Running on 2 computers with one CD-key?

Technical Support
I'm wondering if I'll be able to play on LAN if I install the game on 2 computers. I realize that we won't be able to play online, since there's only one B.net account, but can one person play as a guest so we can do 2v2 vs. computers, or 1v1, etc.
no lan buddy
...really? That's disappointing, considering there are many much older games that have LAN.

Is it possible to play online custom games as a guest?

This has been at the top of problems players have complained about since it's announcement. Sucks! But i guess piracy has finally done us all in.

As a guest you are only allowed singleplayer content. So no.



You have to buy another copy of the game, then BOTH of you log onto B.net, then start a game.


another $60 is your only solution.
This is unfortunately an issue that's been debated for over a year, I'm afraid. Due to piracy concerns it was deemed a feature to be cut. Blizzard instead has done a lot to make the content available worth this extra hardship. I hope things work out for you.
