Pay for HC Char Resurrection? It's just an idea he was kicking around, but as I noted in a post on the main page, here's something Bashiok threw out for discussion. One pay-for idea that specifically relates to Diablo that I thought was kind of interesting was the chance to resurrect a fallen hardcore character. I think this was mentioned by a fan, as far as I know we’re not even thinking about these types of pay-for options yet. But, I think it’s kind of interesting. I’m not sure if I like the idea or not, which is probably why I like thinking about it. There are some obvious pros and some obvious cons, but I’m not sure there’s a clear cut answer as to whether it would work well or not. I reacted to this concept about as well as a cat doused with a bucket of water, but maybe that's just me? Can anyone imagine this sort of thing working with hardcore mode? Would it bring new people in? Would it fundamentally change the mind set of hc players? What if it could only be done once per character? What if it brought that character back so you could get their equipment, but not actually play them? What if they had some kind of emblem signifying their resurrected status (like a giant dollar/euro/pound/yen sign floating over their head). Or is it a total no go to have any kind of resurrection with a HC mode?
