I honestly don't think that's even an important issue (if we want to call that a issue at all).I might be missing something, but Bethesda’s launcher seems particularly annoying because it requires you to enter your password every time you run it (i.e. after every reboot).
Every? We're talking about 1 maybe 2 programs. I wouldn't mind, that wouldn't be an issue, and it's not even a matter of perspective, it's just not an issue. Besides i currently type my steam account password every time i turn on my pc, and i also use the authenticator at every login. So yeah...So you would be perfectly satisfied if you had to type your password for every start up program?
I get this completely. But to me, as a gamer, I won't bother with yet another game shop. I have already battle.net (probably the first online shop if I recall), steam and freaking Origin (thank you, EA, for buying the Mass Effect franchise). I have enough !Everything that is a long-running money maker, i.e. rent type games, er, I mean, regularly updated on-line games with microtransactions will tendentially move out of platforms that charge them 30%. These big companies have the infrastructure themselves to better extract money in the long run and the fan base usually spends hundreds, sometimes thousands of hours on these games, so they are invested and won't find the extra log-in too bothersome and some of them are the so called "whales" that spend large sums of money, so it's a calculated move that they think will work out.
