    Greetings! - the intro post

    Per the guidelines, this is the intro post. As you might guess, my name's Todd and I play Diablo 2 (waves). I've been playing on and off (mostly on) since the day D2C was released - the dinosaurs among you might just remember me as a prominent poster on the paladin forum during the game's first few months. Since then I've played everything numerous times, mostly in purist single-player - no-twink, no-mule, full-clear. Occasionally, I've played on USEast since the Expansion.

    Like most of you (I'd guess), I'm here because of general disappointment with the Realms. Purist single-player has its charms and is a great challenge. But with the changes in 1.10, I find it awfully limiting for character choices. My lvl75 Fanaticism Zealot is struggling terribly in Act 1 Hell for lack of decent gear - while he's certainly gotten some good drops, very little is relevant to the build. So I start new ladder chars online, hoping for more opportunity, but I mostly just see a lot of children and duped items, especially the runes to which I had especially looked forward. The children are escapable - playing with AB or just choosing not to play with the obviously anti-social adolescents takes care of that. (No offense, teens/pre-teens - I know many of you are not evil.) But the trading economy isn't escapable, at least not without a network of trusted people much larger than what I have.

    So I'm here. Looking forward to talking with you, and seeing you in some games.

    Cheers!
    Todd

    Welcome to the SPF :)

    Here we have everything the realms have except for those problematic things that you mentioned and the Annihilus charm along with the D clone. On top of that we have ATMA too and numerous other improvements over bnet realms :D

    Hi, Todd! There is a pretty good group here. When it comes to
    gear, you may want to look to the give away thread for some
    help. There are also some good places to MF in Hell Act I (The Pit,
    Mausoleum and Crypt come to mind). Enjoy your stay!

    Welcome here!
    I felt the same as you as I joined two weeks ago. And haven't regretted it for a single second :)

    Welcome to the SPF. No question the maturity level, regardless of age, is vastly different here than in the realms. This is a great place to be. :thumbsup:

    Such a friendly forum! Thanks for all the kind replies.

    One other thing I forgot to mention... among other things, I'm a long-time Linux user. D2 runs fine under WineX, both for BNet and TCP/IP games, but are there any known Linux issues for the other SPF programs like ATMA? A brief test suggests that ATMA works better under Crossover Office than under WineX (fixes some minor rendering problems). I can view items and export them, but not having any experience with the program, I'm not sure if I'm missing out on anything. Any other tips or tricks I should know?
