[1UP] Diablo 3 Will Require Players to be Online When Playing - Page 6

post #51 of 115
I had planned on buying this game anyways. I'm not sure how this will pan out and will reserve judgement until I get my hands on the final working version of the game in my hands. I'm hoping for the best.

So much for this game. Was looking forward to it for so long. But now this is just another no buy for me.

The game looks like toon wow craptown pissed all over D2, then you throw this in the mix.
I'll spend my money with a dev. who doesn't hate me, thank you very much.
Also d2 was better played lan style or using hamachi for virtual lan. I mainly played with friends to avoid the cheaters...
If they could've kept diablo dark and gothic like previous versions, I would still keep this on my list, they destroyed this game ...

I imagine the equations and calculations for item creation (random gear drops) and spawns, are all done server side. This is to prevent the possibility of people abusing or finding and exploit at the $ Auction House.

Of course, if this is the case, then an internet connection will be mandatory.


Oh, and I cant wait for this game. Pre-order collectors ed. gaurenteed.

While I agree that this DRM is terrible in most cases, I do not feel it is so abysmal in this case. Before I get flammed let me point out a few things. Diablo, ever since Dialo II, has pretty much been a MMO in disguise. While being able to play Diablo III offline would be nice, I have no intention of doing so and neither will many people. Most people will be connected to online for the sake of Battle.net to be able to talk to friends and track acheivments. So most people will be online anyways, bringing the number of people actually at a disadvantage to a very small percentage. This cannot be compared to the issue with Ubisoft and Assassin's Creed as that is an entirely different scenario. Your comparing an completely single player game that has no advantage to being online to a game that connects you to Battle.net which has a large social community that they are expanding. Complain and criticize them all you want but think about how much time you will spend connected to their servers out of the entire time playing the game and tell me you are loosing anything at all. They are trying to help secure their product in a way that will impact the fewest possible people, and in this case for this game it probably is the best. I will still buy the game as it will not affect me at all and considering the entire game (battle.net, multiplayer, etc.) cannot honestly get angry over it.

Edit : Considering the ability to buy and sell items for cash and how out of control hacking/duping got with Diablo II this is another way to help them keep things in check.

But nobody played it offline. Playing D2 offline is like playing Counter Strike offline.


The people that are saying they won't buy it probably wouldn't have bought it anyway. Diablo has never really been a single player game.

I don't see the issue here personally. Diablo has always been a MP game. What's wrong with being online for an online game? Yea it's an issue with Ubisoft games since they're single player games, but diablo is an MP game. Period.

We knew this when BNET 2 was released for SC2. No big deal.
