WoW, Actualy as I stated B4 only the youngins try and pirate for stupid reasons, they would try and do something as stupid as "try and get support" for a product they didn't pay for, I pirate Games As i mention b4, and i know lots of other people who do, They don't try and get support because "we" know we arn't "eligible" for it. if you do yoru as I stated b4 you don't know why us people pirate, to make a statement. We don't wnat your idiot business plans ruining our gaming fun.
example, all the tards who pirate M$ products then try and d/l win updates it's like wah????? you must be new to pirating and your also expecting "services" for free. and if any "child had mastery of" why is it that your either part of group A, or group B???
And your thinking of ooooo Nero catchs all of them. wrong, I Use both legal copies of nero and pirated and have never lost access to my pirated copies. You can get pirated copies of pretty much anything However when something has value to people they will pay for it, Just as people who have pirated your game have bought it, just as i have done with other games. It's a way to find out 1st hand how good or shitty a game is, No one wants to buy something that ends up being CRAP. It's a waste of money. and makes you less likely to buy something in the future, companies do this to themselves and hurt their own industry. look at the music industry(seriouslY wtf are they thinking)
Another reason why companies allow Full evaluations of software/Hardware of products because they belive what they are offering is good and what you want and feel you'll want to buy it, and if afterwards you don't owell on to the next customer. They don't act like omg start crying. or we just lost money. Smart companies know people want 1st hand full on experince with it.
I used a T1 for my personal Use at home because thats the only thing available(that i'm willing to justify to myself at the moment cost wise $300.00MRC you wanna pay that?) I have access to 2x DS3 for my business so yea(sure i could use it all for myself but that wouldn't be good business i'm for my customers not trying to screw them like most who have no business skills).
Hmm you obviously don't know much about Big ISP business. or the Money involved to setup a Connection in a City yet your saying just get them to install, sorry not that simple. If there is no Line for internet to get in, then that means digging a trench(or putting up poles), running cable, Manpower equipment and then, setting the correct pricing plan to offset the cost of duing said install and not making any money probbaly for several years. if a phone company/cable company will charge almost 10k just to run a 25ft-50ft run from point a to point b underground, what do you think an install would be to do a run of between 10-50+ miles???? you could do wireless however cost double to quadropple just on parts alone.
Online Systems such as Steam and Impulse and whatever else are like MMO based systems, however your not paying for them and your not getting the free content but your being forced to use such a system to play a game you like. You might aswell charge people a monthly fee because what you are doing is no different from any online MMO. Your forcing an online authentication process on us when we don't want it and thats not needed. If your going to bitch about money again then Charge a monthly fee I would be happy to pay a MRC for content and Serives that are worth it.
I have no problem paying for a MRC on something if i'm gonna get treated like a client and someone you actualy are willing to help, no one wants to buy something then get dicked around and be treated like some customer in a retail store. theres a big difference between being someones customer(one time deal) and a Client(someone you deal with on a regular basis and try and help).
So i'm making petty excuss because i paid for something yet you treat me like a theif??? /rolls eyes. hmm and people wonder why people like me pirate or why starforce(boycotted) got assraped in the community.
Regardless I'm the one who pays your(along with everyone else who buys your products) paycheck because i buy your products, us gamers are your investor hwoever we are treated like dirt. it's amazing what we the buyer can do to a seller who doens't make us happy, thats big business.
Hmm, So i sell internet I should just limit you(my clients) access time because i feel like it and disallow you to do what i don't want you to because i feel like it???
o but if i go with your bussiness pratice i could just say "if you don't like it don't use it, or sorry to bad" i don't know i'm not sure if it's just me but i don't think that will fly with my clients/potentials.
Your using an excuss and not having faith in your customers and forcing us to use something as under handed as that, then your also stating o we don't belive in DRM(yet you use an online authentication, i could be wrong here but isn't that DRM???? which is just the same as using a copy protection system and and then having a higher cost you pass onto us as a customer) but then complaining that your loseing money, instead of just Maning up and either having an MMO based system(which your halfassed doing anyways) or you do what any company in their right mind would do(have an acocunt based system with cd-key attached to it and be done with it).
Now I don;'t have a problem with impulse as an apllication itself nor do i tend to have technical problems with Steam or impluse or the like, I feel that I shouldn't be subjected to a system i'm not paying for nor am I being treated fairly.
If i wanna play offline i should be able to thats my choice, If i wanna max my upload/download and play a fgame offline i should be bale to. If i wanna leave and go on vacatio n somewhere and take a laptop with me that has game on it that i like and play it i should be able to however wait, opps i forgot to log on as offline mode or do whatever o no i'm screwed becaus ethe company thinks i'm gonna steal something i paid for, wait wah? i think i confused myself there, steal something i paid for, hmm maybe i'm just stupid but that sounds retard owell. now i can't play. yeaaaaaaa
if your being flooded with fake support ques well sorry thats your problem not mine or your "customers" if your having a hard time dealing with the fakes i'm sorry but your interal system blows then.
Kinda proves my point already on your way of doing things hahah
any grammer police on
