When ladder playing jspers think they are legit. lol


just because some people trade on jsp doesn't make them not legit. Now if they are botting and using jsp for profit, that would be not legit. But, why am I wasting my breath quoting a mutli? LMAO. Talk about not being legit!
No trading takes place on jsp. It is all buying and selling items for a currency. A currency which was at one point or another purchaced for real money, and violates Blizzard’s EULA. As you know (pathetic) it’s a currency that is used at the beginning of every new ladder season giving cheating jsp users an advantage over legits whom actually do the work to aquire their gear and items to trade for other gear they need. Jsp is 100% categorically pay to play/win. Your arguement is as hollow as your accusations.
Maybe someone should list a few reasons why jsp/bots/this/that/the other is harmful to the community and maybe retort some facts and reasoning behind it. It appears as though people very differently about these issues; as an example look at the divide of people who want "the wall" and those who don't. Blizzard has had an ear for the community and I think it would be wise to use our voice to say something constructive. Instead of the same old argument that "bots arent bad, or bots are bad" maybe we can organize some lists and compare the two.
What Blizzard should consider is releasing ladder only items to nonladder and create new blue, rare, unique and rune words nonladder only—items that pvp players would desire—as well, increase nonladder drop rates for everything. This would in turn draw botting away from the ladder and onto nonladder. Everyone wins.

This doesnt change anything, baaa your genius idea turn bots to ladder only lol
Do you understand how economy works!? If game has decent population, bad drop = big demand = bots, hacks, resellers, scammers, shops ect ect

Solutions:
1) do nothing - game stay with botters, hackers, cheaters, scammers, jsp, p2w

2) ban all bots, hacks, cheats, 3rd party - even if Blizzard ban all (even private ones), cheaters will make new hacks/bots again, again ect ect. Perpetuum mobile - they banned all cheaters --> hacks/bots become more rare and desirable, hackers will control the market with new and better hacks then selling these hacks again, profitable for Blizzard (probably selling more keys, but not quaranteed) win/win for Blizz/hackers?

3) big buff for drop rates - everything is ez accessible, bots/resellers/jsp/even hackers are minimalized (no more big profits), purists crying because nn 24/7h mindless grind everything - which has nothing to do with difficulty, casuals can enjoy this game because Diablo game is about enjoy slaying mosters and finding nice loot, not finding impossible rare loot or collecting very rare items; one real and best solution Imo.

4) remove trade: unacceptable by players (not communnity because community in d2 not exist anymore), no1 wants this, but possible

PvP Nld gear doesnt make sense too - bored after 1 day of playing. PvP in D2 is fun becase u can take all yours sh... and imba items like Grief/Hoto/CoA/Spirit/Eni and out gear some nerds/lammers on public, pk&bm them, watch how they crying and talking about how it was ez and all sh... many hours :D. Imo PvP special gear change nothing, GM/Rules PvP is huge minority so who cares!?!?! Game needs more OP items like Enigma, and big buff for awesome, but rarely used skills like Frozen Orb/Hydras, so new refreshed meta!

Real thing what we need (from huge list) atm is CoolDown in Teleport, and turn gameplay to be more based on FRW, thinking, panning and waiting for one good stomp cuz another one is not possible by CD, tactics; not based by just skipping all build veriety to the one Enigma based and skipping ~90% of the content with bad gear, but with "awesome" imba tele, because mindless tele spam is so awesome, 24/7 stomp spam is awesome, being human bot is so awesome, decreasing gameplay/build variety on many levels is so awesome LOL. Most Diablo 2 modders learned that leasson long time ago, time for Blizzard!
Career jspers crying that I came up with an idea that would ruin their great fools gold rush... again?

Tele, spam hammers, tele, spam hammers, tele, spam hammers, tele, spam hammers. Good job, you slowed down bots from getting to the throne by 15 seconds. Completely altering the economy and the way the game is played. Game is now fixed. Genius.

When really bad players want Blizzard to buff or nerf skills so that they can pretend to be good at the game. Smh.

Remove trade! Brilliant! D3 much?
Endless grind is not that what makes game difficult, it only makes game less enjoyable, boring, less accessible for new comers. Maybe it was fun 15-20 years ago, where gaming industry was in stone age and Diablo II was only one viable Arpg, but not nowadays. If you don't give players what they want, most of them just stop playing, some just buy it on jsp/other 3rd party shop/seller or just run bots/cheats selling by hackers.
Sorry, but nowadays, Players respect their time, eg I preffer spend my time in BW/SC2/WC3 or another game than just be human bot and grind the same locations over 9 000+ times or even a lot more and using two or three the same spammable skills lol, its just big waste of my time; ofc PvM is fun if is new, fresh, sometimes I can grind some areas 10-100, even 500 times, but seriously not that astronomic times what is needed to find top end gear or PvP gear, I don't talk about insane rares like Claws 3ls 3mb 3wb fools ed 2sox or Circs 2sk 20fcr 30frw str/dex @ life 2sox... ect ect LoL.
If Blizzard stay with that outdated mechanics and will not implement QoL which fit to todays standards (bigger stash, charm inv, better char screen, auto gold pickup, keyb run key, ilvl show, break points tables in game ect ect) Im sure that remaster will die very fast because players will not buy and want play that hard mechanical and archaic game, no1 will learning again how Diablo II works, its waste of time, but I dont care anymore.
Ladder is about the near endless grind. Don’t like it, don’t play the game, and certainly don’t support things that take away from, hinder or harm those who enjoy or love the ladder end game and the results they work so hard to obtain.
