Same here. I thought it was strange I didn't hear about an open beta prior. Should probably reword the title...

I'm REALLY not happy with the current "Online Only" mode to play. There are simply too many limitations, let alone the DRM it applies as well.

Seriously having doubts now since I like to do Single Player at a snail's pace and the "non-idle" feature and potential progress loss are both real turn offs for me.

Cheers!

All Blizzard games will be deeply integrated with Battle.net. You're going to have to deal with it - that's the nature of making multiplayer games, even though you still have the option of playing single player.

It has yet to cause me any issues - just use your town recall spell and alt+f4 before you decide to eat dinner/etc.

Being online makes it much harder to hack indeed.
