    This makes it a no buy for me until ladder is implemented.
    Im torn, i need to play this but my main requires a engima to function.

    This is my thoughts on the matter.

    Actually, ANY Blizz game is a no buy from me until such time as they sort their shit out and make amends.
    Fundamental civil rights are only "political" if you're trying to take them away from people.

    They've also cut LAN, claiming security issues.

    Piss off.

    Good news!
    Enigma, as well as many amazing runewords are 1.10, not ladder only.

    That does beg the question though, how will High Runes be valued assuming blizzard can be arsed to remove bots and duping methods? I seem to recall only ever finding 3 HRs in over 5 years of non-ladder play, playing every weekday after school.

    I didn't know they had a shared stash in regular d2. Or a modified character sheet. By definition "literally" not the same.

    I don't know about you guys, but this makes the game a no buy for me. Really cannot understand what Blizzard is thinking here. This is one of the core features of D2 and it's going to launch without it? Why can't they do one feature full launch, this is a 20 years old game...
    Give everyone the chance to enjoy it at their own pace before FOMO kicks in and people feel compelled to grind the climb. Society and gaming are very different than they were 20 years ago. If you can’t understand this, you’re not trying hard enough.

    You’re a freaking fool if you think they were going to launch the ladder seasons day 1, it’s stupid to launch a competitive ladder system the same day as a world wide launch of a game.

    It’s not a blizzard game though technically…. The team that did it worked on it for 4 years and just recently been merged with blizzard.

    It also depends how many people use d2 jsp out of the gate.

    It's being made by Vicarious Visions. They've been rolled into Blizzard, but this is still a new team from an external studio with a good track record (Crash Trilogy / THPS 1+2).

    The game is irrelevant, you used the word literally. When it fact it isn't. Its like saying that guy is literally 10 feet tall. No, he literally is not 7 feet tall, he's 6 foot 10...

    This really isn't a big deal.. there are like 2 weeks between every d3 reset too. Just play a regular character for a few weeks to get used to the new ui and stuff. I'm sure there will be a few glitches that they want to work out and of course possible server stability issues. Dont forget about the fact that it has cross play and controller support that might have kinks to work out also.

    I honestly don't care about the multiplayer aspects of D2 anymore. I really just want to shuffle along in my softcore game collecting and building my characters at this point in time.

    Years ago, yea, I enjoyed the multiplayer. But I got over that like a decade and a half ago.

    Imagine being such a shit company that you can't even make a game from the 90's better in 2020 than they did....back in the 90's at that very same company...

    I basically never played ladders. On one side i had only a bad 56k and lag was impressively bad, on the other the gameplay hook is just so fine playing single player all the time felt just good.

    I don't know if i'll buy the game or not, but i really hope people find a way to mod it
    You tried, and you failed. What have you learned? That's better not to try at all.

    " We wanted to take this opportunity to share that Ladder Only Rune Words, Unique Items, and Horadric Cube Recipes that were once restricted to Ladder rank play will now for the first time be included in non-ladder multiplayer and single player play. " - Hooley

    so thats awesome but, it does take the incentive away from seasonal play

    I probably won't play ladder unless there's some sort of incentive.
