Part of the problem is that not everyone knows how games work and especially server-side games. Some requests people make they might not know is related to those taboo topics. The speed boost helps you collect more magic items so I can see how there is some gray area...
This game is expensive and not having cheats means that I am put away - I only play single player, but as my eye-hand coordination is very poor I have to resort to cheats/trainers to give me a compensatory boost. Of course I'd love to be like the guys who call me loser (I don't "lose" anything to them, anyway never going to have them on any game with me, just the 'puter) but that's the way it is - only way for me to have fun.
If Blizzard wants that crap shop and what not, they simply would SEGREGATE single-player from multiplayer. Is that so difficult?... ANYTHING at all acquiring in Single player should not be possible to use in multi. They could earmark everything with single or multi...
Single-player is a genre in itself: that's why whimpy guys like me buy their games and what the AI was made for. Period. Now why is blizzard alienating me and a lot of others like me?....
I stayed away from WOW because of this MP s..t - same thing now.
I don't understand why there couldn't be an option to opt out of the auction house completely and make the game totally single player by my choice. I may be a rarity, but I play games to relax. They are a diversion from the challenge of every day life, which I find challenging enough. I'd rather have a game that I can choose to play through the way intended, or cheat my way through and dominate. I don't want to pirate the game, take advantage of some sort of in-game money maker, or make others experience miseable. ...just want to have some fun in what little spare time I have. Thankfully, this site has made that happn for almost every game I own.
it seem like i've came in late. but i have to ask...what bout friends that drop in on your games? what happen then?
also, haven't it occur to you all that Blizzard was the original creator of WoW, but now that Activision bought out Blizzard that Activision may be the one influencing Blizzard's behavior?
i don't really care what the CEO of Blizzard said, but i'm certain that Activision was the one that wanted LAN to be taken out for SCII.
I was quite interested in asking about the friends thing. I understand the trainer has been designed to work in SP PRIVATE and that going to a public game will disable it. So what if I'm playing with my friend? He's aware of the trainer and all so what will happen if I or he invites me to a game? Is it still considered PRIVATE since no one can join out of the blue like a public game or will the trainer still disable?
