EA's Origin service is a modern day AOL, Steam is a success story.

I honestly don't mind Steam that much (not that I love it but, yeah), this was a question to Luthiers team why they block me from hosting a local server (testing missions WIP) when not able to connect to steam, thats all.


(now of course I added a singleplayer plane temporarily to the mission testing it through the singleplayer interface, but I felt this need to be stubborn and scream out my frustration , the block is still silly IMO - I'll buy Luthier a beer if he fix it)

EA Origin on the other hand, I could kill people or even wipe out a country or two to get rid of that.

I would really like if 1C/MG would drop Steam for the IL2 series.

For IL2 I don't want to connect to an online service, when all I want is to play offline. I don't want to be forced to install the latest patch. I don't want to have the same nick in IL2 as in all the other Steam online games.

So really the set up is not Steams fault entirely. Sometimes Steam friends goes down yet you can still play online and some times the whole things down for maintence.

It will be back up in a couple hours, why dont you read a book or watch a documentary? You know you've been putting it off.

Alternatively you can come on the 1c forum and B**** and whine!

Farber, it's just not acceptable for global services like this to drop - at all! I'm pretty sure that somebody within that company will be getting a very serious roasting for today's fiasco.

Ask yourself how many times Facebook has been down since it started, or Amazon or Google or Twitter or any other public service business. It may be that in your line of work that downtime is acceptable, but in IT is just isn't - not if you're serious anyway.

Well, they made another announcement about being hacked and the investigation, so 1+1=5: They were attacked by a DoS? Dont blame me, blame Anonymous...

So they have **** security which they still haven't improved. Do you think that other major players haven't been hacked before? They don't drop. You can defend them all you like Farber but I'm telling you, it sucks to fall over like that.
