    Assembling Ladder Reset Team

    A battle.net CALL TO ARMS.

    Consider this the mid-June CTA. East Hardcore Ladder.

    I've got 7 slots, D2/LOD .iso files, 6 sets of cd-keys, a Ventrilo server, and a 24-pack of beer. Who shall join me?

    In case you've forgotten, this is how much fun we had the first time.

    Re: Assembling Ladder Reset Team

    Resetting on a Tuesday? Lame. I wish I had the sort of time to do this, especially on a weekday, but I dont. It's probably for the best though, because having not played in ages, I'd probably die some silly death in normal somewhere, and if I did manage to survive, I'd have to keep playing D2 :coffee:

    Good luck on the ladder run!

    My last day of class is the 16th. I hate life for making this so convenient...

    Of course you'll find a way to talk me into it, but for right now I'm standing by my principles flimsy as they may be.

    Cheers

    Screw it, principles are for the weak

    Re: Assembling Ladder Reset Team

    I'll do it. I can easily get the days off, so count me in. I'll take the Summoner/Orber, which ever.

    Although, I don't know quite what I will do afterwards, I don't know if I want to start over again unless they come out with a patch.

    The ladder reseting is really just a mean fricken tease to me......

    *gulps*

    I have not touched DII for two years.... but that is smack bam in the middle of my vacation, and honestly, really, honestly, my wife and her mother and her sis will be off the 18th, the entire day... temptation, temptation.... nothing, I repeat nothing beats massacring people on battle net the first two days of a ladder run, when no-one has high level chars, arms, equipment or stuff. The urge to kill is so great...

    Re: Assembling Ladder Reset Team

    Naming convention: CTA-Somethingorother
    I'd pick something you'd want to be remembered by. Don't forget, we'll be visible by every ladder player on D2. With this setup, nobody is obsolete/boring/useless. Everyone is integral. Except maybe a Druid.

    I've figured it out. It's so simple; I came up with it last year.

    8) BO + anything fast-hitting Barbarian (Frenzy is likely > Whirlwind)
    7) Zeal Avenger: Conviction Paladin using Zeal as primary attack
    6) 20 Death Sentry assassin (Trappers are tops, as Sha-ZAM proved)
    5) Light Fury Amazon with a bunch in MS or Strafe
    4) Full-out summoner Necromancer with decent LR
    3) Druid (?) for the sake of character completion, or Hammerdin or another MS/Javazon (best)
    2) Orb/TK or weak Blizz/TK

    ...and finally, the one build that cements the whole team together and makes every character and build here useful and "efficient" at killing.

    1) 20 Static Field | 1 Frost Nova | Enchantress

    The first Stealth, Spirit, Carin Shard, Magefist, FCR itams and all sapphire-type gems will go to this character, who will spam FN/SF through Normal and Nightmare, making them a joke. By early nightmare (level 50ish = 49 skill points + 5 from quests), this character will have a decent enchant, meaning it kicks in just as character killspeed starts slowing down just a tad (shouldn't matter anyway as every enemy is getting slivered).

    We'll likely finish normal in well under 2 hours.

    With the Static Field / Enchantress, I guarantee we'll be #1-8 on the ladder.


    Dibs on the Assassin, CTA-Socialism.

    Re: Assembling Ladder Reset Team

    Team Gillian*
    - Summoner Necromancer
    - Static Field Enchantress
    - Light Fury Amazon + MS/Strafe
    - Barbarian (BO + any... DS > Frenzy in terms of safety)

    Gillian's 25, more experienced, and a terrible workaholic. She's super-comfortable with her witty self and kinda crazy: she's more suited to wide-open spaces and traveling (she's toured Southeast Asia ...but missed Malaysia).


    Team Tara*
    - Orb/TK
    - ZealVenger
    - DS Assassin
    - Druid (?) / Hammerdin / Javazon

    Tara's 19 (?), super friendly, and seems pretty easy. She thinks I'm crazy-hilarious. She's perky with a tight little body (read: 10 year old boy butt), thus well suited for being pounded into small spaces, i.e. Maggot Lair. Dave boinked her, so I'm not a super big fan... but whatever. Fun's fun.

    *Yes, teams are named after hot waitresses that work at the same bar.


    Game Progression (Normal)

    Act 1
    - All vs. Den
    - Tara vs. Raven
    - Gillian vs. Stony
    - All vs. Cain
    - Tara vs. Tower
    - Gillian vs. Cloister
    - all vs. Butcher, Andariel

    Act 2
    - Tara vs. Rhadament
    - Gillian vs. Cube
    - Tara vs. Maggots
    - Gillian vs. Vipers
    - All vs. Arcane
    - Tara/Gillian vs. alternating Tombs
    - All vs. Duriel

    Act 3
    - Tara vs. Spider
    - Gillian vs. Flayer hunt
    - Tara vs. Kurast hunt
    - Gillian vs. Sewers
    - Teams converge vs. A3 - gets too dangerous for weaker characters

    Act 4
    - Killall

    Act 5
    - ALL Ral Ort Tal runes are saved up and cubed to make a Sol rune
    - Gillian vs. Anya
    - Tara vs. Ancients hunt
    - All vs. Ancients
    - Gillian gets Baal Quest
    - Tara kills first-drop bug Baals until Gillian's ready for Nightmare

    Nightmare
    - Gillian scours Nightmare for a 4 socket polearm; once found, back to Normal Baals until Tara's equipped for Nightmare

    - Forges done 8x with unparty

    Hell
    - Forges done 8x with unparty




    SO WHO'S IN AGAIN?

    Re: Assembling Ladder Reset Team

    Hahaha, the last ladder reset happened, when I was on honeymoon. When I came back and checked prizes for torches and organ sets, I went like "WTF, two weeks out of country and prizes explode like mad". Then some of my mates told me via teamspeak, that there was a reset and I had a horrible lot to do to catch up.

    [Edit] I just relazied, that I finished my sorc three days ago, just to have to build her again. *sigh*

    Re: Assembling Ladder Reset Team

    I'd really enjoy doing this as long as my DSL doesn't crap out on me... which it seems to be doing as of late... Verizon-grrr and no it's not FIOS (way 2 expensive for my budget)...

    I'd play the ZealVenger
