Not to be a dick to you but stories like this are the reason i dont play hardcore, and i actually laugh at the people that say "LOL SCRUBCORE" when making fun of people that play softcore. I lost a WD on hardcore that i put a good amount of time into and died to my own fault. I laughed about it and went back to softcore. To me the problem is when characters are lost outside of the players control due to server instability, ddos to blizz servers, isp problems, etc. Just not worth the time investment. RIP to your char though. Better luck next time.
