What's next?  Smart card authentication to play a game?  I really do not
like the idea of having to "log in" to play a game.  I figured it was only a
time before other companies started doing the "STEAM" like thing.  I'll try
to keep an open mind, but I do not like where this is going.

>From a recent IGN story on Battlefield 2:

" In order to play Battlefield 2 (or any multiplayer EA game nowadays)
players will have to log in through EA's multiplayer service. The good thing
about this is that it will track everything you could possibly want to know
about multiplayer. "

I appreciate it might be a bit early to talk about this, but if anyone from
Dice can expound on how (if at all) this might affect dedicated servers,
that'd be great.

Will people still be able to join with third party clients like ASE, etc?
