HOW to make a clan / guild? (BNet)
Hello all,

So, topic title. I looked everywhere on BNet with the /help command, and also checked all of Jarulf's guide, and also checked all of Diablo's manual, and even googled this around without success, but:

How do we create a clan / guild in Diablo 1, in Battle.Net?


(Also, oddly, it seems the /whisper command doesn't work anymore, after all those years? Even when whispering to myself, or to a person from my BNet's friend list.)

Just curious to know if anyone has any info on it.

I don't think clans are a thing in Diablo 1.

Back in the day they certainly were, but now, not so much :-)

The D1 populace is far too small for that sort of thing.

I still play on Bnet . closest thing to a clan I could think of would be a skype chat group.

I think he meant a integrated clan system like in many other newer games. There are not nor were there any /clan or /guild commands. In Diablo, there was previously the ability to create a channel and be the owner of that channel. This gave the owner the ability to ban people or kick them. If everyone left the channel someone else could steal it, if I recall correctly.

Oh, I see. I remember these features briefly. I think the channel owner could also delegate someone else as the owner if they had to leave, though I can't remember for certain.

@Krist, dunno about Skype, but there is a D1 community on Discord:

https://discord.gg/NeAwSEP

Discord is much better than Skype honestly. Way better interface, easier to use, and it uses less system resources/cpu. Me and some friends occasionally co-op and duel while voice chatting, and Discord doesn't seem to create any strange lag or issues that we can see.

Indeed, that is what I meant. But you are mistaken about there not being guild-related commands in the past. In fact, if you fully explore all the commands in Diablo Battle.Net with the help command today, and keep poking around, you will see there were some guild-related commands (and others that are non-guild-related). If you try using them, they seem to be disabled, with the game telling you you can't do that or something similar.

This is why I started this thread:
- To know if I missed something in my search (which is perfectly possible: perhaps the "disabled" commands I saw just were added to Battle.Net later, and/or perhaps they never were meant to be used with Diablo? Though IIRC there was Guild Chat, but my memory could just be wrong);
- To see if further light could be shed on this in any case.

And yeah, there were ways to use channels in ways like that. Again, browsing through commands with the help command seems to reveal much about how all of that used to work.

Regardlessly, everyone's comments are very much appreciated! Thanks for the input.
