Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 Will Not Have LAN Support


Recommended Posts

If this is the case then I roll my eyes a bit less at the anti-piracy motives.

 

I've never heard of that, but I don't know why Blizzard is tying it to LAN, since they could just, y'know, fix b.net instead.

 

to much hassle :biggrin:

I'm not privy to either codebase, so I can only make assumptions for why they wouldn't choose to, y'know, fix battle.net instead.

 

Perhaps they see this as a cheaper overall solution (including lost sales for those that are upset about it).

Blizzard losing fanbase because they took out some feature is like a dealer losing customers because he is raising the price per gram.

"For ourselves, we shall not trouble you with specious pretences- either of how we have a right to our empire because we overthrew the Mede, or are now attacking you because of wrong that you have done us- and make a long speech which would not be believed; and in return we hope that you, instead of thinking to influence us by saying that you did not join the Lacedaemonians, although their colonists, or that you have done us no wrong, will aim at what is feasible, holding in view the real sentiments of us both; since you know as well as we do that right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must."

Personally I think Diablo 3 is better than marijuana and speed. It also lasts longer.

So will Josh Sawyer's signature be removed next because he links to profanity also? :sweat:

 

Edit: He's changed it to his twitter page, but nevertheless, the concept of filtering a link because the page contains profanity inside the content seems ridiculous.

Consider it a contact-by-first-degree rule; if your link directly opens up to objectionable content then there's not much scope for dodging it. With something like Zero Punctuation, you get to actually take a look at the site then press play to listen to the profanity. Anyway, everyone feel free to PM with objections, but I will have to eviscerate your dogs afterwards.

 

Starcraft 2 delayed until 2010.

 

Blizzard strikes again!

 

Shock and horror.

 

At this rate Diablo III will coincide with me starting my PhD.

Actually I'm rather happy with the delay. If it was coming out for the New Year shopping spree, it would probably be a rushed product.

Better late then Bethesda, I mean buggy. :)

I don't personally care about no LAN, because I generally play on bnet or single-player/solo...but hubby won't be pleased. If he wants to play, he wants to play only w/me, and doesn't like using the internet when we're in the same room. Oh well.

Is that Boxer as in the king of Terran players?

Sorry, but this strikes me as really unfair. Blizzard didn't set a release date. Blizzard never sets release dates. Occasionally they will give a rough estimate of their current target always with the disclaimer that it's subject to change added to it, and when they don't make that, people make a fuss and say it was delayed again. It wasn't. It didn't meet an in-house target, but it wasn't delayed because it was never set to be released. This is just people who took an estimate far too seriously and have an enormous sense of self-entitlement.

According to Blizzard Starcraft 2 will have always connected feature for singleplayer... wheter it will be mandatory (same **** like ubisoft's ****) or voluntarily, is yet to be seen...

I was obviously being sarcastic, I don't have any illusions about Blizzard ever releasing games on time and I don't fault them for that.
