Maybe next time actually read my argument. I wasn't complaining about online activation. I am fine with it. Just a limit on the installations that bothers me.
So I am sorry for being petty for not wanting to deal with EAs tech support just because I updated my video card, or got a new processor, or maybe I wanted to play at friends PC.
1. They release a patch after the game isn't supported. Problem solved.
There is no guarantee that they are going to do that. I wouldn't trust them if they gave me their word either. I saw BS from a lot of companies to believe such promises. I am still waiting for the same promise to materialize with Bioshock thou at least they give an activation revoke tool. What is EAs reputation on support of their older games anyway, hell even newer games? How many games did they leave in a buggy state? Problem Solved?
2. Download a "no activation" crack. Problem solved.
Like I said before I'll consider getting a game if there is a crack available and there is no adverse effects in using it. It has not been unheard of that developers would introduce bugs like crashes on users that cracked their games, Vampire Masquerade Bloodlines, Titan Quest for example. Problem solved?
I just do not think I should have to resort to such measures to play a game I would have payed for (Which like I said before I still might get if I can get around that 3 installation limit) but I guess this is too much of a joke for you.
Oh well I wanted to play the game but there are plenty other fish in the sea. Maybe I'll install KOTOR again its been a while since I played it.
