StarCraft 2 without LAN

Posted on:June 29 2009

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.

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.

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
