With the race to reach Hardcore level 100 in Diablo 4 in full swing, the first player to achieve this feat has unfortunately died to a disconnect.
Last week saw Blizzard announce a challenge that would see Diablo 4 players race to reach level 100 in the game’s Hardcore mode. The first 1,000 players to achieve this would forever be commemorated by getting their names added to a Lilith statue.
The First Winner
Before the game had even fully released and was only available in early access, Twitch streamer Souaïb ‘cArn’ Hanaf became the first person to reach Hardcore level 100. The achievement saw him present his proof to Blizzard who have now officially recognised his incredible feat.
However, yesterday saw the run come to an unfortunate end when cArn died to a disconnect.
THe First Player To Reach Hardcore Level 100 Dies
During his live stream, cArn was fighting some enemies as usual when his game suddenly faded to black. Despite many tries to save it, he was booted from the game.
Unfortunately, as Blizzard recognised that some people in the challenge may use this to their advantage, they made it so that any disconnect is viewed as a death.
As a result, cArn found out that his Hardcore level 100 Barbarian had died when he rebooted the game. After 82 hours of playing, you can understand how he felt when faced with this revelation.
Luckily, as the steamer had already been recognised by Blizzard for his achievement, the disconnect wasn’t as bad as it could have been. However, now his character has died in the most difficult mode, he will have to start from experience level 1 again. Very unfortunate.
For now, the race for the first 1,000 people is still ongoing. Can you join them?
