I'm fully aware of the problems the game is having and it's exactly the same as what I stated (I wasn't comparing the issue, I was comparing the modding out of a requirement), posting how to bypass things like the online requirement isn't something that any official forum is going to allow.
I'm all for the mod and I'm all for an offline mode - but it's kinda stupid to think "well it's OK to put this on the official forums" (not saying you thought that, it's aimed at whoever posted on the EA boards in the 1st place). Basically the mod found a way to bypass a requirement and what is basically the games DRM, post how to get past any requirement/DRM on any official forum and it would result in it getting deleted (regardless of the game working or not).
It's fine that the mod exists and it's great people are trying to fix this game, but it's hardly news that the official forum removed a thread on how to bypass the online requirement/DRM.

I will not buy another EA published product on any platform, including DLC. I'm done. Get f**ked.
