My Newb Life I just recently got Diablo 2, about a month or so back, and I feel like I know quite a bit about the late game. I know what an soj is, a mara's, and all thats tuff, but I still need help. I need help choosing which realm to play on. I want one with not to many people speaking foreign languages (I speak english). I also want one with lots of people to make friends with. I would also like to join a realm that a lot of people on here play in cause you guys all sound really nice. Also, Ladder or non ladder? Ladder seems more competitive, and I like a challenge, and theres the whole thing about other rune words which is awesome. I want the one more people from here play on. Hardcore or softcore? I am pretty sure I want softcore but hardcore sounds like a real challenge. And as I said I like a challenge, but I don't wanna cry tooooo much when my character dies I am looking forward to becoming ana ctive member of this comnunity, and I thank you in advance for replying to my thread if you do.
