SCII got cracked and a friend of me played it offline for months until he finally bought it.

So the always connected thing is just a thing to hurt those with instable connections.
The LAN community I go to is on a frigging island with no Internet unless you have mobile Internet from your phone or similar.
Let's just say that it wasn't fun playing a "LAN" tournament on SCII, because we had to stop because there was no way it would've worked.

Diablo that is a story based gameplay, just like SCII campaign should above all be playable without online.

Looks like this game truly will be a Call of World of Diablo III...
Uhh.. Thing

Any DRM that affects the customer who brought it will just hurt them than the person who decided to just get it for free.

...I really have to explain this?

The problem in D2 is that hackers and whatnot were creating these items out of NOTHING. Not drops, just duping/hacking, so they had access to an infinite amount of the items, and could sell it to people, and get all the profit, none of it coming back to blizz, or the gamer (apart from the item/gold they bought).

With this AH, which I note is NOT MANDATORY, YOU CAN USE THE GOLD-BASED AH, the items are from CONTROLLED SOURCES. Meaning, someone spent the time actually playing the game, and it DROPPED from a mob/boss. It wasn't created by duping/hacking.

You can then put this item on the auction house, where blizz gets a small flat fee (NOT A PERCENTAGE) for listing and then selling it. You can then use the money with no extra fees in your blizzard wallet, to purchase stuff from their online store such as WOW items, WOW game time... (maybe even merchandise like the shirts and such. I have to check).

If you want to get the money directly, there'll be a fee from a THIRD PARTY that will convert the money into hard cash to your bank/credit card/etc.

Case in point, Blizzard can prevent this by not allowing offline characters to be used online. You can dupe all you want in singleplayer that way, with no chance in hell to get those items to your MP, character.
Seems a pretty solid compromise, you pay a specific price (no SP to MP transfer) and you get something back (no protection needed for offline characters).

I'm not arguing against that. It should be possible for them to do an offline version that doesn't transfer to online, but they aren't doing so.

I was just responding to the "now they're opening AH up for legit stuff?" concern in regards to the hacking and whatnot.

I know, not meant offensively, it just seems so simple for Blizzard to remedy this problem, instead of trying to act oblivious to the legit complaints.

Your post should make it very clear why the system had to be implemented, but only because they, in all their wisdom, decided that you should be able to transfer SP to MP.
Adding that rediculous new market, caused this problem althogether.

I wouldn't want to play this game offline anyhow (D2 included). So it makes little difference to me.

Point in case is, that even singleplayer gamers need an internet connection to be able to play the game, Ubisoft has been heavily criticised for this draconian DRM and now, all of the sudden, Blizzard is the same but instead of criticised they are being complimented?

And it's definitely not "the way the market is heading" that's the lamest excuse possible, the outrage for Ubisoft's DRM was too big to become unnoticed by Blizzard, how they think this is a good thing is beyond me.
I personally don't see problem with all this so called DRM, I've never once for a video game had problem playing it from any activation requirements, it usually only takes 5mins or less to do it all.
