The future of DRM systems!
|Garry Newman has implemented a new type of DRM system, one that affects the pirates. WarFace respects this, by far the most cleverest thing to happen this year, beside ourselves of course.
Garry Newman had to say:
"It isn't meant to be some super DRM. Any DRM you come up with is going to be cracked, so why bother trying to make it hard to crack? Making it uncrackable isn't the motive here - laughing at them is."

While we understand the frustration of publishers, and this only proves the whole concept. What we are a little wary of is the backlash response that may follow.
"However, we wonder if it was a good idea to permaban those who were caught from the game's forums. Giving people the opportunity to correct their mistakes and continue to participate in the community might have been and even more sensible and educational approach."
You need to educate pirates, but always take the higher ground... that is the curse!
