Reading this discussion I wonder if there'd be any downsides in a split multiplayer community.
shaddim: Ii was not. It was from some normal forum member (and steam fan boy) following a previous thread: http://oldforums.gearboxsoftware.com/showthread.php?p=5201630#post5201630
shmerl: I had a discussion with them, and it seems the site is full of clueless people who think Steam is a solution for all problems. I'm not really interested in such environment. They closed the thread, as apparently they aren't interested in DRM-free releases. I'm not interested in their games then.
I'd have no problem only playing with the DRM-free crowd, in fact I'd prefer to do it so (not that I'm a multiplayer gamer at all).
Oh and this quote is nice:
"If consumers even know there's a DRM, what it is, and how it works, we've already failed."
