Ubisoft DRM Servers Go Down
 
I am sure it has happened with other companies and games in the past. But what a bunch of BS, that legitimate paying customers have this happen.

Excellent. I hope the issues last for days, resulting in a real revolt instead of the whining.

Then, maybe companies will realize that an 'always connected' type of DRM is not the way to go.

Uh ya... that's why people shouldn't be buying these Ubi games, at all. Dipsh1ts that conform to this kind of garbage I don't feel sorry for. It's just a game. Buy something else that isn't supporting this kind of nonsense. :whistle:

I heard in a podcast(I think pc gamer podcast) that said ubisoft may remove this DRM if a succesful crack gets released. I won't hold my breathe though.

It was cracked within 24 hours.

They spent almost like a billion dollars on this fancy new DRM, and it's cracked in 24 hours. Serves them right.

I love how surprised Ubisoft is that they are under DOS attack! lol Idiots.
