Why do people keep reporting about the kid that died playing, he's not the first death, first death was in the first week.

Oh my mistake, thought it was relatively new and checked back a few pages in the thread, nothing.

Thank you Blizzard, for letting users only search for 3 properties on the AH

That story is a bit of a beat up anyway. Plenty of people die each day doing stupid things unfortunately.

You're right, nothing more stupid than dying for a video game.

On a pretty beast legendary streak - 7 from my last 6 farm runs, 3 so far today from 2 runs (all 61+ as well ).

None of them are really any good, of course.

An 18-year-old gamer in China died after playing the best-selling "Diablo 3" game for forty hours straight.

That's right, the teen spent an entire work week's worth of hours gaming non-stop, collapsed and then died. So reports the Australian Associated Press citing Taiwan's United Daily News as the source of the information.

According to the AP, the teen booked a private room at an Internet cafe in southern Taiwan and then proceeded to play for nearly two days without eating.

Can't tell if you're trolling to annoy everyone here, or you didn't read previous posts (if you're not trolling, it's been posted multiple times now)

Anyone been noticing lag spikes? or something like that?
I keep moving 1 screen away, teleports me back to where I was 3 seconds ago and this happens 4-5 times then I die

Not to mention the "timed out" messages which kick me back to main menu

ye its been posted already but i dont understand why everyone is shocked? its not even that bad, 40hrs is nothing even without food. there was obviously other underlying conditons and this is just another fear mongering about gaming.

Yes but sitting in the same position for 40 hours will have a really negative effect on circulation. I don't think it was the 40 hours that killed him, I think he was probably not the healthiest guy to begin with.

yeah thats my point, he would have had to have had underlying conditions to begin with and the sitting in one spot for 40hrs triggered the heart attack.

he prob had 10 V drinks as well. people kn the dessert can survive longer then 40 hours. fucking dumb though surely he would have notive alot of lagging gameplay and then probably short breathing and the rest. And no toilet break????
