Solving the No-LAN problem (well, part of it) There are a lot of people who had planned to gather up with their friends and play Diablo 3 through in LAN. There are valid reasons for wanting LAN in Diablo 3, but many people just would've wanted to try the game in LAN with their friends before purchasing. It would've been like, maybe one or two would've buy the game and probably the majority would've after the LAN party. Before you call me evil - are you sure you haven't ever played with a friend's copy in a LAN party? So I think it's pretty understandable for not wanting to pay the full price if you just want to play it with your friends over a weekend. It doesn't make it right (nor legal) to copy your friend's game, however. My point is - there is not a good option available! What would you think if you could buy the game for a week for, say, 10 euros / dollars ? It would be like free Steam betas and campaigns. Since everything is probably run through battle.net 2.0 like Steam games are run through Steam (and that's the reason of no-lan in the first place) it would be rather easy to implement. This way people could have LAN parties and not everyone would be forced to pay the full price on a game they won't play after the event. It would be good promotion, too, as Blizzard would cater to more people. I don't see a reason Blizzard shouldn't implement new solutions if they have the technology for it. More options is better than less options, right?
