Sorry, but this "Arc" platform increases security risks.
One single hack, and bam, someone loses everything on ALL their games.
Not going to download it, and if it becomes mandatory, my money will be going elsewhere.
? Your account is already tied into all games PWE owns. ARC or not, someone gains access to your account they'll have everything anyways.

I hope that PWE doesn't pull STO from STEAM to add it to this ARC, cause i play STO through STEAM. Leave STO on STEAM where it belongs. People like me that have STO comunity Groups and are dependent on STEAM to play in/with other STO comunity groups. Just sayn'
the Steam version of STO has lots of problems.. fact all games in Steam have problems, sevear lag,glitches etc etc...
main reason why I downloaded all my game from their makers....
but meeeh im check out this new ARC... thinggiy... I rather have it from a company i trust and love then some other company that do not know their games.....
First, because I'm OCD like that, I need to point out that your link links to the very thread the link was made on.
Second, I only play STO, so I only need the game launcher. I don't use, or need, other multi-game launchers, like the well-mentioned Steam. Please tell me that the game launcher will always stay optional, for simpletons like myself.
It might actually ADD to security. Perhaps too much. I couldn't get into any Cryptic game (and PW too) while Arc was running.
Tried to get into CO, STO via Arc = "invalid username or password"
Exited Arc, no problem.
Luckily I decided to exit Arc and retry before resetting all my passwords.
Yeah I'm getting this error once in a while myself. When it happens it usually takes 2-3 log in attempts to get it to go through. I'm also getting an error that just says "Unable to log in" and then dumps me back to the main log in screen. That takes a few tries to get past as well.
I WOULD LOVE to get a Legacy pack, but I also don't want to spend a dime, unless I know for sure that ARC will never become mandatory........ this is REALLY important info, because if it ever becomes mandatory, I should start investing in a game that I will actually play... one that does not have a Steam clone between me and the game.
