Hello everyone,

I just wanted to introduce myself and say that I am really glad to have found this community!

I started playing Diablo when I was around 9 years old. Back then, the game terrified me so much that I would have nightmares about it. I continued playing despite this, and it rapidly became my favorite game. I fondly remember spending my entire Friday evenings and week-ends playing on Battle.Net with my friends.

While I did play and enjoy Diablo II & III later on, I never really got into them as much as I did with Diablo back in the days. Part of it was due to my priorities and hobbies changing, but I also think that the people at Blizzard were not able to recreate a game with a similar atmosphere.

I will be turning 30 years old very soon, and for some reason I felt the urge to take the plunge back into my pre-teen years by playing some Diablo. However, I was under the impression that nobody was still playing it except for a few speedrunners, so I was getting ready to face a very solitary experience.

When I learned that some people were still playing this game more than 20 years later, it brightened my day to say the least. I might not be able to join many games due to timezone differences (I am currently residing in Hiroshima), but I will be sure to ask many questions and participate actively in the Forum.

I just rolled a new character in single player and so far I am only down to level 5, but I am having a blast. The game is just as challenging and grim as I remembered it to be!

Glad to Have you on Board,

Even Though, 'Blizzard' now Considers 'Diablo 1996' to be a (and I quote): 'A Relic from the Past', There are Still some very Dedicated Players Around.

Make sure to Join our Discord Server and I also Highly Encourage you to 'Twitch'.

If you need Help with that, I Wrote a Small Guide in the 'General Conversation' Section of the Site.

Good Luck & Welcome to the Community.

Thanks everyone!

@Tristram Relic from the past? Was it something said in an official press release, or something Jay Wilson said out of anger?

Pretty sure it was just a snarky, elitsist comment some tech guy from Blizz told him in a battlenet channel.

But coming from someone from Blizzard South (and south is exactly the direction the company went after the original team left), it doesn't mean much. Take it with a grain of salt.

D1 > D2/3

D1 is still the greatest game ever of its kind.

Agreed. Its surprising how fringe our view is though, many people would consider D2 and even... gulp... D3 to be better games. LMAO.

GL op and welcome again :)
