Hey fellow clan members!
I just wanted to post something so you all can get to know me and so we can start out by being totally awesome. Why is clan OD so tight for people playing Diablo 2? Previously all of my gaming was a solo event. Bot up until you get to a high enough level to actually start doing shit in the game. That experience drove me away from diablo for YEARS. With clan members starting teams and having open forum discussions the game feels like a new place. Weirdly sentimental attachments to old school gaming combined with a lack of excitement about D3 always bring me back here. With such a large community it feels like we should be doing something to get the game we all really want and deserve. While D3 pays homage to D2 and D1 in a lot of ways it just isn't the same game. We've been following blizzard for years, and they can't give us something truly exciting to play. SC2 is the best remake of a classic game, because it stayed true to the things that made the original gameplay amazing but invoked a new community of dedicated players.
So what now.
With D3 sucking eggs our only option is to bring back the vicious D2 community. Maybe, just maybe with enough support and good ideas we can influence blizzard to either remaster the game (professionally as opposed to some third party private bs) or show them where they went right and that in fact it was so right that we still play, for some of us more than 15 years after the release.
Thanks for the recruit Boydbrooks(OD)
