I played on dial up when I first got the game, but when I got to Hell, between the lost connections and lag, the death penalty became too much to bear and I switched to Single Player. Is a DSL out of the question too?
Well, I can't "try it" because I lost my d2, so I'd have to go and buy the battle chest or something. And dsl is out of the question, its not my choice to make. I've played d2 on aol before, but that was like years ago. I hope AOL stepped their sh*t up a bit.
dial up is ok. I spend half my d2 bnet life on dial up. Just be ready for common lag and a slow paced game with some disconnects. Don't have other programs running in the background like AIM or something.
