. but they should at least have a "tournament edition" where they use LAN at professional events. it's embarrassing every time the game times out at a live match.

this is such a good idea why dont they do this



It's probably not a trivial task at all.

they claim that it is, but pretty much everyone calls bullshit on that.

Yeah I recall something from an older interview about the reason for them not doing LAN is because they would have to rewire way too much stuff to get it to work. At the very least they've added things like resume from replay to help aid with any issues, but it's still a bit of an overall strange choice on blizz's part in the first place

i would guess that they'd be worried the tournament version would get leaked and people would start pirating it? but who knows. it can't be that its too complicated, that's dumb.
