    All of your ladder characters and items will switch to Non-ladder, and a brand new ladder season starts. Everyone can then make new characters starting from level 1 and the race to 99 begins!

    The point of this is so that people can once again experience Diablo II like when it first came out. No godly items or high-level chars, and teamwork is actually needed.

    In one of the server rooms; a large, cold ,clinical and well ventilated and sound insulated room deep in the bowels of the Blizzard Corporation building,a young brave technican(chosen by lots) is seated and wired to a huge array of diablo2 servers.


    He is a young fit man and gets paid a large bonus not to press the big red ladder reset button that lies just within reach of his right hand but he is physically restrained in his chair and the wires inflict intermittent electrical pain.


    The pain inflicted is moderated by the simple equation(for D2)

    Volts = AP/(AP-PC+1) x HR/(HR-DHR+1) x 110

    Where

    AP=Actual players
    PC=Players cheating
    HR=High runes in existence in game
    DHR=Duped high runes

    notes

    The last reset occured over a school holiday during a mass duping session(the technician was hospitalized) and before the first patch the 110 was originally SV ( supply voltage) but cheating in Europe nearly killed a guy.

    Rumour has it the current incumbent was heard crying "oh the pain! Oh The Pain!" repeatedly this last bank holiday Monday but has since quietened down again. :cool:

    A more important question to ask is why do people pay real money for virtual items. If this did not happen, dupes would not exist.
