    Noob Question

    So, a friend and I want to play diablo 2. I went out and bought the game. He's going to buy the expansion tomorrow. Several questions:

    1) Whats the difference between Ladder and Non-Ladder play? Do more people play on one vs. the other?

    2) If he starts a guy tonight on regular, then installs the expansion tomorrow, can he upgrade to the "expansion" version with that guy still intact?

    Thanks!

    P.S. We've both played the game before, just never on battlenet.

    1) Ladder has access to more runewords, unique items, and cube recipes.
    2) Yes.

    Both Ladder and NL are so full of dupes that there's really no difference between them anymore in terms of dupes.
