Nha, it isn't as bad as the invalid-cd key "feature"  introduced earlier 
on. I mean, if you encrypt a cd-key, you can read it back right? I 
normally do not flame, but this unexpected feature made the game 
literally unplayable for 2 months for me. (yes, I tried all the 
workarounds, they didn't work either :-( It is not that I'm mad that 
these mistakes happens, it's the way in which EA responds and has it 
processes organized that pisses me off. From an engineering perspective, 
there is no accuse not  to fix this issue within a week, why it takes 2 
months is clearly an indication that something is not running as it 
should be ....

With kind regards,

Anton Jansen
