Hi guys. I'm fairly new to Starcraft 2 and am looking to get HoTS. Last starcraft I played was Brood War.So my question is, does the HoTS single player campaign require constant online connectivity? The reason I'm asking is that I have poor internet connection at home and if its going to be like Diablo 3, playing it will be quite a pain.

Yeah you can play it offline. I just checked by disconnecting Wifi on my laptop and booting up the game and campaign.

No achievements or that stuff though.

Sweetness...thanks! Achievements are neat, but the single player campaign comes first I guess. This is definitely good news for me. Does the multiplayer against AI require internet connectivity?

Bot play requires a connection, also as a heads up this is an expansion so WOL is required to play this.

Alright, looks like im going to have to get WoL too i suppose. I was thinking of jumping straight to HoTS though. Thanks for the heads up.
