    Since diablo 3 has came out have you played diablo 2 or have you started playing for the first time because of diablo 3?

    No, ninjalooting hammerbots and constant advertising spam were the nails in the coffin for D2 for me. Was a really really good game until about 2008 or so.

    Yes of course. I am playing D2 more or less on a daily basis. Currently D2x is a more complete game than D3. Path of Exile is also better than D3 imo, so currently there is little reason to play D3.

    Because there is some downtime I can finally respond to some of these threads.

    No.

    I have been playing diablo 3 non-stop since launch, and it is fantastic.

    The difficulty of inferno has really kept me occupied for the last week and a half :p

    I haven't played for a few months. But why, I ask, do I still need to log into each character every 90 days (or whatever it is) to keep them active?

    Still playing it and enjoying it much more :) The only downside is the amount of bots online. It makes it tough to trade and socialize.

    Absolutely not. I've only kept playing this long because of a lack of a good ARPG. (TL was fun for like 3 days, TQ was nice for little while)

    Of course I keep Diablo II around! However I no longer play on realms for years. Single Player only, so I can take my time and not worry about ladder resets or character expiration (besides our SP community is amazing).

    I played LOD and Diablo 1 recently and I found Diablo 1 more satisfying. D2's online play is ruined, and the gameplay itself felt sluggish and boring. Diablo 1's gameplay was sluggish as well, but it had a certain charm that kept me far more entertained

    I really like Diablo III, finding it a fantastic game and I'm enjoying myself immensely in the two weeks I am playing it, but if there is one game I will never ever uninstall, it is Diablo II. Not playing at the moment, but I return to it about two times a year for a month or two, and I suspect the release of Diablo III will not change that.

    See, young grasshoppers, you CAN like both games.

    Playing median XL right now. If that counts. I'm more or less done with basic d2, but I'll probably put in a few more plays of mXL and eastern sun in my life.

    Because each character's name on a server has to be unique and since you have infinite characters it'd gobble up all the namezzz.

    Btw, your characters are only deleted now if it "expires" and then someone else uses the same name. So Diablo 2 literally lets you make infinity characters for forever. Just don't use SirShocksalot like a schmuck.

    Let that sink in when you compare the limits of other games, with their $ for character slots deals.
