    Hi guys. I've really been missing that super awesome game.
    Is it worthwhile to play nowadays?
    How many players nowadays on euro realm?
    How you guys managing d2 on 22+ inch screens?
    Just started POE. Good game but I still yearn for D2. Maybe it's nostalgia

    Dont know about euro realm.I play on softcore lod uswest ladder. Theres plenty of games there. Sometimes 3 pages worth of normal games at peak hours. Plenty of nm and hell games as well.Im also on softcore classic uswest ladder to rune rush, but games are sparse there.Hardcore lod uswest ladder is about medium pop. decent activity at peak hours but can also be quiet.DONT play on useast. That server has issues. you frequently get stuck in failed to join trying to enter games.

    Last reset was in May, next reset will probably be in November again.

    Its right in the middle of the ladder.

    They've made it so that its pointless to play unless you start on Day 1 and don't mind the futility of it all.

    I wish they'd hold another vote. I miss playing.

    From the context, I'd say that at some point Blizzard listened to and considered the "advice/ideas" of us players and incorporate those into the game?

    I wasn't aware of this, so would like to know more myself :)

    Blizzard held a vote to decide how long ladders would be going forward. A horde of morons apparently voted for 6 months.

    Actually, that's not fair. I assume that they were just people without jobs and evening activities.

    It's basically made it impossible for many of us to enjoy playing as there is insufficient time to get everything accomplished we wish to accomplish in a given ladder. It also makes it pointless to join a ladder midway.

    I agree with you that 6 months is too short, it only benefits the stupid botters who aren't even playing the game anyways

    Actually, the 6months ladder isnt as profitable as a 12months or longer ladder, for the botters.
    Thats one of the reasons people voted for 6months!

    I voted aswell, but on 9 months.. :banghead:

    Wouldn't we rather vote for a system to keep out the botters? And one that actually works rather than annoy the common players?

    Iirc, this vote accured just before the major bot wave began. But I do agree with you mate!

    I quit this ladder because no legit baal/diaruns. We had so much fun at op ranbot channel with legit dia/baalruns almost 24/7 players to play with. But then diablo3 ruined it all :(

    We had this bot on ''op ranbot'' channel that kept counting run time and you could see what games were up and stats etc.

    Would be so cool if there would come new guild like this because ranbot quit with diablo2. (one more reason why i hate d3)

    This ladder started the 14th of May, american time.

    The 15th of May 01:00 am Central European Time.


    I guess the next reset will be somewhere between the 14th and the 24th of November. Because the previous ladder reset was 8days late.

    I'm thinking about starting next ladder on Euro realm since the US realms are pretty slow and euro seems like the place to be. Is there still the teleport lag penalty? Anyone know how bad it is? I live in Canada on the west coast.

    Im not sure how bad it is, but you can easily check that by creating an acc on EU. And try casting Firebolt or something, should be able to note the delays.
