Last night I was in Act5 NM on my sorc and decided to go thru the red portal. As soon as I take a few steps and the skeletons start to come to life I get this message about my connection being interrupted.
It kicks me to the login and I get another message saying my CD key is being used by someone else. I am able to log back in immediately. I didnít think it was a big deal because itís happened before but this time, when joined a game I was at about 10% health and mana.
Maybe in the past Iíve never had that happen in a precarious situation, but I thought your character instantly quits? It seems while I was at the error screen my sorc was getting charged by multiple skellies, Iím lucky Iím alive.
Anyone know what causes that to happen or if itís avoidable at all?
That has happened to me too. The interesting thing is that I have two computers running D2 simultaneously, with 2 characters logged into two different games. The one I was playing got the interrupted notice, but the other one didn't. Which rules out anything on my side of my ISP as the cause. I figure it has to be some glitch at the bnet server, but that's just a guess.
The thing is, it may not boot you out right away everytime, and yes it can be a HUGE issue in HC. From my experience, there's CI's which I thought were instant, Unhan Excep, which are instant, internet failures which are near instant, then BSoD's which can take like 2 seconds. Unfortunately, I've been getting quite a few or each lately, and while if I am in town or just by a fallen, its fine. However, if by a dangerous monster, well that leads me to my next thing:
Last night I was toe to toe with Lilith, when I got the ever-so-fun Unhandled Exception. Needless to say, knowing how fast and hard she hits, I was freaking out thinking I just lost my Zealot and worse off would have been unable to loot. The lucky part was I must have dropped instantly, because I came back in game with a full Life bulb.
Dieing to Lilith because my character sucks is fine, dieing to Conviction Soul's is fine. Dieing to Fana Curse Extra Strong Lister is fine. Dieing to FE in NM, while sucky, is fine. But dieing to a game error or BSoD, screw that on so many levels, because then I have NO chance of looting and don't even get to hear the death scream.
Your only real safe way to avoid it, it to make a char that can take punishment for ~1-2 seconds just in case. Block helps alot, BO, or something with Minions. But other than that, its luck. I've lost a Sorc to the BSoD (at the time caused be heat issues) and she was my MF'er so I got screwed. I hit Black Marsh WP, then BSoD. Came back to a character in robes. Which was strange, seeing as how there wasn't a monster around, she had 75% block, I think ES was already up too, but I didn't even get to see her die.
