    I want to get back into D2:LOD since the ladder is about to reset. This time around I'd like to join up with some of you guys, instead of waiting to randomly make new friends. I have always played on the USEast ladder, but I've heard that now USWest is where all the fun is.

    So where do most of you play? I'm planning on warming up to D2 again on SP for now. Also, if none of you recognize me it's because I've only posted in the D3 forum... :)

    :-( I don't think I'll ever play on the EU server as I live in Kansas, in the very center of the US.

    I went ahead and started a Fishymancer to prepare for the ladder reset. I've heard they're great starting MF characters because of basically being non-item dependent. My first time playing a Necro too, and it's quite fun just standing back and letting your minions do everything for you.

    Yea, you'll probably get at least 300 ping to EU.

    I've heard that most people play on west now, because east has stability issues.

    Fishy is a really great starter for sure. Biggest downside is that it doesn't have teleport ;)

    The upside is that it doesn't have teleport!

    Instead of skipping all monsters to get to a boss, you're actually killing more monsters, increasing your overall chances at getting runes/gems/charms/items, whereas running bosses will mostly net you an item every few runs :thumbsup:

    Still, a sorceress that does full clears, gets it done faster! ;)

    I hate mf-ing with necromancers. I like the full blown Sorceress and the Cold tree!

    This is true, but Archone nailed it.

    A cold sorc in AT is tough to beat. She can also run meph and pindle. And all 3 of those targets require very little good gear to accomplish.

    Yep, and takes enough time to not exceed the 20games/hour limit! :nod:

    When I play D2 these days I only play SP. It's been a few years since I've played on east and many years since I've played on west.

    I only play on the European server, even though Ive played on USEast one ladder.

    As already said many times, the East server seems to have issues. So most tend to use the West one. If you live in that part of the world ofc! ;)
    Overall, the EU server seems to be the most active one. Imo, and from several friends active in D2.



    Peace

    I play on US West SCL. There are a lot bots, but in a way it makes it easier to find baal runs and get starter gear. I still meet some nice people from time to time though.

    I do like playing a Sorc' or Hammerdin personally they can progress through the game the fastest IMO.

    Cheers!

    I almost always play on east, but I've gotten tired of the FTJ's so I'm trying USWest this ladder.
