Sorry, but what exactly changes if you manage to get to level 60 (aside from the rewards you receive)? Says you will be able to participate in raids without risk of loosing my character, but is that it? I mean, can't you play normally, use the auction house, trade with other players without restriction, enter PvP areas without the risk of loosing the character, die out of dungeon, etc?

When you reach 60 your hardcore character becomes a normal character. All restrictions are removed.

Just died because of dc...pfff
Same, server DC (not my internet), after 5 min of trying to log back in, my almost 20 shaman is dead. Didn't even have aggro before DC. Absolute nonsense. Took all my motivation away tbh.

Why all the complaining? Want hard, do Ironman like the retail and classic servers do. No potions or buffs, or buff food. No professions. Only white and gray gear, no instances. No skills and yes you register for it so cheating is caught pretty fast. But why would you cheat? Disqualification for using potions, anything other than self buffs or any weapon or gear green or above.
This version of hardcore is a very nice version. It fits in with the relaxed Turtle wow style. I like it. It's TURTLERIFFIC! turtle_in_love_head

Would it be possible that the death of a HC character does not prevent the player to continue playing it but only loses the HC challenge (not being able to get the title), removing all the restrictions of HC challenge ?

That defeats the purpose of the challenge right? to keep the items once you die as well?

Hello Turtle community! I tried hardcore mode on classic, but i don't really want to support Blizz anymore, so i wanted to move here, cause i found this server to have the most similar mode to one that i experienced and really loved, even after i, sadly, died. But one thing is bothering me here... Is it still the rule, that even if you die due to a bug or server DC, you still end the challenge? I probably wont create a character here, if that is the case, since it seems really unfair, because that is something that's totally out of your control. I can only imagine dying to untargetable mob, who chased me to oblivion, or reconnecting (after server DC) just to see my corpse. Maybe a video or picture could be valid enough proof that it was actually server's fault that someone died?

The rules are final and are not a subject of change, I'm sorry.

I did not participate in pvp with the horde, but I was killed by the Horde horn while leveling in the western region. The character Marazmus is a paladin for the alliance. It was said that when choosing a hardcore mode, pvp will not be available. How is this understood by the administration?

We never said PvP would not be available, it was your task to ensure you aren't flagged, I'm sorry. We added a lot of additional restrictions to prevent HC from being unwillingly flagged but there're cases where you have to be careful: do not attack PvP-flagged NPCs or do not buff or heal players with the green names.

This must be initially specified at the beginning of the hardcore mode. You didn't notify it from the start, so what. Am I wasting my time? I have everything recorded on video - I stream and record all my content

This is incompetence on the part of the administration. I adhered to all the announced conditions at the start. I want to understand this situation. Spoil your own impression of the server by leaving the real facts unresolved

There is nothing to announce. The game has its own PvP mechanics and you need to educate yourself on how they work. Turtle WoW already offers much protection from flagging yourself accidentally when doing HC, but in the end, you still need to step carefully. It's part of the challenge.

This is not an answer! It is necessary to voice about such mechanics. Don't do such mean things. Interest is completely lost due to such an attitude towards their players

There are players who have gotten much further than you over a dozen times, dying time and time again and getting right back up on the horse. When you accept the hardcore challenge, you are implicitly agreeing that you have extensive understanding of the core WoW game mechanics, and you are tackling the odds and playing extremely cautiously.

You are not owed a "CAUTION: COFFEE IS HOT. DO NOT SPILL ON YOUR PENIS" level of warning about every conceivable way you can get yourself killed. The Staff does not owe you or anyone else hand-holding for a HARDCORE (look the definition up) challenge which grants nothing more than prestige. It is not a necessary feature for progression, gives no gameplay advantage, is nothing more than for bragging rights. Quit complaining that you aren't being babysat and implying that the Staff is disrespectful or otherwise unmindful of the community.

Accept the answer given, or leave. But certainly do not post again unless your response is going to be "I understand."

When your character dies, the game ends for you. If you choose to create and play a hardcore character, you do so at your own risk: we will not restore any deceased hardcore characters for any reason including connection problems, bugs, global warming, your little sister, or any other reason whatsoever.
 
Take some time. Gather your thoughts. Have a cool beverage. Make a battleplan. Then kick this server's butt with your new, better Hardcore character!

Don't give up! You can do it~! (:
