Diablo II: Lord of Destruction Forum  /  Diablo 2 randomizer races?

Hello everyone!
I've been in contact with the SpeedGaming community (https://www.twitch.tv/speedgaming) recently. They are hosting races of games where up to four players race the same game against each other at the same time. Popular examples are Metroid and Zelda. What I especially like are the randomizer races. Since I'm a big fan of Diablo 2 I asked them about D2 races. It seems that they don't host any Diablo events right now but they are open to offers should there be interest and enough players.

I recently created and released the Diablo 2 Randomizer (https://www.reddit.com/r/diablo2/comments/e3izb1/diablo_2_randomizer_v01_released_link_in_comments/). I would love to see races between players using the randomizer. It could make for some really entertaining playthroughs with a mix of skill and luck.

Although I didn't test it myself I read that there is a "seed" parameter for Diablo 2, where you can set the map seed when starting a new game. Using this should (in theory) provide a fair race for all players.

Is anyone else interested in this kind of race? Would there be players to do it?

Main random at d2 is runes, not maps, so "seed" will not help at all. Only way to race without "random" is run without runewords, but dunno will someone accept to do it.


Sounds like something to look into
