Does a recent update to Aurora Feint make an account mandatory?

I enjoy playing Aurora Feint, but don't want to create an account.

Recently, while playing, I was whisked to a account creation screen, and I can't get out, even if I quit/start the app.

Is this a new thing? If so, guess I'll delete the app off my iPhone. Too bad.

You need to have an account. The reason is that is stores your progress on the servers. So if you delete the app or change devices your stats won't be lost. Even if the device crashes when you start up again the most you will lose is the material you were mining. Exp, tools, and even level ups (before you select the upgrade) are all remembered

I'm beta testing the new version "Aurora Feint: The Arena" and I can't say much but you will be sorry for not playing over a silly reason as not wanting to make a username and password (I mean really... is it THAT hard?)
