Diablo II: Lord of Destruction Forum  /  I put together world record history

Our WR history through the statistics page is useless so couple months ago I started a project and started writing down the history. Some automatically, a lot manually.

There are categories where data is incorrect from the Teo incident: https://www.speedrun.com/d2lod/thread/mankr I'm not exactly sure which categories are impacted by this.

It would be nice if we could come together as community to fix our history. Let me know if you want to help contribute to the history document. I'll use the data from the document to put together fancier history page on diablo.run as well.

Report any mistakes you see in this thread or message me on Discord.

A very minor correction: I was the first one to finish a Normal P8 SC Paladin, and as such my time technically was the WR until it was beaten by either Blazer or Bender (I can't remember who of them specifically did it first).


Thanks, it's another category with broken data, because of the Teo incident. There's a lot of them. I think all of normal categories. I thought only p1 initially, but I guess it's all of them.

The runs with broken data have their "date played" set to 5 Apr 2020 which makes them kind of easy to spot. It is difficult to figure out the correct dates for them though. Any idea when you ran this? I added the run to the history document already though.

I've been just keeping "5 Apr 2020" as the date if I'm unable to figure out what the actual date was. It's a date placeholder.

Hey, nice job with putting history together. I added some missing P1 normal records to the list:

Normal P1 SC Assassin
My 1:26:33 was never a World Record, that's 3rd place run
2015(I believe) 1:25:43 by Teo // this run is unfortunately gone, but it's one of the most iconic runs of all time when sorc was above 1:30
30 Oct 2018 1:24:13 by blackdeathdoom (https://www.twitch.tv/videos/329206680)
Bender's 1:21:19 run is from 22 Aug 2019

P.S. True Barbarian knows his comrades deeds so I'm challenging Mekalb to supplement barb history.
P.S.2 Twitch shows specific date when you hover over it in video section. I initially thought it was impossible to get w/o API requests, might help.

Thank you so much, BokserKabaty! I made these changes:

Normal P1 SC Assassin
Added/removed the runs you mentioned. I couldn't find any videos for first sub 1:30 Teo assassin, but I did find this: https://www.reddit.com/r/speedrun/comments/2v9aok/wr_diablo_2_lod_any_12543_by_teo/ and I'm referencing that in the history. It also mentions the Nightfall run before it, but I feel like that might have been a HC run. Sadly I think video of the Nightfall run is also missing. Does anyone know the date of Nightfall 1:34:39?

Normal P1 HC Assassin
Added missing runs, fixed the dates. Removed Bender's 1:17:21 run, because Meow had the WR.

Normal P1 HC Druid
Added 29 Feb 2020 1:26:25 by 327.

Normal P1 SC Paladin
Added the missing runs you mentioned.

Normal P1 HC Paladin
Added 6 May 2019 1:44:20 by Bender.

Normal P1 SC Amazon, Normal P1 HC Amazon
Added all the Bender runs.

I think we have a lot of missing data for P1 Druid, both HC and SC. If someone is a good speed historian then let me know and let's fill it with data.

Anyone got a good idea how to handle early SC/HC separation? Early on SC/HC runs competed with each other, but putting together the history now and filling the Nightfall HC runs into SC seems odd. Yet when I remove them from the history then suddenly it seems like there's a lot less competition and overall makes less sense.

Edit: Nevermind, found the Nightfall 1:34:39 run and it's from Jan 2 2016

Thanks BKSilv3r, 327 and everyone for helping me keep it up to date. All fresh WR's are included. Old records are looking better now too. There still seems to be missing data. Could use more help with P1 Normal Assassin and Druid. If you have links to missing records then please post them here or message me on Discord.

Thanks to a lot of help from BKSilv3r the other P1 normal categories look complete.

Just letting you know, looking through some old vods of Teo's early records, there seem to be some pretty big gaps there - for example his first Normal SC Necro record in the file seems to actually be second place to an earlier record from Llama. I'll have a look into it more when I get some time (or if someone wants to do it sooner!), fortunately he and Llama have been pretty good at not deleting (or setting to private) old runs so should be fairly easy to trace.
