    Quote from Kblavkalash

    so what exactly will happen in 1.0.4 so everyone is waiting that much?

    It gives us all false hope that the game will finally be what we all wanted it to be.

    We will be disappointed.

    Yeah, just got kicked from a game. Anyone else considering rolling hardcore and then slowly smiling when this happens?

    Not to derail my own thread, but this would be a great instance where single player offline mode would be very useful.

    As of the time stamp of this post I have not been able to log into D3 for the past ten minutes. It slowly authenticates and then just sits on the "Retrieving Hero List..." option.

    Anyone else with this issue?

    Your extremist attitude is insulting to consumers everywhere: "THIS IS HOW IT IS AND YOU'LL LIKE IT." You also make it sound as though paying for a game somehow chains you to certain regulations. This is a fallacy; the fact that I paid for this game means that I should actually be entitled to more options, not restricted. Get your logic straight.

    I've seen you attack capitalism more than once (using adjectives such as "extremist"), and then you post the highlighted comment....and it all makes sense. As I stated in another thread - we now live in the Era of Entitlement, where nobody wants to work for anything anymore, and everybody feels entitled to everything immediately, if not before. You want all the options? Fine....but I would wager you would then be complaining about the fact those extra options cost an extra x amount of money.

    I'll go a step further - the country you currently reside in....if they tell you that you have to conform to their rules, but you disagree with them, do you feel you're entitled to the option of not following them?

    You are confusing me with people who have an unwarranted sense of entitlement. I paid $60.00 which means I am therefore entitled to certain things. As it stands I don't even have the option‚Äč to play this game in offline mode which means that I am forced to play it on Blizzard's schedule, not mine.

    To Tiths: Skyrim is a single player game. Diablo II was a single player game. I understand that D2 and D3 are different games, but D3 obviously has the potential to be a single player game but that option was not made available to us. Apples to oranges? I'm referring to two games; one that has a feature and one that does not. Your response is invalid.

    You guys make it sound as though knowing about a major drawback of a product beforehand somehow makes it completely acceptable. Again, with my car analogy, just because they tell you that you'll have to cut off your finger does not make it okay that you have to cut off your finger to own a car. I want to play Diablo III, I want to enjoy the game. But you guys are making it out to be this all or nothing deal and that because I purchased the game that I am somehow accepting that the game is perfectly fine.

    Keep in mind that extremist mindset also applies to you as well. Upset with the AH? "YOU KNEW AHEAD OF TIME THERE WOULD BE AN AH." Upset that Inferno is not properly balanced for melee. "YOU KNEW AHEAD OF TIME THAT INFERNO WAS VERY DIFFICULT." Do you see how that line of thinking doesn't work out so well?

    I love Diablo III and it is a great game. But it is annoying as hell that I cannot play it right now. Or for the next two hours. Or when the servers go down. Or most of the first week. Or when my internet connection has issues. Or that some friends of mine are chained to Hell difficulty because simply lagging for ten seconds in Inferno can mean pure death.

    So, let's get right to the point. WHY is single player not allowed? I proclaim it is because they want to push people towards the real money auction house. If someone can offer a valid reason beyond this I ask you to share it here. Keep in mind that Skyrim was ultra successful and it was a single player, offline game so any argument that cannot be applied to that game will be dismissed.

    Mavfin, if there is a problem in your hometown or country do you just keep your mouth shut and not say a word? People who love something will strive to improve upon it, not just passively sit back and allow things to remain as they are. I know I can only judge you based upon your forum posts, but you seem to be apathy defined.

    There is no "excuse" on my part because I am not being unreasonable. Blizzard is being unreasonable by saying that you have to play this game online and you have to conform their schedule. If the server isn't up, tough. If there's maintenance and you want to play on Tuesdays, tough. If you have Internet issues, tough.

    Your extremist attitude is insulting to consumers everywhere: "THIS IS HOW IT IS AND YOU'LL LIKE IT." You also make it sound as though paying for a game somehow chains you to certain regulations.

    Wow, you guys have been completely dominated by capitalistic culture. You are allowed to protest the status quo while still partaking in it. No wonder the government so easily holds people down. They could start taxing your oxygen intake and you guys would probably say, "oh, if you don't want to get taxed on breathing then just don't suck up all this precious air."

    You bought the game knowing it was this way, and now you magically expect it to change? That's not Blizzard's fault. They're not responsible for your lack of planning and your wishful thinking. They never hid the fact that it would be this way, and, you supported them, too, by buying the game, same as we did. The difference is that you're whining about something you knew was there, and we're not.

    If you wanted true single-player, then you should have not paid out your money for D3, and waited for Torchlight 2.

    Another example of a defeated individual bending over for capitalism. Diablo II was online and single player, why can't this game be. Are you actually expecting us to believe that making Diablo III simply having the single player option was too much work for the best selling PC game of all time that they couldn't offer this to us so I could, oh I dunno, play the game when I wanted.

    Yes, we knew it'd be online multi player but that's not a deal breaker. An analogy would be that if you wanted a care you would have to cut off your finger. Oh, they told you months ahead of time and you STILL bought a car?! You deserve it, right?

    Don't bend over for corporate shenanigans like this. Something as basic as just having the simple option to play the game single player is not something that is asking way too much. If they could do it for D2 there's no way it is too cost prohibitive to do it for D3.

    And any of you still bitching about the 'single-player online' thing need to put up or shut up. You knew for MONTHS that it would be this way *before* you bought the game.

    Mmmm-hmmmm. So if I tell someone I'm going to repeatedly kick them in the balls three months ahead of time they can't complain when the time comes for the ball kicking, right?

    Guys, servers are still down. Even if you COULD download the patch you wouldn't be able to play so what exactly are you upset about? That you can't stare at the login screen? Give it like two hours when D3 comes up live for everyone and try again. I 100% guarantee you'll play Diablo 3 within the next 5 hours.
