But it *requires* me to create an EA account.
Then it *requires* its hooks to be permanently sunk into my Steam.
I'm reluctant to shackle my Steam account to EA's wheezing mutant cousin,
and it feels like the only reason this collection exists
is because EA knows it.

"Right now, Steam players will need to link to an EA Account upon first bootup. However, they will not need the Origin Client installed"

So why does EA need a permanent link to my Steam?
For what *possible* reason?
To sell whatever data they can vacuum up off to the highest-bidding faceless data harvester they can find,
after their more brazen attempt at user privacy violation failed to gather momentum on their own malware platform.
Here's an unrelated picture of a face.
I'm not going to say anything, just take a look and then see how you feel:

Its about multiplayer as the game will be on multiple stores not just Steam so it can't use the Steam provided multiplayer to connect all players together.

Origin doesn't need to be running.
So that's not the reason.

You're complaining about data privacy while using Steam? You do realize that Valve collects the same information as well about system preferences, hardware, etc?

Yeah well Valve is the company I chose to do business with.
They were necessary to buy the games I wanted to buy.
Valve lets users opt-out,
and Valve has a clean track record,
and Valve doesn't sell user data to the highest bidder.
I'm not OK with EA just shoehorning themselves in by force to grab my data then giving it out like candy.
And if Origin is anything to go by, it's not the “same” information that EA collected, merely about hardware.

Don't play it, then bee-yotch, there are plenty of open-source free versions of TD and RA1 on ModDB.

Valve isn't squeaky clean either, they tried to make people pay for mods.

Considering Generals has a ****-ton of mods I'm not sure about your point there

OpenRA probably runs better, and will stay relevant longer.
