    Holy cow.. I just can't believe my eyes..

    It's been almost 6 years since I quit D2.. and I just cannot believe it still has a community like this. Just wondering what's new with the game? Anyone know how long this ladder will last?

    Some other general questions:

    Are the classes still balanced for the most part?

    What is the most played class as far as PvP games are concerned?

    Are there still hammerdin bots running around everywhere?

    SoJs or Runes? What's the current currency?

    How is the community now? Still mostly full of mature players?

    Hell cows or Bhaal runs? :p

    Hammerdins are the only builds not to get nerfed during the patches and can solo 8 player baalruns, there are some nifty lightning soso builds and what not which can be extremely powerful with the right runewords.


    What is the most played class as far as PvP games are concerned?

    Smiter, I think, but it varies


    Are there still hammerdin bots running around everywhere?

    Yup


    SoJs or Runes? What's the current currency?

    Runes, lem+


    How is the community now? Still mostly full of mature players?

    Same as always, ranging from 10 years to 50


    Hell cows or Bhaal runs? :p

    Hell cows for ol' times sake and socketables hunting, baal runs for xp

    Each class still has it's strengths, although there are a few that definately stand out in a number of areas..Hammerdin comes to mind

    What is the most played class as far as PvP games are concerned?

    No clue, I don't PvP much...Windy's still do very well last I heard

    Are there still hammerdin bots running around everywhere?

    Plenty of Baal bots going on every day..just look for xxbaal-#### and you have yourself a baal bot most probably

    SoJs or Runes? What's the current currency?

    Runes are the most common form of currency on Us West SCNL, and I believe they are on the other servers as well.

    How is the community now? Still mostly full of mature players?

    I don't know where you played 6 years ago, but when I played then the majority were immature teenagers :) People on Diabloii are great, people on b.net not so much. You can still find nice, trustworthy people on B.net, but there's a good chance that they aren't randoms, but are part of a forum community such as Diabloii :)

    Hell cows or Baal runs? :p

    Leveling of choice = Bugged rush to Hell chaos, then Chaos runs (bugged rush = having someone with Baal quest and sufficient level (ancients done)do Baal while in party with a low level who cannot due to their level, and is sitting in a5 town. The low level gets the quest done and can go to the next difficulty). Baal runs once the exp starts to slow down. For those with access, Uber leeching is the fastest method of getting to level 92. A simple google will net you guides, etc on what Ubering is.

    [I'm still dreaming of a one day.. Diablo 3.. where my wife will realize what addiction really means for a gamer.]

    Re: Holy cow.. I just can't believe my eyes..

    Go look at the community forums sticky for guides about uber tristram.

    Blizzard did give up on diablo 2, the ladder season before this one went for 2 years before they remembered to reset it.

    Don't count on diablo 3 anytime soon, the creators already left so diablo 3 won't be the same as d2, it will be more like WoW.

    No one knows when the ladder is going to restart, it is generally bad taste to ask this since so many topics are made asking but seeing as how this isn't a blizzard forum we have no clue, and I really doubt blizzard does. They just reset it when they get around to it.

    Thats whats soo great about it.

    You can pick it up and have full high-end runewords after two weeks of casual play... as opposed to MMOs where you can spend years endlessly grinding.. only to have the next patch render your hard-earned gear useless.
