I begrudgingly understand the lack of LAN and the default to "always-on" battle.net connection required to enjoy the single and multiplayer aspects of Starcraft II.
But why do I have to log in to use the editor? Sometimes the editor lets me 'map-edit' without an outside verification, but every so often (it seems almost randomly, to me) it forces me to "authenticate my account". What is the editor doing that mandates a connection to battle.net? Is this just Blizzard's DRM overextending its hand at my expense?
Is there anything I can do so I don't have to log-in every time I want to test and/or edit my map?
