I was on a server which had the "No response received for xx" so i logged out. My health status was Hydrated and Healthy before doing this. I joined another server shortly after and everything was grey as if i was dying and i was starving and thirsty.
I proceeded to play and get back to a decent health status although everything still appeared grey. Got looted up and logged out.
When joining another server later on, my status reports went something like this immediately.
I am hungry
I am starving
i am dying of starvation
I need a drink
im dying of dehydration.
I immediately logged off and haven't logged back on since.
I've never had this prior to the 0.53 update.
