I think D2 was full of hacks because the games 12 years old. it wasn't full of hacks when it first came out, it had the same level of hacks as D3 does today a few exploits here and there but nothing serious it was really after Warden stopped caring (a good 5 years into the game) that the hacks/exploits started to roar in.
Also, who here said "we should just give up with hack prevention"? Why are people just making stuff up I don't get it, the reason we use the existence of private servers as a defense for single player being allowed is because for a hacker private server = single player. We're not saying stop hack prevention, we're simply saying at this point in time adding a single player will do no additional damage.
Ok basically it breaks down into the simple fact the games been out for over a year, it HAS been reverse engineered to the point where single player would give nothing extra to hackers to say it hasn't is simply being stubborn therefore single player can do no additional damage to the game from a hacking point of view. That is fact, I am not saying that they was wrong to not add single player at the start because this did prevent hacks for a while but eventually that method stops working because people get the files they need through reverse engineering it just takes longer.
Therefore with this in mind the only remaining reason is because they want to gain as much information from the player base as possible in order to improve the game and while this isn't a terrible reason in my opinion it's not enough to negate all of the benefits one gains from a single player mode.
Do you honestly believe that the implementations of D3 on the private severs are line for line the same exact code?
I said it in my first post on page 1. He could be told this 1000 times by 1000 different people and he won't care. He's not here to understand why he's wrong. He's here to spread garbage and troll his agenda. Most likely a hacker/duper himself looking to bring his foul shit to D3.
Either that or he's just not very smart.
