What's the malfunction in understanding that basic concept?

It's kinda like WoW...If you're not on-line you can't play it...Go figure?!?!?!
Last time I checked Diablo was not an MMO. Having coop with a few players does not make it an MMO, even if it ends up having features such as an auction house.. Unless you have a source stating otherwise, stop trolling.

I think that most people will be playing solely online anyways.

Alienware was invited to their closed Alpha/Beta...take 2 guesses at what I've been doing.

Since their first announcement, this game was always "intended" to be an on-line experience...

In fact, I remember the first press releases OVER A YEAR AGO stating "this will be a new kind of on-line experience"...

What does on-line experience mean? You have to be on-line.

I don't see/understand why this is at-all shocking considering it's always had the montra/mentality of being a "new on-line experience".

In the beginning everyone "oooh'd and ahhhhhh'd" now you QQ over the same exact thing they said pre-developement?

That there is genious.

Obviously you stopped reading somewhere through the thread. Let me go ahead and recap:

Everyone was/is terribly excited about the new features. In fact I'm sure that they will make the game a lot more interactive and enjoyable. What people are complaining about isn't the addition of new features dude with a caveat. It's the removal of features that many of us liked. The lack of mods is a strike, and the inclusion of a single player mode in any variety shackled to a online requirement is ridiculous to a lot of people.

The one feature being added that has spawned a lot of flames is the addition of pay2win. If this was a full MMO (see WoW) people would be livid. Thankfully regardless of new online features, this isn't a MMO.

Cool that you don't share that opinion.

since blizzard seems to be doing much better with their online based games (WOW, Starcraft 2 Multiplayer, the new BattleNet) im assuming from here on out they will just be pushing most of their games to be online only or atleast need to be online to prevent cheating and such.

Honestly im glad they are making it online only for one big reason. Doest anybody else remember Jamela? That program where you could make your own character any level you wanted and play online? That ruined online play for D2 for me.....i hated it. i would get on a public game with a friend and we would just want to play it out and then some level 99 (who we know wasnt really a 99 but a made character) would jsut destroy me and my friends when all we were trying to dow as have fun. or randomly jumping into a game to just play with new people and finding some camping 99 killing everyone....it was stupid

I can see this being a good idea...even though many people are going to rage out...i just dont like what they are doing with the AH

Wrong. The Diablo series is categorized as hack and slash action RPGs. In an MMORPG you CANNOT play in a world without other players. In Diablo III you can play the game alone, but it just requires you to be online to do so. This does not make the game an MMORPG.

I don't share that opinion because from day 1 it was stated that Blizzard was overhauling Battle.net for the purpose of Diablo 3 and SC 2 to be On-Line.

Look back to 2009, google it...You'll find I'm 100% correct.

Since day 1 of developement, this game was aimed at being an MMO, it was stated such at Blizzcon by the dev's...They wanted full on-line integration with some MINOR solo capability...

That's exactly what they've done and bots actually ruined Diablo 2 so, I don't quite see what the issue is.

At first for the above it was clamored over but, now, it's being shunned for the same exact things they stated they were going to do since day 1.

You don't overhaul battle.net and move it off of an entire Oracle base just to do it people, come on...That costs serious $$$$.

...So, you're in charge of defining genre's now?

Who's to say you can't have an MMOPRG that's also solo capable?

I mean obviously, you're god and creator of the "new on-line experience" that they promised so, let's here what's exactly planned, please?

Coming from someone who's in alpha/beta...I'm telling you, you're wrong...This is a "new on-line experience" and it's very much worth playing just the way it is.

However, I very much am looking forward to your reply, oh god of defining "new on-line experiences".

It was also fun in LAN as well~ but let's conveniently ignore the things that don't affect us. Let's all flip off all the people who travel and our soldiers abroad. The selfishness on this board is really kind of ridiculous. The majority of the opinions here are based on "It doesn't affect me so I don't care." I don't have to be affected by something to still understand why it's not a convenient nor a positive thing for gamers.
