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.
Yeah, they're not there yet, but they will be. Hence my emphasis on future.
