Games on a Networkdrive

Why is Blizzard dictating us where we are allowed to install our games?

As of various reasons I want to install Blizzard games onto my NAS but the Blizzard APP keeps telling me that my mapped networkdrive is an invalid installation directory. Any workaround or fix for that?


It’s ridiculous. I just got a NAS setup going after researching a lot about them and now I’m told that both Origin and won’t work. Unbelievable.

There is no fix because Blizzard does not care. So far too few players are affected by this (I am one of them). I hate useless restrictions - especially since it is technically a minor task. Steam does it - so Blizzard could too. But as long as only few players complain, they won’t spare the resources.

I was just trying to set this up. Guess ill have to buy new SSD then :confused: what a shame.

I don’t think so, because I can’t seem to find the post at hand quickly, but those were basically the two points you are going to mentioned. More, they looked at pick/ban systems from other games before deciding to go the direction they chose.
