hardcore duels and pks a lot of ppl use hacks like auto aim and auto tele, and also a hack makes you crash ur d2 so you just sit there for 10 secs and die. ppl practiced on softcore, so really having a fake hc duel mode is just as superficial as having a softcore dueler. likewise if you cant see specs, then the forums, talk, rumors -it just speeds up the inevitable. it too is fairly superficial, a feature that is paper thin because all that knowledge will eventually b out. so just have it from the start. besides, ur actually afraid of ppl with the same spec abd gear as you? if that is what draws you away from pvp then ur a coward, u dont want competition.
