Going once, going twice... told! Battle.net They're dismantling it? Jeez, I know it was condemned by players, Blizzard, but you didn't have to take it so literally. Anyway, this isn't too much of a surprise. Blizzard employees have all but said that the service was a total failure, and it was even removed from the recently released console ports. Some might say it's two years too late, but hey, better that than never, right? Right? Guys? Also, keep in mind, this doesn't remove the "always online" mode from the game at all. So yeah, Diablo III may still dia-blow, but at least it'll do so just a little bit less.
