That's a shame. I was about to spend money on the game but since it requires ARC, guess I'll just spend my EC instead.


Seriously, you have to bribe people to install it now you're requiring it to buy ZEN?


ARC is not wanted by the players. Stop trying to force it down our throats.

There must be another way since you can still install and run the game via steam, though honestly I haven't looked into whats going on.

Steam Wallet still works and it's always been more painless than using Paypal like you had to before.

I don't have ARC and bought Zen last week during the sale. Only difference was I didn't have to 'transfer Zen to Holodeck' after buying it like I had to in the past.
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!

What? You can go to https://billing.arcgames.com/en/ and buy it there, I use prepaid cards myself.
I don't have ARC installed and will never use ARC, I use Steam.
If something is not broken, don't fix it, if it is broken, don't leave it broken.

Pretty soon you'll have to have ARC to use the monthly stipend. So I'm not surprised that they did this.

PWE probably doesn't even read this forum.
