    Ever Wonder Why...

    A lot of people in the trade forum claiming to "start over"

    and the list they put up are the likes of:
    coh
    cta
    coa
    arach
    and any other acronyms you can think of...

    it's like... DOOD... wait a sec... aren't you starting OVER??

    how do you have a fully equipped chars with nice gears already?

    anyways, not a rant, just something cute that i noticed

    "Help, I am new! My ____[insert Hr items] for ______[insert Hr items]"

    haha

    ---------

    p.s. when this topic is exhausted, then go ahead and start a new "i wonder why" ________ [insert own text]

    put anything outrageous, paradoxical (sp), and unusual things that you observed (anything diablo related, storyline, trading, forum, go wild!)

    Re: Ever Wonder Why...

    I wonder why I wandered into vendoring my chars to God. :rolleyes: (Folks, take note: Do not delete your characters if you want to quit playing!)

    As for the Q: Yes, well, they scam or dupe... Or have a friend that's just quit. I could use a CtA, maybe they could give me one? On that note, I always wonder: does anyone ever get anything out of all the "Need Free Eni/Hr/Tal armor PLLLLZZZZ" games one comes across so often? I mean, if they'd never get anything from them, you wouldn't think there would be quite that many of them, right? Well, maybe that is everybody's reasoning...

    Re: Ever Wonder Why...

    Did you not think about the fact that the people who start over are returnees to the game? They obviously either have some stuff stored up to trade for the stuff they want or realize that if they wish to recapture the excitement from the last time they played D2 they need the items that they once had.
    Starting over implies that they've been playing for a while and they're starting to play the game again. A new person to the game obviously will not come onto these forums and demand high end items, as they have no clue what those are and how to properly outfit a character. An ordinary experienced player would want these items to make their new characters the best they could possible be, cutting the middle man out of completely replaying the entire game untwinked and without help.

    Diablo is a very item based game, and those who start over realize that, so they go to the trade forums and start looking to trade for these kinds of items. There's nothing wrong with it, nor is it very weird at all.

    If you have good connections, you could potentially start over very rich.

    I agree to Smitty. Where did this come from? The guy was simply posting his own opinion in the thread.

    Re: Ever Wonder Why...

    Took me a week after starting over(fresh account) to fully gear a blizz mf sorc, and I had two HRS left over.

    Didn't have any friends who were playing at the time to help out either.

    Re: Ever Wonder Why...

    search my past 5 threads in community forum, everytime i seem to get something going, turbulentturtle comes in and ruin it with his political correctness... after a while... it gets really irritating.

    and now, the topic died before it ever got going... and you wonder why i am pissed?

    I don't see how I am ruining your threads when I am merely stating my opinion and contributing to the topic at hand in the threads that you post here. I'm not too sure what you mean by my political correctness either, it seems like you just have a problem with me or something and I'm sorry for that.
    Like I said, I just post about the subject you have given us to discuss and it seems that our views clash somewhat, and that's the reason you seem to have it out for me right now. I have noticed you saying I need to take things a little easier and learn to joke and be more serious, but I've always been a bit confused by what you say there because I'm not too sure what you mean by that.
    I'm really quite a nice fellow when you get to know me.

    Well this thread is completely derailed, and this little thing could have been easily dealt with over PMs or something.

    It really isn't too hard to rack up a few hrs within a week or two if you already know the most efficient ways to get wealth. Within a month of making my key-running sorc (all cheap items), I had several hrs worth of stuff. And that was my first time using an efficient method.

    Re: Ever Wonder Why...

    I am not much of an efficient method guy when it comes to games. I like to wander, and I never managed to get ultra rich. Worse than that, when I become rich, I tend to loose any interest in the game. I give everything away and come back 6 months later poor as Job. The thing is that, as I did it several times already, some people want to return some favors to me, and they help me in many ways which help me becoming rich faster... :laugh:

    Same here : All goes well until I get the end gear. Then I just don't have any goals. This time around it's the first time I actually manage to keep playing after becoming reasonably rich.

    Re: Ever Wonder Why...

    Right now, I have accumulated 10 HR's and a few Ist's, as well as a hefty amount of HR's already invested in gearing. However, I am still far from being bored with the game. For example, I want to build a strafezon in near future, and those cost a bit (considering a good Faith). There are still so many builds I want to try out, but never did. I still haven't geared out my BObarb. I still think an Ist is a considerable amount (I do not bathe in HR's to call Ist "minor thing", like many BNet kiddies do).
