Well PvP was retarded and unbalanced in D2 except "Melee duels" what was mainly 2 waraxe Grief, Beast baba vs Smiter.

Yes there were the so-called 'cookie cutter' builds but the point is that hc was possible with almost any build. And if you wanted to get high magic-find on the cookie cutters you had to compromise and take a few more risks.

There were more risks than just burning souls. Extra-fast lightning enchanted springs to mind. Especially if playing a more risky build.
Farming on a sorceress was never 'easy' (as in guaranteed to stay alive) unless you worked with a partner such as a skeleton necromancer.

I found most of the fun in PvP was in the level 9 hardcore duels. Nobody had great gear, it was a test of skill. And you stay dead so you have to make another one when you lose and get more gear.

Perhaps Median could use hardcore mode to have a completely different set of rules to bring some of that to the game. Just a thought.

there have been 3 ironman duel events in the last 3 weeks. small tg fee, decent tg payout depending on your bid in.

They are bugged at the moment. Tell chuck which built you are interested in and he will tell you how to skill it.

Since I wrote that I have only just noticed that Fumbles sent me some TG in the mail. Many thanks!


I will have a look at the online server tournaments and see how they work. Since I play SP it may not be easy to play.
If not I will send the TG back of course.
