You could download it and play it as if it were a regular off the shelf game or DLC pack by running from install directory, because EADM was nothing more than a download manager (hence the name) and could be uninstalled without any problems after installation.
It doesn't matter what EADM did with you for Black and White 2 or Burnout Paradise.

I'm simply saying that EADM WAS required for my digital Battlefield 2142 game and that the system is not a new addition born of Origin.

I don't have to be in the "Protesters of Origin" party to express my opinion, no matter what you say. I'm not saying your opinion is invalid, it's just that you're defending something that noone has seen in action yet. Let's just wait and see if Origin will be any good instead of the ugly JPEG with buttons it is right now.
You don't have to be in the "Protesters of Origin" party, but I never said you were, nor did I even mention such a thing exists.

However.

You call Origin a rip off of steam, down talk it and you have publicly expressed your objection to EA using Origin exclusively.

By your own definition, you protested. Against Origin. That sounds very fitting of someone who would be a welcome member of the "Protesters of Origin" party, but lets not get into that.

Also, I've been using Origin to download and play my games for a while now.....It works perfectly fine. Its already "any good" IMO.

It does what it is supposed to do. That's good enough for me.

If you don't like it, that's a different story, but your opinion is not a gauge on how to tell if it is working or not, or if its generally "any good".

Am I to assume that Origin has an offline mode like Steam, so you can play w/o having to be connected to the internet?

All right. What about the right to choose ? Hm ? I dont hate origin, but if i cant choose to add my game on Steam, rather then origin i feel violated. Its like a pointing me where i have to go... I can think myself, dang it.

Apart from this horrific thing, i am buying it anyway. Add it as shortcut... Its not ideal as someone said, but hey...

Though, there are still some problems, like Soldier name. Steam way of dealing with this is better, imo. Some kido used my Nickname as Master EA ID. Support told me part of the mail, which ofc was not mine.. .ah well....

Steam is more like a chat, surf, virtual library, which is double-secured. Its a perfect platform, imo...
