I keep hearing that Diablo 3 is essentiallly uncrackable because critical assets like AI routines, loot, monster stats, etc. live only on Blizzard's servers. To whit: further investigation into this "crack" shows it's apparently only an emulated server in which there is no loot and monsters just stand around doing nothing. But I think people are underestimating just how technically savvy the warez scene big players are. They've broken previously "unbreakable" DRM before, and more than once. I expect they will figure out how to get the required data off of Blizzard's servers and get the wares version working near perfectly.
I don't condone piracy in general, but I'm totally rooting for Skid Row in this. Blizzard basically made it inevitable that someone would crack this game because of the butt-stupid decisions they've made from day one with Diablo 3. Maybe I will end up buying it eventually if they get the emulated server 100% functional. It's the only way I'd ever buy Diablo 3.
