Once again - Martok death by LAG.

I had a lag from unknown reason: Returned and apparently a crocolisk killed me in the road

It doesn't show the killing blow though ... still trying to figure this out?

I am really beginning to appreciate just how HARD this Ironman thing really is ...

Requesting a reset? I am really sorry to have to do this for a second time :(

I just experienced pretty much a worst-case scenario related to the known bugs with pet pathing, and didn't have the presence of mind to screenshot it while desperately trying to stay alive and so now have very little proof of this claim, but here goes.

I was killing Bleeding Hollow Grunts to collect Cursed Talisman in Hellfire Peninsula. My pet was fighting three Grunts and doing fine when a Wolf Rider aggro'd me. I used Feign Death and the Wolf Rider aggro'd my pet. My pet chased a Grunt up the mountain as I released from FD to keep fighting. Then my pet got stuck on terrain and the mobs all evaded, then my pet despawned. The mobs (2 Grunts, a Wolf Rider, and his Wolf edit: from the screenshot it seems maybe 2 wolves?) returned to their spots, then immediately aggro'd me. Having already used FD, I tried to run, popped pots, Gift of the Naaru, etc, but ended up dead before I could go far at all.

Edit: When I say "Stuck on terrain" I mean that it was up on the slope, at an angle where it's feet weren't contacting the ground, and it wasn't moving, or attempting to move, not making any actions such as attacking, and not responding to my commands to attack different targets.

The only screenshot I have is after the death, and my combat log is completely out of order and doesn't show this death at all.

Is there any hope for this to be reversed?

Thank you. Not sure mine was lag-related, because I've been having a lot of pet pathing problems, where the pet gets stuck or refuses to attack... but I'll definitely keep the potential for lag problems in mind.

I agree! If I am spotting some lag I hearth and switch to a non-Ironman character.

Sometimes though, it just comes randomly out of nowhere.

Ah crapnuggets. If outgoing mail from a contestant is returned(due to timeout), what do we do? I believe Portio may have "received" auto-returned mail.
receiving outgoing mail back is fine, you sent it in the first place so it is no trouble to get it back.
Just to clarify, what if the outgoing mail was not auto-returned but was directly returned by the recipient? The mail in my Ironman's mailbox shows no indication that it is a return, except that is has the message I originally sent.

You can just leave it there. After a month it will get deleted.

Sure, but then I lose the item :)

I guess I'll just have to get to 80 before it expires!
