Hello everyone! I'm not really new to the Diablo community but I think now is a good time to get involved. Days of peaking in on rumors of D3 are over, for a while at least. I've been around Diablo commuities since the release of the original Diablo game, which I thought was excellent.
I have been playing video games since... well... does anyone here remember the Intellivision? My first computer was a Tandy TRS 80. We finally got a Game Stop store out here in the country where I live. Uh-oh! I've played many games over the years, but I find I liked games like Quake, Doom, Diablo, WarCraft, StarCraft, Mech Commander, Mech Warrior, Medieval Total War, EverQuest, Outpost, and a host of other games of their genres. I do have a particular taste for the RPG type.
I would really like to thank Blizzard for taking on a new challenge with the Diablo series. With all the problems on bnet's Diablo servers, most of which were the fault of the players themselves by their relentless hacking, duping, and bot production, there were times that I was surprised they didn't just shut down the Diablo servers. I would not have blamed them either. I had to straighten out my own computer three times after rude encounters with players on bnet. I can only imagine the frustration of the technicians that had to constantly be removing these things and innoculating the servers against their presence.
