Anyone else feel like quitting? Hmm, townkills, pathetic trades, and dupes beyond control out there. Ladder season is not a season, they should call it a ladder year, everyone is so cocky and rich it's beyond control. And to top it off my buddy McSaladshaker quits! Why do I play? What's the point? Here's what I've done. I've built some seriously godly characters in the ladder. I built an Enchantress who can make your weapon do an incredible amount of fire damage (probably the most beefed up on any realm). I built a BO Barb who can cast level 46 BO. My frozen orb sorceress can lay waste to anything with over 1200 orb damage, and to top it off my MF char (my fourth MFer) wears 50% travs, perfect CGs, Tals gear, Double Ist'ed AliBaba, snarko etc., and her merc wears Tals and Snarko. I've been PKed a total of 2 times, but have PKed probably a couple dozen people. I've located a perfect 1/20/20/10 Annihilus that I found while killing Uber D for the bazillionth time, while I still have about a dozen imperfects on mules. I have located about every single unique in the game. I've made a 4xIst Monarch, and located about 2 dozen Wizzys, a dozen Occys, a perfect Death's Fathom and perfect Death's Web. My luck has also granted me 4 Stormshields and an SOJ and perfect BK ring. I've cubed a Pestilent Small Charm of Vita, and a Hibernal (8-20) Small Charm of Vita. There are also 2 Flaming and 1 Shocking sitting on mules. I have a .09 build Bowazon with 100% Upgraded gear. I also have made some ethereal rune-worded weapons just for the helluvit. I lost my interest in necros because everyone is making them. I have the godliest low level dueling gear, and some no-so-bad higher level gear. My favorite part of the game will always be Player Killing, but with everyone using Maphack again it's just not fun anymore. People are too chicken to fight, and that's just a shame. I've hosted Ironmans with some good giveaways. So I ask you. With all that I've done this ladder season, why oh why do I continue to play? I thought chasing the Beeef for his ear would be a new challenge, but I just can't seem to obtain the things I will need. I like the patch and all, but I'm just bored anymore. And untwinked play is nearly impossible because it's all "kill Andy now" and "Do Council for us". I like to play pubbies, and not with known groups because it's impossible to get those games together when I am available to play. If Blizzard had reset the ladder say every three months, that would be more than enough time, and would keep the game fresh and more enjoyable. But in the end the Ladder characters just became a new core character, starting like the game was just off the shelves and becoming out of hand within 4 months. Since the game is over 3 years old, it makes sense that only the die-hards are still playing it, and we die-hards need to have something to keep us stimulated. I found myself so bored of trying to trade for anything (the MP is a fantastic failure for HC in this patch, and forum trades are never for things that I can use). The only people I truly enjoy trading with anymore are my Pgem regulars, who constantly trade with me the PGems they have found. I also have enjoyed meeting many people and making the many friends I've made, and when they leave it's so hard for me to continue because they become like IRL friends. None of my IRL friends play D2, and have no interest in it. I guess the only things left are to be generous to those that are less fortunate than me. Or Sell it on Ebay. Or who knows. I leave it to you, vote in my poll.
