    I am still around

    Hello to all the new members and to all the old members who remember me. I was surprised I was still mentioned in some of the posts I read. I have posted parts of this in several threads but decided to put it all together here.

    I still do play 1.09 and host games at least a few times a week. During the week they are usually around 8pm EST (GMT -5). Many times there is a Saturday marathon session around 1 pm EST. We have had cow games with full house on a few occasions and many times have around 6 players and run as high as players 64. If any of you are interested in 1.09 still let me know by PM or email me at [email protected]

    If you have never done a MP game you should try them whatever version you play. Dial-up is usually fine for joining just not hosting.

    Some recent and/or common attendess for my MP games are:
    Icebird
    Ryondaahl
    Jbbto
    Phylogen
    Trenshadow
    King's Spectre
    Terrier
    Supermatt
    Warbandit
    NSZ

    If anyone is interested some of my old characters are still slaying the minions of Hell in 1.09:

    Merla FO/FW/Nova 99
    Gimli Berserker/WW Barb 92
    Sir Galahad Fanatic/Zealot 94
    Bonecrusher Iron barb 92
    Artemis Bowazon 80
    Abuse of a Corpse Artillery Necro 66

    Currently Jbbto, Phylogen and I are doing a MP game with Necros for Phylogen and I and Jbbto with a LF zon. We have been ruling Hell so far at players 12.

    I hope you are all well and enjyoing your games of whatever type still. If I missed something ask.

    Alterego is a good guy and I'm sure he is taking good care of this place.

    *Edit* Sorry this got a little long. :)

    I remember you and merla. A cow killing queen that merla. :lol:

    Glad to see you still are lurking around. I'll probably start joining you in those cow games soon.

    There are a few others who I'm sure remember you as well.
    For instance you could look here , specifically post #28.

    Darn good to see you around again. :clap:

    Hey there :)

    I never played in your 1.09 games but from what I've read they sure sound fun. Wish you'll move on to 1.10 someday, hopefully I'll be back gaming D2 then :D

    Actually I read that. Thanks! :) Sad to see nightfish is going too.


    I did forget one thing. I have tried 1.10 and just don't like it. I have attempted to play and MF several times now but it is not for me.

    It's good to see your still playing Abuse of a Corpse after he parted ways with the Grateful Dead :)

    We're currently in Act 5 NM and are going to play again tonight.

    Yeah he just recently started up again. We are in Act 2 Hell and he is doing well. Level 31 CE and 32 Golem Mastery and about everything else a point in with lots of +skill stuff. :)

    Glad to see your group is still moving on too.

    Welcome back! I remember you playing 1.09. I never returned once I got 1.10. Hardly remember what it was like playing that version.

    Anyways, welcome back. I think there was a person asking for 1.09 last week, or maybe it was today :uhhuh: can't remember. But people still do ask if anyone is hosting a 1.09 game once in a while. Now we have somewhere to point them!

    Nice to see a familiar face, D2Addict :wave:
    I don't know if anyone here still remembers me - it'll be harder without my old cool Eva Unit 01 avatar i'm sure, lol. Anyhaps, intros for those who don't: I'm kronos, i was a reg here perhaps 6-8 months back. At the time we were still in that "omg 1.10 STILL isn't out yet!!" phase, whilst constantly being tantalised by false promises that it was only a week or two away. I stopped playing at that point - partly because of boredom, partly because i wanted to wait for 1.10 before i got into serious char development and MFing. Well, 1.10 is out now :evil: so i decided to make a comeback. <insert heaven-forbid groans here>

    Nice to see you all again. Btw, is it just me, or is Normal actually difficult now? My experiment with a Holy Freeze/Zeal Paladin found out the hard way just how much defense/resists matter now, and how bad a skill Zeal is in Act 2's tombs where Steel Scarabs lurk behind every door...

    Hey D2A, nice to see you :wave: I still haven't gotten around to MPing since my connection is still the suxxor :lol:

    And this place actually takes good care of itself. I'm just around for the maintenance duties.

    And a shout out to you to NSZ & Kronos, long time no see :wave:

    Players 64?!? Do you play a mod or is that normal. I thought players 8 was the highest difficulty D2 supported.

    In 1.09b you can go that high. I don't recall if that's the highest or not... With a LF zon, you don't notice the difference between players 8 and players 64 cows :D

    The 1.009b patch of LoD allowed up to players64. The 1.09d patch scaled it back to players8 (which is the max in the 1.10 as well).

    You don't get a whole lot of extra experience, but when we have a large group, players8 doesn't offer much of a challenge. Hence players16, or players32, or players64 when we have a really large group.

    Reminds me of my first experience with 1.10. Archers were my biggest problem when I started back; however, that was nothing compared to when I faced Druiel with my level 24 Conc Barb and excaimed something along the lines of, "What the HELL," becuase I actually died. Needless to say, I was really shocked when I actually did make it to Hell.

    EDIT: One of my college profs suggested that I needed to proof read more, and one day I'm actually going to take him up on that advice.

    Big Howdy to you D2A :thumbsup:

    I really appreciated you helping me Pat my Pally last month or so.
    havent done much except MF'ing with him - getting bored with that.

    just this weekend started a Fishymancer in 1.10 - dont know if I
    like this patch or not as yet, but if this doesnt catch me, I may
    (curses, no) put it aside for a while and go into a whole
    different genre (ie SimCity 4 - dont laugh everyone)

    SO...may have to join up with your 1.09 MP groups to milk more fun out of
    this game,

    where do you post the IP address for these MP's? in the MP thread? if not, please send me info at [email protected]

    thanks
