I am not philosophically opposed to the launcher. I have Steam, Origin, Epic, GOG already. Indeed, I tried installing the launcher because I wanted to play Arena and Planes. However, it was so broken that not only did it not work, but it stopped anyone else in the house using the internet. And a quick Google search reveals many users complaining of the same. From that experience I fear that it will be unusable for some (including me) and we will be locked out of the game. I can imagine tech support saying to take it up with the ISP, or to first reformat the hard drive and reinstall Windows, etc.
