Never, ever, never going to happen. They took all the flak before the game came out (heck their own designers talked about how inconvenient it was such as when they had to fly on an airplane), and they made a ton of sales, and they still have yet to do the real money auction. At this point it would probably require a major game overhaul to get all the code thats currently server based into the game.

If blizzard had given in and done LAN mode in starcraft 2 after release, I might believe they'd be willing to give on some issues like that, but they didn't. So not only is it impractical, but blizzard would never give in anyway, not as they are now.

Also, the petition will never get to enough signatures that matter, many people buying the game are blizzard fanboys who wouldn't admit that going online only is anything but the right decision on blizzard's part. Probably a big number of ones signing the petition didn't buy the game, and given the sales, blizzard isn't much interested in them anyway.
