The use of STEAM-ONLY by CA is ethically wrong because:
1. It does not need to be forced. It could be optional as other games have proven.
2. It discriminates between internet users and non-users or those who simply do not want it.
3. The `advantages` are only advantages in a very small and superficial manner. They do not counter the disadvantages.
4. It suits the company way more than the user. i.e,(no refunds outside EU countries - crucial with preorders or release day buys when selling unfinished games.
Even in EU countries refunds are heavily discouraged by Steam without threatening your Lawful Statutory Rights.
A Steam-free Option would benefit ALL. Don`t fight us, JOIN us.
