I played this game several years ago VERY hardcore, but eventually quit to play WoW. After I had to quit WoW due to moving and losing my connection, I started back playing D2. My friend comes over every Sunday (except this one, but he should be over tomorrow) and we LAN PC's and play D2.
Except, we play a better version of D2. It's a mod called **** Unleashed
. It totally revamps the game and is the best mod I know of for D2, by far. It greatly enhances the game. After you play it, it's almost impossible to go back. For more in-depth information, check out those forums or The HU Encyclopedia
