You are underestimating the power of some hackers. Even with a cracked WCIII, some people are able to access BNET and create a different server there. Since you lived in Singapore, do you know what is blueserver? You should if you've been playing long enough.

I wouldn't mind Valve making us connect to the Valve servers via internet to play the game, but a lan option after that will be nice.
And the ability to self host would be nice
@OP : You're too naive to think disabling LAN would stop all piracy.
