I do not want to synchronize anything with any server which might or might not make it for some years until it is shut down. This is DRM nothing more. I bought this game to play on my own not bothered by any other player... Kickstarter should be able to penalize companies which are not willing to fulfill their promises.

Homing missiles are fired by a person. We are talking about machines here which can have only a vague order like "protect this facility" or "advance to this point" and during the execution of these commands they can identify encountered people as hostile based on some criterias and can "decide" to eliminate them. That does not even come close to a homing missile.

Just make it stop. I go to G-Mail to send mails, I go to Youtube to watch videos. If I wanted to socialize, I would have gone to Twitter/SnapChat/Facebook/MySpace (is there still such a thing?)/SecondLife... Google was famous for it's tools being simple, powerful and not forcing anything on the user. Good old days, eh?
