For the Starcraft Article
And its always nice to see the message spread over...Blizzard will get forced to take actions this way, for the good that is.
Indeed, and it would be funny to see if this gets published in GameF**s as well...
1 or 2 sites featuring the article won't do anything to Blizzard, and the motives will continue to be the same.
If major gaming sites (Like IGN) start criticizing Blizzard over this then they will have no alternative but to put a "little" change to their poliecies. So lets just hope for it.

Well all we have to do is push interest on those sites toward the article, if it doesn't get us banned from those sites *cough*Game FAQ's*cough*
No my friend, you would definitively lose.
But that's just Blizzard being the regular "friendly" folk they've always been. People have their own right to cheat in singleplayer or VS an AI (still single player). Some of the comments I've seen on Kotaku that were positive for Blizzard used some lame excuse about them having the right because people could've played offline. Why go offline when in reality those crappy achievements are worth absolutely nothing? Ergo to brag about these achievements is to brag about nothing. Oh look I spent an extra 34 hours of my life that I could've spent doing other more useful stuff playing Starcraft 2 and getting the achievements.
What people fail to realize is that this is a strike against single-player privileges. Blizzard is saying that we're either gonna play the game their way or no way at all.
Then answer me this for God's sake, why the hell do people have to pay some 50 dollars or more for a game that's gonna end up in the control of Blizzard.
I mean what happened to the good old days when you'd buy a game and it would actually be yours to do with it what you want?
My advice, go Blackbeard on their asses.
Also kudos to Cheathappens for their support of their customers and thank you for the trainers you have made and the ones you will make.
