    ShadowWarlock,

    i don´t know, it´s strange blizzard didn´t write it in their patchinformation, really strange. How can we tell if it´s right?

    I tell for sure all information there aren´t right. This info is bullshit: - Gold sharing among party members has been removed.

    I just tried it and gold still shares between party members, so there is nothing that says the rest of info should be correct.

    Bullshit text/info, or should i say, bullshit Blizzard who don´t know what they talking about....really strange.

    F*cking b*tch, how can you be smarter than me? Check the line:

    - Gold sharing among party members has been removed.

    and then go out on bnet and test it, you get money when someone else pick up gold (if you are in a party and in the same area).

    The conclusion: Gold sharing does still exist!

    Go to the store and buy a new brain assh*le!

    Korittke,

    well, i haven´t said the whole patch information is fuc|<ed up and incorrect. But, if there is faults in patch.txt who can say the rest is believable?

    I think it´s really lame/pathetic/noobie/unprofessional of blizzard to give out the wrong info, it´s really pathetic.

    BTW, you say: who cares? Look in this string and you see some people who cares about the information or it wouldn´t be such discussion about this gambling issue, where blizzard tells two things which are a direct opposite at one site to another (official sites off course). At least I want real information or they shouldn´t write any.


    And ShadowWarlock, grow up! I´ve just proved you wrong.

    And I just looked at blizzards website about the 1.09 patch, and I don't see it saying anything about re-enabling gambling uniques, like shadowwarlock has. And you guys wanna hear some bullsh.t?

    Our Battle.net team has determined that these messages may appear as a result of players using “add-on programs.†We suggest that users refrain from using any sort of “add-ons†or run any other programs while playing Diablo II or any of our other games, as they are not supported and can cause undocumented problems while playing on Battle.net.

    These programs include utilities such as “map-hacks†and many other different programs that can alter or “enhance†game play. Please note that we do not encourage the use of map-hacks or any other type of hacking utilities; and we are unable to assist players who are affected when using these types of programs.
    So, blizzard is trying to blame their new software on maphacks and other types of programs?

    Satans-Everything,

    well i don´t know what to believe about blizzards patch fake info, it looks like they don´t write all changes in the patchinformation. The information ShadowWarlock wrote about does exist, look at your patch.txt in your diablo-directory. But all info there aren´t right, as the gold-share as i mentioned above. I really don´t know what to believe...

    And about the other stuff you wrote, was it from Mouspads forum? I´ve read about it there and it´s bullshit, at least the maphack part.

    Blizzard gets more and more pathetic every day....:)

    im pretty sure they disabled it because gambling sojs was and old school way of getting sojs
    i think most of thesojs that are around now are from the very first patch cuz the mods havent changed but im not sure i just know they used to gamble sojs like crazy before

    Satans-Everything,

    it´s the Long War Bow. When you gamble the Long War Bow something rolls and if you´re lucky you get a Gothic Bow and if you´re really really lucky you get a Hydra bow......and if you´re really really really lucky you get a rare Hydra bow...and so on ;)

    All items in the gamblescreen are the basic items (normal), then it´s luck if you get higher quality.

    Errr, found something out yesterday. I was gambling for a while, and something odd happened. I got a set ring.

    Cathan's something or whatever, I don't remember. I can't say you can gamble uniques, but at least set items. Maybe everyone else knew this already, oh well.

    I wouldn't want to get hopes up though, I gambled probably 1000+ rings before getting it. Not too mention, almost any set item of value is an exceptional or elite item, further reducing chances of getting something. Oh well.
