I imagine that's entirely reliant on whether or not game-breaking exploits are discovered. (i.e. extreme experience exploits or 1-shotting ubers with some bugged ability interaction).


If they program more pages in the stash, let me say 20 for example, I think a wipe will be required. One hard thing in the old median was the shared stash, It was impossible to use in ladder or online games... Damn, we don't need shared stash, BUT MORE OAGES. 1 is nearly useless, 20 maybe decent


also means you may be able to overfload your charakter with informations, so you may rollback your char using this as an exploit to dupe

I've mulled through the notes and the comments but can't seem to find the answer to the question of what version of LoD we should be running for Σ. Any help from the devs? Want to make sure I'm ready for when it drops.

Not a dev but afaik Sigma will work only with the Launcher, so no matter the patch version.

A fresh install of Diablo 2 from battle.net will be ideal. Then grab the new version of our lancher, which will be posted on release, and it will set everything up for you.

Great job! Well done!

At first I was bit sad about some nerfs but than I realized that those are not nerfs but game balancing changes which I trust you completely were necessary.

Thank you for your hard work!
I am even more happy because my boss agreed that I can take one day off on Monday so I can enjoy Sigma even more :)

Thanks for the hard work.
From my point of view as a player who knows quite some mechanics but totally lacks skill, the changes really encourage me to improve my playstyle.

I really like the rework/changes on o-skills and look forward to further ones.
With Flash already buffed, I will try a Lightning Druid right from the start.

I don't know how prepared you are, so I'm going to ask

Isn't launcher download going to be flooded? I presume it would be much better to release the launcher, then enable server realms at a time rather than letting thousands of people come in to download at once and throttle each other

Maybe I'm thinking too much into it, but would appreciate a response

Every time the launcher got an upgrade, I had more and more struggles for installing and making it work without crashes and freezes. So I really hope you've tested the new launcher out as well.

Anyway, thanks for your hard work SB! I know you guys are doing your best to make this all go smoothly!

Yeah, I also kind of want to uh... "test" that Sigma runs properly before launch, honest :roll:
