Battlefield Hardline DRM Complaints

Guru3D has a report about their experiences testing Battlefield Hardline, which leaves them complaining about how the DRM works in the military shooter sequel (thanks GameWatcher). Apparently at this point the game will decide your activation is no longer valid if you change hardware configurations more often than allowed. Here's word:

Here's what EAs DRM is doing, they don't just verify the number of PCs you work on slash use, nope .. they dare to monitor hardware changes now, which I am sure is a privacy breach on many levels. So once we insert new hardware (CPU / mobo or graphics cards) the hardware id # hash changes and if that happens a couple of times they are rendering your activation invalid.

What a bunch of rubbish ....

If this is the future for EA titles then you guys can forget about VGA performance reviews as EA is rendering that pretty much impossible now. I've now been waiting for like 3 or 4 hours and we are still locked out of the game. The only way to solve this would be purchasing another key and setup a secondary account. This means that if we'd like to make a VGA performance review on Battelfield Hardline with a card or 20 we'd need to purchase the game three times.
