    Its a command that simulates 8 players in your game... so basicly you get expirience and item drops like there were 8 players in your game (with each new player in your game the monsters increase in their Hitpoints, damage and thus exp and they drop better items)
    you use it when in come hitting enter, and typ /players8
    off course you can chance the 8 to 1,2,3,4,5,6,7, or 8... but remeber, on players8 monsters are a lot harder to kill then on players1

    hope it helps

    It's a command you can enter which sets the difficulty (also gives more experience) of the game as if there were 8 players playing multiplayer ( :scratch: players playing multiplayer? There's got to be a better way to put that). You can enter any number up to 8. Just hit the enter key and type:

    /players 8

    EDIT: D'oh! Beaten to it

    a small correction:
    /players 8 does cause the monsters to give you "better" drops, it just decreases the chance of 'no drop' beng selected, thus causing more drops, and by virtue of more drops, the odds of more magic/rare/set/unique items increases.

    on /players 8, monsters have 450% the hit points they do normally, thus they are 4 1/2 times harder to kill, but give 4 1/2 times the XP as normal.

    I thought it was 800% hp for 8 players (each player adding 100% life) but only 450% exp.

    Guess what? I heard +50% hp for each player and +33% experience. And no, I never verified it ;)

    The 1.09 numbers are somewhere on dii.net, they gave less exp and had more HP.

    In 1.10 it's +50% exp and HP for each extra player, so 450% of each at /p8.

    In 1.09 it was 100% to hp per player and 50% to exp.

    In 1.10 as stated by Shade and others it is 50% to both.

    Due to the increase in difficulty during the version upgrade Blizzard must have decided that 100% to hp would be too great.
