Why is it time for people to move on? They are allowed to their register their complaints. Just because people like you don't want to hear them doesn't mean they aren't valid and that the feedback won't reach companies like Blizzard. A lot of people don't like this model for many legitimate reasons. The people who don't care got their game and aren't affected, maybe its time for them to move on.


Blizzard devs themselves have said repeatedly in interviews (as a Diablo fan I read them all) that Diablo 3 would have singleplayer, so I'm not buying all the statements by non-Blizzard employees that D3 isn't a singleplayer game. They said it is, therefore in my book it can be judged as one. No one forced them to so closely integrate the singleplayer with the online features no one asked for - they did that themselves, so the excuse that a separate offline singleplayer mode would have required too much time and effort doesn't wash with me. Again, it is just a pretty lame attempt to dress up their DRM as something other than DRM. Ubisoft got crucified for doing the same thing, and rightly so - Blizzard shouldn't get a free pass just because of who they are.
