no after .12 iirc they added mod support its servers that can lead to problems unless you get proper permissions to run the server and agree to not make money off the game itself

Not sure if this is directed to me (or what it even means), but i read around and i guess mods to blizzard games are generally accepted and tolerated by blizzard (but not always). 

Turns out realm hosting may be the illegal one:
From modsbylaz:
Does Median XL have a realm?
Since the Vivendi vs. BnetD lawsuit, realm emulation is considered illegal. For this reason, I do not provide an official realm for Median XL. Certain third parties may offer Median XL realms, but these are not supported by Modsbylaz and may use lower quality hacked versions of the mod.

You didn't answer the question...
I heard the D2 Maniacs realm is free of cheaters and offers the official version of Median XL. Note that I do not own or take part in this realm; any questions should go to the realm owner.

To me this illegal bullshit has always been just Laz's paranoia, this lawsuit was in 2002, when D2 battle net was at one of it's highest points, and the reason for the lawsuit was related to piracy (as it enabled people to play D2 online without CD-keys). Also, this was issued to the developer(s) of bnetd, not hosters whatsoever.

Since the forum's death in 2012 I've been promoting realm play because why the fuck not? at least if they demand me I'll be on the news. Yes I've been threatened by PM here and there (mainly after TG creation) and my answer has always been the same: yolo.

Obviously he would always maintain this stance on the public interwebs because he thought it might harm his chances of getting hired as a game dev.

And why not? It's a weakly dominant strategy over the other case.

If that was the reason, he would be trying too hard. Either way that's none of my business. Still, I blame Laz because if he hadn't been this paranoid about realmplay, our community would be twice as big today, if not more.

D2 graphics > D3 graphics if you take away the bs filters and lighting d3 uses to hide the shitty models anyway.

Cough I was joking cause macro doesn't exist and D3 is nowhere near as great as this mod. Cough
