I'll flat out say it. If you bought it and they ban you after you do a chargeback you deserve it. You deserve to get had for your $60, and I hope you lose your chargeback as ruled by the bank even if SimCity still doesn't work for you months, six months, or even years later. Why? It's people like you who blindly buy this crap from companies like Activision(Blizzard)(with Diablo 3) and EA (now with SimCity) that you know will have always on DRM. You blindly go charging in then cry foul, with many of you probably going for another dip in the can of polished turds that these companies throw at us again and again, into the future.
I don't support EA or Blizzard and their insane always on DRM at all. Don't buy from Actiripoff or Electronic Greed. If you didn't buy from them then they would fall to the way side and crumble away. Better companies would rise to the top while companies like EA wouldn't have monopolies over NFL games; couldn't buy, butcher, then destroy great game companies; and then would wither away into obscurity.
These greedy companies are led by 'business men' not game developers. Their sole purpose isn't visionary, next-generation gaming. Read the resume of EA's executives. EVERYTHING they do is based upon what numbers tell them. They're not ran by great gaming minds like Will Wright, Sid Meier or Tim Schafer.
Just because the push down that slippery slope is slow doesn't mean they'll stop pushing you until you reach the bottom. And, when you reach the bottom you'll find they have placed shovels in your hands and now you'll be digging a deeper pit FOR THEM. Meanwhile, you'll have their cheerleaders continuing to praise them from the pit yelling, "THEY ARE A GOOD COMPANY BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T BURIED US ALIVE!"
Ultimately, it isn't EA's fault. Sure, they pushed you into the pit, they made you dig it deeper, and they threw nasty old bread down to you. But, you allowed them to. You let them by throwing money at their regurgitated NFL Madden games; you bought their watered downed MMO; and you bought their myriad of other games that are nothing more than eye candy with no soul.
It really boils down to this:
STOP BUYING THEIR CRAP AND THEY'LL EITHER ADAPT AND MAKE BETTER GAMES OR A BETTER GAME DEVELOPER/PUBLISHER WILL REPLACE THEM.
Now, I won't be surprised if I get reported and then banned. It always happens. People get their feelings hurt when someone with a cold, hard reality check points out who is to blame for the way companies like EA acts.
