You know what EA? I love your games, I’m basically an EA fan… as a whole. But now, you just lost me. Along with other fans and consumers. And I’ve thought you recreated the game play and system to attract new customers and fans, unfortunately, it’s not working. You know why? DRM. I understand why you place them. Your Sims 3 DRM was ok. I have no issues with that. Along with the Red Alert 3 and Spore DRM. Idon’t mind those. They are still tolerable. But I do like your Sims 3 DRM since it’s BETTER if not the best.
However, your step into the CNC4 DRM was a complete FAIL. You just lost me. I’ve been purchasing games from you. I got a Command and Conquer The First Decade box set… I’ve got Red Alert 3, Spore, Spore Galactic Adventures, and Spore Creepy and Sute pack… And even Sims 3, and maybe soon Sims 3World Adventures…. And I’ve also got other EA games on my backlog…. But now, you just lost my trust and will to buy anything further than this Command and Conquer 4 purchase.
I feel so terrible I actually bought it. I didn’t really like the new gameplay but I thought it was worth the try. I hesitated to buy, but I still bought it. Why? Because I thought it would be worth the try to get up to speed with the new system in case you use it for future Red Alert games, since it’s MOST FAVOURITE GAME EVER. So yeah, after installation I wondered why it didn’t ask for any serial number or so, so I wondered why… Then upon opening the game,it asked for it, so I said to myself “not bad. It’s automatically linked to my account” Until later on I realized when I got to the main menu when I got this dis connection message that I need to have an ALWAYS ON AND NOT SUCKY internet to play…
I HATE YOU EA. I don’t think you can regain me along with other consumers and fans unless you resolve this early. Your DRM for CNC4 is a complete FAIL. Plus, I don’t get to have LOCAL MULTIPLAYER. Why do we have to make everything run through the net? Why do we have to ask you if we can play now? Tsk, I can’t really find the best words to explain how terrible I feel right now. If I could only refund my purchase, I WILL!!!! I swear! I WILL REFUND MY PURCHASE! I REGRET BUYING THE GAME AND I REGRET THAT I HAVE EVER BEEN AN EA FAN.
Last time, I was very happy about your decision in the direction of DRM with Sims 3, and Dragon Age…. But now, all of a sudden, this? Tsk… Here’s a list of what I want with my CNC4 if I can’t get a refund:
- TRUE OFFLINE PLAYING
- LOCAL NETWORK MATCHES
- NO CRASHING JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN’T CONNECT TO THE LOBBY, also because you need to be ALWAYS ONLINE
- I CAN GO COMPLETELY ONLINE OR OFFLINE AT MY WILL
- ALLOW DIFFERENT PERSONA OF SAME ACCOUNT TO LOGIN AND PLAY
That would be all I think… Oh and here’s a snapshot:
