Couldn't see the Sphinx as it was being blocked by another quest. Teleported to a random person, and instantly died. Quite akin to dying to an Ent sitter, is it not?
Give me a reason to keep playing this game when shit like that can happen. THAT is what my countless hours of effort and devotion to getting a Crown culminates in? Are you joking?
That, piled on top of the fact that hard work is essentially fucking pointless in this game. I dedicated to grinding for a Jugg for about 150 hours in July (going to fresh realms, pushing to liches, and killing the Hermits/Sphinxes). And the result? Nothing. Yet, a player like Weed (keep in mind this isn't an attack at him in any way, just using him as an example), probably has a similiar playtime as I do and has gotten over 10 of the fucking things. That's on top of the previous 3 years of attempting to get one. And the result? Nothing.
Rebuilding is not an issue, I've got other 8/8 characters and creating another 8/8 Warrior would be effortless.
But when I have to rely on something not within my control (RNG), where's the fun in that?
I'm completely willing to accept a death in this game if it was due to my stupidity. But don't try and tell me that this was. I'll reiterate; I could not see what was happening, before I knew it, I was dead. Not within my control.
