    That I dont understand why so many people are hardcore enough to bot on a 10 year old game.

    5 years ago there werent even close to as many spam bots as there is now, making games names to advertise and going into games to spam. You could even have a conversation in a public chatroom one time. I never thought sites that sell D2 items would even be worth it or profitable at all but apparently they are. It bewilders me. I came back on 1.13 thinking that nobody would care to have bots for D2...I got a rude awakening.

    I dont know how these sites and bots make any money, seems like theyre selling rare items at prices around $1-3 and theres more bots than real players.

    Their revenue from D2 is declining due to much less people this time around, so their solution rather than move onto a more populated game goes something like "if i increase my spambots x50, i'll get 50x more profits !!!!"

    I'm pretty sure the hi-rune drop rates are higher than just 3x too since i've found several HR's within just a couple of weeks compared to "1" HR in the entire last season.

    You are right in that sense. I have seen bots advertising elite uniques for like less than a dollar...good stuff for 50 cents...If I remember correctly they use to actually charge money....like big mopney for a WF back in .09.

    I guess its funny that there are thousands of mule accounts choking on good items that nobody will ever use.

    Re: Has anyone yet ran into a dupe on ladd nr 6?

    i have not come across dupes.Not enough playtime, and i has not having teh moneyz. But i have a strong feeling that d2 is a perfect marketing place :D

    10 year old game, always been susceptibel to hack/cheats and what not.

    the company that made this game has some pretty big games coming out.


    Hmmmmmmmmm....

    Fair guess would be that the bot-makers are just trying to build a "fan base" :D Also there is a stuffload of money to be made by selling bits and bytes to 10 year olds ( i am not discriminating 10 year olds... only people who act like they are )

    They want the crowd that is willing to pay real money for stuff that stopped being of any concern to anybody a long time ago.

    I have decided i should live with that fact, or stop playing age old multiplayer games :D

    I am pretty sure I had an ist poof on me. This was about two months after the start of the season. Haven't had any problems afterwards.

    What a pitty that so many games are bot-games. Even on this website I encounter tradelists with simply too many high-end uniques which implies to me it must be the result of botrunning.... :-(.

    Just try to imagine how this game would be without bots....

    I wasted so much time looking for High runes earlier this ladder, 100% unsuccessful. And then as soon as I gave up, the first pack of monsters I killed dropped a vex..

    The highest I found in the previous ladders was mal on the way to countess.

    But this ladder.

    Vex on the way to Nilk. Dont tele, kill everything.
    Ohm near Shenk.
    Lo in the pits.

    And in the same game.
    Lo from a carver at Tristram portal and ber at cows.

    Just got to keep killing.

    Re: Has anyone yet ran into a dupe on ladd nr 6?

    Some people seem to be capable of offering an absolutely ridiculous amount of Jah and Ber runes when trading which really makes me suspicious, but perhaps I am simply underestimating how effective 24/7 botting can be.

    Sad to say, botting clientless is extremely lucrative given the increased drop rates

    That's mostly through smart trading and what not.
    Finding one pretty good item (not high runes) can bring in a large yield, and then you just need to sell high and buy low.

    If you bot 24/7 chaos runs you will find around 3 HR a day, well that's according to some people I had talked to.

    I still don't understand what makes having mules full of HRs fun. I gained a decent amount of wealth this ladder and it has gone to the point where it's boring cause I can just trade for almost anything I want... It makes me wanna go to single player.
