Lost my internet connection for a while. I don't mind not being able to use trainers when this happens but it's a joke that you can't play some games on steam when this happens, especially when they are steam exclusive.
There is actually no way to stop the updates. I would just like to start this post by saying **** you steam. Anyways back on topic. I re-installed my game 9 times today just to get this stupid game to the retail version. I tried everything even what was suggested here. The problem is that when you go off-line it won't install or play the game. To either install it or play it you got to be online for whatever reason and than it updates on you.
I am going to start some sort of petition with Total War to get them to not use steam in there next games and just resort to the multi-player of there older games. Personally I see no difference between M2: Total War MP and E:TW MP. They are the exact same thing except E:TW requires this stupid piece of **** steam.
Now I see why I cannot find any mods for E:TW. They don't want to deal with these constant patches.
