A simple request Devs

    Maybe this isn't really a simple request but I know we all go through this now and then. what I mean is when we get an error report and get booted, lose power, lose connection, or the server goes down unexpectedly and our characters stay visible if they where visible at the time for a few minutes.
    • If we are hunting at the time this is usually a death sentence for our character which is a major bummer. My request is when these things happen that our characters automatically go invisible no matter where they are or what they are doing at the time even if they are targeted at the time. that can save us a lot of frustration and anger.
    It is one thing when we die and we have control that is part of the game but it is another thing when we die because we lost connection somehow that is just not right if you ask me.

    That's just too exploitable.

    What's to stop people from disconnecting as soon as they're losing?

    It happens with pets a lot now, and now you want to extend this ability to players?

    I wasn't thinking of how it can be abused but you have a very good point there I just wish they could stop the error reports and the lag at least.

    I completely agree.

    'Alt+F4' would become a very very common macro overnight.
