    I love you Ross. You fighting the good fight. Probably for no reason as I doubt he’ll have any impact… But I’m fucking rooting (I haven’t watched it yet so maybe that’ll change my mind… But On bunny watch… She can’t be trusted. )

    edit - just finished. well written, well researched… but seems a lil optimistic even for how realistic he seems to be. but damn it i hope he WE win

      It might have a chance. If even 100 game owners in France all complain to the regulator, they might investigate and issue a large fine? idk how realistic that is, but it’s plausible. Conservatively, if 100K copies sold in France at 50€ a pop (?) that’s 5 million €. That might be sufficient precedent to keep other companies from deleting millions of users purchases regularly. It wouldn’t cost $5MM to build offline play capability into games, especially if it’s designed for it to begin with.

      I’m Canadian; I’ll do my part once the petition goes live here, but I doubt Canadian regulators will do shit.
