I've spent my some time building characters and loot in NL, and even with talk of very few public games, I found there to be QUITE few public games. So, I made a Ladder character to check the public status, and sure enough, the list is huge. I have never seen the point in playing Ladder. Isn't it too late? I understand it's possible to play without competing for a ranking, but if that's what you're doing, why play Ladder at all? I'm thinking now that my time has been wasted, and I must begin anew on Ladder if I hope to interact with other people.
