Ouch. . . that sounds something like what Joint Operations does. . . my 
environment is a cyber cafe, and the Joint Ops model is a nightmare to 
try run--they tie CD Keys to the login, so you end up having to log 
customers in all the time. . . and the result of that that I have 
noticed is that people get tired of it and go play other games, even 
though JO is really pretty good.

It would be nice if EA/Dice spared a thought for how cyber cafes would 
play the game if people have to log in.
