You can get out of that freeze by opening your belt with the tilda key "~" and then pressing "ESC" it should exit you out of the shop.

But no, quitting out of D2 and D2 crashing does not invalidate your run. If your game crashes suspiciously close to you nearly dying...... That's a different story.

Thread: More misc runs?

Started by: DoniDoni

I agree with wanting to add more categories, but I disagree that it will attract new runners. I feel like the majority of the people who will want to speedrun d2 are going to flock to Norm Any% first and branch out from there. As for adding more misc. runs, we always come back to the conclusion that not enough people consistently run them to give a reason to have them on the leaderboard. I haven't personally seen many misc. runs besides Pacifist.

Thread: Additional Categories - P8, Px, 100%, Multiplayer, seeded?

So my personal thoughts on this matter:
I don't think we should add a bucket-load of categories, it doesn't make sense, especially if they won't be used.
I'd like to offer the idea that was done in the Hyper Light Drifter; When someone wanted to make a new category there had to be 5 submitted runs. (they were submitted over discord basically) This ensured that if they were going to make a new category it wouldn't sit there empty. It also meant that the run was possible. The reason that matters is because P8 Hell HC Barb is basically impossible, same thing with Summonmancer Hell Any% (I think) It'd be a bit more work on mods unfortunately, but I think that we are due for some new, official categories for this game, but I don't think adding a ton and just hoping people run them is a good idea.
Also as a note, I'd be interested in moderating if there is an issue with workload with adding new categories.
