To be honest, there was a petition for the dedicated servers for MW2 that reached numbers even larger than this, and still Activision (which owns Blizzard now) didn't listen.

I wouldn't get my hopes up on this one.

if blizzard does not, then someone will release a utility to allow for it using the battle.net interface for example. its best not to resist the tide!

The main point of LAN matches is to host and play games without the need of an internet connection. LAN play has its own benefits like lag-free play.

And fun tournaments.

If Blizzard doesn't implement this, and someone else will, it's just another example of why piracy is just superior to actually buying the game, in my humble opinion. Isn't that exactly what they want to avoid?

DRM still turns me off, I can't buy the game regardless until I get a wireless adapter to get on the internet. I have no internet

And one of my friends was mad that the game did not come with LAN or something. We have the original Starcraft and I'm pretty sure we played LAN together at least twice.

The game could be pirated either way, a rumor I've been hearing for forever, and seems somewhat more likely to me, is that Acti/Bliz is trying to get at the korean tournaments, make some money off that. Without lan on the regular version, the people have to use Bnet, which gives Bliz complete control, or they have to grab the tournament version, which no doubt has strings attached.

Well this and the Activision price of £45 pretty much means I won't be buying this.

the game has been broken open completely by the Razor1911 group. the battle.net protection was useless. if they make an emu app to allow lan, blizzard is out of luck

i wonder if these people realise that 99% of major companies wont accept a petition that does not have a persons signature.
