I guess Valve really won't make a game with a 3 in the title.

No offline mode at launch, despite being able to play with AI and bots in this game:

Oh, this one gets worse w/ its business practices and non-sense.

Players found something out, from playing the Beta recently.

Playing Solo Mode blocks achievements, stat-tracking & progression:

As if the "no progression crap" in solo mode wasn't enough and always-online wasn't enough...
...This game on the PC will also use Denuvo too.

Oh, can it get worse?

YES, IT CAN!!!

As if progression wasn't enough, extra characters also cannot be unlocked in solo mode:
