Other things that might help:
Join an already existing game for exp.
Xfer in pub games if possible or have one in common with your friends.

Ofc it happens to a lot of us to forget a char in game sometimes but let's all make an effort so we don't have to wait to create games ^^

Enjoy yourself!

That's in no way funny or amusing. Luckily I don't have any clout here, or there would be an IP ban on those accounts.

agreed - there are 3 games on the realm now with 1 person sitting there idle:

Meph Kill 02:22:39 *Krissz (Demon-Hunter)
Act 3 Start 08:28:22 *Cody (cZ)
Durance WP 03:19:06 *Adamsandler (BillyMadison)

Pretty lame...

is there a way to limit the amount of a time a char can stay connected in a game? for example after 3 consecutive hours in a single game the char would get c/i? if the person is playing its a simple rejoin since the game would stay open for some time after. and it would stop all the afk idle games

Yeah it happens to many of us, but a few people i won't name do it on a regular basis and sometimes for up to 15 hours.

That doesnt deserve a ban ofc but I think we would all benefit eiter an amelioration of the player's attention to log off or some kind of timer on games.

Also, remark that this is often occuring when people are trying to leach quests, which makes it even nastier.

well, the new change to characters joining lower difficulties where baal has not been killed means i cant even mule in (somebody else's) pubs if i wanted to.

Also, i make games where i am the only person in game all the time... but they are public and it's just because nobody likes me. :D
