    Maybe there is 1 hardcore server that includes:

    1)  Coin-weight (No auto-denomination upgrade)

    2)  No Appearance Gear

    3)  Food/Drink/Sleep/Bowel-Movement Survival Mode

    4)  No Auction Houses (or public bathrooms)

    5)  Poopsocking

    6)  No maps, /tells, Guild UI (to preserve immersion)

    7)  First-person view only

    8)  No auto-follow

     

    I would play the absolute crap out of this server. I'd spend the whole time angry, stressed, and cursing at everything and everyone - and I'd love every minute of it.

    Dare I ask what "poopsocking" is?

    I think it may be best, at this time, to NOT use my imagination on this particular subject.

    So I cautiously await for a definition that may or may not, make my brain explode...

    You're waiting for a long respawn, where vigilance is required. Suddenly, your stomach rumbles. You ignore it. Fight through the pain. 

    It rumbles again. 

    And again. 

    Your strength is coming to an end. Sweat beads on your forehead. You can see that other guy, sitting there, staring at the same spot you are, hoping to swoop in as soon as that mob finally pops. Get up, even for a moment, and you just know that's when it'll spawn. You'll have sat there, all this time, for nothing. 

    In a panic, you look around. No ideas come to you. 

    You look down. 

    You look at your socks. Your nice, clean, white socks. 

    Desperate times.....

    ........

    .....

    ...

    Moments later, you're still sitting there. You haven't moved. The rumbling in your stomach has ceased. You sit there, secure in your camp, one sock poorer.

    It would also add a hazard to the game.  Watch your step.  If you "step in it", your charisma goes down.  It would affect the pricing of your interactions with vendors, and maybe somehow affect the group. :P

    Umm. No. No poop is needed.
    I am not going to spend my time online, in a game, looking down trying to avoid stepping in poop...
    I get enough of that in the backyard with my dogs
