Comment Re:This is Blizzard, don't forget (Score 1) 37

I didn't pay for Starcraft, and me and my friends used BNetD to play it for years. I'm not saying Blizzard was right to kill the project, but maybe they had their reasons.

Yes, and you just demonstrated them exactly. One of the reasons Blizzard's games sell so well is that when people buy them, they're not paying for the (easliy copied) software, but the unique registration key that let's them get on Blizzard's online services. With BNetD, however, people can play the games online without a key, which defeats the whole system.
