a portion of the money coming in from HC to either update HC server stability, or hire a team of GMs that will review deaths and revive characters killed by server DCs.
You are the kind of person J Allen Brack was referring to when he said “You think you want it but you don’t”.
It’s a game you’re spending 100s of hours on with a permanent death.
If you had a legit run to 50 and died to a DC of all things which is not in your control, it would hurt a lot despite how much you try to brush it off because it happened it a way you couldn’t prevent.
That’s why death appeal is a thing.
This particular version of the game has a special ruleset. Death means that character’s run is over on the server. While I do realize that some players might be playing on a hardcore server to get a “fresh” experience, they need to understand the added consequence of playing on the server. That big ole box that pops up before you can create/log in with your character warns you.
Asking for appeals is like being upset that pvp happened on a pvp server. Special ruleset.
I don’t really see it as masochistic. I don’t have a big enough group to raid, so level 60 is when I ‘Beat’ Hardcore wow.
It’s legit the only way one can beat this video game.
But death won’t be the end, at least not for me →
Dying on a HC means I failed the specific rule set of this server. I’ll still get to play classic with my toon. So, that’s exciting.
So DC is failing the specific rule set of the server?
When will I learn to check who started the thread instead of just reading it?
Son, it doesn’t matter how you died but if you went out with style.
I wouldn’t call a DC style.
How does this address the unfairness of DC deaths?
You go agane!
Most won’t go “agane” if there’s no appeals.
Im telling you right now im done with HC. I really don’t have it in me to go again after losing a toon to a DC. I’m am grateful I learned this lesson early.
I have many other hobbies that don’t punish me for participating.
It’s a challenge.
It apparently isn’t one for you and that’s okay.
Enjoy your other pursuits.
For sure, this one really wasn’t for me.
Keep it up Garmuck.
You’re doing great sweaty!
I think people are underestimating the amount of DC deaths people are having.
You gotta realize most people won’t come back after something like that. The sting is worse with a higher level too.
This happen to my brother and I last night. We DC in duskwood killing skeletons. And he lost his 26 rogue and I got lucky. But thats it hes done, not doing it again to that. Losing a HC Character to a DC is low and not your fault.
Honestly advocating that it’s part of the game to lose a HC to DC is so counterproductive and if anything feeds a greater problem.
