What kind of D2 (and D3) gamer are you? I will admit, I haven't played D2 since early 2004. But before then, I was quite active on old forums/marketplace (had 2nd highest trader rating - neophyte420 if anyone remembers that far back). In past, what attracted me to D2 was 3 things: 1. items/trading economy 2. variability (mf, pvp, trading, new builts) 3. how the game could run on your system for 6 hrs and still respond. While I had several amazon/barbarians with high mf %, I always believed that in order to get the best items, you had to trade for them. That made me play the game, to find items to trade for other items. For me, it was the most important part and why I played for 4 years. After, I retired and left all of it to my good friend. What kind of D2/D3 game are you/will be? What drives you to play a game for long time?
