im quiet curious about these marketing plans, they seem kinda crucial
to get maximum publicity theres so many possibilities to reach alot people, i for myself am gonna post the trailer and make advertising to a german community forum that can reach quiet alot of people

the real question is how do you get attention besides posting stuff on reddit
maybe contacting some streamers to play the game --> D2 streamers and maybe general streamers
something that sounds dumb but could reach ALOT people would be getting a post to hot on 9gag, which tbh the community could help out in a community project making a post reach hot

maybe we should make a post about how the community can help to spread the popularity of the game and share ideas

Well, reset or not, in my opinion, is not that important to me, "am i having a good time with the game?" is another thing, as I consider it way better than having people telling you how good the game actually is.

With that being said, I can feel the sentimentality of those who wish it. But at the same time, I ask myself that question for the last two ladders and the answer is still negative.

The community is great though, with people from all walks of life gathering together for something they love. We can build on that. Shutting down the spirit of these people signifies the decline of enthusiasm of those who were, are and will be contributing much for the same objective.

I often ponder "How the hell, with a great game like this, sitting on our servers for more than 3 months, free to play, great community, many servers around the world, have very limited polarities, just as ironic when a guy who is streaming on twich right now, is doing a d2 vanila sorceress with build came out about the same time of the dinosaurs?"

there needs to something more significant than minor hc pking events after the first month or two of a ladder reset. There's literally a 4 month downtime with almost nothing going on inbetween. I'm sure people can come up with a lot of creative shit.

Solution: balance mod to be hardcore viable for all ubers; wham, ladder lifetime expanded 100000000%

In vanilla the sc ladder lasted like 2 days but the hc journey would go for months. I feel like the same could be true for Median, there just needs to be a better environment to foster thr growth of a hardcore community (which, imo was the greatest feature of D2)

With how power scaling works right now It still only takes a few days of solid playing to get to the "wall" in HC where everything becomes scary (Duncraig +). Could easily see adjustments to HC viability only scaling the season to 3-4 at most weeks for players dedicating themselves to it. I don't think it'd be as big a fix as you think. It would certainly help/be nice though.
