Death by Disconnect: An Internet issue(1)Category: HardcoreJuly-11-2014 10:19 AM PDT (5 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
Having myself been dropped from games many times and never dying, I felt lucky to have survived.

Before the launch of Reaper of Souls I upgraded my internet connection and now I have a blazing speed of 62.9 Mbps. The game loads super fast and my latency bar has never gone into the orange nor red. Also since upgrading my internet, I have never been disconnected from a game. I even increased the rendering options to make the game visuals more realistic.

Is it possible, that a good majority of dropped connections are because of a person's internet connection rather than the game servers?

For the longest time I was playing on a wireless DSL connection over at my place. People thought I was crazy for playing HC on it, and well… I was. I would regularly lose characters every couple of months. I’m kind of surprised they lasted as long as they did – entering Rifts was pretty much always a death sentence. I recently upgraded to a connection comparable to you, Melk – no issues since.

I can definitely appreciate how difficult it is for some of us to get on a direct connection, but in my own experience these HC deaths have been as a result of my own set up.

In case anyone wants to check it out, here’s our general connection troubleshooting article which includes some helpful tips.
