The Battle.Net forums vs. D2.Net forums

I was on the Arreat Summit website to look up something, and happened to browse by the Battle.Net D2 Forums. All I can say is, wow. Many of the posts seemed to be in the vein of "OMG g13 17aMz" and there was a dearth of useful and interesting information.

I don't want to knock the entire forum, there were some decent posts in there. But the D2.net forums are roughly 50,000,000 times better. Which is to say, more informative, helpful, and frankly, coherent (the SPF in particular).

I would like to extend a hearty "thanks" to the D2.net mods and community for making it the place that it is.

I have never really read those forums, I visited them once in the past, but i just looked at them and they are for bnet(obviously), but this was my favorite quote

OK, this is just a quick question.
A JAH rune placed in a weapon states
that now your attack "Ignore Target's Defense".
Is this true for casters as well?
Or is that only for physical attacks done with that weapon?
I put a JAH rune in a necro wand, hoping that
meant that my skelly's now have that attribute,
but have not noticed a difference. As well as my
bone attacks ... no diff.
Is it just me?
Did I waste a JAH?
Hmmmmmmmm
You can't make that stuff up

Seriously, I get a headache in about 15 mintes over there. And that's when it used to be decent, last time I was in there there was a serious attack on the boards and almost every post was complete spam.

Blizzard probably doesn't even know the amount of loyalty and support that their products have received just because of this fan-based website. In thanks to the people who built it, one can only hope they someday receive a proper thanks (and, maybe, a boatload of cash) from the folks at Bliz.

I think some of the mercs are DII are named after the site admins here, Elly certainly and two others.

i talked to someone from there on bnet once. they have the same opinion of us here. the funny thing is that we are both looking at different places. for them, the trade forums is the big thing, so when they look at our trade forums, they think we're noobs. for us, we look at their discussion forums, and we think they're noobs.

Yeah but the difference is we're right and they're wrong !

EDIT: And we know the meaning of punctuation !

We may be n00bs, but I might be able to count legit items/runez on their trade forum with fingers on my single hand.

@corax: that was funny. I'm afraid it is also true.

That Jah doesn´t have to be wasted. With enough CB gear, that necro can pwn any non-boss monster! Of course, any wand "of Piercing" will do the same. :lol:

The important thing is that both sides feel superiour which makes everybody happy. Would that all things were this perfect. :D

You can get an act 3 merc named Flux too. Incidentally if I ever build a d2 mod, there will be a unique or runeword, or maybe better yet a sword/shield/armor/helm set intended for act 3 mercs called "Dodecahedron"

Errm...which came first, the chicken or the egg?

Aren't the _admins_ named after the _mercs_ in the game, rather than the other way around? That's what would make the most sense to me, anyway...

(The point is to show that the admins may not have gotten any recognition from Blizz after all.)

Thats not true, it's all lies i tell ya!
And the bnet forums are kind of like bnet chat (where it is considered bad manners to use punctuation and everyone must say 'g1b 1t3mz' before being accepted.)
And anyway, the bnet trade forums are a joke. everything is measured in 'how many duped ist's is this worth?' and if it aint uber godly, you'll get shunned.

I recall hearing some of the D1 forum type people and uber fans got mercs named after them for D2. Which makes more sense timeline wise. And a Forum Mod from D1 may be a forum mod for D2 now, something else that makes sense. Ockham's razor.
