StarCraft II multiplayer will be Battle.net only
StarCraft fans got some disappointing news today as Rob Pardo, VP of game design for Blizzard Entertainment, announced during an interview with IncGamers that they "don't have any plans to support LAN" for StarCraft II. He went on to affirm the comment stating, "we will not support it". Those seeking multiplayer excitement, even with those sitting on a PC next to you, will be required to use Blizzard's Battle.net service. Pardo's comments were later verified by gaming site IGN when they contacted Blizzard's office for clarification.
