Default Re: Update on the protection in Warhead from cry-alex

The biggest problem with this protection is this:

I already am not buying any more EA games on the PC till the remove activation limitations, I won't bother downloading the pirated version either as I have enough games to play already, but you know that there will be many more who will just end up using the pirated version. For me I am not 100% anti-DRM when it comes to games but when they do something as horrible as to bypass a very user friendy and functional DRM like steam for something as buyer unfriendly as this activation limits SecuROM BS they have gone way over the line. If they put a activation revoke tool that I could run at any time then maybe I will change my mind but even then I'd still have reservations but at least it wouldn't be what I consider as totally user unfriendly as it is now.

IMO the devs have a right to protect their IP from theft but they have NO RIGHT to prevent me from using it after I purchased it.
