Reverser laments crypto game protection, says wares dead after 2018

Re: Just works

I would have no objection to drm in games IF...

the last action of the publisher before shutting down their auth servers was to release a patch that removed the drm from the game enabling people that have purchased the game to continue playing if they wish.

Yes it would mean that the game would then effectively be free for anyone that can get hold of a copy (torrents etc) but since the publisher would no longer be selling or supporting the game by that point they could not argue that this represented any lost sales (in fact the counter argument could be that this older "free" version may lead to purchases of a newer version of a game in the series)
