    Theory about DiabloClone

    Ok here's My DiabloClone Theory
    by Mafia-CUD


    KNOWN: DC spawns in hell games w/ the same server IP number after a certain number of sojs have been sold. (So when xxx number of sojs are sold on server 73... DC then spawns in all hell games hosted on that server) When i say the number of Sojs sold, im talking about the number sold since he LAST SPAWNED on THAT server. Thus i am not referring to the message that lists in gold 1567 SOJS SOLD TO VENDORS. Rather i mean the number sold in that message minus the number sold when he last spawned on THAT server.

    KNOWN: the number of sojs sold in order to spawn DC is usually around 100 - 200

    I THINK: one server can host about 200+ games (some1 plz verify this for me)

    THEORY: The number of SOJ's sold has to match the number of games currently hosted on that server(all games, not just hell games). Most servers will usually host at least 100 games but are limited to about 200 games - this matches the range of sojs sold for DC to spawn.

    PHENOMENON EXPLAINED BY THEORY:
    DC does not always seem to spawn RIGHT when the final SOJ is sold .... sometimes the final one is sold.... then a couple minutes pass... then DC spawns. The reason this would happen is that, for instance, if 150 sojs were sold but the server was currently hosting 152 games, then later 2 people exited their games and no new games were created... the number of SOJ's sold (150) would now equal the number of games (152 games minus 2 games=150)

    BLIZZARD'S MOTIVATION:
    In general it has been excepted that DiabloClone is Blizzards method of getting rid of duped soj's and redistributing this wealth in the form of annihilus charms to whomever can kill DC. By determining that the number soj's sold matches the number of potential annhilius charms in a 1 to 1 ratio, one is led to believe that this theory only further emphasizes that DC is a system of redistributing wealth.



    Lemme know what u guys think of this theory.... thx for reading :wave:

    Actually, The D Clone is just a figment of our imagination and we are all still inside The Matrix trying to figure out if there really is a spoon or not.

    I think Diablo Clone is a way of revivng the soj economy. I do agree that the Dc is way toi get rid of duped sojs. but too bad the annihilus small charm promotes scamming. :(

    Um... i could be wrong but i think Usufruct was just joking w/ you Kralgar and not seriously flaming you. Your apology is welcome and accepted.


    Sinful Slave's grassy nole is also welcome and accepted :yep: j/k

    Relax man. Usufruct was only being humorous.
    We all do that on occasion. So you want to wish the worst on us all ? Big Deal.

    If you think of these forums and us that way, you can always post elsewhere.

    I don't see how this is redistributing "wealth" much, since mostly the people who have sojs to sell are the ones getting together in the "spawning" server to sell them, and getting the charm.
    And the charm can't be traded either.

    Woah now, take a chill pill karate kid. I was in fact joking, and in actuality I didn't even see your original post. Even if I weren't joking, it hardly would justify you 'wish[ing] the worst on everyone', don't you think?

    Try not to go psycho in the future.

    Edit: Just read your reply, punch your friend again for me :)
