As Bashiok informed us not that long ago, it was about due time for another Diablo II Ladder reset, but that had "things to figure out."
Official Blizzard Quote:
We're holding off on a reset to figure out some things. We'll let you know as soon as we do.
It seems as if whatever Blizzard had to figure out has just been figured and a ladder reset has been announced for October 25th, making this the 9th Ladder Season. Nothing else (patch?) was announced with the Ladder reset, so exactly what it is they were doing has gone completely unknown, though I am sure we'll find out soon enough.
Official Blizzard Quote:
We will be resetting the Diablo II ladder the morning of October 25.
We anticipate all Diablo II realms to be down for approximately six hours during the reset. More specific information on realm availability on the day of the reset will be posted in the Battle.net Status forum. When the ladder is reset all existing ladder characters will be converted to non-ladder. All characters and items being converted to non-ladder will remain intact, but once converted these characters will no longer have access to ladder content such as creating ladder-only rune words. For more information on ladder characters please visit the Arreat Summit Realm Character Types page.
If you're looking for some class builds, i'd recommend using Magistrate's Firebolt utility, which indexes guides simply for you.
I bet their decision is related to Diablo 3 release date. They wanted to make sure there is enough time for a new ladder before the new release. Assuming a March release, that leaves about 5 months for this ladder season. Starting a new ladder season will help people stay focused on Diablo a little more (many have gone back to D2) while they wait out the delay.
Lol, i'm honestly very disappointed I was hoping they wouldn't reset it so I could actually do a push for lvl 99, but alas It won't happen. Going from 98 - 99 in D2 nowdays is just freaking crazy if you do it like me...
100% legit, no hacks / bots or w/e
I am very curious as to why it was delayed o_O perhaps we'll know at blizzcon or something...
Its about time they reset the ladder on D2 im hoping it will flush most of the bots away but it probs won't and should hopefully attract alot of the unlucky ppl not in the d3 beta to come play D2 Again. My current ladder chars going to non ladder wont be played ill be starting again on ladder on the Eu server ill probs play a char like my name atm so u might see me in GBR chat time to time now.
the way bots work is this.
first of a ladder reset won't change anything because there's no new patch.
and even with a new patch bots are just reprogrammed in day.
the real botters out there will have a bot up and running within 24 hours running hell mf.
and its not 1 bot they run, but a 100.
so the market shall be saturated within a week.
