Hey again, good people of the SPF After having tried getting back into D2 LoD only to find the inspiration and fun gone, due to having done this 100000 times before, I am hereby trying a suggestion to accomplish 2 goals: A. Get me playing D3 again, with a sense of purpose and fun. B. Trying to get the D3 SPF going as a community again, as it seems it hasn't really gotten that on track as of yet. My suggestion, as the title suggests, is starting our very own SPF Ladder, whether softcore, hardcore or both. The rules I am thinking of are something along these guildelines: 1. We play single player, but have the option to team up with other ladder players for private multiplayer games. 2. We play completely self found, and are not allowed to use the AH nor the RMAH. We can trade between our own ladder characters, and we can trade amonst our group of ladder players. Obivously, the SC and HD groups will have separate item pools. 3. We start a ladder documentation here on the SPF where we can update our progress ourselves, as well as tell of our heroic feats, great finds and untimely deaths right here on the forum. The brackets are on the last page of this thread. Simply quote the last post and edit your advancement in your post in order to keep track of everybody's advancement. 4. Gold- In case you are not doing a wipe and fresh start like yours truly, keep good track of the amount of gold you have in your respective stash before starting a ladder char, and keep updating the brackets with your current amount of gold found by that char. This will work on the honor system, and will make it possible to participate in the ladder without doing a wipe. 5. Artistans and stash tabs- We are all in different phases of our game, and we are not going to stress out about this. Whether you have all your tabs and upgrades or none, I believe at it's core, especially in HC, this is not what will help you top the ladder. Whatever you have, you go ahead and use it. Here's a link to an older vid py Kripp, back when I got back into the game and started playing self found hardcore... I hope this is the right vid at least... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2OCMa2kOTA You players will be able to choose whether you want to play the ladder SC or HD, and the chars will be stored and ranked on the same ladder, with the HC guys having just a bit extra pride in knowing they haven't died yet, hehe. Personally I will be playing HC, even though my own connection ain't stable enough for the moment, having lost 3 wizards and one dh due to dissconnects already. The choice is up to you, but I feel there is nothing like the rush knowing you're mortal, in order to enjoy this game. The ones playing SC will focus on the race towards Pl100 self found, which would be fun in itself :crazyeyes: Vega.
