    Gauss members V2 (Europe Hardcore Ladder)

    OP Gauss is a closed channel for Hardcore Ladder players on the Europe realm.

    This information is important. If you want to become and remain a member of gauss, read it in full!

    Who are we looking for?
    Nice, legit D2 hardcore players who look for a safe community.

    How can i join?
    • Read the documentation (this post and the command list), it's annoying to tell everyone seperately how the channel works when there is good and short documentation.
    • Accept the Rules: behave, so that the channel is a fun and safe place for all.
      • Be a good citizen. Participate in the channel, help others, get involved!
      • Never message the gauss password to anyone and anywhere. If you do, you will possibly get exiled or at least timebanned for a week.
      • Don't grab. If you are in a run, the runner normally has first pick at drops. In normal games, ask. If you picked it up anyway, DON'T IDENTIFY IT and ask for it.
      • Don't cheat. And no, there are no harmless cheats.
      • Don't pk unfairly.
    • Get a vouch by a senior member or op of the gauss channel. Sorry, but this is necessary.
    • Post in the gausschannel members forum, including a paragraph of readable text with decent spelling where you introduce yourself.
    • Ask your voucher to reply to your post.

    When can I use the channel?
    Wait for a reply to your post. Don't enter the channel before the reply! The bot will kick and ban you right away.

    How do I get started?
    After you have been added, just "/join op gauss". You will get a greeting information from the bot:
    • Join the gausschannel members forum
    • Check your .rank and ask to get promoted to newcomer, if you are not already. Otherwise, you can't use the .password and entering gauss games will get you, and the one who told you the password, banned.
    • Get to know the members of the channel, you can use .meminfo to see how trustworthy someone is. Get involved in the channel, leechers will be removed.
    • use the .help command for pointers.
    • Right click on the bot to get some important commands.



    Rules for ops:
    • only add people who have a vouch from a senior member
    • promote known people with no rank to newcomer

    I have more questions!
    Ask in the channel, or search this forum for gauss commands.

    One last thing...
    In your application, state that you have read and understood the gauss channel rules and information. If you don't do this, you application can be rejected with "Gauss error #1". Also, you will be laughed at if you say you did not know the rules.

    Re: Gauss members V2

    Hello :wave:.

    Name: Thomas (called Tom mostly but also TJ or Joe on occasion)
    Age: 36
    Occupation: Teacher atm. but has a degree in Computer Programming and also a 3-year education as a Grocer (I know - weird combo)
    Interests: I like the nature a lot and I often take long walks. I also enjoy fishing very much, though I'm by no means a shark (hehe). I listen to all sorts of music, but mostly just mainstrem pop/rock these days - whatever is on the radio (still like some of the oldies though). In the evenings (besides playing DII) I like to watch a good movie.
    Chars: A BO-barb, a Hammerdin, a Smiter and planning TK/Orb (socialism) Sorc and Fishy.
    Accounts: TJ_Hardcore and TJ_Hardcore2

    I don't frequent the channel much, but if you need a rush or some help with muling or WPs or something similar, I am online quite often and usually ready to help. Feel free to whisper any time. I play 2 accounts on 2 computers, so rushing is quite easy - but know though that (being old) I tend to play patiently and with caution.

    Regards Tom
    [The people who can vouch for me, no longer frequent the channel :\]


    #EDIT: Forgot to mention my Windy Druid (75). I never use him though, as he just dosen't kill as fast as the hammer. I may take him a few levels higher, when I get extremely bored one day.

    Random: Well, i've played the Diablo games since they were released, and have been addicted to them ever since. I distinctly remember when i bought Diablo2, my girlfriend at the time was giving me hassle when i said i wanted to buy it because apparently i was "wasting my money". Anyway, like us blokes do, i ignored her comments and spent £35 on Diablo2. Took the game home and started slaying some demons. My girlfriend sat and watched for a while, then said "erm. . . can i have a go?"
    From that moment on i couldnt get her off the damned thing!!

    I used to play barbs all the time, since my computer is too slow to use a necro, or to tele with a sorc. Now i have an addiction to obscure builds, and am currently not seeking any treatment for it :wink:

    Alot of people in the channel will know of me, and i'm always willing to help where i can, always chatting in the lobby, and yes guys, almost always afk for a schmoke :whistling:

    Anyway, I'll see you all in the lobby. Stay safe everyone!

    Me again:

    Name: Bryan
    Age: 39
    Occupation: Industrial Controls and Software Engineer
    Chars: AJ_Crowley, Trappyslapper, Chlorine, Hork_Smash
    Accounts: *basket-case and multiple mule accounts that don't channel hang.

    Played a horrendous amount of D2 around 2003-2004 until life kicked me in the balls and made me pull my finger out again.

    Also played Knight-Online, EvE, WoW, X2 and X3 and various others, and currently undergoing a refreshment of Diablo2 Hardcore when I'm not raiding in WoW with my uber-shaman.

    Was a regular in the old chat gat-europe channel, and a member of some of the early KTA runs. Hopefully Baranor, Det and maybe even Chiller-babe can remember me :)

    I don't put up with any crap, thieves maphackers, script kiddy pks and the like can all burn in hell. If you don't fit the above list, then I'm a nice chap, even if I'm a grumpy old bastard at times.

    P.S. Does this mean my gauss rights have been revoked until I get a reply here?

    Hai :punk:

    Name: Call me Zel
    Age: 14.... :whistling:
    Occupation: School slave
    Chars: An untwinked Fire druid only atm.
    Accounts: Sober. , Sob. , Sobmule

    So, I'm from norway, born as a computer//music freak.. Mostly the things I do at my spare time is, playing a instrument called "Euphonium", playing TEH piano, and ofc D2. I've played a couple o' years, but I started playing at battle net only like 1,5 years ago.. so I'm still a nub. I jumped right to HC after I completed SC. The first death I can recall was a lvl 24 hammerdin, who just had gotten a spirit sword from a friend, so that made me a lil upset. :p I'm sure there were death's before that hammerdin too though....

    Vouches: I think Earl, teh boss Floyd and some other peeps can vouch for me being a hax-free and not-stealing guy.. I can make some lame jokes however, quite a lot of them, so take w/e I say with a "grain of salt" (right, right?).

    Cheers!

    Re: Gauss members V2

    I will vouch for this guy anytime. I just got my 2nd deeds this ladder, and he was there instantly to help me out. Even through dolls and OKs.
    And whatever I offered for the help, he simply refused.

    The recovered equipment wasn't terribly impressive, but it's the best I have atm. The items I was most anxious to get back were a 35fcr spirit in a @42 Sacred Rondache and an Um'ed upped Viper :embarassed:.

    This is the 2nd death of my hammer TuT_Thor (90 and 81).


    ...and I think I'll take a little break from DII as well :cry:.

    Age: 47
    Location: Zurich
    Occupation: I have a master in physics and computer science, am currently developing software in the area of medical imaging, and also work as a teacher.
    Interests: Physics, computer programming, and maths are my main interests, but i also like being in the nature (sailing, jogging, gardening) or last not least spend time with my wife. I started playing computer games way back with titles like ZORK, Wizardry, a lot of rpgs like Dungeon Master and finally got hit by Diablo 1, Diablo 2 classic and LOD. Like many of us i have played d2 with longer breaks since the beginning.
    Chars: orb/tk, fishymancer, furyzon.

    I run the gauss channel bot, and had quite some fun setting it up and scripting custom commands for the gauss channel. I show up in the channel mostly in the later afternoon for a short visit, or then later at night for longer sessions.

    If i'm in the channel feel free to ask me for safe muling or anything else, i will be glad to help, time permitting.

    Re: Gauss members V2

    My name is Dmitry... friends call me Koy or Lucky (i always win at dice and cards). I'm almost 34 (coming September) and i was born at Friday, 13-th That alone should give you enough impression. I have degree at economics and management, but since that field bored the crap out of me and i have a lot of IT experience, during last years i've been working as Software testing expert for video/audio security systems.

    I play Diablo from release date, although with huge vacations from time to time. First game i've ever played dates back to computers without hard drives with 1 MB of extended memory I'm a huge fan of old school text MuDs and everything about MMORPGs. Even "freelanced" for Blizzard for 2 years as part of a team, that developed original economical concept for WoW ( please no violence about BoP items ).

    I'm also a fan of creative writing so act as journalist and chief editor of 2 russian gaming web-journals and (yes, i love to brag) received "Most influential gaming journalist of 2007" reward from Runet (russian-net) media organisation.

    That's pretty much it Whisper me anytime you want some help or rushes or quests or Baals or anything else. I love helping people out, so i do it with pleasure and always jump on opportunities. My active account is *Koyen

    Name: Anton
    Age: 30
    Location: Sliedrecht, NL
    Occupation: Software engineer.
    Chars: Leaper barby (7x), fishy necro (2x) and a frost zealot (1x).
    Accounts: *oOmpie, *uncLezKTA

    DOOM series and Quake series.. That was all she fricking wrote for me for my teenage years. Have been playing QW, Q2 and Q3 competitively at medium to high national lvl, but I had to start working at some time, that's when I switched to all kinds of games to just play casually, mostly non-FPS. Last couple of years the main one of which has been D2. Played D1 and D2 a lot before but single player. Current member of KTA.

    Used to play in a death metal band for over 10 years with a mild degree of success and been powerlifting last ten years or so. Not too much success there, but it's a damn cool hobby :D

    Not too much Diablo time for me, but sometimes the urge kicks in and I will be on a lot, just depends :D

    Hope to see you around!
