Seems like alot of people are getting banned.

I wonder if it will change the d2 economy since I bet alot of of accounts had dupe currency as well as high gear.

thoughts?


Economy..what economy? when your as poor as I am there is no Economy. Last night after we beat Diablo in normal HC, I knoticed my gloves had turned red, yea...those bad boys I had picked up in Act1 from the den of evil had now broke. I have no idea about the economy, I'm to poor to trade on it right now.

Ohh yeah man. this will make the new ladder progress much slower and at the pace its supposed to be. for non ladder it will make elite items that legit players were using worth tons more. anyone who has worked their way to the top will now feel the rewards.

it won't affect the economy, dupers will find a way, and bots can still be used without any ban taking place.

I hear yah man. I was just playing and i dueled for some fun against a freind I had made who had just as bad equipment as me, and after every duel those gosh darned gloves fell apart! the pathetic thing was i didnt have enough gold to repair so eventually i elected to allow all of my garbage to breakdown and it turned into a huge fist fightning moshpit! hehe doing a whopping 2-5 damage the duels lasted forever. But once i whipped out my big guns prayer aura man I was unbeable. Healing a massive 7 hp made me nearly invincible :thumbsup: [/OF]

No i dont feel the economy will fluctuate any. but who am I to say after all, whats economy?? :confused:

Edit: O WAIT SH4DoVV WAS BANNED!!! AHHH WERE ALL GONNA DIE!! They goes all the hr's in all of USwest :scared:

Since every good gears are gone, i assume those unqiue will actually worth something now, like shako of those type. :D

It means no more dupe, but i must assume hackers may want to create it again.

Runes can no longer be currency, i may say the currency is gold!

What economy thru? U mean the value of the items?
Actually, it's changed after the ladder is reset, but I love that, I'm using all magical items for my MF-blizz sorcy which is 36 lvl rite now. However, previously when I reached this level , many unqiues are already worn on her.

I found that It's really interesting on wearing magical items , and seeing the players taking all the magical drops.
