I believe it will be a requirement that you have an internet connection to play Diablo III.

People's reactions to this are hilarious. At least this allows Blizzard to keep some modicum of honesty in people, and face it, they're going to be doing this anyways, no matter what Blizz does. You all can complain all you want, I'm going to make real-life money selling my gear.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

Just because I have to have a net connection to play doesn't mean I have to play with other people...

it will actually be the same model as SC2, you need a connection to make your account, and link your account to the benet system, but if you stop having net you will probably be able to sign in as an offline mode.

yes, because that was what EA did wrong, for C&C4 you needed to log in to play singleplayer. and all the while the game must be able to make connection to the EA servers or BANG, no more game.

Funny fact. in the first weeks after launch the EA servers were down or overloaded.

from what I was gathering form my research I was under them impresion that your Char. data will be saved on their servers and not on your Hard Drive to keep hackers and cheaters from importing an hacked char. into the multiplayer areas, well if that is the case the only way you can play the game at all is with a net connection.
