Hmm, yeah, this thing will stay off of my PC until there's an Akamai NetSession-free version. Or a version that installs NetSession when I let Ignite download something, not when I launch Ignite.
Other than that, Ignite is pretty much exactly like what a certain other F2P publisher attempted (and abandoned? Not sure). By which I mean that it has the same flaw: it downloads the installers for the games. Steam, for example, is convenient because it downloads the game files, not the installer. As long as Ignite doesn't do that, it's equivalent to the downloaders you have for your various games, i.e. it's yet another step of inconvenience between me and the game.
PS: Incidentally, the downloaders still make me rage. LET ME CHOOSE WHERE TO DOWNLOAD THE INSTALLER, GODDAMMIT! You have no business on my system SSD.
