    Okay, well, I know most of the losers out there are wasting their lives playing WoW, but the problems I have with this are:

    1. I will never ever pay for online gaming
    2. I hear WoW is crack cocaine and I'd like to stick to the heroin.

    And I was reading this thread and wondering - who's still playing D2? The reason I ask is a somewhat materialistic one - I don't want to start from scratch, and if someone could drop me some equipment, that would be great.

    More importantly tho, these kind of games are always more fun with friends. So I thought I'd throw this out to test the water and see if/where I want to sign up.

    Same reasons I don't even want to start. All my friends are always saying, "Just try it once. You get a few days free." Yeah, those free days are meant to get you hooked so that they can get their $15.00/month or whatever the fee is. No thanks, I'll go play Warcraft 3 for free...

    Anyway, I haven't played Diablo Dos for about eight months...I think I uninstalled it. I quit mostly because I couldn't find any friends still playing it. I'm the only RPGer in my group of friends that really sticks with games for years so it's hard to find people still playing those older games. Sorry I couldn't be of any help. I remember having some pretty good equipment I could have given you.:sad

    Historically, I played on USEast, but my accounts there are long since deleted, I'm certain. So I'm not anywhere right now.

    @ Setoshi - Cool. I'll be out most of tomorrow, but maybe tomorrow morning or Sunday. :knk

    I've just recently gotten up to the fifth act, the expansion, on nightmare difficulty with a sorceress. I LOVE using the firewall and frozen orb to slow them.

    What other games do u play KnK? and what do u mean by drop you some equipment?? Do you mean you want to hack your character??? It kills the enjoyment that way trust me! It's much more rewarding and fun (which is the reason you play in the first place, right?) when you stumble across those rare yellow and gold items yourself.

    Haha! I haven't played in like 2 years XD

    I used to have a level 97 Amazon on US West, with all sorts of kickass gear my friend dropped me. I also had a level 87 Bear Druid...I always regretted not going wolf--those fuckers always owned my bear in duels. XD

    Have fun on D2, KiNK :D

    Then it seems that I am one of those loser with crack addiction :mad.
    I have been playing WoW for almost a year now and I telling you that it is one of the best MMORPG out there. I can play it all day and still not getting tired off it, one time me and two friends who also play WoW stayed upp almost three days playing and talking through ventrilo it was the best three days of my life. I pay a 12.99 euro per month and I dont find that to be much money.
    To much people are just to cheap with money and to obsessed with what they use there money for. Come on people, money is just money it's not that you are paying with your life.
    I always check my bank deposit to see how much money I have, if I think that I'm losing to much money hell I just freeze my account and work extra hard to earn some more.

    "1. I will never ever pay for online gaming" I also thought that I will never ever pay for a online game and then when I tried WoW I bought it directly and now I can't stop playing it.
    And finally Kiri no Kuchiki dont refer the WoW players as loser :mad you can refer the game to being bad (ohhh that hurt :crying) and just so you knew I also love to play Diablo 2 is one of the games that i like the most.

    PS try WoW and you will love it :wink

    Yea, KnK, I was extremely anti monthly gaming, then a friend forced me to get one, and I loved it.
    If you can afford to spare the money, I highely suggest getting WoW.

    But on the topic of D2. I was the D2 god back in the day. When it was first released, I plalyed the heck out of it making a level 90 Necro, had tons of good items. Sold account for 300 bucks.
    Played casually untill the expansion, but then all my characters werre above 80, and I had the best items in the game. I probably could have sold it all for another couple hundred, gave everything away to friends, sold some items to freshman for lunch money.

    That was what I loved about Diablo 2. I was getting paid to play it.
    Im suprised people are still playing it! Sounds interesting, I might have to pick it up again. But like you said, it would totaly blow without friends / items to start off with.

    But it's very good I give u that.

    Are you bloody serious??? :amazed $300? Like American???

    Geeez the things some people spend their money on. This gives me an idea.

    I'm gonna go sell my soul on Ebay and see who the hell wants to buy it and for how much! Or perhaps a better bargain would be to just sell off some random objects at home that I don't need but call them Horcruxes... mmm... wise investments :drool

    I use to play quite often but not anymore. My brother was a freak at that game and played it non stop. Seriously he had like 5 or 6 level 99 accounts.

    I played Diablo II non-stop from when it came out, up to LoD. I then played that non-stop until about a year ago.

    I think I've outplayed the game. I did play it for about 3 months after the new patch 1.10 hit, but quickly decided to call it quits.

    The online community for the game is dead. Dueling is no longer fun, because everyone has the same things, cheats, dupes, and hacks. It's pointless these days.

    The only thing that could bring me back to playing a Diablo title, is a third installation.

    yea I played Diablo 2 but I quit for a long... long time.
    These days I'm playing mainly Warcraft 3 and Starcraft... Footmen Frenzy 4 is soooo addicting...

    WoW? I played on my friend's account but I QUIT. He was a level 56 Undead Warlock able to summon Infernals and all that cool stuff
    But basically when your level's that high, there's no change 2 ur account. You just kill and make, sell... until you're so bored you don't even want to log on...


    Does anyone here play warcraft 2?
    (this is off topic...)

    Excuse me but we're not ALL crazy korean's playing untill we die since i assume you keep hearing these stories.
    You buy a game for like 50? and play it for a couple of weeks, highly 1 or 2 months, for MMORPG's you pay less and through the month while being occupied with the same thing much longer, you spend in the end less money for sure. . .


    Warcraft 3 and WoW are 2 totally different games lol.. .
    The test days are there to give u an image of the game like all the MMO games.
    Again i stick to my above written explenation . .

    For a while I was playing on Europe, but I stopped playing because I just got bored. I'd pick it back, but I'd be putting my grades at risk and I play(ed) HC Ladder anyway. =\

    Bumping this because I actually started anew finally. I have a lvl 26 barb, and Setoshi is here with me with his lvl 23 Paladin, and we're getting our heads handed to us.

    Does anyone want to help a sister out and, like, part with some spare equipment or rush us or something? I feel naked without my lvl 86 sorc with Tal Rasha's stuff.
