I think that would add a lot of challange to the game if your character would permanently die if you died in the game.

In MMO's death is an enevitable aspect of the game. In dungeon crawlers like D2/3 its reasonable to add a hardcore mode in because the games are straightforward and relatively easy. Even something like fall damage can kill you if you are climbing a JP and miss. It would be kind of a dumb MMORPG if one death permanently killed you.

No to this whole STUPID idea.
If you believe in Jesus Christ, have accepted Him as your Lord and Savior, and are 100% proud of it, put this in your sig.

Why is everyone keen on being a Spy / Sniper?
Because their handles are either xXxKwIkSkOpExXx or xXxD4rkS4Suk3xXx -- UrCa1988

If you want it, implement it yourself. Next time you die, delete your character.

Can't you just opt to not respawn and wait for somebody to come by and revive you? I mean that would make the most sense in terms of the game mechanics. If you die, you cannot waypoint. Somebody needs to come find you.
If you think my name is silly, you should call me either Rob or LaughingThesaurus.
No need for being strictly formal on a message board, right?

I would so love it if they implemented this. It would anger more noobs when I sit on top of them, and refuse to rez, but they know I have the power too.
