I am now left feeling that I am about to get !@#$-slapped with the next major update for D3 will also drop support for an OS that it was shipped on. Before we get all alarmist on this post, this is purely speculation as it will be the only game left of the three that will support 10.6.8 as a minimum version. I would like a straight answer on this, as to when we can expect to see a drop in OS support for this game as well. This wouldn't be a big deal if your titles weren't reliant on your servers to keep them patched and running.
I bought SC2 when it came out, and I pre-ordered HotS when that was available. Now I find I won't be able to play in march when the game comes out because you are completely dropping OS support for an OS that was indicated it would be able to run on. The feeling I take from this is that come 1.1 patch or the expansion pack to D3, I might not be able to play on my current computer anymore. What I would like is some actual transparency on this issue for both SC2 HotS and if this ever arises for Diablo 3. I have made a post in the thread I linked to asking about some clarification on this issue.
In addition, I think that as a community we shouldn't be blind-sided by these statements. Supporting these issues should not include linking players to purchasing an OS upgrade. The community as a whole should not have to change their computing environments because the devs want to drop code for an older OS that was fully supported when the game shipped when that code still runs fine now.
