80. Re: Diablo III Launch Date Announcement Nears Feb 24, 2012, 17:08 Slashman
The problem with the online requirement isn't so much that most people have internet connections. Some people have pretty horrible internet connections. Some folks live in the boondocks or other areas where net connections are spotty.

Its fine to feel smug and say 'too bad', but there is a difference between requiring an online activation (even if its required whenever you start the game), and requiring a consistent and decent internet connection for a smooth play experience. Especially for a game like Diablo...

I have a decently reliable connection...but I don't my game to literally stop and allow me no progress when I'm playing. I can pull my network cable in the middle of Sanctum, Orcs Must Die, Skyrim, Terraria, Mount & Blade, Prototype, Xotic and pretty much all my games and continue to play with no interruption. If I want to play D3 single player, then I expect that my experience doesn't go in the toilet because my ISP suddenly hitches or I kick the switch on my DSL modem. That's just retarded.
