The Flaws of Diablo 3

MMGN.com writes: Diablo 3 is out. You might have noticed. A handful of people have been talking about it, but hey, if you happened to miss it I wouldn't be surprised. Other things have been going on.

The story is too old to be commented.

I agree with this article. Always online DRM has to be a concept and should be scrapped after this D3 fiasco.

theres no d3 fiasco, it sold well and many people are playing and enjoying it. i also like the auction house, and always being online is cool when having alot friends playing this too... you can easily jump in and off, i always wanted a feature like that.

Selling well and having an always on internet just to play a supposed offline mode are two different things. D3 is not a fiasco in sales, maybe, but it is when it comes to DRM.

ok i can understand that they could have implemented an offline mode that restricts your offline character + equipment to be used offline only (so that no cheated items can be sold via auction house).

but i dont need that feature. i dont even want a character i can NOT play with others online. Only alone or with friends via lan... sounds pretty useless for me

@Tiqila, no one is really asking Blizzard to separate offline from online. No one even implied that offline be separated from online, like the one you mentioned "an offline mode that restricts your offline character + equipment to be used offline only (so that no cheated items can be sold via auction house)."

If you played Diablo 2, your characters offline are the ones you use online. It's just that offline was really offline, none of this always-online DRM thing. In D2, you have to click on the Battle.net button to go online.

I could understand if they implemented authentication upon log in, but to always require your internet connection just to play this, I think that's unacceptable, most especially to people who have no or poor internet connection around the globe.
