Well Deqer most of the time I think you're ranting and raving but this time I can definitely see where you're coming from.

I don't mind the idea of renting my games for example on Steam because there are offsets that benefit me. It's a matter of trade offs and they aren't really giving much in return for what they're asking here. The price isn't cheaper, the game itself isn't as comprehensive as previous ones, the online features are largely tertiary and added to justify the larger EA strategy, I can't save/load, there are real risks of EA shutting the game down and etc.

It's a no brainer, they are giving you less and asking for more in every way. I could -almost- get behind it if they let you at least save your city on your damned hard drive in case the servers take a dirtnap or your internet goes out but nope, they had to go balls out bullshit.
