What. The. Fuck.

Did Blizzard unleash some sort of crazy braincells eating virus upon the Bluesnews community? What the hell is going on here!?

Theo, didn't I freaking say the character was dead in the heroes list completely before my friend even entered the Diablo world? Not with those words, but I did freaking say it. Besides, whatever nin tries to throw out there, logging out in town is even RECOMMENDED because in this way your characte can't get raped when you believe you've logged out but the servers haven't properly "refreshed" your hero to that status yet.


I wasnt clear to me at all, you said "the game decided he was dead".

Point about checkpoints/loggin in town stands.

PS: for what its worth i agree it sucks and also i hate the fact that when you do login (regardless of your personal situation), you do start from a checkpoint and not town with waypoint persistance.

Its nearly killed me on my hardcore dude a number of times.

So, what? You expected me to say "Hi" and ask "How are you doing?" before I acknowledged your correct answer and requested a clarification? **shakes head in confusion**

Though don't worry Verno, you are hardly alone in your approach. The simple stating of facts and asking of questions seems to make many people think there is a lack of "friendliness" in communications.

Edit: Thanks for your expanded answer.

Its polite to say please now and again, so what are you on about? Verno even apologized to you and yet you keep up with your attitude. Mr. Tact? Hmm

As for hacks... Again, how -- for FUCK'S SAKE PEOPLE!? -- can you say, with conviction, that it's the customer's fault when his battlenet account's being hacked!? If you're a PC wiz, sure.. debateable, but there's hundreds -- no, thousands! -- of people who play games after working their asses off after a hard day at work but that's where their knowledge about software ends. Blame them? Get the hell out of here...!

And of course if this wasn't Diab-WoW, everybody would be ripping the game a new a-hole. It's really amazing how Blizzard is getting away with this...

And how exactly are they getting away with it? They have already commented on a number of issues Im pretty sure that they would rather have ignored simply because of the huge outcry on their official forums. They have stated that hotfixes and patches are on for a number of fixes and have even bowed to pressure about inferno and itemization? So how are they getting away with it?

Where's my coffee while you're at it mister roboto? Err no but I'm pretty sure if I answered one of your quotes with something like "Obviously, now have an answer to my question?" you wouldn't be very forthcoming either. Your nickname must be an ironic thing eh?

It just seemed unnecessarily snippy but if I misinterpreted you then I apologize. I wasn't trying to answer your question in the first place, I was just saying that its a shitty thing to happen to people on Hardcore.

I can think of several different checkpoints that are very close to harm in Act 2 and Act 3, so I'd say at least a half dozen and that's without going through by hand to count. There are some town portal points that would be pure death if you happened to spawn near a Fast pack modifier but I don't really count those because you can always go back.

My friend's Launcher decided the game was up to date. His game didn't. He couldn't play. Minutes later, his launcher decided to completely reinstall/download Diablo 3 on another partition. After that, his game decided that his Hardcore character was DEAD!!!

I logged out together with him, in town. Trust me when I say his char shouldn't be dead. We both posted a ticket. Pray for us that we won't get a patronizing and apathetic "you've been warned before you started Hardcore mode" reply from Blizzard. He's the victim here. We both are since we only play together.

Fuck.

repeat after me, logging out in town does not work. You always start at your last checkpoint.

your fault.

Also, nin is right - (internet security is what i do for a living), so many folks are not willing to take ownership of thier own internet security its fucking scarey.

What. The. Fuck.

Yes, I'm actually heated and pissed off out of my mind reading all those smart-ass remarks from wanna-be know it alls trying so goddamn hard to sound like their opinion is superior. If you ever fly through the windshield of your new car because you didn't notice the loose bolts at the buttom of your seatbelt, fate should have it that the carcompany spits on your bloodied face in laughter. You should've known what to look for before you went for a drive, you amateurs.

How often are checkpoints in locations that could have monsters spawned on top of you upon entering the game? Half the time? More? Less?

You know what's scary here? That we have to talk about internet security, authenticators, etc... for a GAME. This hobby has become a complete CF and people are defending it... that's also VERY scary. Diab-WOW... a new age in gaming, for the worse.

Well it's all very silly. No one has any clue what really transpired so its a bunch of people dissing on some dude who isn't even here. Blizzard isn't likely to announce an internal security problem unless it involves credit card data or some other liability so we'll never know.

I think the suggestion to adopt better authentication is the only real answer, it will protect people who don't know any better and help ActiBlizz save some costs.

Ah, ok. First, thanks for that explanation. Second, what a bunch of baloney that the game doesn't/can't save your log out location.

I hate that as well. I'm used to logging out in town, and still find myself doing it in D3, even though it doesn't matter.

I've been jumped at the spawn point the moment I logged in more than a few times, and I hate it...

Fuck.

Are you sure he was logged into the correct region? I think there was an issue if you had the EU launcher but played on the US region the launcher wouldn't patch the game but without the patch you couldn't play in the US region. Regardless, that setting should be more visible.

your fault.

It's his fault logging out in town will kill his hardcore mode character? Really?

what i assume happened (and i know assumptions are the mother of all screw ups),

is he logged out in town expecting to be back in town when he logged in. he relogged in at somepoint and loaded where he was supposed to *at the last checkpoint* and proceeded to get owned by a pack stood next to the checkpoint.

had a mate who lost a char the same way - and it because he didnt realise you always start at your last checkpoint - not where you log off - the game is checkpoint based and has no concept of positional persistence upon exit.

like i said, admittedly assumptions, asumptions.

given the comment of "i logged out in town tho", its not a massive reach.

Most people hacked probably have no idea how or even if their machine was hacked so asking them to take responsibility is a moot point. Do you yell at your girlfriend if her WoW account gets hacked? She probably clicked on a lolcat from some friend and got something without ever being slightly aware. Those are the kinds of people who buy Blizzard games, these are mass market products. Blizzard might as well just assume every user is stupid and force them to either use an authenticator or confirm login IP changes. It's a minor inconvenience that will save everyone involved a lot of time and money.

so its ok to be ignorant and do nothing about it when you realise you are missing some info?

no i dont shout at my wife for getting owned, i do however expect her to at least try to work in a safer fashion once its happened as she is now aware of the threat and can empower her self to do something about the risks?
