I'm a long time browser of these forums and figured it was about time I started actively participating.
I've been a long time Blizz fan, Starcraft is basically what started my interests in PC gaming. After that i played D1 until D2C and eventually D2X took over. Unfortunately for me all my experience was single player due to living in an area with poor internet connections. During college I spent a few years in the WoW verse, but eventually tired of it and am now patiently waiting for SC2 and D3...however long that may be.
Anyways just wanted to start posting and figured this would be the appropriate spot for my first post. Looking forward to discussing and eventually playing some D3 with you all!
hello, i have been playing for 6 years, and have been lurking these forums for nearly 2, i decided to join because i have a decent ww claw, that i cant seem to find offers on, ill be making a post for it soon in US east SCL, i am also going to gtpretty involved in these forums
I've been gaming since Atari 2600 was new and hot, my first comp was a Commadore 64. I've always been into FPS games and RPGs. Then one day a co-worker of mine introduced me to D2. I've been an addict off and on ever since! I'll occasionally burn out and go play other games for awhile (Fallout 3, Crysis, Oblivion, Call of Duty 4, Left 4 Dead, being recent examples), but I always come back.
I started out playing on BNET, since that's where my coworker friends were. Eventually I discovered the SPF here, and I really liked the more realistic, mature culture... People who can appreciate a nice rare weapon, or see the potential in a godly blue item as opposed to BNET "ZOMG if ur not have nigma on ur gearz ur not can live in HELL." I rarely venture onto BNET anymore, I spend most of my time playing SP.
Ever since D3 was announced I have been foaming at the mouth in anticipation!
Good to see some of the <cough> older community still active around the place. I guess this is where I come in....
Started gaming with a Tunix console (cartridge based) which was a cheap Atari 2600 pretender. Next was a Commodore VIC-20 followed by a C=64, an Amiga 500, Amiga 2000 w/68040 then finally moved on to the "dark side" of the PC world. Us Amigans were rabidly anti-PC :-)
This was around the time when Doom had been around for a bit and I was discovering the joys of Quake and the like. A friend and I then stumbled across this demo of Diablo and filled our pants when the Butcher made an appearance. We were hooked! When we got hold of the full retail game we were known to move into my basement for days at a time playing on LAN. I can't remember exact details but getting two PCs running windows 98 to talk to each other over LAN was an exercise in frustration and liberal quantities of swearing My first on line excursion introduced me to the joys of PK-ing and when the hacks became rampant I abandoned that activity.
The Hellfire expansion was bought without question but proved to be irritating and ultimately disappointing. We then got involved in the beta testing of D2 which was an exciting time. D2X followed. Years went by. SP, LAN, BNet, HC Ladder/Non-Ladder, the usual addicts litany. I broke the habit eventually but now find myself playing LAN with my 8 year old quite regularly with the Requiem of Sorrow mod and still having fun.
I confess to having been sidetracked by HG:L as an exercise in seeing what the old Diablo team were up to. Pity about the end result of that one. Too ambitious perhaps. I find it remarkable that a game of this vintage can still interest me and the announcement of D3 has renewed my interest. Dii.net was always the best trough to get my water so it's nice to be back
Hi. I live in my parent's basement. They sometimes throw me scraps of food...I'm a virgin..of course and I like to tell people how to act across forums. I'm just that guy that thinks he's special enough to be the one to tell people how to act.
Hi! I shouldn't be a strange face by now, since I have been posting news and diablo 3 wiki updates for many moons now, but I haven't introduced myself, so here goes! =)
I have been a fan of Diablo since D1, and played that extensively, basically wrecking my College grades. I was a member of Dii.net, likely under the name of "targetgamer", "Leoric" or something like it. I've played D2 on and off up to a few years ago, when I started to play WoW with a vigour. In the meantime, I have also been a huge StarCraft, and a medium WarCraft fan.
Interested in WoW, I started doing news and moderation over at WoW.net, started helping Flux with Hellgate, and moving over to StarCraftWire (best SC news/article site on the net!) when Hellgate flopped. I did get an interest with wikis from Hellgate, at the very least (did you hear it's resurrected btw?).
For several Blizzard events, I have had the great luck of attending, seeing early versions of StarCraft 2, as well as the Diablo 3 demo.
As not that much have been happening with StarCraft for a long time, I have for the last several months directed my energy on the Diablo 3 Wiki, as well as some over at the Diablo 2 Wiki, and depending where the need is the greatest at any given moment, I'll be on either the Diablo site or the Starcraft one.
If you have any pointers, suggestions or questions for the wikis, feel free to PM me, or contact me through one of the many ways I have listed on my wiki user page!
I'm 31 years old (too old to play children-games, I know; hee hee, LOL), and I'm from Madrid, Spain. Please, sorry for my bad English.
I'm playing since the Diablo saga started, but only in battlenet since Diablo2-LOD 1.10 came. I played single until then because before I was so poor to got internet myself, huh.
Uhmm... I'm a pure hardcore and ultra-legit player since years ago, and usually play alone most time, chatting with my friends by /f m ofc, and sometimes sharing some runs when everybody promised me to turn off their maphacks.
I'm a Druid and Necromancer player, specially Druid. I love him (not pretended zoophylia here lol).
The only druid I don't like is the overpowered wind one, but I made a lot of diferent druid-types and like them all: Fire elemental druid (very fun to play in hc), werewolves, werebears (many of them, with armageddon or just fire claws), and of course one of my favorites characters: the Hunter Druid, one of the most underpowered and funny character to complete the game playing alone in hc mode.
I liked too play untwinked sometimes (with no mule and only using the items I find myself), and finished the game with some kind of easy chars in hardcore, like everykind of necros, trapper and druids too.
In my times of extensive play, I also was a main Contribute-mod in the best leggit Spanish web so far, "diablo2latino" (I got over 7,000 posts, almost 7 years). I wrote down some strategy guides there, like this one for Fire Werebear http://www.diablo2latino.com/PNphpBB...c-t-13331.html
My internet names always were Valmar or NecroMoncer, but in this forum I couldn't register like Valmar, then I choosed "Valmy"
Everybody call me just Val usually.
Thats all, I hope to learn a lot from this site about Diablo III and also try my best to share with you my opinions and experiences in the upcoming D3.
Well, I played Diablo for the playstation with my neighbor and loved it! Although he would always steal my gear while I was sleeping and then export it to another one of his characters. Anyways, DII LOD was fun. I played the beta of 1.10 and came up with an awesome build ... which later became a staple cookie cutter. My hammerdin was the first pally in the 90+ lvl range on the latter after that patch. Anyways, I love these kinds of game and will be playing hc if my pc/internet allows for it.
Finally, the people you play the game with result in more fun than the game itself, so if you want someone to play through the game with at a specific time each night, let me know. This one looks like it'll turn out great!
