I would rather have a cheaper price than some worthless "frills" for a launch client. I suppose some don't think so. Instead I say to let them pay that extra for a subscription service for those frills. I just want to be able to launch and play my game. Without forcing me to be on the internet. Is that too much to ask? And if the company goes belly up or disappears (or an outage), I still own and can play my game.
