i guess you don't realize pirated games can't connect to servers, unless a pirate sets up their own . . . so yeah, no multi player; so those that paid ALWAYS has that advantage.
It's rather about Denuvo/DRM servers going down.No activation=No game
Pirates discovered activation backup long before first cracks started to show up.
Originals can also benefit from methods developed in pirate communities.
Denuvo Backup(simply copying certain files) allows to play normally even when the game requests reactivation.
LumaEmu(steam DRM emulation) allows to pretty much make the activation permanent and play without steam(not only on Denuvo titles).
You can also tinker with saves as you can change savegame location.
And at last cracks allow offline gameplay,ensure that you can run the game anytime you want and change hardware freely(as hardware change=reactivation).
There's also SteamFix which allows pirates to play multiplayer with no problems. Indeed they can only connect to their own servers/games but the comfort of usage is the same as original (same "join friend" as on original).
