Well perhaps you find it boring with 10 min cooldown from the 3rd death. But consider WOW death penalty where you have to spirit walk from the nearest bind point to where you died then you had to respawn close to it and then pickup your body.

And you would get a stat reduction every time you died so at one point with serial death you would be unable to fight for a while. And still this is considered lenient death penaltys.

Eve is another MMO i played alot , there if you died , then the ship you flew and all the gear and cargo is either lost or spoils to the killer. And it would probably take 20 min to find a new ship and equip it. Unless you had a reserve. Fun game but it realy sucked to die.

That being said im not advocating harsher death penalties. Just reminding you all for MMO it doesnt come anymore EZmode.

I hear in the next game (vampire rpg) from the EVE creators there will be ways to die that permanently deletes that character. Now that i think would be to hardcore for me too.

People like the OP are why MMOs are getting worse and worse. Its hard to believe that the only true hardcore games were some of the first ever, and its only got easier and easier ever since.

10 minute wait time AFTER your 4th death, try 20 minute naked corpse runs or people being able to loot your corpse while you are dead so you come back to find half your gear gone.
