    I haven't played classic for a long time, but I believe that you can still play classic on b.net (only with other classic players). You won't get any of the expanison items or improvments and you won't get to go to act 5. With the expansion pack being less then $20 in some places, I'd highly suggest getting it. It enhances the experience immensly. Welcome back!

    Yes, I'm quite sure you can make your classic chars expansion chars (99%)
    But I have no idea if Classic has a Ladder.
    And you'll probably find very few people who still play Classic, 1/20 is my guess (looking at the number of Classic people in the channel)

    IIRC 1.10 was for D2E only, though there were some bug fixes for D2C. So I dont think D2C has a ladder. When you upgrade Classic chars to expansion you'll get Non-Ladder chars. (Well I hope they get Non-ladder, cause if they are ladder Ill go SOJ-hunting in classig games en then upgrade to expansion)
    FYI You can still play classic games when you have expansion installed

    Classic certainly has ladder and when transfered to expansion they seem to be still ladder chars. Just tried it.

    keep in mind tat some items in classic are not tat good in expansion, so if u are happy with ur classic chars, u should keep them in classic. because in expansion, there are way more items.
