I understand. Just to clarify, I did not mean to say that there was any issue with the trainer. In fact, I never even had the trainer activated at ANY point. I'm simply pointing out that there seems to be some kind of issue with the game itself involving EAC, so if people think they can use the trainer offline then go back to online play normally, this may not be the case.
At this point, however, I'm about to just use the trainer anyway and just play offline and have fun. Ridiculous DRM ruining an otherwise great PVE game. Sad!
make sure game isn't running
do integrity check for game with steam
