Has anyone else decided that they aren't going to buy the game without running it.

so far I have yet to actually play the game. I was kicked after 2 seconds on the server by punkbuster.


insufficient rights to OS....


WTF the game/punkbuster NEEDS admin rights to run WTF.


(in case any of you were wondering WoW runs beautifully under user rights the only thing you need admin for is patches.)


I'm going to try and play the game some later but this really got to me and reminded me of all the reasons why I don't like punkbuster.

hmmm...

I understand why they are doing that... but still.... this isn't going to stop all hacks.

The sort of hacks they are worried about could be done just as well by other means.

people will alwyas find a way to hack/cheat games.... the only way you can stop cheating is by not trusting the client.....

anyways enough about that... it just helped me once again realize why I had 0 problem with paying bliz 15$ a month. I used to play the urban terror mod for q3 and PB was always broken and would never update. I will probably just give up and run the game with admin or just play on non pb servers.

thanks for the link gryph I imagine that will help me fix the issue, not sure how much time I want to spend on it though.
