I understand the system & potential benefits (though insignificant in my eyes); live background updates, store special offers, live DLC notification, etc. But my laptop doesn't have wireless & even if it did, half the places I'd be trying to connect are locked down like crap, nothing like battle.net or Steam works. So I have no problem plugging a cable in every now & again at home to install/register/update a game. But I want to be able to play those games offline while I'm sitting in a hotel or airport or such. Diablo is, to me, a predominantly single player game, that I might play mp once or twice a year at a LAN party. Always online DRM won't completely stop me buying it, but it will bump it a fair way down my priority list, behind a number of other releases that I'll get better use out of.
