  2. Reading old forum posts.

    Not many of us were around then. Same for me, though. I was a much angrier back then.
  3. First placement game of S8

    My highest was Gold 1 a few seasons ago. I had made a hard push the last weekend before season end and got 2 wins in my promo to Plat, but then lost 3 in a row with 2 trolls. Since then I kind of gave up on ranked. I did do my placements this season and got Silver 2, though. If you wanna play I'm down to duo. I play Mid/Support primarily.
  4. School shootings in the U.S.

    Just because people might find another way to commit mass-killings does not mean that you cannot attack the issue in multiple steps. There is no cure-all. Here are some steps that would all contribute to solving the problem. Step 1: ban gun shows or only allow licensed vendors to sell at them Step 2: mental health checks for firearms purchases Step 3: mandatory licensing/insurance for firearms that can accept magazines > X rounds Step 4: more/better security at vulnerable targets such as schools and public events Step 5: take mental health more seriously and make treatment options more accessible
  5. PC Build Service

    Hey OD friends. My name is Collin. I like to build custom PCs. I am knowledgeable as far as parts for specific applicatons, trends in gaming/PC building, upcoming part releases, and so on. Over the last 18 months I've built 10-12 PCs with my own hands for myself, friends, and family. I really enjoy it. Are you interested in buying/building a new PC, but the thought of figuring out what parts to get and assembling them sounds daunting to you? Are you looking for general recommendations? Feel free to contact me. You can ask questions here, PM me on the main site, and/or hit me up on TeamSpeak/Discord. I'm always on Discord (it's on my phone) and I can be reached for questions at any time. Additionally, if you want a custom PC but assembly is not something you're interested in, I've decided to offer my service as a builder. You can purchase the parts from a website like Amazon or Newegg and ship them to me directly, you can send them to me from your home, or we can meet up (if you're in the Northeast Ohio area) and I'll build it for you. Most recently my friend Brigadier General Ghost(OD) sent me roughly $1000 in parts to do just this for him! I received his parts, assembled it, managed the cables (gotta look good!), installed Windows, updated it, installed requested games/applications, and had it shipped out to him in less than 24 hours. I cannot promise I will always be that fast, but I usually can't wait tinker with new PC parts. For this service, I will ask for the shipping cost via PayPal and we will need to come to an agreement for the cost of my time. To do Ghost's build we simply swapped RAM kits, which ended up being a $30 or $40 difference. Shipping I believe was $40 via UPS. If you're interested, please contact me! I love this shit. I do not do custom water cooled builds. Ghost's PC during assembly: My current PC:
  6. PC Build Service

    Please do. And I do it because it's fun! haha For sure. You'd be surprised how cheap and easy it really can be.
  7. Anyone play any custom D2 mods?

    Started playing Path of Diablo with some friends recently. It's basically D2 with balance changes, some skills tweaked/added/removed based on need, and a different end-game. They pulled aspects that people liked from Path of Exile and improved Diablo with them.
  8. Thank you Collin!

    Too bad you left the thread up all day for people to look into... :P
  9. Anyone play any custom D2 mods?

    I play I have two toons. I can do rushes, but no one does grushes really.
  10. Anyone play any custom D2 mods?

    No unfortunately. Super annoying, but they want it to be as close to the original iteration of D2 as possible. Just some QoL/balance changes. Like one major change is you have a charm inventory as well as backpack-type inventory. Charm inventory is 40 slots and your other inventory is 50 or so slots. Also, Enigma has been nerfed so that less people care about it. The Teleport skill it gives you has a high mana cost and hard cooldown.
  11. Microphone suggestions?

    How much do you wanna spend?
  12. Discord and Eggplants

    Good fucking question.
  13. Just can't take it any more

    We all noobs it's nbd.
  14. Just can't take it any more

    Sorry to hear bud. Keep your head up.
  15. Discord and Eggplants

    I had reluctantly accepted the previous decisions, but I am glad to see this has been sorted out. "Gamer trolling" is commonplace in a gaming community, and I think some of us need to remember that this is a place to goof around and have fun. If you're uncomfortable or upset by someone messing with you or having fun at your expense (or at the expense of another), then you should PM that person and let them know how you feel. I think you will find that people are reasonable and that honest and open communication can solve most problems. To anyone looking to torpedo someone's reputation or push an agenda based on personal grievances, know that in the future you will see a much more aggressive response to your actions. This shit isn't cool to do and is not welcome in this community. Now that all of that's been said... anyone who decided to judge me or anyone else after hearing only one side of the story should be ashamed of themselves.
  16. My first community opinion post

    You say that... but web updates are notoriously slow around here.

  19. Your (OD) Account!

    It's my name.
  20. Not sure where this belongs...

    We're still around.
  21. Freebies <3 Ladder, SC East

    I still need Insight runes if you got 'em dawg. Also, looking to give away my Spirit CS, Spirit Shroud armor, Eye of Etlich, and some other stuff that Purple gave me to anyone who needs.
  22. Freebies <3 Ladder, SC East

    I'm at work. I can get on D2, but not on TS3. Can't get on TS3 until I get home tonight, which is likely gonna be around 7 PM Eastern time. Also, Purple hooked me up with some Spirit runs. It came out 28, but it'll do for now!
  23. Freebies <3 Ladder, SC East

    I too came back to Diablo (first toon in a few years) and currently have a level 35 sorc. I found a Spirit Shroud last night, but I'd like to upgrade to a Vipermagi. Ideally 35 res, but beggers can't be choosers. Also, I nabbed a Crystal Sword in normal cows and holepunched it, so now I have a 4 soc CS with Tal in it. Looking for Thul Ort Amn to make that a Spirit. Or swap it for a 30 or 35 FCR spirit board sword/crystal sword. Or Occy. Additionally, looking for basic MF gear (Chancies, Tal Belt, etc.). A Rhyme bone shield would be great as well. If not a Rhyme, then Shael rune would be nice so I can make one myself. FT: my undying love
  24. Switched to Ryzen

    Assembling a build for Joe and swapping my Corsair Vengeance RGB for his TridentZ RGB as payment for assembling/installing/updating everything. :) I've had my eye on this RAM for a long time (it works better with ASUS AuraSync than the Corsair RGB does) and am very excited because I just couldn't justify buying more RAM at the current prices.
  25. Switched to Ryzen

    Here are some Benchmark comparisons between my i7-6700k overclocked and my Ryzen 5 1600 overclocked.
