    The people in this game confuse me..

    I hosted a public lld game with my lvl 18 zealer a little earlier, and no real lld's join so it was kind of unfair for me. Then this level 30 barb joins and hostiles me, and dies in one zeal. He get's pissed, leaves and comes back with a level 67 sorc. I killed him once with a charge, then after that he just teleports around killing me with thunder storm (i've got almost no resistances). Naked killing me every time i step out, calling me names..

    So I rejoin with my pvm javazon, and proceed to kick his a** and keep him away from his body. Now I go from being all these names, to being a "hacker", and that lasts for a few minutes.

    Then, once he realized his friend won't help him kill me (i told him why i was killing him lol) he starts acting like my friend and asking me if i could baal run him for a few levels :S This was the most confusing run in I think i've ever had with someone lol.. I hate public games sometimes.

    Likewise. people are just silly sometimes.

    This is like old burizazon's killing insanely geared smiters.

    This is what public realm D2 is all about. That kind of style/attitude was really the same on open bnet too. I played open for like 4 years, and left forever seeking greener pastures on the realms for a better experience, for another 4yrs. The PvM co-op is better, but really people suck everywhere you go.

    Some folks are attracted to the chaos of it all, and love cheap thrills. Just shows what happens in a world we're there aren't any real consequences for the actions taken. I admit messing with people can be fun. I just wonder if people actually realize how idiotic they sound, like in your example lol.

    Get used to it.

    Having played on closed BNET since D2 was released I had my fair share of idiots, scammers, weirdos, ethugs, keyboard warriors, hackers etc.

    Not everyone is sugar spice and everything nice :rolleyes:

    What I never get is people who join "XXX 4 YYY" games I have open (where XXX is an item with known stats like a unique, set, 7MFSC, 20Lifer, etc.), when I'm trying to sell a certain item, and then proceed to do one of several dumb things:

    -Just say "Show", when they have no intention to trade and just want to window shop. I guess not everyone's heard of Arreat Summit, but wouldnt your first instinct be to Google it if you dont know what it is?
    -Ask you to trade, then instead of posting the price you've asked, put a collection of
    junky low set items not even close to the value you were looking for, and without even first saying "I dont have YYY, how about ZZZ?"
    -Act like they're going to trade, then once you open the trade window and put the item in, they go "nn" and quit. This is especially frustrating with items like Guillaumes that are ALL EXACTLY THE SAME!!

    I just dont understand why people are so willing to waste both my time and their own...I always ask to make sure they both want the item and have the price before I open a portal back to town...

    I'm a proponent of the theory that its not just a place to be outrageous. You find out who people really are on the internet. Really.

    Obviously you don't KNOW anyone on the net. But, anyone that's a borderline sociopath on the internet, you DON'T want dating your daughter. Because that's part of who they are. Other people don't matter to them.

    That's real. And all of you battlenet jerks out there, everyone that's ever stolen an account, scammed with a fake enigma, that SAYS something about who you are. Always.

    "no need", as far as I can tell from context. Its an abbreviation they use because they cant be bothered to type out a sentence fragment.

    This is a pet hate of mine. I was absolutely appalled when people started abbreviating "Enigma". What do they abbreviate it to? "Nigma". Jesus. Christ. =/

    I never think of changing my level range on games until I'm already in them, then it floats out of my mind until some other time it's to late to remember :)

    Re: The people in this game confuse me..

    i thought the abbreviation for enigma was eni but it could just be me tbh :whistling:

    Anyways it is not just this game its all the internet games i have played so far and it seems to get worse by the minute! (even on these forums!)

    i totally agree with what Zarni said you dont want anyone acting like a e-peen jerk to date your daughter... (not that i have one but still)

    Finding normal people seems to become as rare as finding a zod...

    Regards,
    BKC

    word for word, this has happened to me before. once you get a few easy kills of high level characters with your LLD, you'll get bored and start restricting the level or build an "enforcer" that easily and humiliatingly kills high levels. good for this are level 49 characters as you have access to facets.

    Re: The people in this game confuse me..

    speaking of judging someone's character by how they act on the internet.. there was someone on the us east trade forums who is definatly being added to the "Never going to date my (future) daughter List". Scammed a boatload of High runes from one of the most active trader's there, and boasted about how he took over 100 hr's from this forum doing absolutely nothing :/ Congratulations, you are going to succeed at life.

    Sometimes I get really annoyed by all the spam clogging up the screen. Then I remember that I play Single Player, and just stop typing.
