World of Warcraft DRM?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know if Blizzard uses some sort of Sony DRM (like SecuROM) or something else for it? I've searched around and can't find anything on this besides some outdated articles and stuff. Thinking of finally giving that trial a go, providing it keeps my partition clean...

No, Blizzard uses no DRMs. They even stated once they don't believe in it.

So no memory scanning DRM or anything, like Punkbuster?

Whether thats still valid I'm not sure. Not that I think its a bad thing if it does exist to be honest.

As its brought up in this court case also.

Yeah it does appear Warden is still active as they brought in Warden 2.0 in patch 3.3.5 so not too long back.

Can you really call an anti-cheat program a DRM though?
post #10 of 24
No but he did ask about things like Punkbuster too.. Thats not really DRM either is it.
