We hate EA because EA is Forking Evil. They show blatant and malicious disregard for their customers. They've shown in the past that there is no tactic they won't stoop to to squeeze more money out of their customers. "Free public restrooms, $100 toilet paper" sort of business models.

Unfortunately, they've bought most of the good developers. So if we want to play the games we love, they are the only game in town. They know this and so don't care what we think because we're gonna pay them anyway.

i would have to say that EA have improved greatly the past year. with the exception of sims and fifa games as those to are just cash cows that can be milked bloody and people pay.

Ubisoft is the company i dislike the most now imean just look at the state of the pc relses they have done of late and now the not so micro transactions in AC:U

This is BS, it is the usual Anti-EA propaganda BS they always put out.

Don't copy and paste stuff and start a thread if you don't understand the subject. That is what they want you to do, to spread it around to cause people to not buy it etc.

First of all: I will not take your post as an insult, cause that would be childish.
But I will not call BS on that quoted guy.
There are methods to prove how many times a program accesses the SSD.
And I know how SSDs write and read, trust me.
Since my SSD is from 2011 (so it's "old" in computer terms), I would not like to have the lifespan even further decreased, if I can avoid it easily by installing DAI on a usual HDD.
I will definitely follow this issue. There are some tech experts, who can reproduce this scenario and give us clarity about whether the claim is true or not.
Oh and btw: I bought DAI and I will play now via VPN.

Same here, two SSDs in Raid-0 and one 3 TB spinning disk for data, games, and other programs.

So, up to £64.99 or $101.73 dollars. Ubi says not to worry, there's no item you can buy that you can't earn through normal progression in the game.

Riiiiight. That so reminds me of the days in Mobsters at MySpace. You could spend money and buy lots of things including these units called HG's, Hired Guns. Oh, they tell you anybody can earn them. Sure.

What they didn't talk about were the guys that bought thousands of them. Added to their best accounts, those HG's made it so their players could never or rarely ever lose a fight. Ok, so yes, I bought a few myself.

Deja Fk Vu all over again?

I can't speak for all use-cases, but after logging quite a few hours in Lords of the Fallen, I haven't seen any huge changes in my SSD usage stats or overall health.

I should go on record as saying that I do a lot of programming and VM work on my SSD (480GB M500 by Crucial) along with gaming (I typically keep 4-5 fairly active games on it at a time), with a backup array of 1TB HDDs for media storage, archiving, and restorations if necessary and I do diagnostic checks on the M500 no less than twice a month (primarily with CrystalDisk).

While LotF was making more calls than other games of it's type (Dark Souls 2, for instance), it wasn't much more than 10% over average and hardly the huge numbers I've seen bandied about on reddit.

Granted the numbers might also be skewed by the fact that I keep a 10-16GB RAMCache going at all times to speed up loads over the whole system, so a lot of calls that might have routed to the SSD may have just been RAM dumping to RAM. But in my anecdotal case Denuvo doesn't affect SSD health near as much as some people are saying.
