If the goblins are the main draw of this update, and they're not gonna be available on SP, then those of us who play on single player can just ignore the patch altogether. I disagree with denying a part of your audience new content, even though it's already right there in the game files, just because of the way they choose or need to play(offline vs online). That's it. I'll stop now, sorry if I sounded angry, I just dislike this type of approach to content updates. It's a free mod and at the end of the day it's the devs' choice. I just wanted to share my opinion.
but what's the point of a loot patch in SP when all items and chars will become incompatible in 2.0?
Not to be like that but.. whats the point playing until full release of 2.0 then ? Goblins wont drop anything we havnt seen anyways.
Ladder reset, the entire point of ladders/online is what makes it fun. Racing with others and see whose rng is better... ;p SP is different, you can legit dupe and dupe all items infinitely. The better question is, what is the point of playing singleplayer... If for some reason you absolutely cannot play online, I feel sorry but at that point I would just find another game/hobby tbh, this is not the only game in the entire world
How very compassionate, I only played this game for 18 years, I'm just gonna drop it right now and forget it exists cause I can't play on a private server of a popular mod, great advice tyvm
Also love the fact that you mention duping like it's what everyone does, I do a self wipe every large update(so 1.x, but not 1.7.x), never duped anything, always played legit, yet I'm excluded and counted as a cheater cause I get shit ping on TSW
Really makes me want to join the community

Me have sick inet too but... ok, i guess i can wait some more time without new patch (thankfully mod have very wide content that i haven't tried/tested/done... for me just one example is oskill builds, with fact that i like to play ssf only - that's alot) to get a huge one later in exchange (like that was with M17, then with Sigma...)

Later on D2 Maniacs server went online and was hosting this mod and it became somewhat popular.
Post LAZ era got this mod slowly towards realm play oriented and 2.0 might be realm only like other Diablo 2 mods such as Path of Diablo or Project Diablo.
Diablo 2 as a base game got designed primarily with realm play in mind. Even in 2000, where broadband internet access was rather scarce outside of just a few countries (mainly U.S.). SP was a good addition to the game and enabled people to enjoy it without internet access, this made sense in 2000 as that era was dominated by single player computer games. Right now tho? Not really, almost every game that comes out is focused on multiplayer experience.
