I am 100% agree with you.
If I pay 60 dollars for a game legally and i'm unable to play because of garbage like the DRM server being down like many people reported with UPlay and as seen with games like the recent SimCity, what exactly would encourage me to continue paying for the game when the cracked copy doesn't have these issues at all?
If someone who stole the game can play but I can't when I paid for it, that is some bull****.
It doesn't matter if you tell me you can play now. I god damned better be able to play now, it's 2 weeks into the release. If they haven't fixed the DRM servers and you are still agreeing with them, you are beyond hope and help.
There's no goddamn reason to have the game on the Steam market at launch if they're going to require you to install and manage another form of DRM that's even worse than the former.
But that's just my opinion.
