Exactly, this is one of the reasons I am still playing FM16, the last version not to have Denuvo. Once a game is activated I take my rig to a remote location without broadband (a study/den in the garden) and play entirely offline.
I believe that both FM18 and FM19 were cracked within a week, so I cannot understand why SI persevere with Denuvo which is pretty much defunct as an anti piracy method and why it is not removed once the game is cracked. Denuvo is not cheap so wouldn't the funds be better spent on the development of the game. Perhaps Neil or someone else from SI could explain?
