I thought that no one plays SP Offline games anymore because everyone has a connection to the internets...

Which I could care less about, and would lead to even more hypocrisy from those that have a problem with D3 being online required vs GW2 being online required.

Wow, you simply just don't get it. No one has an issue with GW 1/2 being online because it ALWAYS required that, it has NO HISTORY OF HAVING AN OFFLINE MODE.

Again... Diablo 1 & 2 had a dedicated offline mode, it's part of the franchise, the HISTORY OF IT, it SHOULD be part of D3.

There is a CLEAR and DISTINCTIVE difference between GW and Diablo.

But, this all coming from a person who thinks that Diablo offline characters ruined B.NET Diablo play, so expectations are set pretty low.

On the topic of this thread, I'll also take a wait and see with GW2, sounds like the MT will be more intrusive then they were with GW1.

GW1 was very smooth with leveling and loot, it seemed that most items were easy to get with just typical play and no grinding. I'm not getting the warm and fuzzies that GW2 will follow suit. But again, we'll have to see.

Do you own any games you buy though?

Sure, I can fire up D1 & D2 at any point and play the entire game(s).

The vast majority of the games I purchased I can play at any point as there is no dependance on an online service.

As expected you actually have nothing to contribute to the debate other than a personal attack.

And the Pot calls the Kettle Black. /facepalm as you would say.

I present facts, you present childish retorts.

You've presented ZERO facts about anything and then resort to childish swearing when you get flustered due to the fact that you present zero facts.

We get it, you are OK with a game being online only, go have fun with it. However, you are completing missing the boat that this franchise has always offered a completely disconnected offline SP experience, that's it's ROOTS, that what it is, that's how they $$$ to make D2, and with that D3. They are "/facepalming" the fans that got them where they are today. History makes you wrong, period. Move on.

I guess I am dense. If offline and online were separate. And online was messed up. How does removing offline fix the problem?

Bravo!

Factual - 'But you’d have to start a character from scratch, because there’d be no way for us to guarantee no cheats were involved, if we let you play on the client and then take that character online.'

Whats "amateurish" is paraphrasing to make your case. When you take the paragraph together, as a whole, it is in the context that "Pardo" believes that people want to take their preexisting SP Offline mode characters to B.NET. I am pretty sure the D2 UI told (warned) you it won't be possible to transfer your character from SP to B.NET. So you see, in it's point, this WAS NOT a problem in D2, so why would it be in D3?

I'm all for differing views, and discussion is healthy, but try to stay within the rules of what english consitutes, please : )

Practice what you preach. And if you are going to go out of your way to "try" to teach grammar and English on an internet game forum, then learn to spell ("constitutes").

Don't make me have to be cool and /facepalm you.

Clearly, I have no clue what I'm talking about. Yet, here is a Blizzard employee stating all the same things myself and others here have stated regarding D3.

From your link -

"We thought about this quite a bit," said executive producer Rob Pardo earlier this week. "One of the things that we felt was really import was that if you did play offline, if we allowed for that experience, you’d start a character, you’d get him all the way to level 20 or level 30 or level 40 or what have you, and then at that point you might decide to want to venture onto Battle.net. But you’d have to start a character from scratch, because there’d be no way for us to guarantee no cheats were involved, if we let you play on the client and then take that character online."

This is about as lame a fucking reason as I ever heard (on top of your incorrect crap) and still DOES NOT indicate a valid reason for dropping a OFFLINE SP Mode that was a staple in D1 and D2. This given "reason" above is an opinion, not a fact. Any dumbass who created a true offline character KNEW they could not xfer it into B.NET. If I remember right, the UI even told you the SP character could not be used on B.NET so you knew right up front.

As usual, still no good examples.

I don't give a fuck if people are unable to play online only games.

And there's the rub, Diablo D1 and D2 are not online only games, D3 being a continuation of the story should maintain the franchise standard.

If you don't give a fuck, then why the fuck do you keep posting nonsense?

You really have no clue how Diablo 2 worked, do you?

It's pretty clear to me that Kowen does not understand the concept of Diablo's OFFLINE SP Mode at all.

I like his use of /facepalms and swears though, makes it all that much funnier when he just keeps digging that ignorance hole.

Will you shut up now? Especially since you are clearly incapable of using Google yourself.

From your link -

There are two separate game exploits for single and multiplayer game play.

I don't see where this shows a complete OFFLINE, Single Player character hurting B.NET.

So, no.

But please, I'd love to learn more.

Offline and Online was separated in D2. This is what caused the problem, thus why it's online only now.

Do you have evidence to back this? A link, article?

I'd be interested to see why a complete OFFLINE mode character messed up B.Net.

You said:

Diablo 3 is primarily a coop/multiplayer game that is far better served by having a closed system to maintain more control to prevent cheating and duping.

The Diablo franchise, as history easily shows, is NOT ONLY a primarily coop/MP game. D1 was barely, D2 was a bit more. We have D2 because of the success of D1 (which WAS primarily an SP game).

Having the offline component in D2 was the primary cause of the cheats/dupes leading to what I'm sure was an absolute logistical nightmare for the support of the game.

How so? How does an offline character, which NEVER even sees B.NET, mess up an online system? IT'S OFFLINE.

That the single player game, which still exists, requires a connection? I'm not seeing the substantial, or entire parts of that change...

Cute wording...

Should read:

"That the Offline single player mode of the game, which does not exist any longer, because it now requires a connection. I'm totally seeing the substantial and entire mode that was removed..."

Really.

God, it's like Krowen is talking to a fucking wall. I'm surprised he hasn't given up yet.

Same here, it's like an SP mode will fuck up MP somehow. Maybe you can explain how that might happen.

Well to be fair to him there's some truth to that (anti-cheat in particular) but there's also many ways it doesn't make sense.

If this was a brand new franchise I would agree 100%, however, this is a franchise that has made millions because of SP as well MP modes. As a poster stated below, back in the mid 90's, the internet wasn't as available so most people played D1 Offline. Those sales based on D1 "Offline" helped get us D2, then the internet became more prevalent and I'm sure millions still played D2 offline and helped generate $$$ for D3, and now they tell those customers, "Thanks, but fuck off", much like Krowen does. We "possibly" wouldn't even have D2 or D3 without millions of customers buying D1 (most likely playing OFFLINE).

As far as D3 MP, I have ZERO issue with it being online only, I can appreciate Bliz "trying" to keep it clean.

But... as the song goes, "It's all about the money, money, money".

Sure but there's nothing wrong with that, they facilitate most aspects of it after all. I do sympathize with it affecting people who don't care about that stuff, don't get me wrong.

Sure, but Krowen wants you to believe that Blizz is making D3 an online only game because the game itself should only be MP (which is a pile of crap).

I'm just saying, let's move past the /facepalm stuff and get right to it, it's about making MORE $$$, not because SP is no longer "the thing", it's more about you having to be online so you have to use their service and possibly buy some dudes Cod Piece +10.

It has an arbitrary online requirement (for whatever reason none of us will agree on) but it's not really designed like most MMOs in how players interact with it

Won't they be making some % of $$$ based on sales of items etc online?

General gameplay has not changed in D3 from the previous games.

Can't play it without an internet connection, game play change. Period.

Oh yeah, forgot the cool "/facepalm" thing...

It's not a substantial change.

Right, taking away an entire mode is not a substantial change... Dammit Gump, your a genius!

Thanks for making my point that peoples issue with this is almost entirely due to their own mindset of how things should be and their resistance to change

Yeah... their own mindset... right...

How would changing the name to "World of Diablo" would change sweet fuck all other than your narrow minded perception? Name change and suddenly all the features make sense to you? /facepalm

Hmmm.. lets see Gump, worked pretty well for WarCraft... went from a SP/MP to an online only model... and they changed it to... wait for it.... here it comes... WORLD OF WARCRAFT. /facepalm? Yeah... have some.

Diablo 3 is primarily a coop/multiplayer game that is far better served by having a closed system to maintain more control to prevent cheating and duping... ;but it's mostly a mindset issue because Diablo 1/2 (the last being released 10 years ago) had a separate single player mode for a time when online play was not the focus.

Then it should have a different title than Diablo 3, as it is a substantial change from Diablo 1&2 based on your statement above. I played Diablo 1/2 about 50/50, so I disagree with your assessment that Diablo 1/2 were SP focused games.

Should have been called "World Of Diablo" or something to set correct expectations.

For some with unreliable internet, oh well

What a guy.
