How bad was D2 when it came out? I was interested in Sacred, which has the same style of play as D2 and developed by some ex-Blizz employees. But after looking at gthe horror stories from players particularly multi-player I decided to wait and see if it improves. Which brings me to the question: how was D2 when relased? I got it 1 year after thew releaswe (and never played D1), and obviously it was already very refined, stable multi-player, etc. But how was in the first days after its release?
