People really are out of touch with the SP gaming realm around here, just about every game has this today. It's not just those made by EA.

Yeah... they're just called "weapons pack DLC" or "cosmetic DLC," instead of straight up "cash shop," but in the end it's just paying for items.

As for OP, all I can do is lol.

Whatever you do, do NOT speak ill of Asheron's Call 2...

My question is this, If I have this game but am not online will I be able to do this if I decide EA can suck it?

That Guild Wars 2 login screen knocked up my wife. Must be the second coming!

So wait, your title states "EA feels", but you're quoting an IP lawyer?

Hope the BBC vetted their report better than you did.

I didn't even catch that.

*Breaks down laughing.*

This is just beautiful.

To find an intelligent person in a PUG is not that rare, but to find a PUG made up of "all" intelligent people is one of the rarest phenomenons in the known universe.

These are the same people that want to charge you by the clip to play Battlefield. EA should crash and burn, or at least be broken up altogether. Seriously, you people have no business ruining any more video games. Just a completely useless company that needs a brain scan and an enema.

Its all you F2P and cash shop gamers that are enabling game companies to go in this direction. I will never support cash shop games, soon they will all be cash shops and you will have to pay for every little thing.

Apparently EA is very unhappy with "thieves" who have found ways to quickly grind in game curency (via EA bugs) as opposed to opting to pay real cash via micro-transaction to upgrade weapons. (Shaving a few hours off their gameplay.)

From a British solicitor (wigged up lawyer):

"If you go into a baker's to buy a bun and they give you the wrong change and you walk away knowing you have been given more change than you handed over in the first place, that's theft," Sara Ludlam, an intellectual property expert at Lupton, Fawcett, Lee & Priestley told the BBC.

"So, arguably if you go into this game knowing you are supposed to be paying for these weapons and you notice a glitch allows you to accumulate them without paying, that's theft as well."


Mind you this is a SRPG

Thoughts you dirty stinkin' pirates?

In this bakery example, I'd be taking only what you gave me. Your incompetance is your own fault! Get a better QA team and test for bugs more thoroughly. Stop blaming players for your mistakes and carelessness.


Edit: Why are people still bothering with EA? Stop playing their garbage so they stop complaining about being robbed. Are their products truly unique to their genres?

Cash shops for single player games are just dumb.  Keep it up people, maybe EA will learn.

The solution is pretty simple:  don't buy anything EA makes, ever.  You don't have to know the details to know that they're going to try to force you to pay again after the initial purchase to get access to what you thought you were buying up front.

I agree completely. Unfortunately there are just too many gamers with impulse control issues who will go ahead and buy these games, bitch loudly they are being ripped off, yet still reward the companies such as EA for doing so.

If you don’t do stupid things while you’re young, you’ll have nothing to smile about when you’re old.

Considering all items are intellectual properties and still belong to EA whether you paid for them or not, they will have a very hard time trying to make a case of theft.


EA will cut their losses, apply patch and continue.

SUPPOSED TO? Excuse me?! 

My view on this: exploit away. We shouldn't tolerate cash shop crap in single player games, at least not ones there's already a fee for.

There's no excuse for exploiting. Even if it's an EA game.

There's no reason why you shouldn't be able/allowed to exploit in a single-player RPG. So long as you don't breach any laws (like using their game assets to sell your own game without their permission/license) what you do in your single player game is entirely irrelevant to the developers.

This is just a case of idiotic suits at EA trying to milk as much from players as possible, even if it makes absolutely no sense. I'm not saying companies shouldn't allowed to make money (hey, it's a private company so they can do whatever they want), but that's a case of very poor judgement from EA.

Your daily dose of common sense since 2009!

To second this, single-player games are fundamentally different from multi-player games.  In a multiplayer game, if you give yourself some super weapon and go kill a bunch of other players with it, you ruin the game for others.  In a single-player game if you do the same thing, you don't disrupt things for anyone else.  Some single-player games even have cheat codes built in or allow players to greatly modify how the game works to make it easier for players to "cheat".

If EA is trying to block how single-player games can be played and charge extra to implement things that players can do on their own, then EA is being stupid.  If you want to restrict how players can play your game, you make it online and make the server check things.

I'm not advocating piracy here, but if you've properly and legally paid for a single-player game, then do whatever you want with it.  Modifying game parameters?  Editing saved game files?  Declining to apply future patches?  Have at it.  Unless, of course, you think it makes the game less fun.

Better yet...

Hey this is EA.

Hey you player playing our MMO.

I'm sorry, you've been perma-banned.

We noticed you have been gaing XP too quickly.

Clearly you were intened to buy XP boosts to accelerate XP at this level.

You are a thief.

Futhermore, lawsuits, anti-piracy,  etc.

To appeal: create an Origin acount and buy the" I'm sorry" unlock.

I wonder if people would react as heavily if Arenanet did the same in a game where you actually affect other people, oh wait.

It is actually far better than cash shops in multiplayer games. In multiplayer games the chance that you affect someone else whether it is just visually or ingame-economically is far larger.
