To everyone complaining about the game being always online, please stfu. The game is free-to-play. Do you honestly expect a LAN mode? That'd be like League of Legends or Dota 2 offering LAN as well (ie. stupid). It was a valid complaint with Diablo 3 because you paid $60 for it, but Path of Exile is completely free and not pay-to-win either.

You misread. Obviously, we're not expecting a F2P game to have an offline SP mode or a LAN mode. We want a traditional game that we pay for that has these things. We're saying that we want games with both offline and online functionality, and we're willing to pay for it. We're bemoaning the trend of more and more games toward always-online gameplay.

Thank you jdreyer, it's nice to know there is still intelligence out there on the internet. Yes, that was my original dissapointment, another ARPG being online only, that was all. I'll give PoE a try, it's free, which is $60 better then D3 already.
