    Have you tested this?!

    Hi

    When I don't have something to do sometimes and are away from my computer I have tested to play diablo...how? Well the human mind is an excellent place to play, not as fun as on the computer but still rather fun, mostly cause it's so #¤%"¤ stupid hehe.

    So have you ever tested to play Diablo in your mind? Thats how I did when I tested my Wind-Druid-Guide, with my imagination ^^, it's sick I know but mostly I just laugh at it :p

    Just tried it with my Blizzballer vs. Pindle.

    He dropped my 5 Bers and the TC 87's I'm missing. That was cool.

    I think I know what you're getting at Bassen. When I'm bored and on the way to work in the morning, I sometimes try to think as if I'm a character I'm working on... what it would be like to have the responsibility.. hehe. I do this a lot, not just with D2, but with any characters from stories I'm writing or thinking of writing.

    A bit like roleplaying I guess but also it helps to try and visualise when writing D2 stories (which I'd like to do at some point instead of just thinking about it).

    Your post explains a bit why your pat/mat writeup threads are so vivid and interesting! :wink:

    hmm actually I think you are right...when I write my stories I think at the character, and make it like a roleplaying movie in my head ^^ kinda fun if you are a fantasy-freak like me ^^

    thx =) happy you like em, was a while tho since I finnsihed a character, my last, a amazon took a bit longer than I planned since I had the HF-rush to. But I plan to finnish her at the end of next week ^^

    I often plan out new builds/rigs whilst I'm stuck on a boring machine at work. Only works if the job is so monotonous that you are actually able to go somewhere else in your mind, so it's a double edged sword. As for actually playing a character, no not really.

    Hmmm... sounds fishy... You'd better PM Thyiad or I before participating in any MP, trades, or giveaways in your head. :laugh:


    I do a lot of build-planning mentally, and sometimes that may include a couple of "if this build faces bosspackX with ModY and ModZ, how do I tackle that?"... But, not really "playing" the game.

    Play the game in mind? That's crazy. I do planning in my mind sometimes. However, I couldn't do it at work, my work requires me to think, and concentrate.

    The most I do is plan the characters in my head.
    Like how to achieve full resist, for example, with this set of constraint gears that I'm going to use. Etc.

    But never "played" the game in my head.
    That, I think, is closely bordering D.I.D.. :wink3:

    I also plan characters in my head while I'm not playing. When I was playing the game pretty much full-time a couple of years ago I had a few crazy dreams where I was cracking skulls with a massive axe as a barb in a first-person view. They were pretty awesome :cool:

    I believe most of us had D2 related dreams. The coolest one is some years ago, I dream to find a ZOD in my bedroom, and I picked it up in my own hand. Now beat that dream (and I'm not making it up).

    I was thinking more of this. :laugh:

    Being creatively minded is a good thing as long as you don't have those periods of memory loss where you forget who you really are!

    Yeah, I occasionally have these weird moments where I imagine I'm some guy sitting in front of a computer, and not really out there annihilating demons and undead. Then it passes. :)

    My head's too old, it needs more RAM.

    This mindgame diablo sounds like the reverse of what I once did.
    I thought I went into this realm called IRL... after a while I realised that I was only AFK.

    The closest I've come is dreaming of playing a game. It particularly happened a lot with WoW, after a late night of waaayy too much farming, usually. I can think of a few times, even, when I dreamt doing something, and it seemed so real that I was shocked to discover that whatever it was that I had accomplished in my dream, was not actually accomplished in reality.
