I guess 10k players is adequete.


That would put it at number #11 on Steam's top played games right now. I'd say that's more than adequate for such an old game.

Yes, you should buy both. You can buy them from battle.net.

just get yourself a console if you haven't and get Diablo III on 360 or PS3


Why the hell would anyone ever do that? Do you love throwing your money away on crappy games?


Because it's not crap compared to the PC version, that's why.


this man or woman speaks the truth, D3 is better unless you like playing D2 by yourself or better yet with bots nagging you to buy something on their website.

If you have not played Diablo 2 before, your online experience won't be great. Long gone are the days of anyone actually taking their time through the game. Everyone just rushes to Hell and high levels to play new builds and farm.

Not to mention the insane number of bots that either farm items or grind levels for players. I guarantee a huge portion of that 11k players aren't actually players.

there's good and bad to that, the bots are extremely efficient and you can leech from them for 100s of Baalruns.

they also neglect to pick up uniques and rares at times, probably because they already have them. and after each Chaos-Baalrun they dump 100s of thousands of gold on the ground.

I have been the only human player for 100s of Baalruns, and the rewards from leeching were epic (XP, gold and item-wise).

also, most ppl now play private games to avoid the spam.

so basically you must be new to Diablo 2, or you're just disliked, if you haven't made any human friends to run with in 10 years.

Lastly, most people who still play Diablo 2 are absolute experts, only Hell matters.

And master race players don't even play vanilla, they play Median XL Ultimatum which isn't hosted by Blizzard.
