    I was wondering about the same thing. Found this tread on page 3, maybe someone can help us here. I know there are people working on a DClone faq, but maybe a quick reply here? How to find the hot server and how to get connected to it....? I know how to find my server ip.

    That really isn't much of a help. Maybe links to boards if anyone know them or some tips.

    Wasn't someone working on a DC faq?

    They are really not that hard to find. Google is your friend. But be careful, most sites that allow ip posts are hack sites, so don't go downloading a trojan or anything.

    EDIT: Even if you know the hot server it is still really freaking hard to get into a game on that server. People who think knowing a hot ip is the ticket to a free anni are terribly mistaken.

    So the ticket to an anni is?

    And yeah, google is cool and all, but running around on all these little private forums with god knows what running isn't really what I'd like...why do you think I come here?

    Personally I'd rather not have the forums clogged up with all sorts of ".118 is HOT now SELL SELL SELL" posts. It would be so annoying.

    Sell sell sell posts are already in the trade forum. Why not just make a "DC forum" here...if those sites really are so bad that you can't link to them, why not make a little something for those who stay away from those sites and stay here instead.

    The only arguments I can think of against that are the exploitive nature of finding a hot server, and the moderating nightmare that a hot server forum would be.

    PM elly or gaile and ask/recommend this idea perhaps. You never know.

    The only reason that the IP posting forum cannot be linked to here is because of the competitive nature of fan-sites. The administrators here have sunk alot of time and money into the upkeep of diabloii.net and do not want to provide free advertising to other fan sites -- completely reasonable IMO.

    To be 100% honest with you, the IP forum site is not very good. Thread starters have this annoying habit of creating a .172 HOT SELL NOW PLZ thread and then forget to provide a selling game for players or update when DC walks. Thus, these threads sometimes end up being three pages of spam with people posting things like: "Has he walked yet?" or "Is there a selling game?".

    The site also endorses the use of auto IP-finding bots. :grrr:

    Therefore, I don't endorse the use of the site, nor will I refer to it in any way in my DC guide. IRC, on the other hand, is an outstanding DClone hunting tool and Blizzard has even stickied IRC server/channel information in the BNet Diablo 2 General Forums. I strongly recommend checking it out.

    I just want to add that finding the right server is only .0001% of the battle. Killing DC is anoth .999% of the battle. The most frustrating thing (99% of the work) is getting a game on the right server.
