    They were probably bored and didn't know how to use the money spent by C$ers.
    So they had the idea to launch this huge project. This wasn't really a success but they decided they would try to force us to use it. Otherwise it would have been a big waste of money.

    Obviously if they had asked to the community, we would have given a lot of better ways to spend money. Now this is too late :p

    Because PWE didn't wanna get sued over the previous distribution method (some company was going around making successful lawsuits for some absurd things that they really shouldn't have been winning and PWE was targeted) so they designed their own platform to get around it and at the same time make distribution and the like more convenient for themselves.

    Arc isn't required to play the game, though, so.... yeah.



    Edit: Did some googling because I couldn't remember the exact quote on the forums Kris posted about it. http://news.priorsmart.com/parallel-networks-v-perfect-world-entertainment-l7zW/ is a relevant link. Googling the name of the people that sued shows off their history so yeah.

    Personally I think the lawsuit protection thing is a bit of a canard; ARC was probably in development before that even happened given how long it takes pw code of any stripe to appear. Its main function seems to be a corporate branding type thing, and like many others I don't use it to play, only to update, and ofc for code redemption.
    I still really miss core connect; despite its many flaws it was a powerful and useful tool :((
