After Skyrim, is it serious to sell the auto patching feature as an advantage? You know, when you get your game to be patched with a patch that brings in new bugs? This without even noticing it?

And no, Steam no automatic update feature is not reliable. The only reliable way is, guess what, disconnection from the Internet. What a revolution.

Useless to try by the way, client system like Steam or a permanent online connection brings nothing to a SP gameplay. Nothing. Try as hard as you want.
Well, first of all the more common these features become the less they'll cost to develop. Second of all none likes all features of every game, but they still have to pay for them anyway. Third the more people that pirate games, the higher the cost will be for the people who actually pay for them, so always online DRM is a win-win as long as they fix the technology as to not bother the player.

Spoiler – None related opinion, which skyrim fans won't like :D
However I wouldn't expect Blizzard to put up a crappy patch and if they did indeed release such a thing I am sure they'd release an automatic fix just as fast.
