    How often does this happen? Why me? A FML moment inside.

    I have been playing Diablo 2 for the last 3 weeks. This is my first time back in about 6 years. I have been MFing on an amazon pretty much non stop in order to create a fury druid (laugh it off now, maybe this was ment to be).

    The center, and most expensive part of this druid build was going to be enigma. I have been spending hours a day doing MF runs in order to afford this piece of the puzzle and just today had gotten to a point where it was finally possible.

    I met a seller in a private game with my amazon and planned on doing a drop transfer of my only high rune, Jah to my druid who was holding my other Pul-Ist level runes.

    I made the drop, logged onto my druid and made a successful pickup.

    We both open trade and I place my runes in the window, he places his mage plate enigma. Not 2 seconds after we had placed our runes in the trade window the game lagged.... We could not speak, we could not enter trade and after 2 minutes when we finally crashed we could not enter or create games for about 10 minutes there after.

    After what seemed like an eternity I could finally create a game. I did, we both entered and initiated a trade. Then my heart sank..... My Jah rune that I worked so hard for these last couple weeks was nowhere to be found. It was not on my amazon, it was not on my druid. Poof up in thin air...

    He said sorry and quickly exited the game, I sat jaw open alt tabbed and came here to rant....

    Whats funny is I payed about $250 on car repairs today without second thought or hesitation but I'm not willing to pay $1 that these pay sites are asking to replace the lost rune. Too legit to quit I guess.

    what your car has going for it, though, is it actually exists :)

    Plus, paying for car repairs doesnt help fund Chinese national cyberterrorists who hack Google for email lists and stuff...

    I'm pretty sure Chinese national cyber-terrorists would have funding from government.... Also, whysohate on China?

    Not hating on China, its just thats where all the goldfarming/RMT/item-selling/etc. operations are all based.

    From a wiki article...

    "According to estimates, around 100,000 people in China are employed as gold farmers, as of December 2005.[citation needed] This represents about 0.4% of all online gamers in China. Chinese gold farmers typically work twelve hour shifts, and sometimes up to eighteen hour shifts. Wages depend heavily on location and the size of the gold farming company. One gold farming operation in Chongqing in central China with 23 gold farmers was reported to pay its employees the equivalent of about 120 U.S. dollars per month, while workers at a larger gold farm in Fuzhou earn the equivalent of about 250 U.S. dollars per month. The rising prevalence of gold farming has led to the creation of gold farm brokerages.

    "Because of reports indicating many gold farmers are located in China they are sometimes referred to as "Chinese farmers" or "China farmers".

    "There are "gold farmers" (sometimes known as Tyrexs) or "gold farms" in other countries as well such as the Philippines, Indonesia and Mexico. However, they do not approach the scope and scale of the Chinese farm industry. China's abundant labor, availability of high-speed Internet connections and cheap computers have made it a powerhouse in collecting virtual assets for online games, fueling the market among the 30 million or so online gamers worldwide."

    I am not sure if it is right to say this, but IMO goldfarming/item hunting themselves are alright. Yes they may ruin some user's experience, but if one thing has market, one will try to earn profit from that, which is quite normal. It is true that most of us don't like item paying sites etc, but if 1% of bnet population likes them, unfortunately they will just fuel those sites up.

    Edit: Oops, little bit of offtopic...

    well, you learned an important lesson: rollback.

    when you trade anything remotely valuable, make sure you already have them saved up (you have previously saved and exited with valuable item beforehand)

    Yeah rollback sucks but so does the NON WORKING bot protection,
    Just lost a good stat uped+um'd viper magi to that.
    Not too much to whine about i guess but it was NL so that makes the uped part a bit more nasty.
    well well sorry about the slightly OT just felt that i had to let off some of the steam i guess.

    You just learned the one great lesson of bnet.

    Own two copies of the game and enable fast user switching.

    Nothing truly valuable ever touches the ground.

    install D2 to 2 different folders... one copy per obviously... then in Windows hit the windows logo key and L ... but you have to have 2 user accounts on your computer as well. You just switch between the 2 user accounts .. a bit time consuming but better than dropping stuff on the ground.

    Don't feel too bad... I lost a PERFECT (except the +def mod) Crown of Ages early ladder to that same rollback issue. If I'd kept it it'd be worthless again (reset) anyway but that's not the point. Right then I almost went SP.

    I've been playing for diff ladders, quit and returned so many times, had Fort, hoto and some mid-high runewords but never owned a enigma.

    In the latest return (which was couple of weeks ago), I work quite hard on my fishy, traded and muled a lot. And got a nice mage plate and Ber ready. According to my runes and items stack, I'm working closely to a Jah. But today, Blizzard tells everyone that there is gonna be a reset SOON.

    Even if I continue to work on the Jah, it won't last long on ladder, and things are going to collapse in the coming two weeks.

    What's the point of reseting so soon but not fixing the bots, bugs, spammers?!

    If there's no updated patch, I may consider going on SP and enjoy the game casually in the next season.....

    It's just that sort of thing that made me go to SP.

    It's much better, imo.
