What a huge wet stinky pile of political bullshit!

Very thoughtful analysis.

Nothing will change in their networking model except tweaking.

Incorrect. They have apparently changed things so that the "physics" host is one of their servers, rather than a player's machine (I almost said "console" but that won't necessarily be the case in D2 I guess). They're still not using the term "dedicated server" because something is apparently still using peer-to-peer connections, but having the physics hosted on their servers seems like it should make a significant difference.

My bet is this is to deter Piracy on the PC version. The less you run locally, the harder to pirate.
