There's nothing fishy about the DRM-free version having a subset of the Steam version's features. They have made it clear since the moment they announced the DRM-free version that it won't have online multiplayer support and will be missing some other features too. They clearly stated that they are using Steamworks for the online multiplayer, the friends lists and community integration and achievements and so on and so forth. As the DRM-free version is made for people who don't want to use Steam it means any and all features which the game makes use of Steam for are not going to be part of the DRM-free version.

Again, they have clearly stated this on many occasions and there is nothing fishy about it and there is no conspiracy against the DRM-free version. It's nothing to do with worries about piracy or hacking or anything like that either. It is purely because the "DRM" they use provides the features which will be missing from the DRM-free copy.

Thank you! in other words, they dont want to maintain a central gaming server forever :)

One question remains: Will the steam copy be platform independant? so I could install it on Linux OR Windows?
In that case I would take the DRM free version as Windows, since most friends and LAN parties have windows... while only I would have Linux :)

Steamworks is one of the best online gaming platforms I've encountered. The only issues I've had when playing games online over Steam have come from the games themselves. Amusingly, Valve's own matchmaking and server allocation software for TF2 and the like is a pile of crap.

hi all! super excited about the game coming out--the ios version will tide me over until february.

meanwhile, i thought i'd get your take on the t-shirt business before submitting the survey. i'm somewhere between a medium and a large (men's), depending on the cut. is this one of those brands whose medium size tends to run on the larger side? Any help on that front would be much appreciated!

ok im up lol.

i just recived my feedback about steam and whatnot, I dont mind telling it all info which i have done so.

But i want the boxed version. i didnt really have any choice as to see if i had a t-shirt or not. I was wondering does the t-shirt still allow you to have the boxed version of the game ?.

Are letters with accents supported? (Name for Credit, address...)
Because when I get packages from Great Britain or United States, for some packages, letters with accents are replaced by symbols or a blank.

I don't have a Steam account, it does not matter if I put 'NA' ($150 reward) ?

A mort la censure!

Is there a deadline for submitting the filled form? I can't access Steam for the next ten days.

HELP! For my steam user ID I put in my steam login name and not the number requested. Now I can't seem to edit the form I filled out. What can I do now?

Thanks for asking. Well The PC where I have Steam is actually without PSU. The one I'm using right now hasn't Steam installed and is rather a bucket, sempron 3200+ 1GB RAM. I don't find it practical to install Steam and download GB of games in order to get the damn ID.
The PSU should come back in about ten days, then I could access my Steam from a decent computer with games installed in it and auto login.
