    As the ladder will be reset in a few hours, all ladder characters will be transferred over to non-ladder.
    I am just wondering, is anyone is keen to get back into Diablo leading up to the hopeful release of Diablo 3 near the end of this year?

    I just found my D2 and LOD disks yesterday while sorting through boxes of old computer crap that I've been carting from house to house with me for the last 10 years.

    I'd definitely be keen to fire it up for old times sake and to prepare myself the the glory that will be Diablo III.

    I probably won't be able to for a week or so though as I'm still waiting on my internet to be hooked up at the new house. :upset:

    Although I am a MASSIVE D2 fan, the graphics are really starting to look dated, gameplay aside.

    I'm playing Titan Quest: Immortal Throne instead, basically just as good as D2 IMO, with better class system and 100 x better graphics. Give it a go if you haven't already.

    Oh, and you'll be waiting a wait till D3.

    I'd like to, but I already play a lot of games..

    I don't know, I'll visit this thread again soon.

    Edit: If a few of us do end up playing, I call Druid :p

    I've been playing TQ:IT quite a bit but have stopped recently. There just isn't the replayability of D2, I don't know if it's the random area generation but you get to know every area of TQ and that just makes it too obvious and boring.
    Besides D2 was built for Glide 3D acceleration so it gives me a chance to play on my retro pcs.
    My Pentium 266MHz puts alot of PCs to shame playing D2 with 3D thanks to it's 3dfx Banshee card enabling glide acceleration, LOL.

    the community isn't quite what it used to be imho... A lot of people still play, but its full of spam-bots, the trade channels are dead, the forums are full of 12 year olds (jsp, dii.net, etc) and there seems to be almost no competitive pvping happening... Those were the reasons I played in the first place. Its kinda pointless nowadays anyway, everybody just buys gear off of the internetz :confused:

    Well if anyone starts playing online, send me a PM or something. Maybe we should make a Steam group for this actually..
