This is my friend's topic, i was at his house when he made this. So i will just clarify for him. You DO know that if you click the gem button enough times it will say "Perfect Gem Activated", right? Has anyone actually landed on it and joined a game?
Believe what you want to believe. In actual fact it has no bearing on anything related to the playing of the game. It is useful to mark spots in the chat stream. Beyond that it's just a button.
Blizzard has said the following:
"The chat gem is fuctioning perfectly and exceeding all our expectations."
Remember this, while you're furiously clicking away on that button, you're NOT questing, mf-ing, dueling, trading, or anything useful in or out of the game of Diablo 2.
Now go start a thread about the Standard of Heros.:laughing:
Click on the gem some more... You might get a message saying "Moo moo" or something like that IIRC... What does it do? NOTHING as far as the client side is concerned... Perhaps it does something server side... No one knows but Blizzard...
