Online SSF Mode

i would normally fight to get SSF here but…
doesnt matter anymore d4 in june :slight_smile:

d2jspers can have fun together here without ssf.

But seriously, I read today that there are rumors that SSF mode is actually coming. Where does this rumor come from, was there any post regarding this, does anyone know anything more specific?

Nope, nothing official. Just some people trying to get attention

it is highly requested

i would say as much as lootfilter and currency tab

but no, not yet, theres no news on ssf for d2r

this idea for d3 would work perfectly for d2r but i think we dont need the option to convert a ssf char into a regular one

“please make a new game mode that accentuates my lack of self control to NOT trade & thus give me a new way to exhibit myself”

ps: I’m sorry for the saltiness of this comment but I can’t really see the point of another online mode when it’s already there…

SSF online tracked would be perfect for a Diablo game, it’s a mode played anyways and at least would be the cleanest ladder ranking out there. Bots wouldn’t be much of a thing, I’m sure some will but without being able to trade the items can’t be saved and go poof each wave.

I dunno D2R should improve and streamline the way people play already. Having it integrated and hopefully at some point with an improved lobby would at least help keep people playing.


Has one ever again heard something about SSF from a streamer? The big ones have sometimes a more direct line to Blizz ^^

I stream my self found grail, i have like 5 subscribers, no line to blizzard :smile:

SSF online without P8 or other players to pad the drop rate sounds like torture tbh.

That being said, I do online solo MF farm 99.99% of the time. However, I do it in a leisurely manner, not competitive. I couldn’t imagine doing SSF in a ladder capacity and giving a poop what the RNG gods bestowed upon some guy that has 18 hours a day to play.

But that’s just me.

Well i join games but i take loot only from what kill only myself outside of group.

Its still tought without trading , but not torture. Wgat is hardee is to make runewords with hrs.

its time for a ssf mode, for both ladder and NL

How about when you make a meme idea such as SSF, you just deal with how to do it within the parameters that you set for yourself instead of trying to get a company that doesn’t give a crap about you to change the game for you?

Want SSF more easily? Play offline use players 8 and static maps.
Want SSF AND Online? Deal with players 1, quit the crying, nobody made you go for a SSF build.


So, let’s hope that SFF made it into the patch for the next ladder season ^^


i am still amazed people will think that an online SSF leaderboards would be any less corrupt than the default online leaderboards.
do u guys honestly think making it so u cant trade will have ANY effect to stop people from cheating or that blizzard would enforce anti-cheating measure in this leaderboard anymore than they do in the other.

as if somehow having a bot running SSF 24/7 to level to 99 is going to be different.

stop deluding yourself.

the amount of competitiveness here is nauseating.

they are a measure of free time.

no amount of “skill” playing 16-20 hours a week is going to match a person without a job or a streamer playing 12 hours a day. let alone a bot playing 24.

what you are asking for will not have the effect u want.

and even if you DID get it… you would just complain they “its broken” and that “blizzard didn’t stop the cheaters” rather than acknowledging that your idea would never work in the first place.


It’s not just about the leaderboards, also the restriction that you just can’t trade that makes all the achievements much more valuable for you and also for others who are interested. Many people don’t see the attraction in just playing single player or playing online normally, but not trading.

It’s not without reason that SSF is so popular in PoE, although the mode has more or less the same problems you just described.

Last but not least, it doesn’t hurt anyone when such a mode is introduced, but it is a real enrichment for many. Whether you see it that way or not.


This is probably second on my wishlist. Item filters being number one. Blizzard fulfilled my previous number one which was a games list revamp and search box. That was awesome.


cant agree more

its time for a ssf mode!


Not trading doesn’t make your achievement any more meaningful. You could find 5x griffons, but be playing a WW barb and not have a Lo rune and don’t have grief. It is just another way for RNG to dictate your play, so you’re playing less efficiently that you could if you perhaps could trade off those griffs. Aka wasting time.

Lastly you say it is “real enrichment for many” meanwhile it is 8 people who would play SSF when there is a real ladder going on. And whichever of them places first in their 8 person ladder would still ONLY be the first place loser on a dead ladder with an inferior build.

Again not really against SSF being a thing, but it is a meme for individuals who like participation trophies.

You know the way they should implement SSF in D2 is by allowing you to give items to other characters you have in that ladder. Makes sense to me.

If its not about leaderboards, i dont understand why you need some restrictions. If you decide to do solo Self found and not trade, well dont trade. You dont need restriction for that. And guess what, you might not trade, but solo self found guy running bot will have a lot more stuff than you anyway.

Its like people who want solo self found ladder wants it because they cant control themself from not trading.
