    Part of it goes back to D2 where the entire economy was based on player cheating (that's how all those perfect rune words, items, high runes, and so on came into the economy) and there was no fixing it without a basic reboot of the entire game and re-balancing of the gear so they never did, the cheating just went on to the end. The other part was that D3 was not supposed to be free to play, we were supposed to be buying our butts off in the real money auction house but that was a dismal failure and removed from the game. Those two things at the inception of the game led to no offline characters for D3 and while they may or may not have got past the sting of all those dupes in D2 now they aren't past claiming that no offline play reduces cheating in this game just as they did in D3. The reality is that just like D3 they aren't allowing it because they want you online where you can see other players with goods that you don't have and be tempted by them.

    I'm hyped. But I'll probably do what I always do and play through the story in SP with one char and never go back to it. I think I finally replayed D2 for the second time since it released within last year..
