    Diablo style "hardcore" game mode in WoW

    Do you think blizzard as a fun event can introduce permanent dead "hardcore" mode in WoW? Do you think it could make sense? The major thing missing is the fact that you can not grind lower level content many times out-gearing your current level content to minimize risk of dead.

    Do you think it could be fun to have such events or servers? And what kind of game-play and strategy would it bring for players and guilds?

    It would only really be viable on PvE realms, because the griefers would flock to that game mode and prevent people getting out of the level 1-10 zones.

    I doubt that there could be any profit in it, overall. I do see a lot of Ironman, but making content specificly for people whom WILL die before seeing it all, I don't think would be a good business plan.

    And it would ruin RPpvp servers, for the same reason. As well as ruin RP servers if they were to have an influx of people whom aren't really going to benefit the community much.

    No. No one would ever group up for anything. If it were an "event" for a day or two I doubt that anyone would even log in.

    Only if healers are removed from these servers / modes. There are an outstanding amount of assholes in this community who will roll healer just so they can refuse to heal any DPS they wish, wasting peoples time on purpose "for the luls".

    Just like there is an amount of DPS whom would refuse to assist a healer, or CC - most likely refuse to do CC/stun/interrupts.

    Oh hell no. No. no no no.

    Diablo is a game of personal responsibility (since it lacks dedicated healers) - if you die, it's your own fucking fault. World of Warcraft is a game that requires a high level of cooperation for the group to succeed. You can't put that kind of feature in place in a game like this.

    You pull it, you solotank it. If too retarded to get it, play your proper game like CSGO. Fuck I so love Neural Silencer and my GF as the dependable healer. Assholes like you get their punishment swiftly and inevitably.

    Haven't I seen this thread before, very recently.

    Game is too easy to have this mode outside of everything but raiding.

    I think an Ironman Mode where you can't use AH, Queue interfaces could be interesting. Like what runescape has.

    Stop Introducing Diablo-esk style things Into WoW, It's already been poisoned with too much randomness everywhere, loot crate drops from overwatch and legendary drops from diablo 3 as well, and a story similar to Starcraft now.

    Be original Blizz, that's what I want.
    Banned on WoW since April 2015 because Blizzard doesn't wanna help me when my account got hacked, Is being hacked not a good reason to return my account to me, Blizzard? I'm looking to speak to representatives and members of Blizzard's CS and other departments to help me fix this situation, since CS has failed me I want to seek other official channels. Feel free to message about this

    No, it could not be fun.
    No, it should not be done.
    No, it does not make sense.

    I think this could be a cool "micro holiday" length event where for a couple of days you play with the "die and your done" ruleset. Either a new content area, or leveling up from lvl 1 with accelerated leveling.

    If you make it to 110 you get to keep your character for the main game. This could be a cool alternative to paying $60 for accelerated leveling. And being a micro holiday, you cant do it very often.


    This would likely be a lot more work to implement then its worth because several things would need to happen:

    1. They would have to build a whole new zone/"island" area for it, complete with things to do there. (how long did they string out the sparse current "island" content and that's main game).
    2. They would have to revamp the leveling process and or build a system to where you can quickly level from 1 to max withing the few days of the holiday. (they cant even take the time to do this for the main game).
    3. This would have to be instanced content where somehow your character is copied for this micro holiday and if you die you can no longer participate but you dont actually lose your character you've been working on for years. Theres no way in hell anyone would take their 110 with 300+ days played into the game for this.

    edit: at the end of the day, probably not worth it.
