View Full Version : When will Ubisoft will stop punishing people for buying their games?

After all: in the arms race between publishers armed with DRM, and pirates with cracks, it's always just a matter of time before the game's protection is compromised. Who does the DRM actually hurt, then? The paying consumer. Even after a pirate group makes a game available without draconian ankle-weights, the paying customer is stuck with the more limited version.
I'm not interested in support or a 'resolution' from Ubisoft, I'll just ask Steam for my money back. I shouldn't have to sit here, firewalls disabled and free of proxies, looking at some sort of 'Connection Problem' message. I'm sure I'll find them much more of an accommodating company to deal with.

Please check the pinned threads.
There is some help for the "connection access problem" you appear to be having.

You can post that all you like on peoples threads but you obviously missing (more like ignoring) the point.
UBISOFT LIED ABOUT THE DRM AND ARE NOW SAYING IT'S OUR FAULT.

I appreciate that you want to help; but beyond the general insanity of the Ubisoft DRM policy, my name-dropping of firewalls and proxies might tell you that I've already seen and tried the suggested solutions.

Then you need to contact support.
They may have more things to try.

I 'need' to? I have an alternative to that via the Steam refund. I no more 'need' to contact support and waste more time than Ubisoft 'needed' to put this silly 'protection' on the game. It's protection turned prohibition, and I'm not eager to play along with that little game.

These threads are getting out of hand, does Ubisoft have some sort of DRM to solve this?

That was why I answered with the suggestion.
As long as you know what to do, I will lock the thread since the matter is delt with and it will free up space for other threads.
