If it included The upcoming legacy of The void I might get interested again.

Blizz screwed up with Brazil by requiring internet and having the nearest server over 5thousand km away. Which led to 2.5SECONDS ping. It did get better on diablo3. But I won't pay for sc2 again.

And I was an avid fan at the time. Watched all the tournaments and stuff.

Blizz just screwed up and I don't give a damn anymore.

I will never be interested again thanks to the always online DRM that Blizzard now uses. No more for me, thanks.

PC. For Diablo III it is a major problem for me. I get lag if the connection is bad (which it usually is in my neighborhood), even if I am playing single player. And I get kicked out of the game if the connection goes down (which it does frequently).

I have sworn off Blizzard due to this.

Yes it is.

Even for Single Player.

And if your connection to the server is bad you can't play your single player game.

Even Diablo 3, the BEST possible connection out of Brazil is 250ms. But at the time of launch (and over a year after) of Starcraft 2, the best achievable ping was around 2 SECONDS. Making drops on single player games constant, and impossible to play multiplayer. And that is a game where Blizzard spent money and time translating and re-voicing EVERYTHING in portuguese.

I just don't give a damn about Blizzard anymore. This kind of DRM is just immoral and I won't support it.

Good to know. I would have probably purchased it without your warning.
