Everyone knows this is about DRM, and as far as I know it seems to be working.

I agree. All this "control" and "data mining" stuff strikes me as untrue, because you can control and do data mining just fine without requiring always-on. Steam does it. Steam does it well. If you're going after that you just do what Steam did.

Yeah, I know, people think EA is stupid and inept so they did what Steam did but dumber.

But I just don't believe it. You can do all that stuff extremely well without always-on. You cannot do DRM extremely well without it. Control and data mining aren't really enhanced by it.
