I'm having the same problem. I'm not behind a proxy just a home router. I'm also having problems with the game crashing when I'm playing a skirmish. The ...\Setters7\Logfiles seem to indicate the game is trying to communicate with Facebook and getting an error response. I don't understand why the program is trying to communicate with Facebook when I'm in the middle of a game (??) especially since I'm not set up to integrate with Facebook in the first place because I am having the setup error discusseed here!!! Been waiting 3 days for a response from a human at Ubi Support, maybe BB_foxbox has a better idea of what's going on??
Seems a little sloppy that the program is trying to communicate with Facebook if the user hasn't even set their game up to work with Facebook but if you say getting a Facebook error response doesn't affect the game then I guess I'll have to hope that Ubi Support can find another reason (besides "check your drivers") for why my game keeps crashing since Patch 1.07 was installed.
Patch 1.07 was released around July 6th. For some reason it is not on the Ubi.com website under their "Patches" section - which is still showing 1.06 as the most recent patch. The Facebook error was reported after Patch 1.07 so I assume it will not be fixed until Patch 1.08 (or whatever comes next - maybe 2.0?)
