Please don't tell me you guys are going to forcibly install pando for future updates.
I've threatened to sue pando networks as their bloatware ate my bandwidth like a chew toy
causing my ISP to temporarily throttle and notify me that I may be infected with a virus (turned out
to be PMB. It's a good thing I found it as they were ready to drop me completely if I didn't figure out what was going on. It ate 280GB of bandwidth in two weeks).
I'm going out of my way to avoid it. I found my own install cd from when I originally bought the game
last year, and am installing using that.
If it "comes back" in an update without my explicit permission you can be sure PWE will hear from me in not friendly terms (It's very illegal to install unauthorized software on someone elses computer).
PMB is bloatware pure and simple and companies really should stop using it.
At the very least a second download/update option (that doesn't use PMB) should be given.
