Yep. That's the point of Rogue Likes, to be damned difficult.

Ehm. What's difficult about Diablo? You just lvl up, beat up monsters, sometimes you die... if you play Hardcore, then yeah - that's difficult.

Diablo one, is damn near impossible unless you get lucky and get some good items cause enemies dont respawn so you pretty much have to kill everything, and the enemies are always in overwhelming groups that almost always kill you in ten seconds flat


oh and PS Diablo three has beens announced there is a bunch of screenshots of it at this url

I'm not sure what Diablo you were playing, but Diablo 1 isn't that hard. Play smart, lure the enemies away and kill them in small numbers.

Diablo in 17:38. I don't know how many segments (saves/reloads) exactly but that's pretty impressive. No matter how hard a game can be you can still beat it easily with proper training.

Okay, end of useless shit. Just wanted to share the vid :P

As far as I know, this video wasn't made in a single run? Is that right?

Sorry to revive an old thread, but no-one posts her anyway... :)

Not sure about this replay (looks legit, but quite lucky), but there can be dirty work afoot even with single-segment...
Diablos levels are generated based on the date of your system clock when you start a new game. In fact, a certain date was found (probably through decompiling) in which all the levels had stairs generated close enough to skip the level completely, and where the necessary books were generated. This in turn made the run easy, as seen in this 9 minute speedrun: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cN0bMhCj1Mg
Its akin to starting a doomrl game on nightmare where all the stairs are gauranteed to be next to one another, and a thermonuclear bomb is gauranteed to be found close to the stairs before level 25.



Re: The original post - Diablo is an extraordinarily difficult game if a player tries to play a single game with a single character. Essentially there just isnt enough experience per level to get a character strong enough to get through the caves and hell.
In fact, only a tiny handful of extremely hardcore diablo teams have managed to finish the game under hardcore rules without creating a new game with an existing character. They refer to this challenge as ironman, and its one of the hardest well-accepted gaming challenges there is - certainly harder than eternium man in adom. It\'s also bucketloads of fun, and if anyone wants to play ironman diablo with me, they should give me a PM. :)

Diablo becomes the ridiculously easy game we all remember when a player creates a new game with an existing character.

While you do tempt me to pull out my old discs, I'll wait to play ironman Diablo with you until we have ironman DiabloRL. ;)

Bug abuse and other shits ...not worth to talk about this video.

I doubt it. I bet there are less people that finished Eternium man rather than those who finished Diablo the way you describe.

* Madtrixr doesn't care much for Diablo.

Now Diablo II...
* Madtrixr loves Diablo II, and is planning to buy the Battle chest at some point (pirating will not let you play online.)

I wouldn't mind trying this out at some point. Need to refind my old discs though.
