That, and the fact that it involved a security breach, surely makes it the worst such interruption in Internet history. I created a chart that compares it to some other ones that made the news, beginning with the famous AOL and eBay outages of the 1990s."

Yes, it's free.

So there's no ongoing benefit to Blizzard keeping the Starcraft 2 servers going after about a year when the sales start to trail off.

What is it like TWELVE YEARS now and people are still playing Starcraft against one another via LAN? You think there's any chance that Blizzard is going to still be running a Starcraft 2 server in 2022?

Sometimes, being a fan of a product to the extent that you'd buy it no matter what works against your own best interest.

The ORIGINAL Diablo is still playable on, as is Diablo II, Starcraft, Warcraft, etc. Blizzard isn't one to drop their servers when the game gets old.

If mathematically you end up with the wrong answer, try multiplying by the page number.
