    no multiplayer mods, unless you can find a way around blizzards servers.

    Might as well play the original with D2DX instead of supporting this mess of a company any further

    Imagine needing every little bit of good PR you can get your hands on, this maybe being a last ditch effort and not even being able to pull that off without bullshit after bullshit

    Honestly, forget this comnpany - let's try to fondly remember past Blizzard titles and move on by supporting developers that deserve it.
    Wait they are removing ultra wide support? I was playing with it literally just last night

    also the reason you would play this over the original is the better graphics, aspect ratio, and it runs better on modern PC's

    There IS evidence. You're just not privy to it. Just because YOU aren't allowed to look at the evidence doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Holy fucking shit.

    Do you not know how the justice system works? The only people who are required to see the evidence are the people involved in the case. Otherwise, you have absolutely no right knowing.

    It's a standard scum bag move from a gaming company. Do you actually think they just realized that it's not safe for their costumers? How incompetent do they have to be?
    Last I checked, it was pretty easy to cancel a pre-order, but sorry if it triggered you both.

    The information provided in the group chat, emails, the sex device and lube found in the managers suitcase after the female employees suicide and passing around her explicit pictures at a work party are definitely red flags.

    These people are degenerate neckbeards that got a taste of popularity and ran with it. Basement dwellers that when receiving attention for the first time over their accomplishments finally had a chance to capitalize on it. Instead of approaching women like most men do they felt the need to try to corner them like degenerates. What is ironic is their the same people that were virtue signaling on their twitter account and adding their pronouns. They've given into degeneracy by forsaking natural law and western values.

    TCP/IP support for D2R will probably come back as a DLC

    So, what does removal of TCP/IP mean, exactly? No playing via LAN? If a friend and I was to buy and play the game on the PS4, would we not be able to invite each other to a group to play with just us two, ooor...? I'm a tad confused to be honest.

    Less confused than you think, you nailed it. It wont be an issue at all, until its an issue. I think most people who are unhappy with this are not pissed off that it wont be in the game so much as they are pissed off that Blizzard stated clearly this would be part of the game, then changed their mind and went back on their previous claims.

    You can play together, but you must play on Battle.net servers.

    People are mad because TCP/IP was a way to play that didn't rely on Blizzard maintaining servers.

    This has some likely implications on the mod community, eg. If you and I ran a modded version of the game that added new items, spells, monsters, etc. it means we probably won't be able to play together, or online.

    • D4 is in development hell and it's director has been sacrificed

    • OW2 is in development hell and it's director left

    • Blizzard's incubation unit hasn't released anything.

    • All other Blizzard games are outsourced to mixed results (SC1 remaster being decent, WC3 Reforged being neglected by Blizzard, rushed, and given too little budget, Diablo Immortal is in development hell).

    • WoW devs are hellbent on driving as many of their customers away as they can.

    Blizzard's inability to release games is one of the reasons for the company's brain drain. It's demoralizing to spend years at a company but you don't have any work to show for it. At this rate, the new startups by former Blizzard devs will put out new games before Blizzard does.

    Blizzard isn't going to perform a turn around. At best, Activision will either completely gut the studio and give the IPs to new people, but you're still going to get soulless cash grab games that won't be anything like the games borne of passion by the Blizzard of eld.
    I rarely agree with you, but this is an excellent summary.

    I get that the LAN mode and single player are hard to secure against cheating and the CLOSED battle.net variant is much less work for blizzard to keep cheating at least controlled.

    But they are removing a game feature for no real reason.

    D2 was one of the last games that still worked well offline.

    for once, I dont see any problem. No one "lans" anymore, maybe a few geeks once in a while. I'm 34, I experienced the "LAN" old times, but everything evolves...

    But.. I've watched some friend playing the beta, ok the nostalgia hits me but I can't see myself playing D2 for months... as people said there is no "end game", no new modes (like D3 rifts), it's just mobs/boss farming, endlessly with no end goal. It was ok for my 15 years old self but in 2021.... That's why I DONT LIKE remakes/remaster that use the old game as base with just graphics improvement.

    No one will ever use the "classic mode" for more than 5 mins (on a normal modern screen its just... painful for the eyes) and the whole game is stuck in the past just because of this gimmick...

    You don't know the context of these things. There used to be a principle called "innocent until proven guilty".

    So far as I know no one is claiming a connection with any far right/christian fascist groups, like a lot of people commenting on this stuff you seem to be trying to superimpose your unrelated agenda onto this.

    Blizzard has absolutely no leg to stand on if they're using "cheating" as an excuse for doing this when they're current games are absolutely riddled with cheating, gold selling, boosting and all manner of foul play to an extent they haven't ever been.

    You don't need much context to see when someone is being a liberal degenerate.

    The whole removal of TCP/IP feature reeks of one big issue.
    Being forced into having to connect to B.Net all the time means that you don't get to play all those wonderful times that B.Net goes down randomly.
    You keep a night shift schedule or something and wanna play a good ole game, during the timeframe Blizz does maint? Tough luck, sucks to be you.

    As others have mentioned - claiming it's being removed because of "security" or piracy or whatever is a crock. It's to force people into adding to their monthly user count. And, as has been mentioned tons already, the game is only still popular these days is because of mods and whatnot, that will no longer be a possible thing for this version.

    I've seen people in this thread talking about connectivity and such. But, hey, I still do some direct connect games with people, and they have better connectivity to me than being routed through whatever Blizz node they have to go through. That's just making it have an extra step, and if Blizz has any issues - which, let's face it, you know they will have issues - then trying to play anything through their services is going to suck.

    Just wait till the good times when you have to sit in a queue to connect to a single player game. Again.

    Unless he's charged with a crime there is no public interest. He's a private citizen like anyone else in the eyes of the law.

    In fact, HR departments generally will not give up the reason why someone has departed a company. That includes someone applying to another studio with Blizzard on their resume.
