On that note, those of you who can't tolerate EA's Origin and online-only games should tap out early before you get excited about this: Yes, you will have to register an Origin account in order to play, and yes, you must be online (crossed out *at all times*) while playing in order to start playing. EA has confirmed that you will not be kicked out if your connection is interrupted. Moving on.

EA have reportedly touched base with Gamespy on the matter, if only to stipulate that if your internet connection drops out mid-game, you fortunately won’t be booted.

Off-topic, but that would indeed be a good discussion actually. One thing I like about Urban Terror is not only has it got a reasonably consistent user base still, but it harks back to the glory days of PC gaming where you are able to download and run a dedicated server yourself, rather than relying on servers run and controlled by the publishers or licensed third-party hosts. In effect, if there's still an interest in playing a MP game which no longer has support, you still CAN because you have the files to do so.
New SimCity Requires Constant Internet Connection

It's really not a work around for piracy anyhow, as the games can be tricked into thinking they are connected or just plain changed to not needing the connection.
I'm really not sure what they accomplish with this tbh.
