29.06.2020 - Happy 20 Anniversary Diablo II

Today our favorite game turns 20!!!!

Some days after the game went out, I went to a "bazar" and bought myself a cut single-player only copy of the game and went home to install it to my "gaming rig" of 256MB RAM and Petnium 4. Huge beast back then. The jouney started. Me and my friend started playing one character and taking turns so we do this 24/7. Our pick? - A Necromancer with a Polaxe, killing Diablo on Normal after 100 deaths and 1h10m of fighting. Glorious days.

So how did Blizzard respond to the 20th Anniversary?
