Interestingly, I think these guys may have been banned?
They are no longer on my recently played list, and they were the last people I played with. I've now sworn off public games.....

Agreed...Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
All they would have to do is pull the 10 sec to log out thing.
You get a 10 second timer before you go to the logout screen, make that say, 30 seconds, and that should be long enough that you can't abuse it to remove people to stop them from dying. Then just make them auto exit to menu instead of the 10 seconds where you sit there attackable and killable.

Lost a pre-paragon monk shortly after launch too, but that was just to a normal DC which of course is to be expected. This one just feels wrong heh

Hey guys,Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
First, I don't want this to come off the wrong way. I lost a hardcore character because of this, but I certainly don't expect to get it back, and I'm hardly crying about the death... but I've looked on the interwebs and have been unable to find information about this and I'm more annoyed than anything.
I was playing in a public game last night (hardcore, act 3 inferno) and when I join, there were 3 other people. One of them was obviously afk in town (paragon 0, crap gear, would have died almost instantly outside of town). I asked if he's been afk long, and the people in the game said yes, and agreed we should vote kick him. Since I just joined, my option wasn't available yet, so I waited the 5 minutes or so and then it lit up for clicking. After clicking it and him not being booted in a minute or two, I asked the other guys to do the same.
We were out in a cave in the fields at this point (a minute after trying to vote kick him) and I get a message on my screen that says "You're going to be removed from the game, find safety!" with a 10 second count down. At first I was like lol, they vote kicked me? They must have been friends with the guy or something. So I tried to run away, and of course was rubber banded back to the spot I was running from. Tried to blow a potion and a defensive CD as the timer was running out, but they didn't work (lag?).
I was at about 50% at this point when ... wait for it... instead of booting me from the game, it brings up the log out countdown screen where I have to sit for 10 seconds w/o being able to do anything before I get logged out. And of course, I die during it. After relogging because of some error, my character was dead, and my recently played showed all 3 people from the other game sitting at menus, they all got removed as well.
I guess my real question is... what would cause this? Does blizzard make a habit of just closing games? My favorite fantastical theory is that the guy in town that didn't belong there was hacking of some kind and blizzard auto-detected it and closed the game, but that sounds pretty far fetched. It just seems strange to me. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? HC or SC.

Hey there,Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
First, as someone mentioned, my first tip would be to just play MP0. The real reason to play MP1 when farming XP/gold is so you can get Act 3/4 quality loot from act 1. Remember that the life scaling on the mobs is higher than the extra Xp you get from MP1. You can see that here on the official forums.
You can see that at MP1, mobs have 50% extra life, but you only get 10% extra XP and 25% MF and GF. It would make sense then, that unless you're 1 shotting mobs, the 50% extra time it takes to kill them isn't a good return on your time.
In addition, as someone mentioned, it should be easy to find some cheap movement speed boots. It may not seem like a ton, but it really goes a long way. In addition, once you get a little more gold, you can pick up a cheap set of Lacuni Prowlers (bracers) with movement speed as well.
Also, I always recommend playing public games. Now that the mobs life scaling is much smaller than it was, the combination of extra buffs, and the fact that often people in public games have more dps than I do I find that it goes extra fast. It also lets you wear a few pieces of MF/GF gear and get away with it without slowing your farming speed... don't feel bad, everyone does it =P. Plus, you'll often find yourself with a Barb or Monk tanking that will make your job much easier.
As far as replacing gear to improve farming speed, I might look at your chest as a piece of low hanging fruit as well as switching to a red gem in your helm for the extra XP while leveling... because you can probably drop a little HP if you're going to be playing public games (again, highly recommended... it's much faster).
Sorry for the wall of text, hope it helps!

My main piece of advise is to learn quickly when you need to run away. If you're not topped, and don't have anyway to heal yourself immediately .. start looking for a way out.Posted in: Hardcore Discussion
To go along with that, when you're running from an elite (and you will have to do this as you gear up) don't EVER run toward uncovered portions of the map. Ever! It's a good way to over pull and wind up having to reroll.
And remember, Over-leveled, over-geared, over-prepared.
