This is kind of directed at the gog staff, I was looking into buying this game "Master of Orion" the new game, however after reading the reviews regarding the required software to play multiplayer I will most likely give this a skip.

My question is, why is this information not readly available at the same spot as the rest of the information about the requirements is, just below the price?

This text is just below the price :
$ 0.10 $ OFF ANY FUTURE PURCHASE. You get free Wallet funds (our Fair Price Package) to offset the regional pricing.
DRM-FREE. No activation or online connection required to play.
MONEY BACK GUARANTEE. 30 days coverage after purchase.

Then somewhere WAY below we get this text.
Multiplayer Notice: GOG Galaxy is required to play multiplayer.

But nowhere is it mentioned that you require a wargaming account to play multiplayer, why not show this information rather than sort of try to hide it.

These are points that are really important to many people when they buy games.

There is a Subforum for the new MOO: https://www.gog.com/forum/master_of_orion_conquer_the_stars#1480666426

And AFAIK youdon`t need a Wargaming Account tp play multiplayer, but you need Galaxy, as it has the Multiplayer components inside ;)

Thanks for the reply, are you sure about the wargaming account? I read in a review someone saying that you were forced to create one and connect to your gog account to play multiplayer (See quote below).

"The game cannot be played in multiplayer without GOG Galaxy, and requires linking of one's GOG account to a WarGaming.net account. "
Still it would be nice to get the information about the Galaxy client being required for multiplayer up there with the DRM Free text, since this is not really fully DRM free because you cannot access part of the game without being authenticated.

I can see where you're coming from, but for all intents and purposes, the current Gog policy is that only the singleplayer part of its games is 100% Drm-free, whereas multiplayer functions may come with additional restrictions (CD-keys, mandatory registaration to 3rd party services, GOG Galaxy, etc.).

They totally could and should make it clearer though, that's for sure...
