Simcity - How to ruin a million dollar franchise

Sooo... this, is unacceptable.
When you pay 60$ or € or gold nuggets for a game you should be able to play it. For real. This is the reason why I won't be recording any SimCity videos anytime soon. I Love the franchise, always did. And EA managed to do something that I thought was impossible, ruin the SimCity name. They knew they would face heavy resistance to the always online requirement. They had to make it absolutely smooth. They failed miserably. The game launch was a disaster. A Diablo III like disaster. And EA's and SimCity's name was tarnished.
Is this really better than piracy?
