Problems/Suggestions for the world of Diablo 2 LoD I've been playing Diablo 2 on and off (and on and offline) for years now, but I can't imagine how things have ever been worse for players than they are now. Hello. I am not afraid to voice my opinion, which is, no doubt, shared by frustrated players around the world. What's my problem? Here it is. Whether it be online or single player, is no longer fun. Firstly, what is the point of Hell difficulty? I can't do it. I don't see how anyone can without cheating, and I sympathize with the people that do cheat. The probability of finding runes I want for items to make runewords I want, or even just get some decent equipment is beyond ridiculous - it's lunacy. I don't want to spend the rest of my waking life trying to get my character's name on some ladder that probably only indicates who is the most idiotic in the world. It's lost the fun. I only play it when I'm bored now, as there apparently isn't any helpful souls to get just one of my charaters up to Pindle so that I can get items for my chars. This is ridiculously convoluted anyway, because who, in their right mind, chooses one creature in the game to have the chance at dropping everything, when it's so much more USEFUL to have said items by the time one STARTS Hell Difficulty. What the hell chance has anyone got of finishing a legit game on the net? Once finished, does anyone bother helping others? Just how many legit characters have done the secret hell quests? How many of those people had help getting a high lvl char? I'm confused...isn't co-op play meant to be co-operative? Until some patch is released to make hell a bit more "possible", I refuse to interact with it. My brother bowed out ages ago for similar reasons. If there's ever a Diablo 3, I won't buy it. The game has become a joke - a complete and utter joke. I have other things to do in my life, like getting a life. I just felt I had to pass on some small wisdom. I just wanted to be heard. Ladder-only stuff can go to the scrap pile. Hell super-quests can get thrown in the bin. They. Are. Full. Of. ...Something Brown, like this page. Maybe I should do what my brother does, and play Neverwinter Nights, where at least players have to stay "in-character" and "role-play" their way through the game. It'll be interesting to see what people say about this - but I don't want to hear nonsense about my "method of play" or "strategy" being wrong, or "not knowing how to play the game". I'm a half-decent player - no, I'm sure the enemies are being made too impossible. Thank you for taking the time to listen to my bletherings, maybe now someone will realise this game is far from perfect. But I'm sure someone will go on the (aggressive) defence.
