I've yet to see EA release a game that requires us to be online for SP and then yank the server so no one can ever play, online or offline. So forgive me if I don't throw a tantrum like half the people in this thread and grab a pitchfork. No one's willing to admit the possibility that they may patch the game to allow offline play before they take the server down. But that would be the opposite of flaming EA and isn't welcome in these parts.
That was kinda the point I was trying to get across but you worded it far better.
