    Diablo 2 or 3

    Looking for a game to play with a buddy of mine. So when you log into Diablo 2 b.net when it says "100,000 players on battle.net, 34,000 on Diablo 2, 13,000 on US East, what are the numbers as of today? If they're low I'm just going to get Diablo 3. On a side note the highest count I remember I think was 560,000 on Battle.net. But hell back in 2001 maybe it was higher I just forgot.

    I started back up on D2 West last night after a hiatus... it ain't slowing down at all. Tons of games and players. Also tons of spam GRRR, but it's always been that way.

    There are always like 20,000+ on B.net for Diablo 2, but I think bots represent the majority. If you want a fun game to play together with one other friend, then either game works for that. D3 has slowed down a lot and there aren't that many people playing right now. D2 has a much better social scene to meet new friends and play multiplayer games together. If you want a game to enjoy alone - an hour here or there - get D3. If you want to make (online) friends and spend more time online talking to people, get D2.

    Perhaps nobody knows the exact numbers you are requesting?
    Where and how would you look up those numbers, and if you know, why don't you share them yourself?

    The fact is that people enjoy playing D2, whether there are 500k people online, or 20k, you can only fit 1-7 friends in a game anyways ;-)

    I actually don't see that information on my screen, only 1 news item about starcraft/warcraft, all the rest is character screen or games to join.

    I'm confused, if you know where the info is, and you've seen it, you know what the numbers are, why ask here?
