I know why you did it, Blizzard. I do. People were duping things like CRAZY in Diablo II. The economy was completely out of control. People started using things like legendary rings as currency because the in-game money was so easy to duplicate.
Plus, you’ve got this “buy better weapons for real money” thing that you’re doing. I mean, I don’t really care about that. I’ll never spend a penny there, but it obviously requires constant monitoring to ensure no exploits.
So I know why you need a constant server connection for a game that can be played single-player.
But could you at least keep your DAMN SERVERS UP?! I had the Skeleton King down to about 2% when the servers just shut down. I mean, really!
