Enjoying their wonderful DRM I see. This is why I will not buy this game.

Bf3 does that but offers to have local data synced over the cloud data. I would hope this game would do it

Do people still expect perfection at launch?

It's amazing how many times I see this said in regards to EA. And yet people keep lining up to throw money at them.

Must be because that DRM is so effective and useful, glad to see people enjoying the game.

paying for the game doesn't bother me, its just i hate (like everyone else) that it doesn't work properly. i just had to rant, i'm sure it'll be fine in a few days.

they do. but i commend those that chose not to purchase specifically due to the DRM. i have little time to play games so server outages rarely affect me. i have played games long enough to know that sometimes your progress will corrupt or be lost for some reason. to this day i have never personally completed FFVII due to each time across 4 attempts, this game corrupted my saves upon the beginning of the 4th disc.

lost gameplay sucks. but it happens.

I thought the same thing about Battlefield 3...right up until EA shut their servers down and told the community the game would persist only on rented servers.
