He has a valid point.

This is an online game. Why is it surprising it requires you to be online when, surprise, it's an online game.

It's nothing like Ubisoft's DRM where they only really have SP games.

Give me one good reason why this is a bad idea aside from the fact that you think Activision are evil ( Which they are, but they have nothing to do with requiring online )

The greater challenge was great for those that completed hell and needed something more. I just went back and played ES about 6 months ago and that goes to show how much longevity a great mod can provide for an aging game. True, D3 will be all new and fresh, but if players will be anything like they are with WoW (read: no life), then D3 will quite quickly become "meh" and players will need something more.

Thanks Blizzard for removing mods before they even began.

I've never heard of that mod but I can only assume that came out years after the game was released.

So again. How does this affect your enjoyment of the game when GOOD mods for games are almost always released a year, or even YEARS after a games release?

And also, Diablo is an MP game. Aside from botting, there were no mods to be used online.

But it's all good fun in the end. Honestly, I'm willing to pay for it.

It's true that eastern sun was released a couple years after the original release of D2, but lord of destruction came out almost a year and half later. In that amount of time, I'm willing to bet that some players, hardcore players, have fully completed and maybe even become bored with D3 itself.

What I find most annoying is Blizzard's attitude towards any mods before it even gets rolling. I think one of the advantages of PC gaming is that you CAN mod the game and it provides new items, challenges, etc. Sure if you don't want to mod, don't do it. But I think people should be able to if they choose (non ladder play of course). I play offline a lot and I love to mod games e.g. Unreal tournament 3, Star Trek Armada 2 (yea, old school), etc and I love having the option to alter the game as I see fit. I think this is just taking away from some of the fun which COULD be there given at least the opportunity to use mods. Well, I'm sure some clever folks will find ways around it in no time though lol

You call Diablo a MP game, and yes, while it has the capacity to be one, the game is also just as much a SP game. I know many people who never once logged into Battle.Net and enjoyed the game for multiple years. Some of them used mods, and some did not.

The fact is that Diablo II was a heavily modded game and to cut the legacy short before D3 is even released seems short-sighted to me.

Also, some mods, such as Eastern Sun, were MP as well. I remember there used to be servers for the game and that you could connect and play with others who were enjoying the mod as well.

You people act is if bots have ever been allowed, and as if it's going to stop you from doing it anyway.

The path of least resistance is to dispose of logical thinking, fill in the blanks and assume you know everything and DISMISS mods. The guy that thinks there were no mods online: turn off your reality distortion field.

Not exclusively, or even substantially.

It has a single player campaign, and it's probable that the majority of Diablo 1 & 2 players never touched battle.net.
