According to the information there, players can expect single-life hardcore realms on this summer. When playing on these realms, players will be unable to resurrect, but they can log on and interact as a ghost after they die. Players will start on a completely fresh server and be able to duel with other players to the death using /makgora.
If you’re wondering why you can return as a ghost, it’s mostly for things like turning over guild leadership and just hanging out with friends who weren’t there when you died.
As far as dueling to the death, this will be a new feature for the official hardcore servers, allowing players to fight to the death if necessary. It’s worth noting that Blizzard doesn’t want players to feel like they’re trying to replace the community hardcore mode – or change anything about how it works.
Note: Activision Blizzard has been sued by California’s Civil Rights Department, alleging violations of California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act and Equal Pay Act. CEO Bobby Kotick is alleged to have known about the alleged violations within his company. These allegations have all been denied by Activision Blizzard and the company points to additional diversity and inclusion training as past examples of taking the accusations seriously at the time they were made.
