I played on the closed bnet, did it for years. But I could have cared less if you or anyone else cheated, it didn't affect my game play one bit. If you had 100 dupped stones of jordan, didn't affect me. I keep hearing you act like D2 was an MMO, and I just never saw it like that.Like I said earlier, the constant online isn't for our protection, its for them. Just another way to slip in shitty DRM and act like they are doing us favor by doing it.
Yes and no. Most of the time the ladders were a joke. A few specific ladders at certain era's were competitive. Did you know that they moved to a second level of player segregation for ladder characters? They operate in an economy of their own for ~6 months, then the ladder characters get moved to generic battle.net and a new ladder is created. Were you even aware of that mechanic? It sounds like Scrym didn't actually play the game during any of those stages.
Give it time. Watch their other games. They have two basic models now: subscription forever or free to play with DRM lockdown to force purchases. They need to extend both, and this is one step in a long road of acclimating players to the models.
The whole deal with the ladder was interesting I guess, but was never that big of a deal to me. If I remember right, it was added quite a few years after the LOD xpac. It was more a thing to try and drum up interest in an older game from what I could tell. I was pretty much done with the game by the time it was added, at least if I remember right.
Here's what you just said."The problem with using a Game Genie is there was no risk for all the reward, removing a certain element of interest in the game."
If Diablo is a legit competitive multiplayer game, then so is River City Ransom.
Yeah, I do still plan to buy it when it is way less moneys.
You guys will probably have to wait until the next Diablo is released to get it at any significant discount.
I just woke up and skimmed the thread. It would take too long to correct most of the errors I'm seeing. Quite simply put.....I am a former Blizzard employee who helped enforce penalties for cheating in all Blozxard titles. While I hav to be vague about certain things, cheating was everywhere and it was always hunted down and punished. If there is one thing blizzard does not take kindly to, it's cheating.
Cheating at multiplayer StarCraft definitely needs to be taken down. The only parties that get hurt when you "cheat" at WoW or Diablo is Blizzard and satan the devil.
@George: I've got a few passes for D3. Do you want one?
