Thanks to you Ubisoft, I will now have to pay attention to which company publishes my games. I was on the fence as to whether or not I should buy Settlers 7 but in the end decided to. I immediately regretted the decision when I found upon booting it up the first time that I was subjected to your stupid DRM. If I had my time again, I wouldn't have bought it. It's a good game, but I'm typing this as I wait more than 5 minutes since clicking "Play Game" while your server synchronizes all 7 or so of my save games. Save games that haven't been added to for the last 3 times I played. But it still checks them. Oh, finally, 7 minutes after starting, it's finally let me in the game. Bye now.
Ok, I just played Settlers 7 for the second time today. It started up after only a minute or so. Maybe it only checks my copy/savegames every 24 hours or something? Still.. this is one time out of about 10 that it's started in less than 5 mins.
