They're seriously taking the stance of "lets try to make this useless intrusive game wrecking DRM a bit less game-wrecking"? Pirate versions just work. Can you be part of the online score? Probably not, but the game works. Done and done. No one should pay for software that works better when pirated.

The game itself sucks hard... for real... but, there is a "server emulator" for solo play, from the first day...

This is why it's better to use a "clean" pirated version of the game than buying the game. Also, EA (and other developers/publishers) are pretty much discriminating against people that can not afford a high speed internet connection or those that still can not get high speed internet since it's not offered in their area. For those people, they have no choice but to pirate it.

I do not believe that this quote is true. otherwise they would not be tightening the chains with each new title.
"EA as a whole has been a very reasonable company with its DRM, so here's hoping the higher-ups get on it and provide a smoother play experience."

I would love to play the new C&C game, I've played many of the previous versions and my machine is always online.

I will not be buying the game until it has a less ridiculous DRM scheme.

EA makes some wonderful products, I really hope that they fix their philosophy on this one.

I refuse to pirate software though so, I guess I don't get to play it at all.

Thanks EA for punishing your loyal fans!

Definitely won't be buying this, despite buying every other C&C game. I haven't even bought SPORE yet due to the DRM stories that were floating around when that launched.

I also wish EA would realize... if we buy 10 games with 10 different DRM systems that add "hooks" and "background processes" to a PC, that's a lot of extra crap bogging down the system and potentially causing problems.

This is why, with 25 years of PC experience, fixing PCs for a living all day, with a well capable gaming PC I use for any and every kind of information going in or out of it... I game on consoles. FOR NOW, their restrictions have been pretty traditional and reasonable for the most part.

Article states DAO is DRM free. Dragon Age has DRM... must have the CD in the drive to play.

@Umm "...have no choice but to pirate it." Really? Games aren't essential. So no you have choices, with one of them being not buying the game/not stealing.

The lengths that people try to justify piracy is amazing. Instead of making it worse by pirating more, why not do something that's actually effective like mugging the every member of the EA staff.

@lolwut: I personally buy the games, then i download the cracks to clean up the DRM crap... so I DO support the company, just not the stupid DRM crap that assumes I am a criminal.
