    First of all I have to say sorry for not being active on the forums.

    now that, that is out of the way, I have been playing D2 for a while now but I never tried HC, I have some high lvl SC characters. But im wondering If I should play HC, I dont know if I can take the stress of almost dying. Maybe the reason why I dont play HC is that my freinds are all SC. Any info on HC will be nice. Try and persuade me :)

    OH another reason why I havnt done HC, I have no HC items.

    my chars SC
    lvl 97 fire/lightning mf sorc 750%
    lvl 96 bowazon
    lvl 81 s/s barb

    I play on USWest
    acct - sgt.chaotic

    What, that softcore is for pansies? Man, whatever you wanna say Spike...

    I play(ed) both, for different reasons. HC for the sake of really "playing the game", going through the story, questing, all that stuff. SC for dueling, and PKing.

    your first couple hc characters will die. it's one of those unwritten rules for hc newbies. you will learn quickly though. i will never go back to sc... after playing hc i see no point to playing sc, the game has no purpose.

    i recently started over in d2. i have one character now, a level 40 hc barbarian on USWest. other hcwest people include haite, spike, and charly. i don't think any of us are very active in d2 anymore though.

    It's probably unrealistic to say that I play at all any more. If my account is gone, then I'm pretty much done with the game. I'll just try to re-register the account name one of these days for use in other games.

    And if you're like Jake, all your characters will die.

    hmm, no. i had 3 characters die. my first and second chars (barb and sorc) and my 3rd char. my 3rd char (level 92 sorc) died because of my DSL crapping out when taking hell shenk. i had 5 other characters that did just fine.

    my first character, an amazon, died in the arcane sanc.
    then a bunch more died
    then i got a necro up to 50 something, and he died cause of lag
    then i had a bunch more characters get up to the 50's and die because of lag so i stopped


    i also felt guilty cause i kept taking all of charly's, spike's, and haite's stuff and then dying

    I lost a couple chars, then gave up because losing characters is lame.

    bah! DAoC is a crappy game. it's all achiever based. Shadowbane is gonna rape it. dOOd, when shadowbane comes out you should play with us... you and the other pc guys in the clan since it will be cross-platform.
