Stop QQing. "hundreds of thousands" ? do you actually have hard data on that? because world wide it looks like MILLIONS are actually playing. I was in the game at 1:30 just fine as were plenty of other people. rolleyes.gif

Prevalence neither implies nor excuses making something a necessity.

There is no good reason for single player content to require an internet connection.

I think its a good disicion from Blizzard to move everything to their servers.

It is hosted server-side for a reason. If you don't like it then create your own server and swap out the log-in files. This is not 1996 when Blizzard did not have to worry about these things. Go look at BF3, the entire game is a complete wreck because EA doesn't have their stuff together like Bliz.

How does any of this apply to the single player experience?

Anyone should be able to play however they damn well please in single player, or on their own personal servers, without moderation from Blizzard. None of the problems mentioned would be problems if offline or non Battle.net content was kept independent, which should be a given.

Looks like those are all "baww I can't connect" reviews. Once everyone's taking a break from playing it a crapton, there'll be positive reviews.

For the record I went to bed when I got home from the midnight launch last night, started playing at about 7:30 AM and have had 0 issues whatsoever. I understand that there were issues upon launch but that was more/less expected. Just kind of funny that people are still upset over it and are using it as an opportunity to bring up the same old "requiring internet for single player is bad" argument. Get over it already, we've known for years this is how it was going to be and were you really surprised their servers got slammed? C'mon now.
