Well, 200+ posts, EA is not going to take notice, cliffski (and, I guess, Derek, I bypassed 100 posts this morning) is still very rudely trying to justify the injustifiable, people still believe that DRM avoids piracy and Santa exists.

It's life as usual in Blue's.

The guys earning maybe a million a year for deciding biz strategy for billion dollar companies...

Yeah, that's exactly the problem: they're making a million a year, they're coming up with these shitty schemes, and they want us to pay for it.

I'd bet you anything that if they'd fire those idiot suits and launched the game with no DRM, they'd make a lot more profit from the game.

people who complain about stuff like this were gonna pirate it anyway

Sure!. Because people who download a crack, overwrite a couple of files and play without any hassle will have a lot of things to complain about, as opposed to people who buy the game, which needs a resident check, a net connection, and a lot of praying that SecuROM won't fuck up AGAIN this time so you'll be able to play, hoping that the useless protection scheme won't take a big bite of performance, right?.

Think, man!. The people who pirates games doesn't complain about copy protection. They don't need to!

Uh uh, REALLY stupid. SecuROM has given nothing more than problems lately, and it will be cracked in a couple of days, just like the rest.

Congrats, EA, you just lost one sale. Now go and learn from Stardock how to treat your customers, you idiots.

Seriously, who can ignore the fact that piracy is real, it exists and is the #1 threat to PC gaming?

Me, after hearing the same thing again and again for the last 20 years.

Ok, Yerli, you got a bad game with pretty graphics and sky high hardware requirements. You sold more than a million units. And you're complaining?.

Please, go join the crybabies club with CliffyB, Chris Taylor and the rest. Piracy my ass.

PS.- Yeah, we know that nowadays any sorry excuse for a game sells millions on consoles. At least be man enough to admit your true reasons.

Amen to #1

Epic and its presence in the PCGA (as that of Microsoft) is a joke.

Nowadays, all you get from Epic are stupid comments and constant whining. Mark, Cliffy, Tim, Mike, shut up and make a good game. And if you target PC, do it like you should, don't give us crap ports!

Funny seeing Florent speaking about the PC when his stubborness with SF (plus his abysmal PR) was one of the things damaging the platform and making them lose sales.

I'm glad and everything, but it is strange that Chris Taylor agreed to this after his comments about piracy last month.

Perhaps he's finally learned to shut up and concentrate on what really matters: the quality of your game.

Exactly. I buy my games, and I'm tired of hearing always all the same excuses: piracy blah blah more piracy.

Stardock and Valve are examples that if you make a good game, don't riddle it with DRM up your ass and don't overprice, everybody will buy it.

Wrong, Mr. Shelley. You make great games, but here you are dead wrong. And BTW, piracy is not stealing. Sorry.

PB is just another useless crap that doesn't avoid cheating and just consumes more memory (and even installs as an automatic service), and even gives some false positives.

Just drop it. And the protection as well. We just want the game, you know?

Since it doesn't have any trace of copy protection removal, they can go f*** themselves.

My CoH is staying in 1.71, and my OF in the shelf, thank you.

BTW, WH40K: Soulstorm?. Already out & cracked.

I'm not saying it's OK (it isn't). But what purpose did SecuROM serve?. None.

Look. They tried to protect it. They failed. The game was pirated. Isn't it time to remove the protection for us buyers?.

Also, I'm tired of all the "oh, my god, what a tremendous effort it must be to put the DVD in the drive!". Yeah, it is, when a lot of companies "get it" and don't make you jump through absurd hoops just to play the game.

I'm tired of protections so heavy that they don't let you play the game you just bought. See for example Frontlines: Fuel of War, 1.01. You have to download 73 fucking megs if you want to PLAY the game!. Here in Spain, for example, a lot of people is still connecting through 56K modems!.

I'm also tired of protections like SecuROM which install a service in your machine, or data in your registry, and when you uninstall the game, the protection IS STILL THERE, and to remove it you need to do things equal to those needed to remove a fucking virus, because they REFUSE to tell you how to remove it.

They can't control LAN or SP games. They can't avoid someone cracking the game. They should stop putting useless DRMs in the game that in the end only hurt their customers, and use that money to polish the game, do support, or whatever, just keep it.

All they get in the end is people refusing to buy games from them anymore, and the pirates are not stopped. Was it really worth it?.

All of you complaining about that probably pirated it, because it's really no big deal.

It is a big deal if I have to carry 10-15 DVDs to each LAN Party, change them, have them at hand, don't "lose" them if there is a certain amount of people.

It is if I have to keep changing DVDs in my laptop with its shitty DVD-drive which takes like 30 seconds to recognize the DVD and sounds like crazy (and also wouldn't work with some protections like StarForce).

It is because if I lose or damage the DVD and Relic's server is down, I can't even play without cracking the game.

And you know what's worse?. It's fucking useless. The game was cracked since day 1.

Oh, and I bought the original Company of Heroes plus Company of Heroes Gold, so I bought the original two times. If I had pirated it I wouldn't be complaining, I'd just crack it and play with my friends. I'm complaining PRECISELY because I bought the original.

WE deserve better from Relic. WE are the ones paying their salaries in the end.

At the very least, they should implement an "offline mode" like Valve.
