    Dont make it personal. Perhaps he, you know, has a job and a girlfriend and doesnt spend all his free time playing D2 and drinking pivo...

    I rather enjoy a 12 month ladder cycle. I'm not so ADD that I want to start over as soon as I finish one char, I like to have a few months to actually play them, not just make them.

    I'm personal because i know BRKO in person :tongue: and if you didn't notice, it was meant jokingly ;)

    Sure, everyone likes different pace and blizz can't satisfy everyone, but from what i noticed majority of the people who wants longer ladder resets are in the ladder just for the items / recipes / whatever else that don't work on NL. I wouldn't mind if they made them avi for NL aswell and make the L more of a competition that it is supposed to be.

    6 months is enought do twink 2 chars in my playing speed and i think it is enough.


    When a char is completed it doesnt matter if it is ladder or non ladder IMO


    btw: Complete, IMO, means: good runewords, some charms and that is it. To have a perfect char it might take years do gatter all needed material.

    tbh, i think that 1 year is best, i know that it takes 3 months for botters to get rich, and for shoppers they are fine on 2nd day, but for legit players who play this game like 10 hours a WEEK all you can do in 6 months is just get mf char + ut smiter and ladder's only, just waste of time.

    I realise I can't speak for everyone, but I prefer ladder because the economy isn't so old and so stale. HR's have worth, as do uniques - particularly during the first half.

    Ofcourse. I love the thrill of finding some rare item early in the ladder.

    Finding Shako in the first week of ladder = OMG WOOT SHAKO?!
    Finding Shako after 3 months of ladder = pffft... Shako... I can get that for Lem...

    If I had an account there, I'd vote for 1 1/2 years. I play slow, I like to run multiple projects at the same time, and I don't have a ton of time to play in the first place. I don't care about the rankings at all, and I'd happily switch to NL if it had all the same features as Ladder so that I had an indefinite amount of time to tweak and mess around.

    Well it all boils down to how much you are hardcore @ the game...

    For me 9 months would be enough, but I think that generally speaking 6 months would be better...
