    Weirdest Thing just happened

    Was running my newly made Frosty Dreamer Pally in Shenk, and the other unique (can't think of name now) but, I had just ID'd the two grand charms that I had found, one of them a sweet +1 Martial Arts +40 Life, the other a 12%FHR I was transfering them to stash, when the game froze, sort of. I still had a hold of the grand charm, but I could close the stash and click on any of the townspeople.

    I couldn't drop the charm!!!! Not that I wanted to because it was the skiller, but still.....

    So then, I got the old, Lost Connection screen. Huh oh, I say!!!!

    I couldn't get back into the game with the Pally, it said game didn't exist. This was a passworded game that I had been in for about ten minutes.

    Then I tried to create a new game, Fail to Join
    Try again, Fail to join
    Try again, Fail to join,

    Try another char, create a game No Problem
    Switch back to pally, fail to join

    Close D2
    Restart, Fail to join
    Restart Fail to join


    This goes on for 5 minutes.......
    Finally join a game, only one GC in stash, unid'd what the H*&l!!!! I scream

    Thank god, when I ID'd it, it was the +1 MA Lifer!!!

    What the hell?

    Dropped games have been happening too frequently. It's has become a regular occurrence these past few months.

    When it happens to me I also get temp banned on occasion...

    And it's not like I've tried to get back into the game multiple times or re-log, sometimes I get the ban without even doing anything :sad2:

    I get dropped and banned - oh well :tongue:

    A few years back I had a rollback right after I died in HC. Needless to say, I was tempted to keep using the sorc but meh... deleted she was. Couldn't bring myself to playing a resurrected char =P

    I was once in a Free-game. Somebody was quiting D2 and he dropped all his stuff. Well, I got Dream diadem and game crashed. Next time I joined game, Dream was gone. :cry:

    Yes, it's simply a rollback (for whatever server-side/database reason).

    Concerning the unidentified GC that turned out to be that exact same +1 MA 40 Lifer, that's a normal thing. The mods are fixed as soon as the item drops, no matter if it's identified or not.

    Re: Weirdest Thing just happened

    The ROLLBACK/COMMIT is a general database transaction mechanism. It guarantees that the database is kept in a coherent state by accepting or rejecting a given set of insert/update/delete operations (i.e. a transaction).

    The ROLLBACK is a feature that reverses the current transaction out of the database, returning the data to its former state. A rollback is performed when processing a transaction fails at some point, and it is necessary to start over.
