I Already AM playing TL2 - the beta is awesome. It also supports up to 6 players in a single game (and can be modded for up to 32 players in a single game if you want).
However, not everyone will like it for one big reason:
The game is 100% moddable, online and offline. And Runic Games will not be hosting Secure Character Servers like Blizzard does for Diablo 2 Closed Realms and Diablo 3.
Anyone can create a character in TL2 and GIVE THEM any weapon or armor or item in the game and go online with them and play in games with people playing legit and ruin the whole experience for everyone.
So, unless you ONLY play with friends, you might join a game with someone who maxed out their character and is 1-shotting everything in the game.
However, since the whole game is 100% moddable, the community can create their OWN MAPS, bosses, levels, etc...
So, there is good and bad. But the TL2 community will have to police itself since it's going to be so open and unrestricted.
Just something to consider.
