[Eurogamer] Blizzard "surprised" by Diablo 3 outrage - Page 17  

post #161 of 200
Once again OCN never fails to lower the bar for humanity lol. If you can't get it through your skulls that someone might possibly be dissapointed that blizzard has chosen an "always on online" DRM because they are not around an internet connection you might find yourself having a very hard time making it through life. Deal with it please and save your crying for your personal lives it's ruining our moods.

ADMFLAMEBERG - I understand what you are saying, however it is possible for a student to play video games on their off time. If you have ever been to college you would know that only 50% of college life is schooling.

I am really sorry, but posting what students should be doing with their spare time in a post that is riddled with typos and basic grammatical errors is hypocritical, and I can fully understand that poster's response.

I don't mind the occasional error, but I would've expected adherence to basic grammatical rules from somebody whom lives in the USA. Especially, if said person is so inclined to tell students what they should be doing with their free time when they attend university or college.

Secondly, if anybody it is you that is currently on the offensive towards everybody who doesn't share acceptance towards the new DRM policy, which according to Blizzard is now "Industry standard".
And whatever common sense you are talking about, you are definitely not having any of it.

I never said any thing about the DRM. What I posted was common sense, I still getting used to this different keyboard. Some times I dont see the typos til some one mentions it. Me living in the usa has nothing to do with how perfect my typing should be.

The whole point of going to college is to learn and get a degree which will help you get a good job. If you was trying to do just that you wouldn't have time to game as you will be too focus in trying to past your classes so you can get that degree .

Playing games while doing college work will take your focus off your work which in most cases causing you to fail it. Which will cause you to have to try again to get that degree. Focusing is the most important them to do in college. tho I did said if you can do both then all power to you.

Your young so you do not understand the idea of trying to stay focus trying to get that degree.
instead you act offensive just because it above your understanding of a good education.

Its not there fault that you feel you should be-able to play around at college instead of doing what you went there for. I never said the people couldn't do this or that. I said you went to college for a reason and ways you can get around the port blocking by simple asking or not staying on campus.

The reason why Diablo and Diablo II are filled with hackers and cheaters is because the engine that runs the game is incredibly easy to play with by comparison to today's games. It was built to run on Windows 98/2000, not Windows 7.

Can't blame Blizzard for your ISP inability to keep servers up. Even if they were down, not like you can't do anything else in life.
Choose your ISP freely he says. Someone is in for a surprise when they have to do that.

You´re young so you do not understand the idea of trying to stay focussed trying to get that degree.

I said you went to college for a reason and ways you can get around the port blocking by simpley asking or not staying on campus.
You have been, for the last several hours, defending the use of the "always-on" DRM that Blizzard is going to use in Diablo III, I am sorry, but you WERE talking about the DRM.

I currently, hold two college degrees in both ICT management and IT forensics, currently I am attending the Rotterdam University for teachers´ training.
Tust me, when I tell you that I do understand the importance of studying and focussing to pass for exams and tests, and trust me, your assumption that gaming while attending college surely impedes your ability to pass for said study, is all the evidence I need to assume you´re talking out of your ass.

For your reference, I have edited your quote and highlighted all the grammatical errors you´ve made, which I could find, and trust me when I tell you, a majority of these are grammatical errors, and no keyboard is causing them, nor is going to remedy them for you.

And yes, I am under the assumption, that when one lives in the USA, even basic understanding of the country´s language, especially rules about contrastion and the use of possesive adjectives and genitives is mandatory.

I'm half and half on this. I'm sorta ok with it being online only. I've got 18mbit internet always on so doesn't bother me a whole lot and probably wouldn't play this offline anyways. I do like the idea of not having to worry about stupid hackers and duping that near ruined the economy of the 2nd one.

Whilst this doesn't affect me, I do feel for those who don't have 100%/Reliable internet connection, and this is clearly a bad move by Blizzard

However, those of you saying you will no longer be buying the game because of this and the RM AH, please opt out of the Beta to give the rest of us more of a chance
