StarCraft 2 without LAN

Strange move by Blizzard: Starcraft 2 will not have LAN support, it seems like you will only be able to play multiplayer games via Internet/Battle.net.
Strange.

Yeah strange… nevertheless ppl will find a workaround, they always do. :)

That’s not strange,since they could make much more money

Not that surprising… they were never really big fans of people making lan parties with their games…

I think there were other lawsuits in the past, this is just an example.

actually didnt suprise me..since activision(especially activision) and blizzard are now profit-focus

Still a stupid move IMHO.

well of course, we dont want LAN support! That will allow LAN parties to not have to actually own any copies of the game to play together!

nevermind the fact that LAN parties have a tendency to break a network in the first place so even if they all had a copy of the game they wouldnt be able to play together due to bottlenecking the internet
