Blizzard Entertainments senior VP for game design, Rob Pardo has confirmed a massive disappointment for the long awaited StarCraft 2 title. Yep as you may have realized by reading the title of this article, he stated that the development team,
don’t have any plans to support LAN… we will not support it… The only multiplayer available will be on Battle.net.
Now apparently the reasoning behind this is because of “the planned technology to be incorporated into Battle.net,” which they have yet to expand on.
Rob, Rob, Rob has Blizzard completely forgotten that a LAN option was one of the characteristics that made the original StarCraft so popular. Not including this in the new title would be like KFC changing their entire menu to the grilled chicken option.
It’s KFC – Kentucky Fried Chicken, I eat there because I love the deep fried flavor and awesome skin! But hey perhaps they’ve really got something amazing in store for Battle.net, we’ll just have to wait and see I guess but scroll down to see a few of the 31 new screens released. I figured that posting all 31 screens might be a bit overkill considering they’re all in-game. But you can check out the rest here.
