    Call To Arms - Round #4: Saturday, November 22nd, 2008, 10am-10pm EST

    *** CTA round #4 runs Saturday, November 22nd, 2008 from 10am-10pm EST ***

    Reference: "A Call To Arms for those daring to play in a cooperative, reset-style group environment, untwinked, from Act 1 Normal to Hell Baal, hardcore, without hacks of any kind, in one sitting. Original thread. CTA Round #1. CTA Round #2. CTA Round #3. Team CTA Ladder Rush 2008 Domination. Static Enchantress build. CTA Round #4 (part 1). CTA Round #4 (part 2). CTA Round #5. We built teams, dominated the ladder, and made great memories. The unparalleled camaraderie, laughter, and sheer fun we shared made these our most epic and treasured Diablo II gaming experiences ever."

    TIME: 10AM - 10PM Eastern Standard Time, excepting majority veto. Group will finish within 8-12 hours. Round #1 was anti-summon/teleport. Round #2 was cookie factory. Round #3 was proximity synergy. Round #4 is omgstaticchantressforthewinyo. Also, this time, we cut tedium with 50k gold a pop. Please post to confirm your participation ASAP and again on Friday, November 21st.

    VENUE: Battle.net USEast Server.

    TEAM: Built to maximize the ultra-efficient Static Enchantress, cutting normal runtime as per prior CTA learnings.

    The Call to Arms is an exercise in teamwork, cooperation, and sleep deprivation. There's no tangible/transferable profit to be made, save for the glory and pride of contributing to one of the most noble online-game-related-thingies out there. It's simple: CTA members value their comrades more than the ITAMZ splattering around them.

    DO NOT ADD YOURSELF UNLESS YOU ARE 100% SURE YOU WILL BE THERE FOR THE ENTIRE 10am–10pm EST SESSION ON Saturday, November 22nd. No-shows blacklisted etc.

    I'd love to sign up for the ZealVictor spot.

    While I may not be guaranteed a spot, I know I can commit to this right away.

    Double post to say I'll take the Static/Chanter. I don't see how I can kill anyone with that.

    Add me to reserve. I need to check some dates later on tonight and this may change my availability. I was in session 3 with a MA sin.

    I'd be open to whatever build you want me to take. Sin or Pally is my favored pick.


    nub! there's no hammerdins here.!

    I don't know, you may accidentally Chant a converted monster who will switch back real fast and wtfpwn someone with low FR.

    It could happen! (Actually I don't think it can, but it would be funny!)


    Still not sure who I'll be. If you need me to be porting again, I can. I'm leaning towards Javazon atm.

    No! It has to be lies! It has to be!

    Now that I think about it, have you ever made it to one?

    And that ladder screenshot is pure win. Almost makes me want another reset. Almost.

    I've never been in a CTA.

    The rushing - TeleOrber - aspect of it turns me off in a way that I can't describe.


    I play quite a bit with you and Shaharris anyways. I'm good with reading about the trip to Baal. :cloud9:

    Why so noncommittal?

    Why so indecisive?

    Why so lack of communicatey about what you wanna play?

    Why so racist?

    Don't be fool. The only parts that get teleported through are Baals. And POSSIBLY chunks of A2-A3 Hell, but not super-likely.

    Most everything else is team carnage.

    I refuse to be teleported, even if it is foolish. :alright:

    Meh. I'll bet that anyone who's ever played in my CTA will unabashedly agree that it is, hands down, the most immersive, team-oriented, cooperative D2 gaming they've ever experienced.

    I'm of the opinion that every other iteration of this game pales meekly in comparison, excepting perhaps a ladder reset rush -- but that's like nitpicking the ride differences between a Lexus RX350 and a BMW X5.
