    too many of other animations cause lag as well.

    Lots of meteors + Frozen orb is one.

    Barb WW desynch anyone?


    Tell them to get a better comp!

    It's like survival of the fittest. Summon as much as you can. Eventually the stupid ones will leave or timeout. Then unsummon down to what is needed :winner:


    ACTUAL TIP: Only keep skeletons with big parties. Learn to feel out whether or not the party really need 10 mages on top of 10 warriors or more meat walls with revived. If you are in hell with some weak casters and puny melee chars, then you will want a nice army, but if you are hanging with 2 BotD Pallies, A Hammerdin, a Wind druid, and a cold Sorc... well, keep it simple, keep it safe!

    build up an army, get to a WP, run to town, hostile, kill them all or die trying

    how lagged can they be if they manage to win?

    Ash, 3 words for that post:

    Commando Mancer Style

    Yep, I have done that before. Taken out an entire game a few times with him. They are like "oh no, big bad summoner going" , Annoying newb was slain by Commando_Mancer, "I WAS TYPING!", "NUB", "NUB", Annoying newb has left the game. His pride has weakened.

    I agree, tell em to get a better computer. Like try a Pentium I (LOL) or tell em to go a different game, then squelch them and play on

    Where did you get those requirments? I'm sure it evolved with patches. I have a P3 800eb, 512 ram, radeon 7500 with DSL and when I kill shenk, my fps drop to 0 most of the times... For a 2D game in 800x600, I'm not impressed. I mean I play online COD (a 3D game) at the same resolution with better results...

    That being said, it's true that necro are not the only laggers. My prefered answer: "Fill a complain to Blizzard". I mean I play my character just like them and if it makes the game laggy it's not my fault. But I really feel bnet is the source fo the problem. We always had lag problems and will always have. :rant:

    AMD Athlon XP 2800, 1024 mb ram, GeForce 4 TI 4800 SE and DSL. My frame rate drops to zero each and every time I kill Shenk. Doesn't matter if it is SP or Online!

    Welcome to private games.... and I think you know why...

    skellies will not lag games, revives can.

    Poisoners don't need skellies or minions unless they want them.

    I've played in games with 3 summoners together over 80 total minions and no lag. AND I"M ON DIALUP.....

    So squelch or have fun in private games.

    You're always welcome with the OT crowd.

    I tell them what a n00b I am. They say:

    "OMFG I hate necros that use summons"

    "LOL USING TRANG SET TOO"

    I say:

    "OMG, I AM A NOOB!"

    "CHRIST, I hate summoners. Geez"

    "I am such a nOOb I should be playing a pally, sorc, or zon, wtf is wrong with me."

    "I absolutely HATE people who play necros"

    "OMFG OMFG I AM SO A NOOB!"

    "OMFG, I HATE NOOBS!"

    ...they shutup quick and I get a good chuckle.

    actually happened in about those exact words btw.

    wow, u got a true gaming system :thumbsup:

    anyways, that is strange, my younger brother's computer is 1800 amd, 512, radeon 8500 and cable and somehow it doesnt lag. Hrmm.

    As for the requirements,i got them from the D2 page on blizzard.com, I do agree that the requirements probably of changed with the patches, however, i don't think that it would change significantly.

    PS: I hate frame rate drops in Counter Strike, talk about an old game that most of the best computers today can't even achieve a constant 100fps. :rant:

    My old computer has no trouble with Shenk, but tons of trouble with summons (even in single player)...

    Shenk = little lag

    Baal and Diablo = Standing there one frame, on the ground 5 sec later.

    My Router says, NO I HATE YOU NO SC GAMES FOR YOU! Due to latency... :scratch: And yet I play on D2 all the time... and rarely lag.

    I hate comps

    The problem is not Shenk. The problem is when he dies. All the video animations makes teh games lag like hell.
