Blizzard is doing the exact same thing as EA, can't believe I am seeing doublethink here on bluesnews. B.Net is an entire digital distribution system, with RMT and digital purchases. That is *exactly* why the game isn't on Steam or any other digital distributor (unlike Origin games, by the way)

So Blizzard is actually even WORSE than EA. At least EA gives you the option who manhandles you, Blizzard just does it wholesale.

Yes but it's only trendy to hate EA and not Valve or BlizzActivison of all things. It's funny the hate Activision gets in a COD thread or a Guitar Hero thread, but when it's Blizzard "we take a decade a game due to lack of project management and can do no wrong" Restrictions like always on DRM (See Ubisoft hate) Or limiting online distro to just themselves (See EA/Origin hate) its somehow ok and different. Like I've said a few times, gamers are the most hypocritical bunch of douches period.

That last line kind of sums up your problem though...

'Gamers' is a community, and any one topic in that community, it has an opinion (as a whole, which we'll just say is the statistical superior), so anyone going against that opinion is a hypocrit (or as seen on this site for ages, a douche, idiot, fan boy, 'hater', etc).

In short... Groups aren't hypocritical, unless they're sheep or lemmings... People are... : )

Plus, as humans, we're all hyporcrits, so it's kind of moot.
