The thrill of staying alive is much more intense for me on hardcore, when i clear a rift higher then the previous one, it really feels like i achieved something. Been playing it this way since launch, ripped trough lot's of toons but it still get's me excited ^^ No problem on lagg or bad connection here tbh..24 MS most of the time.
the amount of conspiracy theories and home trained networktechnicians in this thread, is distustingly high..
The closest to a word being uttered about the current situation, is a CODING ERROR - its negatively effecting the calculations of the game to an extent where it makes it lag, and thats the bottom line of it right now.
New server, bigger networks (as some1 suggested) will help absolutely nothing, Theres even a guy on the first page, explaining what im to lazy to explain to everyone, but i definently suggest u go read his reply about coding error. Cause this is excactly where the problem persists...

The only issues I have had on HC this
season, was issues that I could track back at my own connection. Be it
needing to reset the router, or actually reset the connection on my pc,
that seems to have been the only factors.
Well I have played hc all this season and I have lost many characters (DConoBarian#1671) I am at 624 and everytime I get my gems lvld around the 40 mark I have been disconnected or error code messages. so it does happen and it hurts lol. Smiles.....
I have played D for many yrs now from the original to the now.
I have just changed computers and we will see how this works.
So, today I've experienced my first RIP caused by Blizz servers (not the first RIP ever for me, of course) - and it was the most stupid thing I've seen sinse I started playing D3
Just assembled my Archon Wiz, powerleveled to 70 and tried my first solo grift (lvl 40). Made it almost to RG in less than 5 minutes, just ran through a clear place without monsters - BOOM, "connection to the server is lost". Well, ok, I press "OK" and see my toon in the menu still alive. I try to start a new game and get "Game Creation Error"! I Log out, restart D3, toon is still alive, I try to start a game - the same error! 3 minutes have passed since disconnect occured, my connection works perfectly, but I still can't create a game... And then, after 3 minutes I see a message appearing in Clan chat that my toon is dead because some white monster came from somewhere and killed it!
So, I've got no ideas except for the game itself played with my Wiz after the disconnect and lead him into the grave If I remember right, toon should disappear from the game after 10 seconds, so something was definitely wrong with the server. Let's hope that 2.4 will finally improve the performance. I'll try to stay HC unless we will see really serious issues on 2.4 PTR.
