It will be. All I was saying is that people are getting used to the idea of playing solely online, and that a game like World of Warcraft would be absolutely useless if the PC didn't have an internet connection.
Well, that's to be expected what with it being a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game.

WoW isn't streamed in the same way a Netflix movie is. The hard work of rendering the environment is still done on your PC.

You're talking about the kind of services a few companies are claiming they can do where you are simply streamed the already rendered video. The problem with that is latency which they're not getting around anytime soon.
