This fine print reads that it is restricted only to the Origins program and what it accesses for its native purpose (download and run games). As long as Origins is not running with superuser rights, it cannot access privileged folders such as Program Files (the only exception being its own installation folder) or the Windows folder. If you're paranoid you can just create a whole new Windows account and make it a standard user forcing Origins unable to read your User folder as well. If EA used it to monitor data that is not calling Origin's functions nor is being instantiated by Origins, it is grounds for EA to be sued by the consumer.
Your also in the UK, so perhaps the software functions differently there. I do know that by default steam does not. Thanks for resulting to personal insults though.
regarding the costing you realise a private server (which is rarely that private tbh) costs as much/more than a yearly subscription on most games.
but yeha i do agree mmo subscriptions are a pain these days, why i like guild wars you buy the game its yours outright no more fees, alot of smart mmo's are going to free to play atm also realising better money in micro sales with in game bonus items (normally non balance things like armor or weapon skins).
wow is even slowly getting in on the free to play action but being blizzard some idiot will mess it up and can it like they did with canning lost vikings 3 to make warcraft all thoose many years ago.
Its actually cheap to run Did it myself with many others. Back in the good old days.
Steam works the same way wherever you live or use it.
Also there were no personal insults in my post at all. You said you had used Steam since 2006 as a statement that you were right and I was wrong. I pointed out the statement meant nothing. No need to take criticism personally.
I did not see any that time. I think people are just going
