for me, it was more like a awesome general moments for an entire year, back in 2003, playing D2/LOD in a LAN-party, with some folks at work, during work-time !.
yup. we averaged about 2 to 3 hours a day of play time for about a year, of course on the Boss's dime, and to this day, they still never knew it. -nuthin' like gettin paid to play.
I got a good one. Happened today while I was negotiating some trades. I hosted a game offering an ist rune for someone's Anni. And so I get these two Pallys, and the first one shows me his and it's completely average, so I ask to see the other guys. This second guy though seemed pretty anxious and he hit the green check right away thinking I'd agree to it. Fortunately I didn't cause the Anni was actually Mephisto's Soulstone.
Naturally I called him a fucking idiot and told him to take a hike. I couldn't tell what must have been going through this guy's mind to think he could actually pull a ruse like that off. He was either trying to be funny or he thought he was terribly clever. Probably the latter though cause if he was trying to be funny, I imagined he might have stuck around while we all laughed at him.
The first time a good unique dropped for me - shako, then another - war travs - and the first time I learned the market of Diablo... sold a shako for 5 soj's, then bought one for 4 sojs, did that until i had 10 soj's and bought a unique champion sword... and of course the time i got my etheral arreats face with 675 deg (high def because of ethereal) stolen from me... did not play again for 5 years, just started again last month... oh and a recent moment, had gheed's charm in hand... but full inventory due to mistaken pick up grrrrrr!!!!
