Had to activate "Two Worlds I" last evening.

There was nowhere stated I had to do this.

I was quite angry because of that, because I permanently want my "gaming PC" to be off the internet all of the time ! I just don't want … things to creep into it, no matter what.

To me, as an offline player, this is just … an insult.

So … I just thought : "What is the most effective way I can make people angry about this 'activation' like I became angry about it myself ?"

I found it out.

Via postcards. Via "snail-mail".

"In order to be able to play this game you must activate it first by sending us the accompanied postcard including your address.
It might take several days until our letter with the activation code reaches you."

This would cause exactly the same kind of anger.
