Demigod pirates flood game server

Demigod PC game publisher Stardock talks about how pirates outnumber legit customers 6 to 1 when their latest game debuted last week. Stardock proudly doesnt attach DRM to their software but with these numbers, I’m not surprised if they did just that.

In a post on the game’s forums, Stardock’s Brad Wardell has revealed that the game’s servers have been flooded with users trying to play the game. More users than they would have anticipated going by sales, as Wardell says internal data shows that while the game has been purchased by 18,000 people, there have been around 120,000 people trying to play the game over the past week.

Ouch.
