Some of the bad things i see in Origin are also in ignite.
Aeria trying hard to force players to install this software that noone wants remembers me of EA´s Origin, also unwanted by those who just want to play,not having their system sniffed out and not wanting to have some background software running that does not benefit the player at all.
This is impolite at the best and since LC is not a game that "needs" copy protection, the main "reason" for Origin does not excuse Ignite.
As ToS forbid me to take a closer look at what ignite really does i can only assume what exactly is affected by ignite by the effects i am experiencing.
LC for sure. Ever since i had to install ignite to get those rename cards, the client is unstable, program crashes and disconnects are not rare anymore.
Even after removing both Akamai and Ignite (ignite still does not uninstall cleanly), the client still is not back to normal, seems like i have to reinstall another time from pre-ignite versions.
I do not want to discuss more issues of ignite and what it brings along as most of its bad side effects have been mentioned and reported lots of times. The main issue of Iginite is still that while it may be something that aeria wants, it is nothing that the majority of players want and nothing that benefits players at all, much less since the only small benefit it had has been removed again.
To make it better - which means: acceptable :
- installation should not be mandatory or enforced
- deinstallation should work cleanly
- it should not mess with anything else (including akamai settings !)
- functions that benefit players should be implemented.
- promotion/bonus ads should appear in places where they belong, not where players not eligible could interpret they are also for them.
I believe these are the main issues with ignite.
