    I keep seeing SP MF strategies that involve setting to 8 Players. How do you do this? And can you do it in ladder without having to bring other players into the game?

    you type "/players 8"

    Setting to this number will make the monsters in the game harder but you will be rewarded with more/better drops and more experience.

    This only works for single player, not on bnet.

    o ya I forgot to mention that you can set the number anywhere between 1 and 8 as well in case players8 gets too difficult.

    More drops, but not better. Just less "missing" drops.

    /players x makes the SP game exactly like there were x players in a Bnet game, not partied with eachother. Monsters have (x+1)/2 times as many hit points and are worth the same amount times as much exp.
