    I recently read that D3 will not support LAN play.


    And on a side note, Blizzard seems to be playing it cagey when it comes to answering questions about a fee-based battle.net service:

    That's code for, "yes there will be paid features of battle.net". Or maybe it will be ad-supported with a pay option to remove the ads. Etc.


    And now it seems SC2 won't support LAN play either:


    I suspect people are reading too much into this. I envision an implementation whereby you are required to authenticate with battle.net to play which is not to say that all games are hosted by battle.net. Or not. I dunno.

    I fear that achievements will negatively influence strategy and predictability in SC2. I hope I am wrong.
