Server Problems Kill Stacks of HC Characters

Posted 11 Jun 2012 by

A few hours ago a massive lag spike hit the NA servers which unfortunately killed off stacks of HC players. Whole parties have been wiped and as you can imagine the HC community is not the happiest and they’re all more than a little nervous about playing with their HC characters now.

We are now a month into the game’s release and server problems still seem to be an issue. With players investing time building up their HC characters,  problems such as lag spikes need to be addressed sharpish. I know Blizzard said they won’t roll back HC characters, but when it comes to players being killed by technical issues outside of a player’s control then I think there is a good case to bend on that policy.

To the guys who were hanging out in town or checking gear when it happened, well you lucked out, and I bet you took a big sigh of relief.
