Ouch, SC2 sounds harsh. Never played that one, stopped after Warcraft 3 and Diablo 2 up until now. Though as far as channels and communication goes, Diablo 3 hasn't really improved much in that regard, has it?
Yeah, I think this misunderstanding she caused was enough for me to make me realize it was no longer worth it. And yeah, was an online acquaintance, but the distance wasn't terribly bad--only Nevada. Basically she was just being extremely literal about the "not dating" phrase, even her husband thought that was odd. Luckily he didn't seem angry about the whole thing, which in itself is an improvement over what usually happens in that regard...
So yeah, just need to get my emotions in order and move on. I've had enough bitterness about such things in the past to last me a lifetime already.
Those gems sound useful. My jeweler level is only as far as Radiant triangle gems currently, and that's already too damn expensive. Bleh.
Well, at least it's not as bad as Starcraft 2 where you could not play on different servers at all unless you bought a copy. Friend in Europe? You're screwed. I was rather annoyed at battle.net 2.0's lack of functions, but since 1/8 my posts are in that Sc2 thread, I feel the need to say no more. Diablo 3's bnet is far better in at least you can jump around. That I am grateful for.
Drama... well, honestly it took me a while to think of anything to say. Is this person an online acquaintance? Otherwise I find it weird that they could hide something so huge like being already married. Usually people make a pretty big thing out of being married. Well, ok, there was this one instance where I didn't know a classmate was married, and then at the very end she introduces me to her husband. I'm just like "whoops, sorry..." Yea, hugging someone's wife too closely is awkward to say the least.
In any case, just realize that this was gonna be a dead end anyways, and it was better off concluded sooner than later. (Yea, I know, it's easy to say these things online without actually knowing you so feel free to disregard it) But if I know anything, it's that some people aren't worth the time.
Back to D3, I also have a stockpile of radiant/square gems in my stash that aren't going to sell so in case you need that...
Huh. California here as well. And yeah, I was around since Diablo 1, but I guess the server situation then was because of inferior internet technology. Maybe. I don't pretend to understand it, really.
The drama happened over the game, actually--the girl I like plays as well, but she had the nerve to tell me she wasn't dating the other guy she was playing with, so when she discovered my continued interest in her (which was only mentioned to the other guy involved due to what she said), she flipped. Turns out they were married. Bah. It's mostly avoidance at this point.
The worst part about the online thing is that whenever they decide to stop supporting the game, we're just fucked, whereas for most games, once you buy the game you can play it forever regardless of what happens to them. For d3, it's almost like we're just renting out a space on bnet, which is totally lame.
So how goes you in the game? I think you'll be planning for some dps beyond 90 on your weapon by now?
