    Default Blizzard ending support for XP and Vista

    As of October 2017 Blizzard games will not longer run on Windows XP or Vista. You have been warned.

    I thought you had to be mistaken about the games not even running at all but that's exactly what it says... harsh...
    Nowadays when people start to get killed by fireballs, no one says they need to dodge the fireball anymore; they say they need to go get a fire resist ring and some ice damage so they don't have to.

    Not really that harsh. It's a pain in the ass to get things to run under older windows versions because everything uses framework libraries and OS libraries to keep from re-inventing the wheel for simple tasks. When the OS libraries are so out of date they could star in porn, it's completely sensible that Blizzard doesn't want to try and ensure any new patches they do still work under that shit.
